Gaming Intelligence Hot 50
Eddie is one of Australia’s youngest billionaires after co-founding Easygo with Bijan Tehrani in 2016, which paved the way for the launch of Stake.com in 2017. It is the cryptocurrency casino and sports betting business that has underpinned his success though. Stake.com only launched in the UK in December 2021, but has not been afraid to splash the cash to get its brand out in the market through sponsorship deals, including Watford and Everton football clubs last year, and partnerships with the likes of Argentine footballer Sergio Agüero, Formula One driver Pietro Fittipaldi and his brother, Formula Two driver Enzo Fittipaldi. It is a fast-growing business and is taking things to another level with the recent launch of its new casino streaming channel, Kick. This lets gamers post streams of their gameplay for a 95% share of revenue, and comes after Twitch banned gambling content across its platform. From seemingly out of nowhere, Stake.com is ready to take off, and Eddie will be there every step of the way.
