Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - April 30, 2024) - Champion Gaming Group Inc.

A copy of the FFCTO will be posted to the website of the Canadian Securities Administrators. The Company expects the FFCTO to remain in place until such time as the Annual Filings have been made and the FFCTO has been revoked.

Furthermore, the Company announced the appointment of Gerard Maynard as a director of the Company following the resignations of Ken Hershman and Sean O'Leary as directors of the Company.

The Company would like to thank Ken Hershman and Sean O'Leary for their service and wish them well in their future endeavors.

Mr. Maynard has over twenty-five years of experience in the tech sector, having begun his early career on the team that developed the 407ETR in Ontario, Canada, to most recently as a principal of Relai Neuro, a testing and data management business for the rehab and mental health treatment industry. As a distinguished technology executive, he has extensive experience in sales, operations, technology oversight and fundraising.

Following these changes, the Company's board consists of four directors, two of which are independent. The appointment of Mr. Maynard remains subject to review and approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
