TORONTO, April 14, 2022 - Wondr Gaming Corp. (CSE: WDR) (CSE: WDR.WT) (OTC: WDRGF) (the "Company" or "Wondr") is pleased to announce that, further to its press releases of December 10, 2021 and March 21, 2022, it has completed the previously announced acquisition (the "Transaction") of 100% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Gamelancer, Inc. ("Gamelancer"). As initial consideration for the Transaction, the Company issued 212,338,900 common shares of the Company (the "Common Shares") and paid USD$7,000,000 to the shareholders of Gamelancer on a pro rata basis. All Common Shares issued in connection with the Transaction are subject to voluntary lock-ups of up to 36 months and a statutory four month hold, with 10% of the Common Shares released on closing of the Transaction ("Closing") and 15% released every 6 months thereafter over the next 36 months. Further details of the Transaction, including future consideration to be paid to the former shareholders of Gamelancer, can be found in the press release of the Company dated March 21, 2022 on www.sedar.com.

"Gamelancer generates over 1 billion+ monthly video views across our 22 owned and operated channels. With over 26,500,000 followers on TikTok, Instagram, and Snapchat, predominantly located in the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia, we now have the largest gaming focused media inventory on the most relevant social media platforms. With our owned & operated network, when Gamelancer hosts a campaign, we choose which of our 22 channels to broadcast it on, while some other players in the market have to hire influencers, streamers and gamers to generate views and attract brands. The future of gaming media will be dictated by ownership of your network, and advanced data analytics demonstrating you know your audience intimately. Gamelancer has both of those qualities in spades." said Jon Dwyer, Chairman & CEO of Wondr.

"We are thrilled to build a growing company in the gaming space. Our Gamelancer network will act as a launch pad to elevate the gaming ecosystem globally. We love adding value to the industry through content, games, technology and hardware. Gaming is truly something that is just getting started and we plan to be at the heart of it." said Razvan Romanescu, CEO of Gamelancer.

In connection with the Transaction, the Company has changed its name to Gamelancer Gaming Corp. At the opening of the markets on or around April 21, 2022, the Company's common shares will commence trading under the new name and the new ticker symbol "GMNG". The Company's new CUSIP number is 36468K104 and its new ISIN is CA36468K1049. There is no consolidation of the Company's share capital in connection with the name change.
