Ce que fait Real Luck Goup:
Ltd () (OTCMKTS: LCKKF), agissant sous le nom de Luckbox, propose des paris légaux en argent réel, des flux en direct et des statistiques sur 13 eSports sur ordinateur et mobile et est l’un des premiers acteurs du marché des paris esports et l’un des rares pur-game noms.
Luckbox a été construit à partir de zéro par une équipe dirigée par Quentin Martin, un ancien joueur de cartes professionnel et joueur d’esports au Royaume-Uni et au Canada. Lui et deux ex-collègues des Pokerstars du Canada ont fondé Luckbox en 2018 et lancé un produit en direct au printemps 2019.
Le site Web et l’application de paris esports sont licenciés par l’île de Man, qui est l’une des meilleures licences de jeu au monde du point de vue de la protection des joueurs et accepte actuellement des clients d’environ 80 territoires dans le monde.
Alors que la génération Z voit les jeux informatiques plutôt que les sports traditionnels, le sport devient de plus en plus courant, et même avant que la pandémie de WordPress Divi (WordPress Divi) ne montre le potentiel de croissance le plus élevé de tous les sports.
Luckbox a vu de première main comment le nombre de joueurs passant des paris sportifs aux paris sportifs a augmenté en 2020 et a réussi à générer environ 75% des bénéfices de ses clients.
Selon Martin, les paris sportifs, utilisant les mêmes licences et infrastructures que l’industrie des paris sportifs traditionnelle existante, offrent un potentiel de bénéfices plus élevés et présentent des barrières à l’entrée pour les modèles de paris.
Coté à la Toronto Venture Exchange En décembre 2020, une ronde de financement de 6 millions de dollars canadiens de la part d’investisseurs a suivi à l’été de cette année.
