Calgary, Alberta and Isle of Man–(Newsfile Corp. – February 17, 2021) – Real Luck Group Ltd. (TSXV: LUCK) (the “Company”) and its subsidiary companies doing business as “Luckbox” (the “Group”), a leading provider of legal, real money esports betting, is pleased to announce agreements with four leading payment processing partners.
The Company has signed agreements with Skrill, NETELLER, ecoPayz, and Trustly which will offer a broad range of payment options, including Visa, Mastercard, ApplePay and Google Pay, to customers in more than 100 countries worldwide.
Quentin Martin, Real Luck Group Ltd. CEO, said: “We are delighted to be working with four of the most prestigious payment providers in the betting industry. These deals provide a broad range of payment options to players in key markets for us, not least in Latin America, Europe and the CIS region, where esports betting is hugely popular.
These partners are highly trusted and will help the Company offer a frictionless onboarding process for new players, as well as an improved user experience for our existing players.
We were able to negotiate these new partnerships in a short span of time because of the anti-money laundering and consumer protection requirements associated with our Isle of Man gaming license. The Company is exploring other potential payment partnerships and will provide updates should we choose to engage other parties.”
