RPGG Media, the operating company of Puntt, has confirmed that it has entered a licensing arrangement with esports software publisher Aquarius AI Inc.
The partnership will grant Vancouver-based Aquarius AI the exclusive rights to operate the Puntt esports wagering platform for Canada.
Launched at the start of the year, the Puntt platform has merged traditional pool betting dynamics with unique esports match play, and tournament attributes focusing on player performance.
The planned licensing deal will allow Aquarius AI to service tote pool betting markets on esports events, opening a brand new range of wagering markets to Canadian consumers.
Phill Adams, CEO of Punttsaid: “RPGG Media is driven by a desire to offer esports fans a safe, fair and well-regulated platform to wager on the tournaments they love. We are delighted to be working with Aquarius to bring our platform to many more in the esports community. Aquarius’ online marketing experience will help us grow our audience and increase customer choice in a market that is currently dominated by bookmakers.
At present, Canadian gambling laws only allow parlay and pool bets on single sports events, thus limiting the depth of wagering markets.
Aquarius pointed out that the Puntt platform will deliver vital new engagements for the restricted Canadian sports betting marketplace, allowing consumers to wager on CS:GO tournaments and further professional esports content that will be added by RPGG Media.
Graham Martin, CEO of Aquarius said: “We are delighted to join with Phill and his team, with our technology and Puntt’s unique Esport betting platform, this rapidly expanding new marketplace of entertainment, will be very exciting.”
