Luckchemy Collects a Team of Advisers and Supporters to Make a Revolution in Online GamblingReading Time: 3 minutes

There are just a few basic questions investors should ask themselves before participating in any ICO, especially an iGaming ICO. Luckchemy is a blockchain startup that is going to revolutionize iGaming.

Founded in September 2017, by a team of experienced developers in the iGaming industry, Luckchemy provides blockchain-based games with fully verifiable results. Luckchemy hopes to become a global platform that will embrace players from all over the world. And that’s why it has every chance to do this:
Luckchemy followed their roadmap, perfectly. The platform is being developed on schedule with regular updates and the team has been actively releasing new games like lotteries and scratch cards.

Luckchemy had a working MVP before even going to their ICO.
Project co-founders Alexander Tatarchuk and Alex Topchienko have more than 13 years of managing web products for both mobile gaming and digital marketing. CMO Mark Beck has more than a decade of experience in the gambling industry scaling some of the largest social casino apps in the world.

In April 2018, New Alchemy performed a comprehensive audit of Luckchemy and gave several recommendations, after which a second audit was conducted. New Alchemy came to the conclusion that Luckchemy’s smart contracts were extremely well protected and there were no critical vulnerabilities for hackers to exploit.
A show of support from a reputable organization is an extremely important benchmark for a young startup entering the market. With that in mind, Luckchemy is extremely excited to announce its new partnerships with Mr.Bet and KrowdMentor.

Mr.Bet is an online casino with a wide array of games, like slots, table games, and live casino titles. Mr.Bet puts Luckchemy’s blockchain-based games directly on the Mr.Bet platform. This means Luckchemy gets more exposure on the platform while Mr.Bet gets to increase its library. Also, Luckchemy provides its technology to Mr.Bet, benefitting Mr.Bet’s platform and mobile app. The partnership also establishing a publishing pipeline for future games.

Another Luckchemy’s big partner is KrowdMentor, a strategic investment and advisory firm empowering blockchain startups, funds, and entrepreneurs. KrowdMentor excels at fundraising, communication management, business and technical development, and more. As a multifaceted strategic organization, their role in guiding successful ICOs is difficult to overestimate.

In addition to large projects, a number of advisors joined the Luckchemy’s struggle for a new quality of iGaming.

Brad Yasar, KrowdMentor’s co-founder, and Managing Partner will help Luckchemy with managing and building relationships with investors, executing marketing & PR, community management & communication strategy, ICO Management & strategy and financial analysis.

He has started and bootstrapped several companies from inception to maturity over the past 20 years. As the co-founder of Blockchain Investors Consortium, Brad has participated in dozens of successful crowd sales, which have raised over $500 million from 10,000s of investors since 2016. Brad is a director of Yasar Corporation where he mentored, advised, and invested in more than 50 companies.

Sameer Gupta is a serial entrepreneur and technologist. Sameer specializes in bringing innovative consumer-facing products to market. His recent ventures have focused on gambling and skill-based gaming. Sameer will help Luckchemy with market strategy, connections, and partnerships with lotteries, fundraising.

Ofir Ventura has been practicing law for over 14 years. In the past two years, he has expanded his role surrounding blockchain technology. His blockchain experience consists of working with a peer to peer cryptocurrency exchange and a unique one of a kind proprietary e-wallet company. Furthermore, he has built up successful companies from the ground up in the eSports and Gambling industries. Ofir will provide Luckchemy with games development and legal consulting. He also helps Luckchemy in building connections with other lotteries.

There is a lot of money to be made out there on a lot of promising projects, but sorting through the ICOs can seem daunting, confusing, and like an accident waiting to happen. When in doubt, remember to ask yourself these key questions about the ICO you have considered investing in and use Luckchemy as an example of what to look for.

And for those interested, Luckchemy’s ICO is currently underway. Visit Luckchemy today to find out how to receive tokens at a 40% discount.

Big Fish Games migrates to new HQ, with plans to reel in top talent with eye-catching space

Big Fish Games migrates to new HQ, with plans to reel in top talent with eye-catching spaceReading Time: 3 minutes

Big Fish Games has a new headquarters to go along with its new leader.

The Seattle-based gaming company, which was acquired by Australia’s Aristocrat Technologies for $990 million earlier this year, moved into its new office in Seattle’s Pioneer Square this week. In the appropriately named Maritime building, Big Fish has leased all the office space — 187,000 square feet in total — with more than enough room to house its 633 Seattle employees plus the more than 100 open positions the company is advertising online.

The move is another sign of a new era for Big Fish. In 2014 it was acquired by Churchill Downs Inc., operator of the famous Kentucky Derby racetrack, for $885 million and sold again to Aristocrat earlier this year.

Just this month the company announced former Electronic Arts and Zynga executive Jeff Karp is joining Big Fish Games as managing director and president. He is taking the helm permanently after former CEO Paul Thelen left following the Aristocrat acquisition.

Aimee Paganini, lead senior game producer for Big Fish, has worked through all these changes. In her six years at the company she’s worked on several of Big Fish’s flagship games like Fairway Solitaire and Panda Pandamonium, and right now her latest game, Let’s Dish, is in Google’s open beta program. Paganini, who leads a team of 27 people, said not much has changed with her day-to-day operations despite the company shuffling between two parent companies in four years.

“I’m really fortunate that I have a boss and a general manager that allows our team to run as a small business,” Paganini said. “They’re the investors, so we need to make them happy.”

But the new headquarters will bring major changes for Paganini and everyone else at Big Fish. Employees felt like fishes out of water in the old HQ space at 333 Elliott West, which Big Fish steadily grew into over the years.

The company started looking for space two years ago, and at the time it surveyed employees to see what they wanted. The main gripe was lack of transit connections. The old office, which is just a few blocks down from where Expedia is setting up its Seattle HQ for a move next year, only has access to a couple of bus lines. Pioneer Square is the transit hub of the region, with hundreds of buses and a light rail line just a few blocks away, and plenty of access to restaurants and other attractions.

“We were out on a deserted island or at least peninsula on Elliott Avenue, so coming here it really opened up the ability for people to go out and experience the neighborhood,” said Evan Cottingham, director of real estate and facilities for Big Fish.

The old office was never a perfect fit for Big Fish, as the company gradually took on more and more space in the building from Classmates.com. Gaming companies have different needs than traditional office users — testing areas, big desks to spread out multiple devices and monitors, lots of collaboration spaces for meetings — and none of that really existed in Big Fish’s old space.

For Big Fish, the new digs will help with recruiting in the competitive gaming hub of Seattle that includes tech giants like Amazon and Microsoft and others prominent gaming powerhouses such as Valve and Bungie. Before, Cottingham said its interview rooms were “windowless dungeons,” and now they look out over the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains.

Nearby spaces for human testers will have multiple cameras that track eye and hand movement of users when playing.

“Everyone assumes that a game company, a tech company, is a playground, but there’s a lot of work,” Cottingham said. “I can’t fathom how much Aimee and her team does to produce a game, so I need to design for all those ideas.”

Big Fish leased the building close to two years ago in a deal brokered by Seattle real estate company Clark Fadden and has been waiting for its new HQ since. During that time, the Maritime Building has undergone a complex and unique renovation. Crews dropped three additional stories on top of the 108-year-old structure to add to the office space.
