Why This New Platform Could Capture a Large Share of the $51 Billion Online Gambling Market
  • Historically there have been only three recession-proof markets: alcohol, tobacco and gambling. Alcohol and tobacco are in decline, but online gambling is growing at about 10% year-over-year
  • Despite its fast growth, online gambling still has three big structural problems (described below)
  • JOYGaming’s innovative blockchain-based platform largely solves two of the problems, and addresses the third.

How it works currently
JOYGaming will get developer games licensed and compliant
JOYGaming offers a 4 step solution for developers
Operator A
JOY Gaming Ltd
Operator B
Developing games in the gambling industry can be a difficult and lengthy process; especially when confronted by a low revenue share, regulatory requirments and integrating your games in the big game providers backend. The larger game developers have their own in-house game development teams and tend to use only a handful of independent game developers, leaving the smaller independent developer with limited access to this ever-growing market. Likewise the end users (game players) miss out on potentially exciting new games and must trust online casino operators who offer little transparency to their players.
Additionally, the current business model of traditional developers isn’t reaching all potential players; particularly millennials who want more from their gaming experience; including financial anonymity, trust and transparency.
JOYGaming is here to address all these.

The Story State of Online Gambling Today: 3 Big Problems Limiting Growth

1. Gamers don't trust the Casinos

Gamers often wonder if the casino cheated them out of their winnings and therefore don’t play as much. They are also reluctant to try exciting new games, if they are not backed by a well known brand.

2. High Costs and High Risks in Launching New Games

Even if an independent game developer creates a fun new game, it is costly to acquire players and offer liquidity, and near-impossible to get a gambling license—the compliance burden is too high for the little guy. Further, the use of third-party payment solutions reduce profits.

3. Lack of Innovation and Monopoly

Due to the high barriers to entry, a few large and boring companies control the online gambling market. They have little incentive to innovate or launch exciting games that could attract new casual gamers (especially among millennials).

How JOYGaming Uses Blockchain to Solve the 3 Problems
JOY Gaming's online gabling platform is comprised of:

A. Blockchain-based ‘Smart Contracts’ to Create Trust

In traditional online gambling, the process behind the result of a game is a ‘black-box’.

A gamer has to blindly trust that game-play was ‘fair’ i.e. the casino did not cheat.

On JOYGaming’s platform, a game’s rules are encoded in a transparent ‘smart contract’ that runs automatically and allocates winnings.

At any time, the player can verify that the result is true and game-play was fair.

Smart contracts have two important properties that insure this:

  • Immutable: No one can tamper with the result
  • Decentralized: No single authority has control as exact copies are publicly available on multiple nodes (computer servers)

B. Gamers Control their Funds Using ‘Smart Wallets’

In addition to the fair-play guaranteed by smart contracts, gamers-not the casino-control their funds using smart wallets.

Only when a game ends, does the smart contract access the player’s wallet, crediting or withdrawing tokens depending on who won.

C. Independent Game Developers Can Easily Get New Users and Earn Money in “Real-Time”

JOYGaming is a marketplace similar to Apple’s App store. Developers who create innovative games can get users more easily and earn money in “real-time” as the games are played.

D. Game Developers “Ride on the Back Of” JOYGaming’s Gambling Licenses

Independent game developers no longer have to worry about gambling licenses or regulatory compliance. Once we approve a new game, it becomes legal to play in all countries where JOYGaming operates.

E. Casinos Help Game Developers with Liquidity and in turn get New Exciting Games

Established casinos on the platform offer gamers liquidity (tokens) to play the new exciting games launched by independent developers.

The casinos, in turn, benefit by getting new games. Developers can therefore focus on what they do best—innovate, unleash creativity and offer new, thrilling games!

The 5 Reasons Why We Believe We Can Capture a Large Share of this $51 Billion Market—and Why You should Consider Buying JOYGamings

1. Working Product

The platform is live and users can play our games. Less than 1 in 10 token sales launch with a working product.

2. Distribution Right from Day

We operate an existing online casino (PlayCosmo) with over 20,000 users and 3 independent game developers. We have therefore solved one of the hardest challenges in building a marketplace—the classic “chicken-egg” problem.

3. Large, Fast-Growing, Recession-Proof Market

There are only 3 recession-proof markets: alcohol, tobacco and gambling. Alcohol and tobacco are in decline while online gambling is growing fast. In this type of market, the rising tide lifts all boats. You can make a lot of mistakes and still do well.

4. Solved the 3 Big Fundamental Problems in Online Gambling:

By solving trust we expect to attract many more casual gamers, especially millennials. And when game developers are freed from the burden of acquiring users, offering liquidity and obtaining gambling licenses, they can innovate.

5. A Team of Gambling Industry Veterans:

Andrew MacDonald (CEO) and the rest of the team collectively have over 50 years of experience in gambling. In finance this is known as “category advantage” and highly correlates with success in new ventures.
