The new project Luckchemy is attracting interest. This platform can solve the main problems of iGaming by eliminating fraud, creating original games, engaging third parties and offering white label solutions.

iGaming has always enjoyed popularity, as millions of people all over the world are attracted by the possibility of hitting the jackpot while sitting at home. The only sufficient drawback of iGaming industry is the high level of fraud which undermines the credibility of iGaming. To revolutionize and improve the industry, Luckchemy has been designed.

Luckchemy is a scalable and provably fair iGaming platform driven by a unique combination of blockchain technology and offchain cryptography. Luckchemy is aimed at solving the main problems of iGaming. The benefits of this platform include a variety of original games, active involvement of third parties and white label solutions. The usage of blockchain ensures the transparency and fairness of all the games, which is a big step for the industry.

Masa Suganuma, well experienced gaming technical expert who has been working in Gaming industry over 18 years, became the advisor of the platform and assisted Luckchemy in developing their project. Suganuma started with the role of engineer at Konami Gaming, Inc. and assigned as Director of Game development in their USA office. Three years’ experience of game development in Las Vegas gave him enough knowledge of “What is the gaming industry”. After coming back to Japan, he became head of R&D in Aristocrat Technologies (Aristocrat Japan), and dedicated himself to Pachinko slot game development. Two years later, he assigned to President of that company.

As for the Luckchemy platform, it has already proved to be trusted: the first few days of private sale brought to the company the biggest part of the planned amount. Before Luckchemy went public, $500,000 have been invested in it.

Currently, the platform is in the process of pre-sale which has started on April 30, 2018 and will last till May 21, 2018. During the pre-sale, early supporters are rewarded with a 40% discount. The main part of the ICO is scheduled for May 22, 2018.

The iGaming industry is expanding, but unfortunately, its reputation has been significantly damaged. And Luckchemy may have a chance to lay the groundwork for fair iGaming.
