Premier Punt Group, the Edinburgh based Business-to-Business social gaming provider, has managed to pull off a real coup in recruiting industry trailblazer Victor Chandler as an investor and advisor.
Mr Chandler is often credited with being the first to take gambling “online” and gambling operations offshore.
He said this of the announcement: “Premier Punt Group is an exciting company with fantastic vision and huge potential. The strategy of obtaining social bettors, at a low customer acquisition cost, then upselling to an integrated sportsbook & casino is an interesting formula to say the least. I am looking forward to working with John Gordon and the team to help them realise that potential.”
CEO of Premier Punt Group, John Gordon, also commented: “Victor is a legend in the industry so obviously we are absolutely delighted to have someone of his stature on board.
Since Victor has come on board the company has gone from strength to strength. Victor has been there and done it. For us to have that vast bank of experience and knowledge to tap into is priceless and indicates some very exciting times ahead for Premier Punt Group.”
Mr Chandler invested in the company’s current investment round which is still open. Their investment campaign recently went live to the public on the crowdfunding platform, Seedrs, which hit its minimum target investment on day 1.
