The eSports betting company is looking to expand its services into the Macau market after local gaming operators have expressed interest in a possible collaboration.

U

nikrn, which is currently holding an initial coin offering (ICO), told Business Daily it has been approached by Macau operators for a possible partnership.

“Unikrn is very interested in Macau and would be open to partnering with good operators if they want to set up eSports experiences inside their venues,” Unikrn CEO Rahul Sood said.

The company, which was founded in Seattle in 2014, provides bookmaking for eSports and video games

“There is a significant market opportunity in Asia for Unikrn to expand our footprint. We are one of the strongest eSports brands in the world, and we have a pretty strong and growing community in South Korea,” a spokesperson said.

Current legislation does not allow online gaming in Macau. The government has only granted gaming concessions for online gambling on horse racing to Macau Horse Racing Co. Ltd. and sports betting on football and basketball via Macao SLOT Co. Ltd.
