Vici iGAMING is a Swedish holding company with full ownership of Vici iGAMING Operations Ltd based in Malta. The Company was founded by people with extensive experience and past successes in digital entrepreneurship, the iGaming industry, and the financial industry. The company is at the forefront of the modern affiliate industry and optimizes lead generation for iGaming operators. The business consists of generating organic traffic of potential online players on affiliate websites, where visitors take part of marketing material from iGaming operators who are customers of the Company. These corporate customers, in turn, pay the Company for this exposure. The traffic on the Company’s affiliate websites is generated by offering visitors unique game-related content in the form of top lists, bonus lists, news, reviews and a separate live streaming channel with game-related broadcasting several times a week.
In June 2018, the company initiated a comprehensive analysis of the affiliate market, began to build its first affiliate website during the fourth quarter of 2018 and launched it shortly thereafter in early 2019. To this website (www. toppcasinobonus.com), the Company has signed an affiliate agreement with iGaming operators Betsson, Kindred Group, LeoVegas as well as ComeOn and its brands Cherrycasino, Folkeautomaten, Mobilebet, Folkeautomaten, Norgespill.com and GetLucky. Vici iGAMING is currently in an expansive phase where they work intensively to enter new markets in Europe and build a high-performing network of affiliate websites.
We intend to list the Company’s share at Spotlight Stock Market within 8-12 months.As a result of this, we have engaged Spotlight Go public in order to make the Company more visible before a future listing and at the same time prepare Vici iGAMING for the regulations that apply to listed companies.

Our business & market situation
Five reasons to invest in Vici iGAMING:
1. Attractive marketing channel
Marketing through affiliates is easy for iGaming operators to measure, track and evaluate compared to traditional media whose conversion rates are often at best estimated. By primarily getting payed for this service in the form of shares of corporate customers’ future revenues, Vici iGAMING can offer iGaming operators an attractive marketing alternative with low risk compared to traditional marketing channels.
2. Growing and attractive market
Both the underlying iGaming market and the affiliate market itself are experiencing substantial growth, exceeding 7% annually. This is primarily driven by digitalization but also by deregulations of iGaming, such as in several North American states. The global iGaming market size in 2018 was estimated to 49 billion euro, and the global affiliate market to 5.3 billion euro.
3. Industry-leading competence
Among the founders, Nick Mounteer, Trond Nyland and Rune Solstad,
have together previously have run successful projects in industries related to iGaming. In 2011, they founded Mobile Casino Ltd Malta and launched a freemium social gambling app that became one of the world’s most popular on the Google App Store with 10 million downloads. The founders of Vici iGAMING have together invested approximately SEK 1 million and 1,000 hours of work prior to the Offering.
The company’s key personnel are expanding the company’s competencies by recruiting content writers and digital marketers from over 20 countries with priority on industry- specific experiences.
4. An opportunity to invest before Vici iGAMING becomes cash flow-positive
With basis in the Company’s competitive competences and the profitable business model, the founders of Vici iGAMING estimate that the business will be cash-flow- positive by 2020 and that the Offering is the only necessary round of bringing in external capital.
The capital which is raised by this offering, is intended to be used primarily for marketing purposes in order to achieve increased traffic on affiliate websites, analysis of traffic on affiliate websites, development of additional affiliate websites and working capital to accelerate the Company’s market expansion.
Within a three-year period, the Company aims to generate sales of more than SEK 50 million, with an operating margin before depreciation exceeding 85%.
5. A scalable business model and intensive expansion
Vici iGAMING scales its business by building a network of affiliate websites and signing collaboration agreements with more iGaming operators. The upscaling can be done at a rapid pace with the help of acquired knowledge and established systems. During the second quarter of 2019, Vici iGAMING will enter the markets in Finland, Sweden, Denmark, the UK, and the Netherlands. The company will also launch brands in France, Spain, and Italy during the second half of the year.
Vici iGAMING estimates that the Company’s future operations will benefit greatly from established systems and acquired knowledge, which means that the costs increase at a significantly lower rate than the revenues. Vici iGAMING’s vision is to be a leading player in the European affiliate market to the iGaming industry.
