Mr. Wänghammar has held leadership roles with established global igaming operators, having been Director of International Projects and Managing Director of Casino at PokerStars (acquired by Flutter Entertainment for US$6 billion in October 2019), and the CEO and Business Development Director at Mr Green & Co online casino (acquired by William Hill for £242 million In October 2018).

This is an exciting stage for the company as we look to scale our user acquisition efforts and revenues and I believe his experience and guidance will be invaluable to Real Luck’s growth strategy.
“His track record speaks for itself, as during his time as Director of Casino at PokerStars, he oversaw the doubling of revenues to more than US$500 million, growing the casino vertical to outperform the core poker offering. During Mr. Wänghammar’s time at Mr Green the business grew quickly and achieved strong profitability and we believe he was instrumental in refactoring the technical infrastructure to launch a portfolio of award-winning products.”
