A group of gaming enthusiasts with over 40 years combined experience at some of the most reputable online casinos decided on a sunny day in 2018 to set out on a journey that would lead to their own gaming hangout. The entire team has worked in executive and managerial positions within the iGaming industry, providing the necessary know-how of what players expect of a modern online casino – great games, generous promotions, high grade of gamification, fast payments and professional support.
Being the enthusiasts that they are, they named their operating company after one of the most iconic online slots – Raging Rhino from WMS. Months filled with long nights, hectolitres of coffee, lines and lines of code, countless supplier meetings and all the other preparatory work needed nowadays followed.
All came together in the early days of April 2019 when they opened the doors of their first brand under the name of Lucky Days Casino. Operated on the award-winning iGamingCloud platform, it comes with a high pedigree for delivering a first class gaming experience. Drawing from 3,000+ games catalogue on offer at iGC, Raging Rhino N.V. went for a portfolio of 1,000+ games from some of the best providers such as Microgaming, Netent, Play’n GO, Big Time Gaming, Quickspin, Push Gaming, Pragmatic Play, Thunderkick, Red Tiger Gaming and Yggdrasil. They have also opted for some of the smaller or newer studios such as 2BY2 Gaming, Kalamba Games, NoLimit City and Relax Gaming. A limited but sufficient choice of Live Casino tables are powered by Evolution Gaming.
For an easier start, the team at Raging Rhino N.V. opted to acquire only a Curacao licence and thus focusing mostly on countries outside of the major jurisdictions such as the MGA Malta, UK Gambling Commision, the Swedish Spelinspektionen and others.
As of May 2019, they are active in 55 countries including Finland, Austria, Canada, Germany as well as in so called grey markets. These are countries where none of the major licenses are required to offer online casino games, nor do they have their own regulatory body that would issue country-specific licenses. This might change in the coming years as increasingly more governments start proceeding to regulate gaming, but for now casino operators are free to offer their services in these countries with any gaming licence, be it from the MGA, the UKGC, Curacao or any other legal jurisdiction.
However, the team is planning to enter the regulated markets within the first two years of the opening of Lucky Days Casino. Therefor, the process to acquire an MGA license is well on its way and we expect to see it happening in the not to distant future. Once that has done, we foresee them applying for UK and Swedish licenses as well.
