Brittiläinen Gaming Bourse on keräämässä rahaa osakeannilla vetopörssin perustamiseksi. Toivottavasti Betfairille saadaan tiukka kilpailija. Ainakin tuo "streaming internet technology" lupaa hyvää. Alla olevan tekstin mukaan perustettava pörssi keskittyy pitkälti finanssivetoihin. En pane vastaan
Bonuksena annissa on, että sijoittaja saa 10% merkintänsä arvosta suoraan omalle pelitililleen.
The Gaming Bourse Plc is a company that has been set up to act as a
global betting exchange and will provide a sports, financials, commodities, media and political person-to-person betting forum. The company will trade as punt2punt.com, as well as offering White Label services.
The founder, Hamish Raw, has nearly 20 years’ experience of trading financial derivatives. Jack Wigglesworth, the Non-Executive Chairman, and Derek Tullett CBE each has 40 years’ experience in financial services. The other Directors provide expertise in finance, marketing, financial and commodities trading, and IT.
The Gaming Bourse Plc combines financial trading functionality with streaming internet technology to create what the Directors believe to be
a highly advanced gaming platform for the betting exchange arena. The Directors believe that The Gaming Bourse Plc has a number of
differentiating factors which are described in the prospectus.
The Directors view is that one of the major attractions of this new betting exchange is the emphasis on the under exploited financial and commodities bets offered. The Directors also believe that many people who have an existing interest in financial trading will be attracted by the ease with which a customer can place a bet and the quality of The Gaming Bourse's platform.

This money must be used to bet on the site and is subject to terms and conditions.
