Intema Solutions Inc. is very pleased to announce that the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission has approved the granting of an Online Gambling Regulation Act (OGRA) 2001 license to Livestream Esports Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Intema.

“The grant of the Isle of Man gambling license is major news for Intema and will have a significant positive impact on our future activities,” said Laurent Benezra, Intema’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “In particular, it allows us to comply with one of the TSX Venture Exchange’s main conditions for closing the acquisition of Livestream Gaming Inc. (“Livestream”), with its LOOT.BET online gaming platform. It will also enable us to conduct our iGaming activities through one of the world’s most prestigious gaming jurisdictions and, once we acquire our LOOT.BET platform, to white-label it to regulated gaming markets on a global scale. Finally, it gives LOOT.BET the same level of credibility as other online gambling platforms, throughout the gaming community and among our peers.”

“Once the license is issued, we will proceed with getting final approval from the TSXV and closing the Livestream acquisition, allowing us to start a new chapter of growth for Intema,” concluded Mr. Benezra.

The Isle of Man promotes the highest standards of jurisdictional control in the gaming industry, with extremely high ethical standards for owners and investors, making its license one of the toughest to acquire. The Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission gives out the fewest licenses per year. In addition, the license granted by that regulatory body has many financial and logistical benefits, and will allow Intema to offer continuously fun, safe and responsible gaming experiences for gamers around the world.
