Luminosity Gaming, one of the largest and most successful esports organizations in North America, has partnered with experiential technology company BIG Digital to develop an innovative first-of-its-kind interactive gaming activation and experience, with the first event taking place recently at Bud Light Dreams Festival on June 29 and 30, 2019.

Dreams is a two-day, three-stage outdoor sensorial celebration of Toronto’s music and arts community. Luminosity, well known for its overwhelming success in engaging with esports and gaming fans, landed at Dreams with its mobile tour that included interactive touchscreen gameplay, on-site gaming stations and merchandise sales.

“We believe there is a massive intersection of fans between the worlds of gaming and music. Our launch and presence at Dreams validated that belief. We received an overwhelmingly positive response throughout the weekend and can’t wait to replicate this success at other events in the future,” said Steve Maida, founder and president of Luminosity Gaming.

The esports category is exploding and becoming one of the most requested categories that brands want to activate against. BIG and Luminosity are building programs and products that educate brand partners and provide an easy entry point to connect with Luminosity audiences.

“The intent is to provide the esports experience to a wider range of audience groups. A key aspect was designing mobile and flexible structures for customizing the experience. The combination of gaming containers and digital technology, including a giant LED billboard and pop-up digital screens, featured Luminosity content that showcased team and player segments as well as a curated social conversation to festival attendees. A Wi-Fi network enabled mobile contesting and further interactions and engagement by the attendees,” said Michael Girgis, co-founder of BIG Digital.

Luminosity‘s success in connecting with a music-focused audience is not new. In April 2019, Grammy-nominated artist Tory Lanez joined Luminosity’s ownership group. As an ambassador for the franchise, Lanez continues to engage with fans, grow the brand, create content, and help the franchise continue its track record of success through creative ideas and by leveraging Tory’s wealth of experience in the music industry.

In addition to the launch at Dreams, Luminosity has recently made multiple game-changing moves:

The Official LG Fortnite House, a content hub and house in Florida featuring four of the most popular and innovative creators in gaming, launched on June 16, 2019. Formula, Kiwiz, Nicks, and Randumb joined an already stacked roster of Luminosity creators, bringing with them over 900,000 Twitter followers, 7 million YouTube followers, and close to 1 billion total video views. With their addition, the Luminosity online fanbase increased from approximately 50 million to approximately 58 million followers in total.

On May 31, 2019, Luminosity Gaming and Enthusiast Gaming announced a proposed merger. The merger and partnership includes eight esports teams (including Luminosity’s management of the Vancouver Titans Overwatch League franchise), 40 esports and gaming influencers, 80+ gaming media websites, and 900+ YouTube and Twitch channels, and will create a globally leading organization that will produce the best and most engaging experiences for a massive audience of approximately 200 million.
As the franchise continues its growth mission by investing in new teams, players, streamers, and influencers, stay connected with Luminosity for updates:

First Quarter of 2019 - 2020 - Loto-Québec's results are in line with budget forecasts

At the end of the first quarter of the 2019–2020 fiscal year, Loto-Québec is reporting total revenues of $656.1M and a consolidated net income of $337.4M.

QUOTE

“Since 2015–2016, our total first-quarter revenues (for the same number of days) have increased by $70.0M (+11.9%), while total expenses over the same period have risen by just 1.9%. As for our consolidated net income, it saw a $63.9M (+23.4%) increase, to which all sectors contributed,” says President and CEO Lynne Roiter.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Lotteries
    The lottery sector saw a decrease in revenues (-11.6%) due in part to fewer Maxmillions being offered through Lotto Max (32, compared to 199 in the first quarter of 2018–2019), and a sales decline of special-edition tickets, because the 100$ ULTIME ticket was not brought back this year. On the other hand, the Corporation paid out a $65Mjackpot—the biggest in its history.
  • Casinos 
    The casino sector reported stable revenues compared to the same quarter last year. For the same number of days, revenues are up $2.1M (+1.0%).
  • Gaming establishments 
    The bar network saw a decline in revenues (-1.2%), while revenues at gaming halls (+4.1%), bingo halls (+16.5%) and Kinzo halls (+13.4%) rose. Electronic bingo was a contributing factor in higher bingo hall revenues.
  • Online gaming
    Revenues from the online gaming website—lottery and casino games combined—grew by $5.6M (+23.8%).

The quarterly report is available on Loto-Québec’s website.
