CALGARY, AB and ISLE OF MAN, March 9, 2021 /CNW/ - Real Luck Group Ltd.

The Special Warrants and the Warrants were created and issued pursuant to, and are governed by, the terms of a special warrant indenture and a warrant indenture respectively between the Company and TSX Trust Company, as indenture trustee, in each case.
"Luckbox's strong leadership team paired with the current size and growth potential of esports and sports betting led to the Offering being heavily oversubscribed, as investors begin to recognize this attractive sector and opportunity", Company Chairman Drew Green said.
"We are grateful to our investors for their support and this financing puts Luckbox in a strong position to execute on our goals as we strive to further establish the business as a global leader in the esports betting space."
The Company has agreed to prepare and file a short form prospectus (the "Prospectus") qualifying the distribution of the Shares and the Warrants (including those issued to Gravitas in connection with the Offering) in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario.

Until a receipt is issued for the final Prospectus, securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a 4-month hold period from the date of issue.
The net proceeds of the Offering are expected to be used for working capital and general corporate purposes.
