The sports, esports and casino gambling operator, which trades under the Luckbox brand, has appointed Wanghammar as the fifth member of its board. He replaces the outgoing Mike Stevens and joins the likes of Thomas Rosander (company CEO), Drew Green (Chairman), Lloyd Melnick and Maruf Raza. 

In his previous roles, Wanghammar was appointed to a number of executive positions at iGaming organisations. At PokerStars, he held two notable positions over his three-year tenure, including Director of International Projects and Managing Director Casino. Under his stewardship, PokerStars was acquired by Flutter Entertainment for $6bn, in 2019. 

Prior to this, he served as CEO and Business Development Director at online operator Mr Green, for a total of three years. 

Thomas Rosander, CEO, Real Luck Group, commented: “I am thrilled a seasoned operator such as Bo will be joining our board. This is an exciting stage for the company as we look to scale our user acquisition efforts and revenues, and I believe his experience and guidance will be invaluable to Real Luck's growth strategy.” 

As part of his remuneration package, Wanghammar has been granted 300,000 stock options, at CA$0.21 (US$0.16) per share, worth approximately CA$63,000. The shares are exercisable over a three-year period. 

On Wanghammar’s appointment, Rosander continued: “His track record speaks for itself, as during his time as Director of Casino at PokerStars, he oversaw the doubling of revenues to more than $500m, growing the casino vertical to outperform the core poker offering.  

“During Wanghammar's time at Mr Green, the business grew quickly and achieved strong profitability and we believe he was instrumental in refactoring the technical infrastructure to launch a portfolio of award-winning products.”
