According to Tiku, the company understands what consumers are looking to get a multi-dimensional experience and place their bets. So the company wants its users to get the best betting experience by using immersive technology.
Meanwhile, the company witnessed a 13% decrease in the overall revenue during the first quarter of 2021 in its retail outlet business due to the lockdown. However, the online revenue was significant where it saw a massive jump of 47% in the sports betting division.
