TAGO is covering a new area of demand for a fresh types of online card games. But we are also competing with traditional type of games like for example, Poker, Black Jack and other new designed card games providers. In general, we try to open totally new area of online card games.
What differentiates you from your competitors? Specifically, what do you provide that is currently not available in the market or how do you differ from your competitors?
There are three different types of competitors, and all of them have at least one barrier to be an online TAGO card game features:
– Fresh design and innovative game play, new type of cards
– Mass market game, a new contender to the popularity of Poker
– Women likes the game as well — even more comparing to Poker — based on testing experience worldwide
– IPR Protected game
– No collusion issues comparing to Poker as players need to pay to much to stay in the game and see their third card
What milestones or tangible traction have you achieved to date?
TAGO is a new developed game and we recently started to pitch investors and companies. TAGO was tested as a live game in several clubs and presented to various Poker players in private demo. We have a plan to introduce the game to biggest players on the market with Pilots in Q1 2018, but by that time we expect to raise the capital.
Please explain your objectives for participating in SIGMA Pitch Event.
TAGO needs a proper visibility and funding to disrupt pretty much too conservative business of Casino games and we are looking to find a proper partner that will recognise the real potential of the TAGO card game. We strongly believe that once all is set for TAGO’s global launch, the game will grow very fast, so we will need a sufficient financial support to grow the project with a team as well as the infrastructure without any problems — and SiGMA 2017 may be the right place to get support we need for TAGO to success.
