LeapRate Exclusive... LeapRate has learned that popular online gaming website Winner.com has added Binary Options trading, using the new Keystone binary platform. Keystone is the in-house trading platform of Retail Forex broker Markets.com. It is interesting to note that Markets.com’s own binary brand, TopOption, launched using the SpotOption platform.
The leading binary options platform providers, including SpotOption and Hello Binary, have also been actively marketing to the online (and offline) gaming sectors, looking to expand to new markets. Products developed for the gaming sector include branded websites cohabiting with the gaming company’s main website (like the Winner.com example), to screen-based short-duration options, to actual machines, similar to slot machines, which ‘real’ casino operators can place on premises offering very short (15 through 60 seconds) binary trades on the direction of major market indices, major currency pairs, and popular heavily traded stocks.
Winner’s binary options are actually being offered by a separate company, at website www.winner-option.com, which is regulated by CySEC under the license granted to Safecap Investments Limited. Safecap is also the regulated parent company of Markets.com and the aforementioned binary broker TopOption.
