March has understandably proved a difficult month for many businesses around the globe. Whilst our thoughts are with everyone that is negatively affected by Covid-19, we can not let it go unnoticed that WINk; in terms of business has had a very successful month. We will talk about what we have achieved in March, what the team are working on and what impact the lockdown has had on WINk. Most noticeably the increase in earnings for our token holders and profit for the platform.
Monthly drops February vs March -
As our current users are aware WINk focuses on wealth redistribution with its users. The daily profits generated from wink.org are shared amongst its token holder’s.
Holding $WIN token and freezing it under the WINdrops section of the platform, entitles you to a share of the profits generated from ALL games played on WINK.org. Each subsection of wink pays a certain percentage to the WIN pool, which accumulates throughout a 24 hour period and then distributes the total amount of $TRX $BTT and $USDT once every 24 hours, to its frozen token holders. The amount of $TRX our users received in March has almost doubled compared with the previous month of February, this is a result of the increase in players and volume that we have experienced.
WIN DROPS — $TRX earnings below are based on having 1 million WIN tokens frozen for the month.
February 2020: 124 trx
March 2020: 240 trx
WINk also has sub tokens that you can freeze to earn an extra share of the profits from each different section of wink.org. The only way to earn these tokens currently is through playing the games that fall under their own categories, they cannot be purchased right now, but will be tradeable in the future. Here are the earnings for having 1000 LIVE or DICE tokens frozen during the months of February and March.
LIVE DROPS — $TRX earnings below are based on having 1000 live tokens frozen for the month.
February 2020: 56 trx

Increase of DAU and site traffic for the whole platform -
March really has been a great month for us, with a 20% increase in Daily average users (DAU) and 18% increase in site traffic — March has seen an impressive increase in profit for WINk.org with Gross gaming revenue (GGR) increasing by +111.48% on its previous month’s figures.
Super slots Friday and growth of LIVE platform -
The LIVE platform has been performing exceptionally well throughout March. We have added a total of 45 new slot games during this time from the following gaming providers: PUSH gaming, NetEnt, Microgaming, Fugaso, Reel NRG and Kalamba. We have continued with the ‘Super Slots Friday’ events and offer 2x LIVE mining bonuses every Friday, where players can earn double the amount of LIVE tokens for their wagering. We are pleased this has such a positive effect on the community and players and will continue with this, bringing you more choice and a bigger selection of games throughout April.
Sports betting -
Sportsbook betting — As expected has taken a big hit in turnover during March, however, our sportsbook still shows a healthy profit margin. With the world’s sporting events coming to a halt, we will be focusing on Esport and Virtual betting promotion throughout April as we did during March. We will be working closely with the sports team as always, to ensure this popular part of our platform is utilized to its full potential. This will also enable them the time to concentrate on development and work on adding extra features to make WINk sportsbook the strongest in the market.
