Casino Kings Expands Partnership with NetEnt

Casino Kings, a London-based casino provider, has announced its partnership expansion with Net Entertainment, an award-winning Scandinavian-based gaming developer, which includes increased NetEnt titles across its gaming portfolio.

Becoming the latest succession of catalogue expansion, Casino Kings’s announcement is the third of its kind in 2016. The casino is progressively strengthening its presence in the UK and internationally, and while boosting the site’s games portfolio further, this latest round of games will become available on both web and mobile.

The titles included in the latest catalogue expansion include key online and mobile slots like King Of Slots, Drive: Multiplier Mayhem, Jimi Hendrix Online Slot™ and Guns N’ Roses Video Slot™. Casino Kings has made all of the titles available to gamers both on web and mobile; a strategy that has boosted the company’s success as well as made it a favourite for online gamers

Marketing Manager of Casino Kings, Nathan Howes, says: “Mobile Gaming is not only the future; it is the here and now.”

“Gamers now say that mobile slot and casino game access is as important to them as access through traditional web platforms. Our restyling of the Casino Kings site emphasises our commitment to our web platform, while our mobile offering continues to push the selection choice boundaries for our players.”

Each game is designed in a special way. In the case of the rock bands, for example, the games are styled with particular reference to their respective stars, incorporating the bands’ history and music for effect. The final installment of the NetEntertainment Rocks Tour is due for release on the 22nd September 2016.

Casino Kings encourages gamers to play responsibly, and while offering a committed 24-hour customer support service, it also safeguards its players’ security with the latest 128-bit security technology.

All online casino operators are licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission.

NetEnt is planning to increase the number of its employees in Malta by 20% and move to new offices in the next year.

The plans were presented in the company’s offices in Malta, during an official visit paid by Parliamentary Secretary for Competitiveness and Economic Growth, Dr. José Herrera and the Executive Chairman of the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), Joseph Cuschieri.

During the visit, Enrico Bradamante, Managing Director of NetEnt Malta, said: “Today NetEnt employs 157 employees here in Malta and we are planning for further expansion. We are committed to continue building on the good business relationship established over the years with the Malta Gaming Authority”.

He also underlined that Malta was the first member of the European Union to regulate remote gaming.“It started as an experiment and now ten years later, Malta became an experienced regulator,” Mr. Herrera said.

Mr. Joseph Cuschieri also expressed the perfection which Malta gained over many years of working on remote gaming regulation and outlined MGA’s plans for the future. “The regulatory review currently underway which will lead to new legislation is taking into account new emerging trends in consumer behaviour, technology development, mobility of services and interoperability amongst other factors,” Mr. Cuschieri added.

NetEnt becomes a supplier of GAN

NetEnt, premium supplier of digitally distributed gaming systems, has closed a deal with GameAccount Network, which  has been recently rebranded as GAN.

According to the agreement, NetEnt will deliver its games to GAN via its Simulated Gaming platform on the American market.

The cooperation targets websites of land-based casino operators. The recently signed contract allows NetEnt to supply these operators with different online casino games through a phased rollout.

Björn Krantz, NetEnt Americas managing director , said “We are very excited to be entering the simulated gaming market. The agreement with GAN will allow land-based casinos in the US to introduce NetEnt’s online casino games to their player community ahead of possible state regulations.

“The opportunity to build early recognition and loyalty regarding our best-in-breed gaming titles fits perfectly into our long term growth strategy in the US”, he further comments.

Dermot Smurfit, GAN chief executive officer, added: “We are delighted to support NetEnt’s entry into the US market and on behalf of our land-based casino operator clients we welcome their compelling gaming experience on board our Simulated Gaming platform.”

NetEnt services approved by New Jersey DGE

NetEnt, provider of digital gaming solutions, has been granted a transactional waiver by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement. It allows the company to release its digital gaming products through Borgata and bwin.party brands. NetEnt can now go live with its game content. The licence which the company applied for is however still being reviewed. Official release date is not known yet and it will be announced later on.

NetEnt is still awaiting the process of transactional waivers concerning already signed partnerships with Golden Nugget and Caesars Interactive Entertainment.  This is because the transactional waiver is granted for each signed agreement separately and not for all of the closed deals in the state.

Managing Director of NetEnt Americas LLC, Björn Krantz, said: “The approval of the transactional waiver for Borgata and bwin.party in New Jersey marks yet another milestone in our efforts to successfully go to market and build a long-term presence in North America. We are working in close collaboration with our partners and the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement to secure that necessary administration is taken to successfully go live as soon as possible.”
