Swedish casino operator Casino Cosmopol has selected Intelligent Gaming Systems (IGS), a Playtech company, to deliver a complete casino management suite including slots, tables, poker, visitor registration, cash desk and business intelligence capabilities.
IGS was awarded contract following best-in-class approach to Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and data protection regulations.
Casino Cosmopol is a wholly-owned subsidiary of AB Svenska Spel that operates four international casinos in Sweden. As with all Svenska Spel entities, the profits from Casino Cosmopol go directly to the government treasury and are distributed to a range of good causes.
Per Jaldung, CEO of Casino Cosmopol, claims IGS was awarded the contract of System Partner following a competitive tender process. “As a public-sector organisation, Casino Cosmopol applies the Public Procurement Act and our major investments are subject to a competitive procurement process. We specified detailed requirements for a system to connect our gaming, business and compliance operations, with a focus on AML and GDPR.
“Intelligent Gaming Systems was the supplier that met our requirements best and was consequently awarded the contract. Its understanding of the challenges that are presented by AML and GDPR with respect to casino operation has made us feel very confident that they are the right match for Casino Cosmopol,” he added.
The two companies have entered into a framework agreement and the system will be implemented in several phases across 2018 and 2019.
This success underlines our position as the leading systems supplier to the European casino industry
Martin Sykes, Managing Director, IGS, said: “This success underlines our position as the leading systems supplier to the European casino industry. Casino Cosmopol is one of the world’s most responsible gaming operators and is at the leading edge of initiatives such as AML and GDPR. The project includes a number of innovative developments which will underpin our position as the world leaders in AML and responsible gaming.”
