Nektan PLC has taken its first real-money wager in the United States following the launch of its Evolve in-venue mobile games solution.
Through Nektan’ US operating subsidiary, Respin Games LLC, a tribal casino in California has gone live with Rapid GamesTM, the certified Class II (Protected Tribal Gaming Category) proprietary in-resort Bring Your Own Device mobile platform. The solution gives customers the chance to play casino games on their mobile devices whilst on-premise.
Nektan expects to roll out the platform across a further three casinos in Northern California this calendar year.
Gary Shaw, Interim CEO of Nektan, said: “We are very pleased to have taken our first ever real-money wager in North America with an established land-based casino operator in California.
“As first movers in Class II mobile casino, our team is focused on helping the tribal land-based operators evolve into successful igaming businesses. We are leading the US Class II market at an exciting time for our industry and are well positioned to drive our technology through any number of casinos in North America.”
Jim Wilkinson, Chairman of Nektan, said: “After the strong growth delivered by Nektan during the last year in our Managed Gaming Solutions business in Europe, it is a testament to the expertise and ambition of management that the Company is establishing Respin as a market leader in mobile casino gaming in the North American market.”
