Nektan and Spin Games partner in U.S.

Mobile gaming platform provider Nektan has signed a joint venture agreement with gaming content supplier Spin Games. Both companies plan to introduce mobile gaming technology to the land-based US casino market.

Nektan and Spin Games have joined together to offer gaming technology to land-based casinos in the U.S.

The partnership will allow casino operators to offer specialized in-venue mobile technology and content on a significant portion of gaming cabinets on casino floors, the companies said in a press release.

Operators will also be able to introduce new gaming content that can be accessed by patrons via machines and mobile devices in the venue.

Nektan and Spin Games have already entered into agreements with both tribal and commercial operators in the states of California and Nevada.

“This joint venture and the announcement of our first contracts with US land-based operators is a significant step in the execution of our US growth strategy,” Gary Shaw, executive chairman of Nektan, said. “With our joint mobile technology solution including the Evolve platform and Spin Games’s gaming machine expertise we are offering a solution to introduce mobile gaming to land based casino operators across up to 32 states.

“The joint venture’s pipeline of contracts continues to develop and we will update the market as appropriate and also provides Nektan an entry into the key US market without reliance on state-by-state interactive gaming regulation, which remains a longer-term opportunity for the group,” he said.
