Nektan takes first mobile bet in California
Nektan PLC has taken its first real-money wager in the U.S. following the launch of its Evolve in-venue mobile games solution with a tribal casino in California. Through Nektan’s US subsidiary Respin Games LLC (Respin), the California casino has gone live with Rapid Games, the certified Class II proprietary in-resort bring your own device (BYOD) 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 over the quarter.
“We are very pleased to have taken our first ever real-money wager in North America with an established land-based operator in California," said Gary Shaw, CEO of Nektan.“We are leading the market at an exciting time for our industry and have the opportunity to drive our technology through any number of casinos in North America. As first movers in Class II mobile casino, our team are focused on helping the tribal land-based operators evolve into successful igaming businesses.”
“After the strong growth achieved during the last year in Europe, it is a testament to the management that the company is managing to establish its business as a market leader in mobile casino gaming in the North American market,” said Jim Wilinson, chairman of Nektan.
