Online casino product to be offered in the European market

Chartwell Technology, a leading provider of games, gaming systems and platforms for the regulated online casino gaming industry, has signed an exclusive licensing agreement with Ho Gaming to distribute its online Live Dealer casino product in the European market.

This exclusive partnership with Ho Gaming (www.hogaming.com) will deliver the most up-to-date online Live Dealer gaming product to the European market. The offering combines Chartwell’s iGaming b2b expertise and distribution network of clients with the live action experience and heritage of Ho Gaming. The Live Dealer product for Europe is licensed by the regulatory authorities in the Isle of Man, and delivery to market is anticipated as occurring in November 2010.

Chartwell’s Live Dealer product features high-quality streaming video, which offers players a “real” casino experience in a convenient online and interactive format. It also features a mix of professional, highly trained European and Asian staff, providing exciting live dealer action across player favorites such as blackjack, roulette and baccarat, plus other popular game variations. Given Ho Gaming’s expertise with premiere land-based casinos, operators and players can be assured that the same proven and fair gaming standards and processes will be applied to all of Chartwell’s and Ho Gaming’s online Live Dealer casino games.

“Ho Gaming is very excited to enter the Live Dealer arena in Europe with Chartwell,” said Ho Gaming CEO Peter Kjaer. “It was important for us to partner with a knowledgeable and reputable online casino provider. Moreover, the flexibility and reliability of Chartwell’s gaming platform gave us the confidence in launching a world-class Live Dealer product with them.”

Chartwell Games CEO Dan Phillips said Chartwell looks forward to working with the professionals at Ho Gaming to provide a superior player experience with Live Gaming in 2010 and beyond.

The Live Dealer casino product being brought to market by Chartwell will complement its existing instant RNG (random number generator) based casino product.
