Nektan Launches US Mobile PlatformTia Winter | 16 August 2017
Popular Kiwi mobile casino solutions provider Nektan has officially entered into the US real money mobile gaming industry by launching its in-venue gaming solution, Evolve, with a Californian tribal casino.
The land-based gambling facility in the well-known US state has chosen to remain unnamed for the time being, but has been confirmed to be lined up with Respin Games, Nektan’s American-based subsidiary. The casino and the gaming firm will soon roll out Rapid Games, Nektan’s Class 2, in-resort mobile platform that requires players to bring their own devices in order to play the games on offer.
The tribal casino’s customers will soon be able to use the mobile gaming solution to play real money casino games from their mobile phones and tablets, all while they are on-site at the casino. Nektan has revealed that it is planning to launch the platform with three more casinos in Northern California before the end of Q3 (the current quarter) this year.
CEO Plans To Launch Mobile Solution At Three More US Casinos
CEO of Nektan Gary Shaw has commented on the launch of his company’s mobile solution, noting that the firm is leading the market at an exciting time for the mobile iGaming industry. Nektan, he said, has the opportunity to drive its new technology through any number of North American casinos.
The executive continued, noting that as Nektan is one of the first movers of Class 2 mobile casino products, its team is dedicated to help tribal land-based casino operators transform their operations into successful iGaming businesses as well.
