First mobile bet taken by Nektan in California

Leading international B2B services and solutions provider, Nektan PLC (AIM: NKTN), has accepted its first real-money wager in the U.S. after having launched its Evolve in-venue mobile games solution.

Through the Gibraltar-based company’s U.S. operating subsidiary, Respin Games LLC (“Respin”), Rapid GamesTM is now live at a tribal casino in California. The proprietary in-resort Bring Your Own Device (“BYOD”) mobile platform is certified Class II (Protected Tribal Gaming Category), according to the company press release.

Through the solution, customers have the opportunity to enjoy casino games on their mobile devices while they are on-site.

Nektan, which operates over 75 online casino brands on a “white-label” basis, expects to launch the platform across an additional three casinos in Northern California prior to the year’s end.

Nektan Interim CEO, Gary Shaw, 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.” Shaw went on to say, “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.”

Nektan Chairman Jim Wilkinson, 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.”

In early July, Nektan acquired its digital marketing arm, Nektan Marketing Services, from Warren Jacobs, and Betfred founder Fred Done for just over $646,000. That deal just three months after agreeing to a deal to supply real-money online casino games from developer High 5 Games to operators across Europe and Canada on an exclusive basis.
