Nektan plc (AIM: NKTN), an international B2B and white label gaming software and services provider, announces that it has signed a partnership deal with Metric Gaming ("Metric"), one of the most compelling and dynamic independent sports betting suppliers in the world, to provide Metric's betting content to the US market.
Through their respective U.S. operating subsidiaries, Metric Gaming LLC and Respin LLC ("Respin"), Metric and Nektan will be offering high quality horse racing and sports betting services via Respin's Rapid Games™ platform, the US casino gaming industry's only independently certified Class II (Protected Tribal Gaming Category) and Class III On-Premises Bring Your Own Device ("BYOD") mobile platform.
Last year, Rapid Games announced its first major contract with a Tier-1 US casino operator to launch its Rapid Games™.
Gary Shaw, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Nektan said: "With last week's Supreme Court decision, the combination of Metric's leading sports and race products, and Nektan's Rapid Games Mobile Casino, creates a large opportunity for both companies working in partnership. The sector will look to a combination of sports and casino and having a partner combining both will create additional opportunities for both companies."
Martin de Knijff, Chief Executive Officer of Metric said: "Last week's Supreme Court decision signals a sea change in the U.S. We are impressed by the Rapid Games™ platform, and believe that its multi-device approach gives our state-of-the-art horse racing and sports betting counterparts a price and functionality advantage over legacy based competitors in both the retail and iGaming spaces."
