London-listed gaming technology supplier GameAccount Network has signed an agreement with Spin Games to distribute the Nevada-based developer’s casino content as free-to-play games across the US, and for real-money gameplay in selected markets.

The Spin Games remote gaming server (RGS) will be integrated into GameAccount’s GameSTACK Internet Gaming System, which is used for Simulated Gaming by casinos in the US including Foxwoods Resort Casino in Conecticut, Empire City Casino in New York and Parx Casino in Pennsylvania.

The agreement marks the first time that another company’s server has been integrated into GameSTACK, and will see GameAccount launch Spin’s portfolio of HTML5 games including video slots, video poker and keno games.

GameAccount's Simulated Gaming solution already features a portfolio of more than 100 slot, table and skill-based games including poker, backgammon, gin rummy and blackjack tournaments.

Launched in January this year, Simulated Gaming has proved successful in monetising traffic to casino websites, with an average daily revenue per daily active user of $2.75, above the social casino market average.

Spin Games content will also be made available for real-money play in select regulated US markets. Both companies are active in New Jersey, where GameAccount has partnered Betfair, with the pair operating under Golden Nugget Atlantic City's licence.

Spin Games has already agreed a supplier deal with Golden Nugget, as well as providing its games to Caesars Entertainment in New Jersey. It has also signed a joint venture agreement with London-listed supplier Nektan targeting the US market.

“As our first RGS integration for Simulated Gaming in the United States, we’re delighted to distribute Spin Games’ gaming content across our growing network of major US casino operators engaged in offering Simulated Gaming to their casino patrons,” GameAccount chief executive Dermot Smurfit said.

“Spin Games has developed a strong mobile-first portfolio of HTML5 games content including a wide range of video poker, slots and keno likely to appeal to casino patrons online,” he added.

Spin Games CEO Kent Young said that with GameAccount having launched its Simulated Gaming solution for various major casinos in the US, the partnership represented “a compelling distribution opportunity” for his company’s content.

Shares in GameAccount Network plc (Co.Data) (AIM:GAME) were trading down 2.65 per cent at 54.03 pence per share in London Thursday morning, a new 52-week low.
