London-listed real-money and social gaming supplier GAN has rolled out its free-to-play gaming solution for the Oklahoma-based Chickasaw Nation.

The supplier has launched a Simulated Gaming website and supporting mobile apps for Chickasaw's WinStar World Casino and Resort, based in the city of Thackerville, Oklahoma.

WinStar is a major gaming destination for residents of both Oklahoma and Northern Texas, featuring almost 7,500 electronic gaming machines and 145 table games.

"We are enormously privileged to bring one of America's largest and most vibrant casino properties online with our Simulated Gaming solution," GAN chief executive Dermot Smurfit said. "On behalf of the entire team at GAN, we would like to extend our thanks to the client for offering GAN the opportunity to bring Simulated Gaming to their regional gaming market.

"This contract is expected to deliver material revenue and earnings to GAN throughout the remainder of 2017," Smurfit added.

The offering will be integrated with the casino's on-property loyalty programme and its Scientific Games-supplied casino management system, using GAN's patented iBridge Framework.

Players buying virtual chips online will receive WinStar Online Gaming Reward Points that can be redeemed on-property for show tickets, spa credits, meals and gift cards.

The Chickasaw Nation becomes GAN's fourth Native American casino client to launch Simulated Gaming, and its 12th client to go live in the US since January 2014.

"GAN was selected for their breadth of experience in enabling casino properties to provide a free-to-play online gaming experience and their commitment to integrating our highly-regarded on-property rewards program into this user experience," WinStar general manager Wayne McCormick said.

"Equipped with GAN's Simulated Gaming, WinStar World Casino and Resort will continue to introduce our casino experience - both online and on-property - to a nationwide audience of casino game players."

Shares in GAN plc (Co.Data) (AIM:GAN) were trading at 30.75 pence per share in London earlier Monday.
