London-listed gaming technology provider GameAccount Network has entered into an agreement with Canada’s DEQ Systems to take the land-based content developer’s table games online.
The deal will see GameAccount redevelop DEQ’s table games for the regulated real-money iGaming sector, GameAccount's virtual currency Simulated Gaming solution focused on the Italian and New Jersey online gaming markets, and as free-to-play products for the wider US and Asian casino industries.
GameAccount chief executive Dermot Smurfit commented that DEQ’s games are “recognized, authentic table games,” with a particular relevance for key Asian markets.
“We're delighted to work with DEQ to bring their selected table game titles online in the United States for both real money and Simulated Gaming, for Simulated Gaming in Asian markets and in Europe's major regulated real money Internet gaming markets,” Smurfit said.
DEQ president and chief executive Joseph E. Bertolone added that he was very pleased to have sealed the agreement with GameAccount.
“This is a strategic part of our table game content product roadmap,” he said. “Partnering with an established, respected and expert partner who will deliver our game content online into both real money and brick and mortar Simulated Gaming customers is essential to drive revenues.”
The deal is the second to be announced by GameAccount this week, after it finalised a partnership with an as yet undisclosed multi-state US casino operator to launch a free-to-play offering powered by its Simulated Gaming product.
The product is already in use with the likes of Pennsylvania’s Parx Casino, Connecticut’s Foxwoods Resort Casino and the Empire City Casino in New York.
Shares in GameAccount Network plc (Co.Data) (AIM:GAME) were unchanged in London early Wednesday morning at 83.50 pence per share, having fallen to a low of 82.00 pence per share during trading Tuesday. The drop coincided with the news that the company's New Jersey iGaming partner, Trump Entertainment Resorts, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in a Delaware court.
