10th September 2009 11:38 am GMT

In response to increasing demand for themed slot games, Canada's Chartwell Technology has entered into a two-year agreement with Novomatic subsidiary Astra Games for the online deployment of some of the most popular land-based slots.

Under the terms of the agreement, Chartwell will offer online the complete catalogue of Novamatic games, beginning with 19 titles including land-casino favourites Dolphin's Pearl and Book of Ra.

Chartwell said the agreement will significantly strengthen both companies' positions in the marketplace, as well as reaffirming its commitment to providing customers with the widest range of gaming options possible.

"Working with Novomatic provides an exciting opportunity for both companies", said David Acorn, Chief Operating Officer of Chartwell. "Providing our customers with immediate access to a large offering of proven gaming content will provide a real benefit to their players.

"The integration of AGL's 19 slot games with Chartwell's current catalogue of over 75 proprietary table, card and slot games will be done through the Chartwell Games Platform, a major addition to Chartwell's full service offering which allows for the integration of games from third-party manufacturers like AGL in a quick and seamless fashion."

Astra Games Limited Managing Director, Zane Mersich, added: "We are delighted to have concluded this agreement with Chartwell and see the combination of their undoubted experience as an operator of the highest calibre as ideally complementing Novomatic's proven reputation for game excellence and progressive innovation.

"Bringing the game appeal of internationally renowned Novomatic products such as Dolphin's Pearl and Book of Ra to Chartwell's already impressive game portfolio is a recipe for success on which both our companies can and will build on in the coming months."

Shares in Chartwell Technology Inc. (Co. Profile) (TSX:CWH) will commence trading today in Toronto at CAD$1.41 per share.
