Las Vegas, NV — September 24, 2013
Konami Gaming, Inc., a global leader in casino gaming and systems, today announced that after careful deliberation and a thorough examination of potential business partners, it has selected GameAccount Network (GAN) as a strategic partner in order to bring Konami’s casino games to the market via GAN’s leading iGaming platform.
“GameAccount Network is a world-class provider of iGaming solutions. It was critical for us to find a partner who could help us deliver our game content online in a manner designed to help our casino customers grow revenue and expand their businesses. Additionally, we selected GAN because our views on Internet and mobile gaming strategy align,” explained Steve Sutherland, chief operating officer and executive vice president at Konami.
The initial stage of this partnership will provide Konami content via GAN’s network to a wide range of iGaming service providers that include legal real money online wagering and simulated gaming sites around the world.
“We are excited to have been selected by a world-class gaming company like Konami,” said Julius Patta, president of GameAccount Network USA. “Our mission continues to be to enable land-based casino slot manufacturers to swiftly move online into Europe and North America’s regulated Internet gaming markets. Konami is an ideal partner based on their core values, their track record, and their robust catalog of successful casino slot gaming content which we expect to out-perform online-native equivalents. We are delighted to welcome Konami content within GameAccount Network, and we look forward to bringing their compelling machine-based games online and distributing them into regulated Internet gaming markets such as Italy and the UK and, in due course, markets like Spain and New Jersey. Customers from around the world have been asking to play Konami games like China Shores, African Diamond, and Solstice Celebration online, and, very soon, they will be able to.”
Konami and GAN anticipate having the first online titles appear on the GAN network in early 2014.
