Nektan, an international B2B and white label gaming software and services provider, has announced the signing of a new partnership deal with Metric Gaming (Metric), an independent sports betting supplier, to provide Metric’s betting content to the US market.
Through their respective U.S. operating subsidiaries, Metric Gaming and Respin, Metric and Nektan will be offering horse racing and sports betting services via Respin’s Rapid Games platform, the US casino gaming industry's only independently certified Class II (Protected Tribal Gaming Category) and Class III On-Premises Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) mobile platform.
Last year, Rapid Games announced its first major contract with a Tier-1 US casino operator to launch its Rapid Games.
Commenting on the new partnership deal Gary Shaw, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Nektan said: “With last week’s Supreme Court decision, the combination of Metric’s leading sports and race products, and Nektan's Rapid Games Mobile Casino, creates a large opportunity for both companies working in partnership. The sector will look to a combination of sports and casino and having a partner combining both will create additional opportunities for both companies.”
Martin de Knijff, Chief Executive Officer of Metric added: “Last week’s Supreme Court decision signals a sea change in the U.S. We are impressed by the Rapid Games™ platform, and believe that its multi-device approach gives our state-of-the-art horse racing and sports betting counterparts a price and functionality advantage over legacy based competitors in both the retail and iGaming spaces.”
