Danske SpilDanske Licens Spil today launched an online games offering in association with bwin.party in the newly regulated Danish gaming industry market. The former Danish monopoly provider will hope the deal will add to the 600,000 that are registered customers of parent company Danske Spil. Commenting on the announcement, bwin.party co-CEOs Jim Ryan and Norbert Teufelberger said: “Building on our recent announcement regarding deals with both MGM and Boyd in the US market, this is another important milestone in the execution of our stated strategy that is focused on securing leadership positions in regulated and to-be-regulated markets.  We are delighted that DLS has recognised our expertise and high standards of business practice and we look forward to building a market-leading customer offer for the Danish consumer.”

Bodog88 has introduced Super Six Baccarat to its Grand Bodog Live Dealer Casino. Popular in Asian land-based venues, it marks the first time the product’s been offered on live dealer sites. Super Six works by giving odds of EVENS (1/1) if the banker wins with a point total other than six. If the banker does win with six the bets are paid at 0.5/1. Players can also take an additional wager on the results as an insurance bet at 12/1. Robert Gustafsson, Managing Director of Bodog88, said: “Carving out something unique in the cluttered world of online casino is very difficult but with our new live dealer studio we can quickly react to the needs and wants of casino players. Any new trend can be immediately introduced which we hope will make Bodog88 the most dynamic online casino out there.”

888 have announced that Michael Constantine stepped down from the firm’s board of directors as of December 31 2011. Constantine served as an independent non-executive director and upon his retirement Richard Kilsby, chairman of 888, commented: “I would like to express on behalf of the Board and all at the Company our appreciation of Michael’s contribution to 888. We wish him all the best for the future.”
