Genting is wasting no time in burnishing its Alderney-licensed online gambling offering. Fresh off last week’s official launch of its FSB Technology-powered online sportsbook, Genting has added a live dealer casino offering courtesy of Comtrade Gaming’s gCore product. The live dealer product bears the Crockfords brand, trading on the popularity of the London casino that bills itself as the world’s oldest private gaming club. Genting Alderney managing director Peter Nolan said the online site’s players “expect to receive the same exceptional service” they get from Genting’s brick-and-mortar Crockfords and that Comtrade “was able to deliver game software that replicates the high standards.”
Earlier this month, Curacao-licensed live dealer provider Ezugi added its games to the CasinoEngine solution of gaming platform provider EveryMatrix. The deal marks the sixth live dealer content provider to be integrated into the EveryMatrix system, joining Betgames, Evolution, Microgaming, Net Entertainment and XPRO Gaming. EveryMatrix claims the Ezugi addition makes the CasinoEngine the largest live dealer content aggregator doing business today. Ezugi will provide EveryMatrix with its traditional casino games as well as its live lottery product. EveryMatrix CEO Ebbe Groes said he loves working with “a partner who was so responsive in terms of meeting our need” for new content.
Speaking of new content, Ezugi has just announced a deal with gaming intellectual property firm Uplay1 to expand its own live blackjack offering. The deal allows Ezugi to incorporate Uplay1’s Hybrid Blackjack, raising the maximum numbers of players at any one gaming table from its current maximum of seven to, well, infinity, while simultaneously allowing a mix of high and low bet minimums. Uplay1 CEO Bruce Merati called the system “ideal for low stake wagers and development of new blackjack players.”
A different type of live gaming content is the subject of a deal between Gibraltar-licensed Bwin.party digital entertainment and Czech betting operator Fortuna Entertainment Group. Bwin.party has been selected to integrate its Bwin Feed live sports betting content – including odds, fixtures, results, scoreboards and events calendars – into Fortuna’s sports betting client. Fortuna said it picked Bwin.party for its experience and its “reputation as pioneers in the live-betting industry.”
