Online gambling software supplier, GAN, has announced a partnership with the Chickasaw Nation of Oklahoma in a deal that makes them the largest multi-property US client on their books.
The London-based software supplier GAN (formerly GameAccountNetwork) has revealed the identity of their biggest multi-property US client after they advised us of the forthcoming relation back in April.
The new partnership is with the Chickasaw Nation, a federally recognised tribe based in Oklahoma. A large bulk of the tribe’s revenue comes from their 20 casinos/bingo halls, including the WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville. The tribe owns over 20,000 electronic gaming machines and serves over a million customers per year. They are the 12th largest federally recognised tribe in the U.S., and they employ close to 14,000 people in their gambling enterprises.
The deal will see the Chickasaw Nation launch a new social casino using GAN’s simulated gaming platform. The technology will allow them to offer their customers a variety of online gambling skill-based games such as poker, backgammon, gin rummy, and blackjack.
In addition to the online offering, GAN will install their award winning GameSTACK platform at the WinStar casino in the upcoming weeks. Last year it won the eGaming Review North America Casino Platform (Supplier) of the Year award.
Bill Lance, secretary of commerce for the Chickasaw Nation, told the press that he was particularly excited about the new partnership as GAN did not operate it’s own B2C social casino.
GAN CEO, Dermot Smurfit, told the press that he expects the Chickasaw Nation to quickly secure ‘significant market share online’ once the relationship starts to roll.
GAN’s GameSTACK and Simulated Gaming Model will allow the tribe to fuse both land-based systems with a new online presence, allowing online players to learn more about the land-based casino games, and vice versa.
