May 23, 2018- Las Vegas, NV – Metric Gaming and Nektan PLC (AIM: NKTN) have announced they are joining forces to provide a fully integrated complete Race and Sports book offering to the US market.
Metric Gaming, founded in Las Vegas and run by industry veterans, offers a complete portfolio of horse racing and sports through its leading edge trading platform for mobile and desktop. Integrating to Rapid brings this second screen experience to any device on the casino floor including Self Service Terminals, Interactive Tables and Video Screens.
Nektan’s Rapid Games platform, the US casino gaming industry’s only independently certified Class II and Class III On-Premises mobile platform is a server based gaming solution offering Casino Content, Instant Win and Virtual Sports games on any device.
Last year, Rapid Games announced its first major contract with a Tier-1 US casino operator to launch its Rapid Games™ platform and has subsequently secured a number of additional contracts as well as moving to an operational phase with a casino in North California.
Rapid CEO, Daniel de Waal commented: “We are delighted to be offering Metric Gaming’s dynamic turnkey horse racing and sports betting solutions which when integrated into the Rapid Game platform, is a perfect fit for the US market, elegantly accommodating on-premise gaming for customers who inevitably demand the ease and enhanced functionality on any device of their choosing while offering them unrivalled betting options. With Metric’s solution integrated directly, Rapid Games™ has become a true one-stop shop for all gaming content on the Casino property.”

Metric has been preparing for this massive opportunity since its inception and has been wholly focused on providing players with the largest set of betting options on the widest range of devices. Rapid’s fully approved, server based, ‘any device’ content platform represents exactly what casinos are looking for to manage content on their floor and in particular, to give their patrons maximum optionality and convenience when it comes to a Metric powered sports book.”
