Nektan plc (AIM: NKTN), the fast-growing international gaming technology platform and services provider, is pleased to announce that it has signed a contract and is now live with BetVictor, one of Europe’s leading gaming companies. Nektan has integrated its B2B E-Lite casino platform into the BetVictor’s casino offering. This is the first deal of its kind for Nektan. Signing a partnership with a globally established gaming business is a landmark win for Nektan’s higher margin B2B business and provides further momentum to the Company’s growth.
Through Nektan’s partnership with Malta-based gaming company, Tyche Digital Malta Limited (“Tyche”), the deal will see BetVictor take the E-Lite platform’s casino content and distribute it across three of its key casino brands giving Nektan access to BetVictor’s flourishing customer base.
The integration significantly expands BetVictor’s casino offering, with the E-Lite platform giving it direct access to HTML5-developed slots and table games from more than 24 of the industry’s leading games and content developers.
Gary Shaw, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Nektan, said:
“This exciting partnership with BetVictor demonstrates how Nektan is attracting large and established businesses to use our technology to enhance their product offering. It serves as another example of our business model delivering growth throughout each market that we operate in and will help us to build on the progress announced recently in our Q1 trading update.”

“We’re thrilled to have partnered with BetVictor, a leading operator with a thriving global customer base. This landmark partnership is set to deliver commercial opportunities to develop and drive significant revenue generation for Nektan throughout the coming months and beyond. It is also a demonstration of how we are fast becoming the go-to provider of premium and compliant entertainment content throughout our industry. The speed with which we can deliver our content to live environments for partners is what differentiates our technology.
“We have worked hard to become the provider of the best gaming content by continually increasing the amount available, as well as improving and enhancing it. We’re sure BetVictor’s players will enjoy the feature-rich, cutting-edge games available to them via our E-Lite platform and look forward to adding more state-of-the-art content across all our platforms.”
Turlough Lally, Director of Casino at BetVictor, said:
“With the constant technology advancements and new games available at the tap of a button, customer demands are becoming increasingly high. To cut through the noise, operators need to keep re-assessing and innovating their games portfolio to provide players with improved gaming options, that can easily be accessed via mobile devices, which are dominating the iGaming industry.”
