GameAccount Network plc (“GameAccount Network” or the “Company”), a leading developer and supplier of enterprise-level B2B internet gaming software and online gaming content, announces the win of a prestigious Internet gaming Industry award in the United States.
Casino Platform Supplier of the Year Award for 2014 recognizes the skills, expertise and commitment to developing the leading Internet casino gaming platform for both regulated real money Internet gaming and Simulated Gaming in the United States. Defeating a wide range of also-nominated casino platform suppliers, GameAccount Network won the Casino Platform Supplier of the Year Award in recognition of its market-leading GameSTACK™ Internet gaming system successfully deployed for Betfair Plc in New Jersey’s regulated real money Internet gaming market and powering diverse Simulated Gaming™ websites for US land-based casino operators in Connecticut, New York and Pennsylvania.
GameAccount Network supplies its Internet Gaming System to Betfair Plc in New Jersey’s regulated real money Internet gaming market powering www.betfaircasino.com offering over 120 real money casino slots and casino table games from major recognizable US casino equipment manufacturers.
Simulated Gaming™ is the innovative Internet gaming service designed by GameAccount Network specifically for land-based casinos in advance of prospective regulation. Simulated Gaming offers a gaming-as-entertainment website enabled with unique and patented monetization features
Simulated Gaming™ is packed with a compelling content portfolio of over 100 casino slot, table and skill-based games including poker, backgammon, gin rummy, poker dice and blackjack tournaments
Launched in the US by GameAccount Network in January 2014, Simulated Gaming™ has been proven to monetize Internet traffic to existing websites operated by land-based US casinos with average revenue per daily active user (ARPDAU) of $2.75, as against an original estimate of $0.60, greatly exceeding equivalent numbers reported by Social Casino operators on Facebook
Simulated Gaming™ enables land-based US casinos access to the Social Casino market worth an estimated $1bn per annum in the United States in 2013. It is proven to increase property visitation among existing patrons, reactivate lapsed patrons bringing them back on-property and drive acquisition of new patrons from outside the typical drive distance to the property
Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GameAccount Network commented:
“Winning this major award is a superb recognition of the blood, sweat and tears put into building a Casino Platform business in the United States, starting in New Jersey with BetfairCasino.com in 2013, Simulated Gaming for three major US casino operators launched since early 2014 and now positioned to expand into other US-regulated real money Internet gaming markets such as Pennsylvania, as they emerge over time. The Company has made extraordinary progress in the United States and I would like to thank all our people in London and Las Vegas for their efforts in securing this well-deserved award granted on merit by an independent panel of objective Industry experts.”
