GameAccount Network partners with Konami
GameAccount Network and US slot machine manufacturer and gaming enterprise management specialist Konami Gaming Inc have announced a strategic partnership that will see GameAccount produce and manage Konami’s online gaming products and solutions via its GAN iGaming platform.
As part of the agreement Konami will supply its real money and free-play gaming content to GameAccount, who will then distribute it through its network of igaming operators and its own sites. Both companies expect the first Konami gaming titles to appear on GAN in early 2014.
Steve Sutherland, chief operating officer and executive vice president at Konami, commented: "GameAccount Network is a world-class provider of iGaming solutions. It was critical for us to find a partner who could help us deliver our game content online in a manner designed to help our casino customers grow revenue and expand their businesses. Additionally, we selected GAN because our views on Internet and mobile gaming strategy align.”
For Julius Patta, president of GameAccount Network USA, the deal means the company can continue its “mission to enable land-based casino slot manufacturers to swiftly move online into Europe and North America's regulated Internet gaming markets. Konami is an ideal partner based on their core values, their track record, and their robust catalog of successful casino slot gaming content which we expect to out-perform online-native equivalents. We are delighted to welcome Konami content within GameAccount Network, and we look forward to bringing their compelling machine-based games online and distributing them into regulated Internet gaming markets such as Italy and the UK and, in due course, markets like Spain and New Jersey."
