After signing a partnership deal in May of 2019, Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has launched a brand-new online casino in conjunction with SkyCity Entertainment Limited.
The New Zealand gambling market is growing from strength to strength as players search for new and exciting ways to experience casino games. In fact, the total gambling market is estimated to be worth €1.6 billion as of 2019.
That market is set to continue to grow, especially with the new addition of the GiG online casino up and running.
GiG and SkyCity Agreement
In the agreement signed by both companies, it was decided that a fully-managed online casino solution (including the gambling license) would be provided by GiG.
Commenting on behalf of SkyCity regarding the new casino in the works is CEO, Graeme Stephens. “This is an exciting day for SkyCity and one we have been working towards for some time alongside SkyCity Malta and our partner GiG.”
“While ultimately a regulated online gaming market remains the preferred solution, the site launch is another step on our journey of pursuing opportunities to grow and diversify our earnings, addressing a new, fast growing industry which is highly complementary to our land-based activities and offering customers a multi-channel gaming experience,” continued Stephens.
GiG will provide a full turnkey solution including top-tier technology, flexible architecure, a full technical platform, fully-managed services, a full array of gaming content, front-end dev, CRM, compliance, marketing, and much more.
A great opportunity for players to experience the many years of work done by GiG, this new casino is also expected to boost GiG’s revenues for 2020 and beyond.
“GiG is pursuing a strategy of becoming the global partner for strong brands in iGaming. SkyCity Entertainment Group is the largest and most reputable gambling and leisure firm in New Zealand. We are very proud to have been entrusted to provide our full suite of gaming services to them,” said Robin Reed, Chief Executive Officer at GiG.
“It has been great to work with Graeme and his accomplished team and due to a great collaboration we have managed to launch a state-of-the art digital casino experience only two months after signing the agreement. We are looking forward to supporting SkyCity in its aspirations to provide the leading online gambling venue in New Zealand.”
