Published Friday, June 10, 2011 - Online-Casinos.com

Typhoon Gaming Pty Ltd and Tote Tasmania Ltd recently announced that they have signed an agreement which is subject to the approval of the Tasmanian Government for the licensing and installation of the Typhoon software platform. The move, if approved, will replace the TOTE’s legacy Alfa system.

Typhoon Gaming is an advanced wagering platform technology company based in Australia. The Typhoon platform was designed to provide punters with a dynamic and exciting betting experience and wagering operators with a fast and efficient channel to market. The firm employs over 25 people and  the company employs a special, Java engineering team that now has a combined 100 years experience in gambling specific software development. It provides instant access for punters to betting facilities, and its rapid-response times and reliability ensure punters maximize their betting opportunities. Typhoon is currently being implemented by the New Zealand Racing Board as part of their betting program upgrades.

The Tote Tasmania is the government owned firm licensed by the Gaming Control Act of 1993 and has an exclusive right to conduct pari-mutuel wagering within the State of Tasmania. The TOTE markets pari-mutuel or pool based products on thoroughbred, harness and greyhound racing, as well as sport and fixed odds products including “Triwin” and sports betting to its customers through the “Betasports” brand.

Tote Tasmania’s Chief Executive Officer Craig Coleman, commented on the arrangement, “We will replace our wagering back-end with Typhoon and change the business processes in the operations and front-end sales channels as well. Typhoon is a new, agile technology platform that will change the way we serve our customers globally. We will be a genuine 21st century customer service business. This means more products to customers sooner, and delivery at the right cost.”
Nicholas Plowman, Typhoon’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We will deliver the software in the wagering back-end and across all the sales channels, including web, mobile, self-service / operator terminals and call centre. We will also provide Typhoon and Java training for TOTE’s software engineering team so that TOTE can support and enhance its own sales channels going forward without incurring hefty fees.”
