Newfoundland Firm Gets Contract for Belize Online Gambling

Published Sunday, December 30, 2012 -

Cape Breton is in Newfoundland and Labrador Canada and jobs are as scarce as hen’s teeth. The only daily newspaper in Cape Breton recently reported that a local company Saratoga Oceanic Development Group New Waterford will be creating jobs. The owner of the firm Neil Rideout said that the firm has been awarded a contract worth almost $1 million to build an online gaming system for Lions Gaming Inc., a Belize based company. The project is expected to generate ten programming jobs immediately even though Rideout says, “We are looking at creating ten programmer jobs in New Waterford to start. We just don’t have any place in the community here to house them right now,” “We might have to relocate those off-island in the beginning, then relocate the jobs back here after we build up enough resources to house these jobs.” Rideout continued to explain, “We would need high-tech facilities to house these programmers.”

The company has a small window to complete the contract, “We feel confident we are going to be able to do this in 90 days because we are architecting it, making sure it is robust, stable, has a nice shell around it and that Lions Gaming will be first and foremost in online gaming in Belize.”

Saratoga Oceanic Development Group Inc. will provide software development, consulting, security and maintenance for the offshore project. This facility has the potential to service 250,000 clients and include poker and sports betting. The development firm was created10 years ago, and has been on the forefront of multicast video conferencing and advanced reliable forms of content delivery, with offices in Germany, Australia and the United States. Rideout gave credit to Revenue Canada’s scientific research and experimental development tax incentive program for its assistance with his firm. “Revenue Canada is an amazing government organization that is there for your development fees. It is unbelievable what they have done for us.”

Lions Gaming Inc. is a corporation in Belize dedicated to providing the casino experience worldwide.
