Lottomatica Signs Online Gambling GameAccount Network

Published Thursday, August 13, 2009 -

GameAccount Network, which is a software developer and supplier to the online gambling industry since it was established in the United Kingdom in 2001. GameAccount Global Limited operates a network of websites dedicated to person-to-person games of skill for real money. Players compete within the GameAccount Network from over 130 countries globally. The company has announced it has signed a multi-year software licensing agreement with Lottomatica, a leading worldwide lottery and numeric games operator.

In 2007 GameAccount was licensed by the UK's Gambling Commission to operate online games of skill and chance for real money prizes and supply managed software services to 3rd party eGaming operators.

Lottomatica is also one of the main gaming and commercial service providers and operates the most extensive online network infrastructure in Italy. The objective is to launch GameAccount Network's suite of skill-based games in the newly-regulated Italian market coming this fall. The new agreement will enable Lottomatica's online customers to engage in playing real money tournaments for GameAccount's portfolio of online skill games.

Manager at Lottomatica, Francesco Mastantuoni, commented, "GameAccount leads the market for skill games in Europe and were natural partners for Lottomatica in the newly regulated Italian market. GameAccount was chosen after an exhaustive process investigating the commercial potential and cultural appetite in Italy for GameAccount's skill games portfolio, the experience of potential suppliers and the technical & regulatory capabilities of their respective platforms."

Dermot Smurfit, GameAccount's chief operating officer, said, "We are delighted to partner with Lottomatica, a leading regulated lottery, sportsbook and gaming operator in one of Europe's fastest-growing regulated online gaming markets," adding, "Later this summer we will launch real money tournaments heralding a new suite of skill games for the fast-growing Italian market. Passing the technical tests of AAMS, the Italian regulator, was one of the proudest milestones in our company's history and the result of many months painstaking development effort. With our established market lead in Italy, we're on course to become a major software supplier to the new regulated online gaming markets in Europe."
