Nektan plc (AIM: NKTN), the fast-growing international gaming technology platform and services provider, has increased its growing network of commercial partnerships, securing a deal with award-winning sportsbook and omni-channel betting platform FSB to significantly enhance its global games offering. The deal will see Nektan aggregate its premium casino content to FSB’s growing operator network via E-Lite, Nektan’s content distribution platform.
This partnership demonstrates the increasing demand for Nektan’s E-Lite platform and the continuous development of its B2B division, with quarterly revenues increasing 322% YoY, as shown in the recently announced Q3 FY19 trading announcement.
In addition to Europe, the deal will primarily serve FSB’s African operator partners to deliver slots and table games of varying degrees of complexity, throughout the African player base. The integration will support African currencies, along with all mobile operating systems, mobile devices and web browsers used across the continent.
As part of the agreement, FSB’s growing list of global partners, operating across territories including Africa and Europe, will now have direct access to more than 830 HTML5-developed slots and table games from the industry’s leading providers, available across all desktop and mobile devices.
