Omni-channel provider to launch real money site for leading Dutch land-based casino chain

Omni-channel provider Mediatech Solutions is to supply Dutch land-based chain Fair Play with a new online casino using its market-leading IRIS platform.

The deal with owner Janshen-Hahnraths Group, which runs 42 casinos across the Netherlands under the Fair Play brand, will see the new Malta-licensed Fairplay Online casino launch this summer.

Mediatech facilitated the company’s social gaming site last year using the IRIS platform, which has been developed to cater for the next generation of player-focussed operators.

Under the agreement, Fairplay Online will enjoy access to a comprehensive suite of innovative real-money gaming content, including slots provided by Microgaming.

Mediatech Solutions CEO and founder Jessica Ordovas said: “We’re delighted to have reached an agreement to supply our IRIS gaming platform to Fairplay Online.

“Fair Play has extensive land-based heritage in the Netherlands and can replicate this success online by leveraging our products and services to create a world class offering.

“With new regulation on the horizon, the Netherlands is set to become an important part of Mediatech’s fast-expanding global footprint. We have been investing heavily there and believe in its success once the final legislation is published.”

Fairplay Online’s manager Carel Meijer added: “We’re excited about the next stage in JH Group’s journey, taking our respected retail brand into the growing online gaming space.

“We already knew Mediatech well from working together on our social gaming site, so there was no question as to where we would turn when looking for a RMG platform provider.”

Last month, Spanish land-based casino supplier R. Franco Group took a controlling stake in Mediatech in a deal which created one of Europe’s largest omni-channel suppliers.
