|Canadian gambling software developer Chartwell Technology has announced a deal with Spielbanken Niedersachsen GmbH (SNG) to develop Germany’s first legal online casino operation.|
SNG is the Government-licensed and regulated casino operator for the northern German Federal State of Lower Saxony and stated that it is launching the virtual venture to complement its existing land-based operation.
Calgary-based Chartwell said that the five-year agreement calls for the launch of casino and soft games followed by, subject to German law, additional gaming products to SNG affiliate companies. It stated that an online casino utilising Flash technology would be launched early next month with a preview currently available at CasinoLand.de.
'We are delighted to provide our gaming system for SNG's launch into online gaming,' said Darold Parken, President and Chief Executive Officer for Chartwell.
“We have gained an exceptional industry partner with a well established gaming business, helping to ensure our future growth in the key regulated German market.
'Chartwell went through an extensive vetting process to win this contract with SNG. Our software and people passed the test and we are extremely excited with the opportunity to work with SNG in this growing gaming market.'
'We shall be launching Germany's first legal virtual casino and are required by law to ensure the highest standards of security,” said Rainer Chrubassik, Chief Executive Officer for SNG.
“With Chartwell as our partner we can fulfil our obligations in this respect while, at the same time, offering an outstandingly attractive range of products. The intense process of system implementation has been a great challenge to all of us but one we have succeeded in mastering. The project is unique in Germany and will point the way for future developments.'
