|The gaming portal casino.co.uk is set to launch its own casino.|
It is partnering with Boss Media to build a bespoke online casino, which should launch within the next two months. A brand for the new casino has yet to be finalised.
Gaming Corporation, which owns casino.co.uk, will list its own casino on its portal at launch.
Casino.co.uk offers users tips and advice on how to play casino games such as blackjack and roulette, and provides links to recommended casinos on the web.
As part of the agreement, Boss Media will also promote the new online casino on its own global gaming portal casino.com, which offers links to the casinos on the web that use Boss Media’s software.
“Over the past 18 months, casino.co.uk has built up, and it’s partly as a result of its growth that we have decided to expand and launch our own casino operation,” explained Charles Black, executive director at Gaming Corporation. “The online gaming market is set for a lot of growth, particularly in the UK.”
The new casino will be licensed in Curacao in the Dutch Antilles as a wholly owned subsidiary of Gaming Corporation. Players will be able to buy chips with debit and credit cards as well as with cheques and bank transfers.
