|TANZANIA, October 02 - Built on the proven success of its licensed online casino systems, Playtech announced today the launch of Baraka Casino - the first of a new generation of land-based kiosk networks aimed at the growing remote game terminal and electronic slot machine market. An identical online version of the casino was also launched - www.BarakaCasino.com.|
Baraka Casino offers players a choice of over 60 games, accessed through a richly themed casino 'lobby', and available at game terminals situated in locations throughout the Republic of Tanzania, on the east coast of Africa.
The joint proprietors of the Baraka Gaming Group, which operates Baraka Casino, Alain Rybaka and Julian Barges, described their search for a third party vendor who could deliver a highly entertaining, yet centralized, easy
to manage gaming operation - one ideally suited for the multi-location environment they had in mind.
'Finding companies to provide software for the game terminals wasn't difficult,' said Rybaka, 'but identifying one system that could unite all the terminals and the agents who run them, and allow us, the owners, to manage the entire operation from a single interface, wasn't so easy.'
'Impressed by our online system,' explained Playtech marketing director Dana A. Ziv, 'Baraka approached us for their land-based solution. The result was a product that sets new standards in terms of sophistication, customization
Playtech's kiosk system offers a wide range of payment methods, including pre paid cards and scratch cards, in addition to a specially tailored client and range of game terminal styles and interface peripherals. Many variables
can be adjusted at different levels of the network - from individual terminal settings such as game speed and sound effects to agent- and network-level variables such as session length and bet and deposit limits - all configurable by the network operator through a single management console.
The launch of Casino Baraka compliments Playtech's growing portfolio of tier 1 operators from around the world, the list of which can be found at www.playtech.com/portfolio.php
