|January 20, 2005 (London, UK) - Casino operator Stanley Leisure has made yet another investment in the growing online gaming market, securing its foothold in the $20 billion dollar interactive gambling industry. Stanley, which purchased the Acropolis Casinos brand (www.AcropolisCasinos.com) in 1999, has re-launched the site to the US market using technology provided by gaming software giant Playtech.|
“We are delighted to be able to offer our existing and new customers the benefits that Playtech brings to the world of online gaming entertainment. Acropolis and the planned Stanley Entertainment brands being integrated with the software, will utilize the latest technology to offer products including poker, bingo and fixed odds games. We will soon be in a position to present an entire suite,” according to Jonathan Steinberg, Head of Operations for Stanley’s Interactive Gaming.
Stanley Leisure plc (LSE:SLY) is the UK’s largest casino operator with 41 casinos. Stanley owns and operates exclusive casinos throughout Britain including the world famous Crockfords Casino.
Stanley’s online casino operates through their wholly owned subsidiary Stanley Entertainment N.V. Their online casinos have unprecedented credibility in the interactive gaming market through their association with Stanley Leisure plc and the company’s extensive terrestrial casino and betting shop experience.
“Stanley is about entertainment. We don’t believe that an online casino experience has to be the next-best thing to a bricks and mortar casino experience. We know both sides of gaming, and while the experiences are different online and off, the entertainment value can be extraordinarily rich in each,” continues Steinberg.
