|Gaming Corporation plc 'Gaming, the owner of the UK's most visited gambling website Casino.co.uk announces the launch of www.skillgaming.co.uk, a new website targeting the rapidly growing skill gaming market.|
The launch of www.skillgaming.co.uk expands Gaming Corporation's gaming offering into a market that is currently growing at 40% per year and was worth £76.3 Million in 2004. The new website will offer games of skill for fun and for cash prizes, including Gin Rummy, Pool and Pyramid Solitaire.
Current regulation in the US classifies cash skill gaming as competition and it is therefore legal to market and promote to US citizens.
During January 2005, Gaming Corporation achieved in excess of 2 million unique visitors to its websites; double the figure recorded in September 2004.
Commenting on the launch Justin Drummond, Chief Executive said, 'skill gaming is a high growth area and the launch of skillgaming.co.uk gives Gaming Corporation the opportunity to access the US market for the first time'.
