|Gaming VC Holdings S.A. (the “Company” or “Gaming VC”) announces it has signed an agreement with Boss Media AB in which Boss Media will provide a Poker platform for Casino Club, Gaming VC’s online casino, www.casinoclub.com. |
This agreement will enable the Company to launch Poker gaming in July 2005. Gaming VC plans to offer Poker in various European countries and will localise its Poker offering to cater to players’ culture, language and currency, based on their region. In keeping with its historical strategy to not support U.S. bets, the Company’s Poker business will not accept U.S. customers.
The agreement extends the successful four year relationship the Company has with Boss Media, in which Boss Media supplies the Company with a gaming software platform, as well as operation, maintenance and payment processing services for Casino Club.
Steve Barlow, CEO of Gaming VC, said: “The launch of Poker will enable Gaming VC to further extend its gaming product offerings within Europe. Our online gaming business began with Roulette and has expanded to include a suite of appealing casino games. By working with Boss Media to launch a Poker offering, we will attract an even broader range of customers and deliver best-of-breed gaming in a regulatory compliant manner.”
Peter Bertilsson, President and CEO of Boss Media, said: “Online Poker gaming is generating more and more attention worldwide, and gaming companies that want to provide the best offerings recognize its value. Gaming VC has already established a significant number of repeat users through its Roulette, Slot and other casino games. By joining our fast growing network of Poker sites, the Company positions itself well for further expansion.”
There will be a conference call at 12 noon UK time today. Please call Gavin Anderson & Company for registration details.
