CryptoLogic Awarded BSkyB Games Contract
August 8, 2008 (InfoPowa News) — Veteran Dublin-based online gambling software and games developer Cryptologic and its subsidiary Wagerlogic have snagged a three-year casino licensing contract with the UK's major television network BSkyB plc. Working with Sky Betting and Gaming, a selection of top non-downloadable casino games will be available on SkyVegas.com by early 2009.
"In 2008, CryptoLogic committed to aggressively expanding its licensee base to drive profitability for the company, our customers and our shareholders," said Brian Hadfield, CryptoLogic's President and CEO. "This new deal, which will see our casino games made available on Sky Vegas, is a major step towards this goal. With CryptoLogic's innovative gaming products paired with the popularity of Sky Vegas, the sky's the limit."
Sky Betting & Gaming joins other top international gaming and entertainment brands that have chosen CryptoLogic-developed software, including InterCasino and William Hill. As part of its expansion strategy, CryptoLogic has recently signed contracts with 888.com, and BetJacks — with further high-profile operators in the pipeline.
Richard Flint, Managing Director of Sky Betting and Gaming said the company was looking to broaden its Internet casino offering: "We knew we needed … software that would engage our players with quality, creativity, and integrity," he said. "CryptoLogic's reputation for innovation opened the door, and their commitment to execution made up our minds."
