CRYPTOLOGIC AWARDED MAHARAJAH CLUB SOFTWARE CONTRACT Major SE Asia gambling website changes to Dublin firm's software The formerly Boss Media powered Maharajah Club.com online casino and poker operations switched to Cryptologic gambling software and games this week in an exclusive deal with the Dublin based turnkey provider. "With a strong core business in Europe and an emerging business in Asia, Cryptologic will work diligently with Maharajah Club to bring the Southeast Asian community a truly exceptional gaming experience," promised Brian Hadfield, CryptoLogic's President and CEO. "For the Cryptologic team, it's particularly exciting to earn the confidence of a popular and well-established gaming brand in a very competitive environment. Cryptologic will work hard to keep this confidence – and to help Maharajah Club attract and retain loyal players." Under the agreement, made through Cryptologic subsidiary Wagerlogic, the gambling software company will provide Maharajah Club with extensive online casino and poker offerings. The companies expect to launch Maharajah Club's new poker site by the European summer, followed by the release of more than 10 of CryptoLogic's top-performing casino games later in the year. CryptoLogic will provide a larger gaming suite for Maharajah Club, including non-downloadable poker and casino products, in 2009. Maharaja Gaming has more than 25 000 active players, and expects these numbers to grow rapidly as more South Asian countries liberalise their gaming regulations and invest in Internet infrastructures. "Cryptologic's reputation for industry-leading innovation makes this partnership exceptional – for our business and our players," said Sachin Pawa, CEO of Maharaja Gaming. "Cryptologic's industry expertise will help us expand and broaden our competitive edge with Southeast Asian customers. Together, we will develop an extraordinary experience for our players."
