CryptoLogic Signs Casino Deal With Gala Coral
April 6, 2009 (DUBLIN, IRELAND) — CryptoLogic Limited (TSX:CRY)(TSX:CXY)(NASDAQ:CRYP)(LSE:CRP), a world leader in Internet casino and branded gaming software, has signed a multi-year deal to provide at least 10 of its most popular online slot games to Gala Coral — a large UK-based gaming company that operates four of Europe's most popular online gaming sites.
The first games are scheduled to go live on Coral.co.uk, Eurobet.com, Galacasino.co.uk and galabingo.com in the second quarter of 2009, with a complete roll-out of the full 10-game suite over the coming months.
"CryptoLogic's strategy to focus on its Internet casino and branded gaming businesses is paying off with a steady stream of new customers — including top gaming operators such as Gala Coral," said Brian Hadfield, CryptoLogic's President and CEO.
"Players consistently mention that CryptoLogic has the world's best Internet casino software and it's exciting to see that major operators share their confidence in our games. The result is another deal that will enhance CryptoLogic's top- and bottom-line results in 2009 and beyond."
Gala Coral has built a significant betting and gaming business in Europe and is the only gambling company in the U.K. with significant businesses in the bookmaking, bingo and casino markets, both on the high street and online. The company employs more than 19,000 people across its three trading divisions, making it the top betting and gambling operation in Europe.
"CryptoLogic has some of the world's leading branded slot games, so partnering with them makes perfect sense," said Joe Coughlin, Gala Coral's Head of New Product Development. "Together, we will ensure that customers playing on our websites will continue to enjoy the finest entertainment and gambling experience."
Boasting more than 280 games, CryptoLogic has one of the most comprehensive casino suites on the Internet today, with games featuring some of the world's most famous action and entertainment characters. CryptoLogic has earned rave reviews from industry peers and players alike, and in 2009 earned Gambling Online Magazine's Top Casino Software award for the fourth consecutive year. Based on the votes of players around the world, it is widely considered the industry's top honour.
"The combination of CryptoLogic's top-notch slot games and Gala Coral's experience in online betting and gaming make this partnership a natural fit," added Justin Thouin, CryptoLogic's Vice President, Product Management and Business Development.
