Italian Betting Giant Signs Up for Skill Games
March 10, 2009 (InfoPowa News) — The giant Italian online gambling group Cogetech SpA has signed an agreement with U.K. firm GameAccount for the supply of skill games for its horse racing and sports betting website Mistertoto.it, joining a blue-chip client base that includes William Hill, Sportingbet Europe, Stan James, Victor Chandler International, BlueSquare, Boylesports, Paddy Power, and Gala Coral.
The agreement will allow the Milan-based company to broaden the range of skill games available and offer its customers the chance to play multiplayer blackjack, poker dice, gin rummy, backgammon, and dominoes. Cogetech will include GameAccount skill games alongside popular Italian favorites such as Briscola.
“We are enthusiastic and very confident about our new partnership, and being able to rely on a first-class network — essential for the success of a product. With their wide library of games GameAccount is without a doubt one of the world’s best skill-gaming operators,” said Fabio Schiavolin, CEO of Cogetech SpA.
Dermot Smurfit, GameAccount COO, said: “We are sure that our sophisticated skill games and tournaments will appeal to the customers of Mistertoto.it and in turn will become the natural choice for Cogetech’s corporate customers. Cogetech is the leading managed services provider to the Italian regulated online sports betting industry and we’re confident our choice of partner will ultimately result in several additional members joining our Italian Skill Games Network alongside existing members SNAI S.p.A. and Eurobet Srl."
