Respin LLC launches into US market with major casino deal

The US subsidiary of Nektan PLC, Respin LLC, has signed its first major contract with a Tier-1 US casino operator.

Respin LLC has strengthened its launch into the US casino market with the announcement it has completed its first major contract with a Tier-1 operator in the States.

The company, which is the US operating subsidiary of Nektan PLC, will be launching its Rapid Games in-venue mobile games solution into a major marquee casino in California by a Tier-1 US casino operator with a large footprint in both commercial and tribal markets in the US.

Respin’s Rapid Games is the casino industry’s first and only independently certified Class II (Protected Tribal Gaming Category) in-resort Bring Your Own Device (“BYOD”) mobile platform.

Daniel DeWaal, CEO of Respin, said: “It’s fantastic to see our platform hit the ground with such a prestigious US casino partner, which helps to give confidence to so many other interested parties in the US that Rapid Games is clearly the way to attract millennial players and increase wider player engagement across the casino property.”

The Californian operator deal is the first step in Respin’s launch into the US, with the company currently holding a further five signed Letters of Intent to launch into multiple states in the US.

In addition, Respin claims it has a strong pipeline of additional interested parties wishing to go live after the platform enters the market and the Rapid Games platform will be completing third party certification in the coming weeks to also offer Class III games (Traditional Casino Slots) in the US.

Commenting on this initial deal, Leigh Nissim, CEO of Nektan, said: “We are very pleased to have signed our first contract with a top US casino operator, which underlines the quality and uniqueness of our in mobile in-venue casino solutions. We look forward to updating shareholders as we make further significant progress during 2017.”
