The Australian-based Online Gambling group Centrebet has become Cryptologic's latest games licensee, signing a multi-year agreement for at least ten games from the gambling software provider.
It is anticipated that the games will go live in the third and fourth quarters of 2009 on Centrebet's Orbis platform.
A company spokesman said the agreement is in line with Cryptologic's "build-once-license-often" business strategy to return to profitability and growth. The deal takes the total number of Cryptologic licensees to 24.
Centrebet commenced operations in 1992 and in 1996 was the first licensed bookmaker in the southern hemisphere to offer online sports betting. It has since grown to become a leading international online betting and gaming company and currently offer up to 4 000 international sports and horse racing markets per week, plus a growing list of state-of-the-art online poker and casino products. Online poker and casino products are not offered to Australian residents due to regulatory considerations.
Luke Brill, head of marketing at Centrebet, commented: "We are delighted to have signed this agreement with Cryptologic who are known to be one of the best and the most innovative providers of gaming content in the world. We are confident this collaboration will heighten our customers gaming experience and will help expand our casino offering."
The Centrebet agreement follows a similar deal with Totesport earlier this week (see previous report).
