Online casino software platform SkillOnNet has partnered with game developer Ganapati, with the latter offering its Japanese-themed slots to the former.
Online casino software platform SkillOnNet has announced that it has acquired a selection full of Japanese-themed slots from game developer Ganapati.
Some of the games Ganapati produced include Journey to the Gold, Fireworks Fever, She Ninja Suzu, and Wild Sumo, among others. Pikotaro’s Pineapple Pen—a slot based on a Japanese comedian’s viral video—was nominated for Best Casino Product during the 2018 Global Gaming Awards in London.
Meanwhile, SkillOnNet powers different online casino sites and operators, including PlayOJO, DrueckGlueck, and Japanese-flavored casino Lucky Niki. Moreover, the developer’s platform provides an artificial intelligence (AI) recommendation engine that decides what game to suggest to players based on different factors including gaming activity and geolocation.
Michael Golembo of SkillOnNet said:
“We strive to partner with the most exciting and innovative game developers in the market, and Ganapati certainly fits the bill. Its Japanese-themed games are bold and unique, and will be a huge hit with players. Our Japanese themed online casino, LuckyNiki, will really benefit from the addition of Ganapati’s authentic games, taking the Japanese experience players receive to the next level.
Robert Downling, Ganapati’s chief commercial officer, added:
“We are very excited to deliver our unique Japanese content to such a fun and established company. We believe that this relationship will offer players a glimpse of Japan whilst enjoying some awesome features hidden with our games.”
The deal with Ganapati increases SkillOnNet’s game portfolio to more than 1,300, which already includes titles from well-respected software providers in the industry.
Expanding the Market in Europe
Earlier that month, SkillOnNet also revealed that it has applied for gambling licenses in two European countries.
The platform has presented its application to the gaming regulator in Sweden months before the Scandinavian country regulates its market once again on January 1, 2019.
SkillOnNet has also filed the necessary documents to enter the Portuguese gambling market. Reports from Portugal’s regulatory body revealed that gross revenue earned from online games of chance during the second quarter of this year increased compared to the previous quarter.
This welcome development has caught the attention of many online gaming operators and companies, with SkillOnNet planning to launch its own brand in Portugal later this year.
“SkillONNet powers some of the most popular brands in Europe, and to continue driving growth from these online casinos we want to be active in as many regulated markets as possible. We are lean and nimble, so completing the licence paperwork for both Sweden and Portugal simultaneously was not a problem. We see both markets as having tremendous potential, and look forward to working with the regulator in each to obtain our permits.”
PlayOJO, the 2017 EGR Operator Awards Rising Star of the Year, has already been launched in Sweden earlier in January.
