A stunning start to 2014 sees Tain shifting up a gear and driving forwards in high-octane mode, signing a record six contracts in January!
In yet another deal inked out this month, online gaming platforms supplier Tain will be providing Netherlands based land-based casino operator Casino City with fully compliant gaming systems including casino, poker, sportsbook and payment services for online gaming.
When Kinbar International wanted to provide online gaming to the 10 million residents of the Dominican Republic, they knew that they needed to partner with a team that could provide them with the diversity and experience required to compliment their existing years of knowledge in the industry as direct brokers.
After exhaustive research, Tain was narrowed to be the best choice for the following reasons:
- Turnkey service to Poker, Casino, and Sportsbook with some of the most recognized brands in the industry.
- Proven financial platforms that allow for smooth and efficient monitoring and controls that seemed would be seamlessly traversed by the customers making the entire platform user friendly.
- Negotiable terms in commissions that provided the profitability necessary when considering the multiplying effect on the bottom line when gross sales are targeted.
Scott Miller, CEO of Kinbar International, continues:
Investments of this magnitude require more than just a high quality engine that we have from Tain. It requires a dedicated and supportive human touch, who will work with you from day one to go-live, with all of your integration and training needs. The Tain Group has this intangible perfected, and we believe our decision will take our brand successfully throughout the rest of the Caribbean and Europe.
Nick Barr, Business Development Manager of Tain, said:
La Funda are a great operation and we are very upbeat about this new project. La Funda have extensive experience in gaming and we are thrilled they have chosen the full Tain suite for this newly regulated market which further solidifies Tain’s position as a platform leader in both regulated and non-regulated markets.
Online gaming platforms supplier Tain will be providing Netherlands land-based operator Krijco with fully compliant gaming systems including casino, sportsbook and payment services for online gambling, including mobile and tablet devices, to be launched on the day the fully regulated Dutch market opens in 2015. In advance of the opening of the Dutch market, Krijco will introduce their online offering with a Play For Fun site during the first quarter of 2014.
Privately owned Tain and NASDAQ listed Betting Promotion have begun talks discussing a possible merger between the two Swedish firms. This comes just a few months after Tain acquired an 18% stake in the company. News of the talks were announced on the 27th August 2013 and it is anticipated that they will be completed by October of this year further to an extraordinary general meeting at Betting Promotion.
Both Betting Promotion and Tain have been successfully operating in the online gaming market for many years and have had a close working relationship in recent years.
Betting Promotion’s Chief Marketing Officer, Richard Hogg, said:
Betting Promotion is a content provider and Tain a technology business. I see the merger of the two as an ideal opportunity for Betting Promotion to utilise Tain’s technological resources and know-how to further develop our products. In providing our content to various sports book solutions we find each has different technological aspects we could assist with in more detail with such a merger.
Christer Falhstedt, CEO of Tain, said:
This is an exciting time for both Tain and Betting Promotion, bringing together the synergies that will enable us to be able to further develop a comprehensive sports betting platform and continue to improve player experience.
Starting out with your first venture into the online gambling business can be a daunting prospect. There are many hoops that aspiring operator will need to jump through before they can take that first bet. Many affiliates have successfully built their businesses and want to take the next step to becoming an operator, but how simple is it in reality?
First up on the list is selecting what games you want to offer. Your players may focus on poker, but side games (such as slots or blackjack) are very popular and an excellent source of revenue. Casino games are always going to be income generators and have been popular with players of all demographics. So it often makes sense to add casino to whatever your target market is. Sportsbooks have traditionally been an expensive and complicated behemoth that gobbles resources. No more is this the case and now operators of any size can add a sportsbook offering with the Tain Thorium Sportsbook.
If you choose to operate under your own licence, instead of opting to piggy-back on an existing white-label, then next up on the list is to decide where exactly you would prefer to be licensed from. There are pros and cons to each jurisdiction. To take just two, Malta benefits from European location and the ability to gain access to certain payment service providers dominant in the European markets. On the other hand, Curacao offers a far simpler and more cost-effective solution with a single licence for all gaming products.
Tain offers a clean and simple approach in these matters, allowing new operators to grow in their own time through our white-label products with a full suite of games on offer, right through to becoming a fully licensed operator. Because Tain keeps your player data completely separate from all other data, moving your business onwards and upwards should never be a hurdle.
New startup operator Pandabet have launched their online gambling service with an Isle of Man licence. Pandabet have selected to use the Tain Commons Platform, Tain Payment Gateway, Thorium Sportsbook and our Thorium Casino platform with full integration of the Microgaming suite of casino games.
BetSoftGaming, the originator and leader in true 3D cinematic gaming, have announced that they have entered into a partnership with Tain, one of the longest operating platform providers in the industry. Under the terms of the partnership, Tain will be delivering BetSoft’s entire suite of well over 150 games – including the iconic Slots3™ series of true 3D video slots – to their operators in the European market.
Roger Admeus, BetSoft’s Sales Director, said:
Tain have been leading the way in providing comprehensive platform solutions to operators since our industry was born. They’ve grown and adapted as the industry has exploded in popularity, creating and maintaining a strong presence everywhere in the world, as we have. We are thrilled to be launching our entire games catalogue on the Tain platform, and we are confident that Tain’s vast community of operators will reach new heights of success while offering our amazing, top-tier games to their players.
Christer Fahlstedt, CEO of Tain, said:
We are excited to bring BetSoft’s impressive offering to our clients. With the addition of such a wide array of games, unlike any other in the market today, we are thrilled to be able to offer these pioneering 3D games to our clients. Tain is always searching for the most outstanding, advanced games to offer our operators and their players, and BetSoft undeniably fulfils these requirements. We very much look forward to working together in the future.
BetSoft’s full suite of games is already integrated in to the Tain’s Thorium Casino, and will be rolling out to Tain’s operators in the next few weeks.
Online gaming software provider Tain has agreed a deal to become the new sportsbook provider for OlympianGroup.eu. The agreement will see Tain’s Thorium Sportsbook being offered to players on Olympian Group brands GEObet.com, Bulldog777.com and GR88.com.
Christer Fahlstedt, CEO of Tain, said:
Tain is very happy to see three established sportsbooks make the transition to our Thorium Sportsbook. It is a great win for our product and establishes the Tain sportsbook as the leader in the managed sportsbook segment. Olympian Group has a strong positioning and very exciting ambitions for the years to come which Tain is very happy to be part of.
Peter Karroll, Founder of Olympian Group added:
Our team sources out and thoroughly reviews the top products available, we hand pick solutions focusing on the best customer experience and combining this with ease of operation and ability to adjust quickly for market expansion. Tain has assembled some fantastic gaming products and in our opinion the Thorium Sportsbook is backed by a very solid operation. Olympian feels very confident that Tain is a company who we can grow our Brand’s international market share and will fit well with our aggressive approach to new markets.
Online gaming platforms supplier Tain has acquired an 18% stake in sports betting feed provider BettingPromotion, making Tain by far the largest single shareholder.
Christer Fahlstedt, CEO of Tain, said:
BettingPromotion is a great company with a fantastic product. Tain is today providing the BettingPromotion feed to more than ten operators and we can clearly see the strength of the product. We believe both Tain and BettingPromotion are very well positioned to play a big role in the online gaming industry in the coming years. We are looking forward to working even closer with the management team and board of BettingPromotion to realise the full potential in both companies.
