Friday May 18, 2012 : BARCREST ONLINE GAME LAUNCH WITH GAMEACCOUNT
Interactive division focusing on growing International online presence
Scientific Games Corporation subsidiary Barcrest will launch a selection of its most popular games online through the GameAccount Network platform in a deal announced this week.
Barcrest's popular game "Crown Jewels" will be the first to launch on the platform in June, with others scheduled to following throughout the rest of the year.
Alex Stephens, managing director of Interactive Gaming at Barcrest commented, “The global, regulated e-gaming market is growing rapidly, driven by the introduction of new legalization in many countries, such as Italy and Spain. GameAccount Network is ideally placed to assist in growing our global online presence and capitalizing on the existing popularity of our games.”
Dermot Smurfit, chief executive officer of GameAccount Network added, “We have a commitment to serve the needs of the growing number of regulated gaming markets and access to Barcrest’s extensive library of popular games is exactly what our corporate customers are looking for. We believe these games should perform well and we are looking forward to developing our relationship with Barcrest throughout the world.”
