Comtrade contracted to bring Pascual Games online
ComTrade has inked an agreement with a major European land-based arcade machine and games supplier, Pascual Games, to deliver a sophisticated iGaming platform for customers interested in launching online businesses.
The agreement will see the delivery of a complete online gaming platform that will include ComTrade’s Remote Game Server, which allows operators to integrate new content quicker and gain more control over their players' online experience.
The platform is designed to translate land-based arcade games currently offered by Pascual Games into an online gaming-ready format.
A company spokesman said this week that the main objective is to provide online arcade game portals that will help land based arcade operators extend their business online in regulated markets.
Platform flexibility will also provide easy adaptation to meet the Belgian gaming legalization requirements for B+ license holders, whilst all features integrated will comply with the Belgian Gaming Commission and any local legalization.
Comtrade's head of gaming, Ales Gornjec, said that the new platform is flexible and fits easily into local regulations to create a real competitive advantage for operators.
"Our iGaming platform with its modular approach has proven to be a superior choice, especially in regulated markets where time and flexibility are of the essence," he said. "The platform's unique game conversion process was designed for existing slot suppliers who wish to offer their popular land based content through new online and mobile channels quickly and efficiently.”
Serge De Gezelle of Pascual Games said: “ComTrade’s iGaming platform was the missing piece and will enable us to provide superior products to our clients and support the development of our strategy for online gaming.
"Compliance with Belgian legalization is very important to us, whilst compliance within local regulation presented a major factor when deciding on the right partner.
"ComTrade has also shown immense knowledge in both land based and online gaming which is of great importance in blurring the divide. Their solution was chosen for its flexibility, bespoke and fast integration capabilities. We have access to the platform source code, which leaves us with the option to continue development in-house for even faster time to market and maintain full control of our operations.
"We believe that this new platform will be a great addition to our online business growth and help Pascual Games distribute its vast range of games to a wider audience.”
