London, United Kingdom, 2007/08/08 - Gnuf Ltd announces that it has chosen Microgaming to power its newly launched casino site. The operator, formed by a number of former Ongame executives, launched its poker operation earlier in the year – again powered by Microgaming.
As with poker, the site is expected to prove a big hit within the Scandinavia and Nordic markets.
At launch, Gnuf set out to provide a new type of online gambling experience – one where the players called the shots with an emphasis on player generated content. The site’s community area which features a blog, forum, news and media downloads, has already made it a big hit with the players.
The latest partnership with Microgaming will enable Gnuf to offer its players over 300 cutting edge, graphic rich games, including the high profile Hitman and Lara Croft series. Multi-language and multi-player capabilities will also reinforce the community aspect of the site by bringing together casino players from across the world.
Jonas Odman, MD, Gnuf says, “Our main focus is our players, and we want to provide them with the best gaming software available. Therefore, the casino software from Microgaming was a natural choice for us, when we now extend our offering by launching a full casino.”
Roger Raatgever, CEO, Microgaming says, “Gnuf has quickly established itself as one of Europe’s leading operators and the move to add casino will undoubtedly strengthen their position. After working together for the last six months on poker, we are of course happy that Gnuf recognise the quality of service we provide and have chosen our software for casino. We take great pride in giving our operators the strongest competitive edge, whether it’s through game variety, quality or technical ability. In the last six months we have added new languages, multi-player slot action and some of the biggest licensing deals in the industry – Hitman and The Osbournes, all of which we look forward to delivering to Gnuf’s players.”
Since the company developed the first true online casino software over a decade ago, it has led the industry in providing innovative, reliable gaming solutions. Thanks to an unrivalled R&D programme, that averages 60 games per year and a unique ‘partnership’ approach to working with operators; Microgaming (microgaming.com) powers 120 of the world’s most profitable casino sites, delivering over 300 games. The Microgaming Progressive Jackpot Network is the world’s largest progressive and has paid out a record $225m plus in the last four years.
