Another US-facing deal
This week, the prospective US online gambling market saw another partnership deal – that between Golden Nugget and Chiligaming which will come to fruition with the launch of a free-to-play website in the next quarter.
As a part of the deal, Chiligaming’s proprietary iGaming platform, which enables connection with any poker platform or gaming content provider, will facilitate the entry into the market and maximize options for Golden Nugget as the regulatory situation develops.
It has been stated by said Alexandre Dreyfus, Chiligaming's chief executive officer and founder: "Chiligaming is thrilled to partner with Golden Nugget, which has a very strong brand presence across the US. With its Las Vegas, Laughlin and Atlantic City properties, it is ideally and uniquely positioned for all of the online developments that lie ahead."
On the other side, Golden Nugget's chairman and owner, Tilman J. Fertitta stated: "We started an intensive process approximately nine months ago and looked at more than a dozen internet gaming companies and selected Alex and Chiligaming because they were experienced in online gaming in Europe and demonstrated incredible passion, talent and knowledge which our team found to far exceed their competitors.
“We believe that online gaming is inevitable in the United States and that the Golden Nugget will be well positioned to compete when US laws allow for online gaming."
