Calgary, Canada — Chartwell Technology Inc. (TSX-VEN: CWH) is very pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Chartwell Games Corp., has been selected to design, construct and license an online casino for TURKBET, a wholly owned subsidiary of Wilson Sports and Racing, a well established traditional UK sports betting operator that caters to high stake punters. Turkbet operates traditional sports betting shops along with an interactive sports book site and land based casinos in Northern Cyprus.
“The Wilson Group are extremely experienced in the gaming industry and have a strong reputation for their integrity. We are confident that these characteristics will be keys to their success in the online casino business. We are very pleased to have been selected as their online gaming technology partner”, stated Darold H. Parken, President and CEO of Chartwell. “Our unique business model and systems integration capabilities allows us to deliver complete custom gaming solutions which put our customers in complete control of their operations, something which was very important to the Wilson group and which we believe is the model for the future of the online gaming industry”.
Chartwell has developed a unique integration module that allows a more complete linkage between the online casino and any existing operation such as an online sports book or land-based casino. This module deals with multiple points of integration including player registration, login, accounting, banking and loyalty programs.
The Wilson name has been synonymous with betting for over 25 years. Founder Mervyn Wilson built his initial chain of betting shops known as Surrey Racing. This later merged with Sports Internet, which in turn was taken over by BSKYB to form the backbone of the digital interactive betting service, offered on Sky TV in the United Kingdom.
“We carefully evaluated all of our options prior to selecting Chartwell as our casino software provider” states Mervyn Wilson, founder of Wilson Sports & Racing. “We were impressed by their versatile online Thaibet168 gaming platform and the customized gaming systems development that Chartwell offers as our technology partner. Our aggressive growth plans necessitated a supplier with such attributes, and we look forward to a long-term relationship with them to expand our online strategy”.
