Both platforms leverage Nektan’s market bonusing and business intelligence tools.

Speaking in the group’s results in July, Buckley said the firm was talking to an increasing number of larger market participants around the world and expected “a number of these to go live” during the remainder of 2019.

She added that these had scope to have a “transformational impact” on the business.

“We have taken decisive action to structure the company in response to the changing gaming environment and to provide the strategic platform for expansion and growth in international markets. Furthermore, a number of steps to enhance our product offering, including the launch of bingo and improved player journeys, have been completed in Q4 and we look forward to the new financial year with optimism”, Buckley said.
