Monaco Company Partners With Cyberscan Technology
The MIS Group and Cyberview Technology Ltd. have announced the formation of a joint-venture company, MIS Innovation Technology (MIT), to distribute Cyberview’s downloadable gaming technology to the international casino and cruise line industries.
MIT will have exclusive casino industry rights to the technology, which uses a central server to download new games to gaming machines. Developed by Cyberview, a subsidiary of Cyberscan Technology Inc., the technology is currently used widely through the United Kingdom, with more than 2,000 terminals in use at betting shops operated by Ladbrokes, William Hill and Coral.
The combination of Cyberview’s downloadable gaming technology and the MIS Group’s sophisticated GALAXIS(TM) slot accounting and player tracking systems offers the casino industry a new dimension in slot machine gaming, according to Christian Fabre, CEO of the Monaco-based MIS Group.
“With this new company, we will be able to offer the casino industry an entirely new product that’s fast, flexible and very secure,” Fabre said. “We can offer the games in a cashless format or in the more traditional cash format.”
Peter Greenhill, managing director of London-based Cyberview Technology, added, “The new platform that we are offering allows multiple games on the same machine either from our own games library or from third-party games developers. New games can be easily downloaded tailored exactly to each customer’s specific requirements. We are truly able to offer the Future of Gaming … Today.”
The MIS Group, which includes Monaco Informatiques Systemes, GRIPS (based in Graz, Austria) and Gaming Systems International (based in Las Vegas), is one of the leading technology companies in the gaming industry today, offering casino operators around the world an integrated, multi-platform solution to casino operations (www.misgroup.biz).
Cyberscan Technology Inc., and its U.K. subsidiary Cyberview Technology Ltd., provide unique integrated solutions for the gaming and leisure industries and have developed and implemented over 43,000 gaming terminals worldwide. Other solutions include cashless transaction processing kiosks suitable for gaming, loyalty programs, information, and leisure applications (www.cybview.com).
Packer bets on Ainsworth for net casino
Billionaires Mr Len Ainsworth and Mr Kerry Packer have teamed up together in the South Pacific, with the poker-machine king agreeing to provide the media mogul with exclusive games for his recently launched online casino in Vanuatu.
Mr Ainsworth’s recently floated Ainsworth Game Technology will provide Publishing and Broadcasting Ltd’s crowngames.com with a limited number of online games and Trusted Online Casino Singapore before ramping up production after the initial games have been integrated. A value on the deal was not provided.
PBL launched crowngames.com this month. The site enables internet surfers to play games such as blackjack and baccarat.
But the site, leveraged off PBL’s Crown Casino, is unavailable to Australian, New Zealand or US residents and will target Asian gamblers.
“AGT’s extensive expertise and cutting-edge technology will provide crowngames.com with a variety of games offering revolutionary graphics and increased player entertainment,” the chief executive of AGT, Mr Jim O’Mahony, said.
“The agreement allows AGT to expand its range of games, but will not conflict with its existing customer base as legislation in Australia prevents internet gaming for Australian residents.”
The chief executive of PBL Gaming’s Vanuatu operation, Mr Andrew MacDonald, said the launch of the site had been successful.
“The response from players has been encouraging,” he said.
The PBL agreement helped push shares in AGT, which listed at $1 in December last year, up 7¢ to $1.20. PBL shares closed 2¢ lower at $9.82.
