DUBLIN, Ireland -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- CryptoLogic Limited, a world leader in Internet gaming software, today announced a strategic partnership with Orbis Technology Limited, an industry leader in the provision of interactive gaming and betting solutions. The agreement makes CryptoLogic's best performing games available to the top-tier gaming brands in Orbis' portfolio of customers through Orbis' Fixed Odds Games (FOG) platform.
This partnership provides CryptoLogic with another strong distribution channel to expand the number of operators that offer the company's market-leading casino games. In the first quarter of 2009, CryptoLogic expects to launch numerous games for SkyBet through the Orbis FOG platform, and other significant customers are expected to follow throughout the year through this channel. Orbis' impressive customer list includes Skybet, Betfair, Paddy Power, Blue Square, and many others.
"The global Internet gaming market continues to grow rapidly, and that is why CryptoLogic's strategy includes opening up new channels to market through the world's leading operators," said Brian Hadfield, CryptoLogic's President and CEO. "CryptoLogic's new partnership with Orbis Technology enhances both our position and our optimism as we revitalize our business for growth in 2009 and beyond."
Orbis' OpenBet software platform features a unique 'one account, one wallet' solution that allows operators to let their customers bet and play in multiple languages and currencies, across multiple products and platforms. Players can access the web, mobile devices, retail outlets, call centres and interactive digital television, all with a single log-in.
"Orbis is committed to offering its customers the greatest games and the most sophisticated solutions — and partnering with CryptoLogic strengthens our offering even more," said David Loveday, Orbis' CEO. "By working together, Orbis and CryptoLogic will provide a very attractive package to the world's most recognized gaming operators."
In 2008, CryptoLogic has signed a multitude of new customers and distribution partners, including some of the biggest names in gaming as well as promising, emerging brands.
With more than 200 games, CryptoLogic has one of the most comprehensive casino suites on the Internet today.
