NRM acquires Big Deal Games

27 November 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- NRM, the independently owned gaming technology and software solutions provider, has strengthened its position in the commercial bingo sector with the acquisition of Big Deal Games Ltd (BDG) from Timeplay. The purchase, which was completed on Monday, 20 November for an undisclosed price, will see Steve Rice, who has been a central figure at BDG, remain as Commercial Director of the company.

Explaining the development, Andrew Ludlow, Managing Director and Co-Owner of NRM, said, "This is a key acquisition that fits perfectly within the strategic and product development plan for NRM. BDG is active in the commercial bingo sector with an install base of 14 venues operating in excess of 1,500 handheld tablets in the British Isles, predominately in Northern Ireland.

"In terms of meeting our strategic goals, the purchase of Big Deal Games will accelerate our ability to grow immediately our installed base of handheld tablets as well as providing an excellent fit with the NRM Budde platform, which we are already installing with a number of notable U.K. bingo operators. While BDG will be run as a separate company, there is a large degree of synergy with BDG able to use the skills and support available from NRM, including access to technical help desks, R&D and finance functions."

He added, "As well as making sense from a business development perspective, the purchase brings together two organizations that share a similar 'can do' culture, possess an independent outlook and have a strong customer service ethic. I am delighted to have Steve on board, and I am certain that we will collectively bring new levels of design, development and service for the operation of handheld tablets in commercial bingo."

NRM has enjoyed a successful Q4 with the acquisition of Big Deal Games following the completion of a major contract to install the company's Numbers Betting Platform across 3,000 Ladbrokes Coral sites.
