International gaming technology and services provider Nektan has bolstered its B2B portfolio by establishing a new partnership with UK-based Bede Gaming.

The new deal will see Nektan’s E-lite platform integrate premium gaming content across Bede’s platform operator network.

Jane Ryan, Chief Operating Officer of B2B at Nektan, praised the new partnership: “Nektan’s B2B division and our E-Lite platform continue to demonstrate that we can quickly and easily integrate our premium gaming content into major, large scale operator networks.

“We’re delighted to have secured a partnership with Bede Gaming. It’s fantastic that our diverse catalogue of premium games will be available to its operator partners.

“The integration of our content with Bede Gaming’s platform will enable us to expand our global presence even further.”

Users of Bede’s operator network, which includes five partners with a total of 18 casino sites, will now have direct access to more than 830 HTML5-developed slots and table games across desktop and mobile devices.

Ross Haselhurst, Commercial Director at Bede Gaming, added: “We’re delighted to be integrating Nektan’s content distribution platform, E-Lite, across our thriving network of operators, bringing more exciting content to our clients and their players.

“This is a great partnership for both parties. Nektan’s speed of delivery, management of integration and game performance has led to a seamless process.”

The new partnership is set to significantly enhance Nektan’s global reach, while also demonstrating the providers reported Q2 FY19 rapid growth.

Nektan recently reported surging revenues and positive EBITDA, as it published its results for the six months to December 31, 2018.

Revenue in the period jumped 48 per cent year on year, and 17.6 per cent versus the six months to June 30, 2018.

Much of the gains came from higher margins in Nektan’s B2B division, with ten partners live by the end of December 2018.
