Comtrade Gaming has entered into a key strategic technology partnership with Asian-facing gambling operator Mansion88, designed to drive business evolution of the firm.

As part of the deal M88 is to migrate its complete back-end system and player portal on to Comtrade’s enterprise gaming platform iCore.

A Mansion spokesperson commented: “Mansion is currently going through a phase of evolution, and Comtrade Gaming will now play a key role in shaping the future of our technical capabilities.

“We have always been at the cutting edge with our propriety sportsbook and live dealer software, we will now have a back end platform to help us support this and realise the future business ambitions. 

“We invested a lot of time analysing the platform market and Comtrade Gaming was a clear choice for an enterprise of our size and scale.”

The technology supplier to the gaming industry is to replace M88’s legacy systems with iCore platform capabilities, which it states will offer “highest player volumes and market leading stability”.

Furthermore, via combining with the firm’s live casino and sportsbook it’s hoped the partnership will drive further product diversification through enhanced player management features.

Steven Valentine, director of interactive for Comtrade Gaming, explained: “The Mansion deal represents a huge win for Comtrade Gaming. Mansion is a major player in the industry, they have a fantastic brand with a great history and we are very proud to be partnering with them. 

“We have been present in Asia and Europe for 6 years now providing iCore to many tier one clients and this partnership cements our place as the go to PAM provider for enterprise level operators. 

“Integrating multiple in-house products and combining with this with many third party products into a single seamless backend takes a lot of planning and expertise to mitigate any business risk.

Adding: “Comtrade Gaming is built on a consistent foundation of successful project delivery. Many operators tolerate poor vendor service or major issues with their own legacy software due to the fear of platform migration. 

“We prove time and again that our vast experience and flexible approach with individual client needs makes us a very reliable choice for operators looking to improve their platform technology.”
