Online gaming service provider Gan has entered into a new cooperation to supply its simulated gaming software to the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians.

Under the terms of the agreement the new services are scheduled to launch during the first quarter of next year, with the agreement enabling the tribe to provide an expanded suite of online gaming and services throughout its operating region and beyond.

The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians owns and operates in three California-based locations, namely Agua Caliente Casino and Indian Canyons Golf Resort both in Palm Springs and Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa in Rancho Mirage.

“We selected GAN for its proven success in helping casino properties launch online gaming and for its ability to embed our on-property rewards program into an online experience,” Bill Oliver, CIO of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, said of the new deal. 

“Equipped with GAN’s simulated gaming, we will now introduce our casino properties online to a wider audience of casino enthusiasts located in adjacent regional markets.”

The Agua Caliente tribe is the 15th US casino operator to license Gan’s specialist software, which permits patrons to link reward cards to their online simulated gaming account and receive reward points automatically triggered by online activities. 

Furthermore, the tribe becomes the sixth major Native American casino operator in the United States to select Gan as its online gaming software service provider since the launch of such activities.

Jeff Berman, chief commercial officer of Gan, added: “We are enormously privileged to bring one of America’s largest and most vibrant Native American casino resort operators online with our simulated gaming solution. 

“Southern California is a significant regional US gaming market, with the largest population concentration in the US, reinforcing Gan’s market position as the leading B2B enterprise software solution provider to ‘brick and mortar’ US casinos.”
