A new deal between ShuffleMaster and OpenBet will provide some of the company’s most popular online casino games to Canada’s newest online gambling websites. The BCLC’s PlayNow.com and Loto Quebec’s EspaceJeux will be the first websites to offer these games. The new games that will be made available are Pai Gow with side bets, Casino War and Three Card Poker.
ShuffleMaster is a Las Vegas-based online gambling software provider. Over the years, the company has created a wide range of online casino card and table games as well as slots. Many online gambling websites offer ShuffleMaster games, and the brand is beginning to become a big a hit in the market.
The move into Canada’s regulated online gambling industry is a big step for the company, and ShuffleMaster is excited about the opportunity:
”This agreement provides us with an exciting distribution channel for our specialty games”, says CEO Gavin Isaacs. “It is further affirmation of our belief that this will be an important segment for our Company”.
The Canadian sites receiving the games will also benefit greatly from the deal. By diversifying their online gaming options, PlayNow.com and EspaceJeux will be able to convert more Canadian players from unregulated online gambling websites.
