AIE Adds a New E-Commerce Option

18 May 1999
Software licensees of Atlantic International Entertainment, Ltd. have a new alternative when it comes to selecting a financial service provider. The company introduced BCE Emergis today as the fifth e-commerce supplier for its Internet gaming operator client base.

With the recent addition, Atlantic can now boast that it offers more financial alternatives for Internet gaming operators than any other provider in the industry. Operators of Atlantic's gaming products can now choose between Barclays Bank located in the U.K., Secure Bank located in the Caribbean, Trustmarque located in the U.K. and the Far East, Cybersource located in the U.K. and BCE Emergis located in Canada.

The company doesn't require its gaming operators to use a specific financial service provider. The list of supported financial providers allows the flexibility of utilizing various banks and processing in various currencies.

Atlantic President and CEO Richard A. Iamunno calls his company's commitment to offering several e-commerce options a key component of its business philosophy. "Atlantic is a provider of Internet gaming products and not in the business of facilitating on-line financial service transactions," Iamunno said. "Our goal is to offer products and services that decrease fixed operating costs for our gaming and wagering clients."

Atlantic International Entertainment, Ltd. develops and markets Internet and private network transaction-based products, including global turn-key Internet Casino ExtensionTM (ICE)TM, for licensed casinos; webSportsTM, an Internet sports wagering system; Lotto MagicTM, a lottery system for private, government and fund raising purposes; and Bingo BlastTM for charity and private organization use. The company also offers wireless and portable gaming devices through its Las Vegas, Nevada-based Excel Design, Inc.
