Swedish gaming software company Boss Media announced today that it has signed a license agreement with a third land-based casino company. The name of the new clicks-and-bricks casino operator remains confidential for now.
It's not an American company, said Ulrika Persson, investor relations manager for Boss Media. "I can't say whether it's Asian or European," she said, adding that it is a well-known and respected gaming company.
"We're very, very happy to have signed on this customer," Persson said.
The new site is expected to launch within the next few months and may operate under an Antiguan Internet gaming license, although a final decision hasn't been made. The casino will feature the full suite of Boss games, plus some specialized versions of games for Asian gamblers.
The site will initially be available in English, with other languages to be added later.
Earlier this year Boss Media announced it would sign two to four land-based gaming companies this year, and this is the first such deal the company announced for 2001. Share value for the company rose 11 percent following the announcement.
Boss Media already has licensing deals with two other bricks-and-mortars companies: Svenska Spel and Sun International.
