Cryptologic Bags Dutch Government Online Casino And Poker Contract
Holland Casino signs up in a three year deal with veteran turnkey provider

The Dutch government owned Holland online casino and poker room, formerly powered by Access Gaming is to switch to Cryptologic software following an agreement with the veteran turnkey provider announced this week.

The exclusive three-year licensing contract will provide both poker and casino software for Holland - the Dutch government licensed casino operator in the Netherlands. The new site, run by Holland Casino on behalf of the Dutch government, is expected to launch in June 2007, and will be available to residents of the Netherlands only.

"At CryptoLogic, we're focused on strengthening our competitive advantage in Europe, and our new relationship with Holland Casino achieves this - in spades," said Lewis Rose, CryptoLogic's President and CEO, who was in Amsterdam for the signing. "By adding a government controlled casino operator to our blue-chip roster of customers, we have an excellent template for other governments interested in realising the benefits of safe, secure and regulated Internet gaming."

The agreement, made through CryptoLogic's wholly-owned subsidiary, WagerLogic Limited, reflects CryptoLogic's commitment to working with large, trusted, blue-chip casino operators and is subject to certain ratification, including by the Dutch government authorities and the Supervisory Board, a company spokesman said.

Holland Casino operates 14 land-based casinos across the Netherlands, including those at the popular tourist resorts Zandvoort, Valkenburg and Scheveningen. Since its first land-based casino opened in the Netherlands in 1976, Holland Casino has experienced several large expansions, including the addition of city-centre casinos in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Breda, Nijmegen and Groningen.

"As we take Holland Casino online, we needed a quality partner who could support us with innovation and integrity - and CryptoLogic exceeded our expectations," said Ron Goudsmit, Holland Casino's Vice-President Business Development. "We're excited to develop and launch our online gaming site, which includes a comprehensive responsible gaming program, with a respected provider who can deliver a unique experience to our customers."

Holland Casino will join other top gaming sites using CryptoLogic-developed software, including William Hill, InterCasino, Interpoker, Playboy Gaming, ukbetting, Littlewoods Gaming, DTD Poker, Betsafe, Parbet Poker and Extreme Poker.

The company spokesman revealed that CryptoLogic has introduced almost 100 casino games since 2004, including first-to-market innovations such as Hold'em Blackjack, a combination of blackjack and poker that has quickly become a player favourite.

The company has also introduced the exclusive online slot version of Cubis, one of the world's most popular 3D puzzle games, amongst many others. CryptoLogic recently won Gambling Online Magazine's Top Casino Software Award for the second consecutive year. The award is based on votes cast by readers, players and website users.
