With its main office in Valetta’s St Julian’s area, the company used its official press release to share more details about this business agreement.
It was revealed that Gaming Innovation Group Incorporated has partnered with one of the biggest US-based casino operators Hard Rock International to initially launch its sportsbook in the Woodbury County-located gambling facility before the premier of both a mobile and online sports betting service.
GiG Incorporated also offers poker services through its websites including Kaboo.com, Thrills.com, Superlenny.com, Betspin.com, Rizk.com, and Guts.com. Gaming Innovation Group Incorporated emerged on the scene eleven years ago in 2008 led by its founders Frode Fagerli and Robin Reed. In addition to its main Malta-based office, GiG Incorporated has offices in Copenhagen, Gibraltar, Oslo, and Marbella.
Excellent Business-to-Consumer Sports Betting, Casino and Poker Services
Besides offering a variety of services to its customers including its poker, casino, and sports betting business-to-consumer services, GiG Incorporated also operates its extremely popular GiG Core platform which is a fully cloud-based gaming software initially named iGaming Cloud. At the beginning of its journey in the industry, the company was traded as Donkr International Ltd. as the holding firm of Innovation Labs Ltd. which is the trading firm behind the Donkr.com online poker website.
Four years later, Robin Reed and Frode Fagerli became the sole owners of the firm and rename it to GiG Incorporated we know today. That same year, the MT SecureTrade Limited back then known as Gust Gaming Ltd. company was fully incorporated in Gaming Innovation Group Incorporated. One year later, in May of 2013, the company established its Guts.com website that offers casino games and sports betting activities.
Back in 2014, the firm obtained necessary remote gaming licenses from the Malta Gaming Authority and United Kingdom Gaming Commission which allowed it to sign up games and payment vendors directly with punters as a fully-fledged, licenses and regulated iGaming casino operators. Several months later, the company’s other subsidiary H2Hpoker Ltd. after being renamed to iGamingCloud Ltd. launched its first B2B iGaming platform service which went live that same year.
Strengthening Its Presence in the Industry
Over the years, the company launched a number of services including its Rizk.com online casino as well as acquired several smaller businesses including OddsModel AS in 2016, Betit Holdings also in 2016 and Rebel Penguin in 2017. Thanks to its latest business deal with the Hard Rock International company, GiG Incorporated can even further strengthen its presence in the industry.
In its official press release related to the latest business deal, the company’s officials said that Iowa makes a perfect state to expand as it is one of only twelve states in which sports betting is legalized after the last year’s the United States Supreme Court ruling which invalidated the PASPA. This particular piece of legislation was the one limiting sportsbooks to gambling facilities located in Nevada, but its eventual revocation inspired the state of Iowa’s gambling commission to allow the state’s nineteen casino facilities to provide both online and retail sports betting services to customers over the age of twenty-one.
Gaming Innovation Group Incorporated already provides its sports betting services to players in New Jersey while customers at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Sioux City will be able to enjoy very similar, fully engaging and seamless betting experiences. The company’s official press release also details that the Iowa-based facility will be provided with the company’s omnichannel sports betting service. All in all, both companies will benefit from the deal with GiG Incorporated boosting its presence in the state and Hard Rock International further enriching its sportsbook portfolio.
