Red Rake Gaming (Red Rake), has entered into its first agreement as a games supplier to the social casino industry which will see Wind Creek Hospitality (WCH) gain access to the full portfolio of Red Rake games.
WCH, an authority of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, operates several gaming facilities in Alabama, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Aruba and Curacao, and offers online social casino games to its customers. With the new deal now in place, the hospitality group will now be able to take advantage of Red Rake’s offering consisting of slots, video bingo and table games.
Ron Nesbitt, WCH Vice President of Game Operations, added: “Our social gaming site, WindCreekCasino.com, provides our customers an engaging and interactive experience that has proven to be an excellent retention tool for us over the years.
“We are delighted to enhance our offering with the addition of Red Rake Gaming content. The games provided are very strong, with high quality graphics, action packed feature games, and immersive bonus rounds. Combined with our top-notch rewards program, Red Rake’s game offerings will help us ensure a fantastic player experience.”
Although WCH is the first social casino customer in Red Rake’s history, this is not the Spanish supplier’s first step in the social casino industry.
Red Rake has offered a wide and varied portfolio of top performing games across various markets including Belgium, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Romania, Malta and the UK for almost a decade.
Nick Barr, Managing Director of Red Rake Malta, added: “We are honored to work alongside Wind Creek in their social casino business. This a significant step for us, because not only is this our first partner in the social casino industry as a B2B entity, but also because it is the foundation of what we expect to be another great regulated market for us in terms of real money. We anticipate a great partnership with Wind Creek for many years to come”
The announcement comes a few months after WCH completed a $1.3bn purchase of the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
The facility, which was purchased and will in turn be integrated into the WCH portfolio as Wind Creek Bethlehem, represents a Las Vegas-style resort which aided in the boosting of WCH’s gaming portfolio.
At the time Stephanie Bryan, Tribal Chair and CEO of Poarch Band of Creek Indians, concluded: “The purchase of the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem is a valuable addition to the Tribe’s existing gaming portfolio. This investment will expand and complement our already extensive Wind Creek Hospitality brand’s offerings, and bring added economic growth to the Lehigh Valley.”
