GameAccount to Help Foxwoods Offer US Online Gambling

Today the Foxwoods Resort Casino announced that they will be partnering with GameAccount Network to offer players in the US with online gambling options. Players will be able to enjoy games thanks to the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation who will be providing the gaming options.

The tribal nation is the owner of Foxwoods and will offer players play games without real money options until legislation options are made available in the United States. The new agreement for online gaming between Foxwoods and GameAccount is valid as long as regulatory approval takes place.

The tribe stated that they will offer a fun-only version later on in the year. The new partnership has business to business operations as well as turnkey online gaming solutions which will be available for other operators including gaming operators. The Chairman of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, Rodney Butler, commented on the new partnership by stating:

“The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation is thrilled to announce our proposed partnership with GameAccount. The Mashantucket Pequot Tribe has long been a leader in brick-and-mortar casino operations, and with the help of GameAccount, we aim to take the same leadership position in regulated online gaming in the US. Our shared vision unites GameAccount’s technical capabilities with our Foxwoods brand and our leadership in casino management.”

The CEO of GameAccount, Dermot Smurfit, also commented on the new partnership by stating: “As one of the first European Internet gaming system suppliers that moved into the United States in advance of intra-State regulation in 2011, we have developed the specialist experience, expertise and technical functionality required to serve Foxwoods from a hardware platform located on-property in Connecticut. We’re delighted that this experience and our unique capabilities will support our new strategic partner Foxwoods as they build a new Internet gaming business in one of the World’s most exciting emerging regulated Internet gaming markets.”
