As recognised specialists in mobile gaming they have a good provision of slots responsively designed for mobile use including the Best of British Slot and many other games which most players will have come across when visiting a wide range of different casinos.
Nektan was founded by Gary Shaw, an experienced entrepreneur in the casino world with a track records in the industry. The company was founded as a spin off side project from a joint venture with GTECH in 2011 and he is known for playing a role in the setup of the world’s first poker network.
In 2013 the acquisition of Mfuse Ltd, a company that specialised in mobile technology and services allowed Nektan to enhance and build on the gaming platform Mfuse had already created. The development of this platform lead to its full launch as part of the Nektan offering in 2014. It offered a fully functional and customer-focused mobile gaming platform and it was first launched on Nektan’s own brand site, Chomp Casino, with their first white label partner brought onto the platform within a month of the product launch.
In November 2014 Nektan were both admitted to AIM and so listed on the London Stock Market and also signed a lucrative deal with Spin Games LLC. The joint venture agreement with Spin Games allowed Nektan to target the US land-based casino market with the development of in-venue mobile technology, expanding their influence even further. The ability to split their focus across land-based and online operations has significantly boosted Nektan’s reputation around the world.
Nektan is a company continually evolving and on the cutting edge of the latest developments in gaming technology. They have most recently released extremely positive figures at the end of 2015, showing significant growth in their real money gaming revenues across Europe and these are figures they have looked to build on.
They are a company going through a significant period of change as their CEO David Gosen stepped down in January 2016, with the new CEO, Leigh Nissim announced in May of the same year. Nissim is a highly experienced figure in the online gambling industry, and has previously held roles as the global commercial director of IGT and commercial director roles at both SwiftStake Technologies and GTECH G2.
