King.com Moves Into Online Gambling
One of the biggest online games websites in the world, King.com, has come to an agreement to host an online casino. King has traditionally offered both skill and chance games, but this will be its first foray into online gambling.
Casino software will be provided by Net Entertainment's Casino Module, after they reached a licensing agreement with King to provide 60 casino games. The opening will occur during the current financial quarter.
King already has over 18 million registered players, with that number set to climb with the new additions. The site currently lists 21 puzzle games, such as "Deal or No Deal"; 17 strategy games, such as variations on Mahjong; 14 card games, like Hearts; 18 action games, like "Daisy Defender"; 9 sports games, such as nine-ball pool; and 8 word games like "Word Link" and “Quiz Queen”.
The site has clients in over 50 countries, and has over 150 million gameplays per month.
David Blomquist, director of business operations and games at King.com said: “Providing high-quality entertainment to our players is imperative for us. We chose Net Entertainment’s CasinoModule because we believe that their product best supports our continued expansion and the size of our business places quite stringent requirements on the platforms we work with.”
