Targeted at consumers in New Zealand, the site will operate via a turnkey and fully managed online casino solution from GiG, including a technical platform, fully managed services, gaming content, front-end development, CRM, compliance and marketing.

As part of the agreement, GiG will operate the new website from Malta on behalf of SkyCity.

GiG expects the launch to make a positive contribution to revenue from 2020.

“This is an exciting day for SkyCity and one we have been working towards for some time alongside SkyCity Malta and our partner GiG,” SkyCity chief executive, Graeme Stephens, said.

“While ultimately a regulated online gaming market remains the preferred solution, the site launch is another step on our journey of pursuing opportunities to grow and diversify our earnings, addressing a new, fast growing industry which is highly complementary to our land-based activities and offering customers a multi-channel gaming experience.”

GiG chief executive, Robin Reed, added: “GiG is pursuing a strategy of becoming the global partner for strong brands in iGaming. SkyCity Entertainment Group is the largest and most reputable gambling and leisure firm in New Zealand.

“We are very proud to have been entrusted to provide our full suite of gaming services to them. It has been great to work with Graeme and his accomplished team and due to a great collaboration we have managed to launch a state-of-the art digital casino experience only two months after signing the agreement.”
