Nektan was formed in 2011 by Gary Shaw to exploit white label gaming opportunities globally. Nektan is a developer and operator of mobile games in the regulated, interactive real money gaming (“RMG”) space and the freemium gaming space (free of charge but where money is charged for additional functionality or features), delivering white label implementations to large commercial organisations that have established online audiences. The Company’s two live primary mobile gaming channels to market, RMG casino and freemium bingo, are intended to be at the forefront of on-demand mobile gaming entertainment, and two further channels, RMG bingo and freemium casino, are planned to commence in 2015.

Increasing demand for on-the-go entertainment and mobile gaming content 
By 2017, it is estimated that there could be 3.4 billion smartphones and 905 million tablets in active use worldwide. Nektan’s market opportunity is driven by the increase in ownership of these mobile devices, as well as the increasing demand for on-the-go entertainment on those devices. In addition, the growing demand for gaming content on mobile devices gives rise to estimates of €19 billion of gross gaming revenue being generated from mobile gaming by 2018.

US market opportunity 
A dual track approach has been taken in regard to developing Nektan’s opportunities in the US. The first track is for its established joint venture, Broadcast Gaming, to deliver freemium mobile gaming content to established agency targets that retain large online audiences. The Company plans to use celebrity endorsements to promote the freemium bingo product.

The second track would see the Company deliver mobile platforms to tribal casino operators to provide Class II and freemium gaming content, representing a major opportunity to access the $27 billion tribal gaming market.

Partnerships and commercial pipeline 
Nektan targets large commercial organisations that have established online audiences for its white label gaming offer. The Company manages the full customer experience and all back-office operations, allowing the partner to solely focus on marketing the product to its customers as a distribution network. The Company currently has a number of live white label partners including Go Win Casino, Red8Casino, William Hill and Winzino. In addition, their contracted pipeline includes RTL Group and City A.M.

Nektan plc are based in Gibralta, London and the USA.
