Asian gaming supplier Jade Entertainment has secured a new agreement with RPM Gaming which will see the duo launch the first GLI-33 certified sportsbook in the Philippines.
The sportsbook, which will be launched at Okada Manila, will deliver sports betting services to customers visiting Okada Manila’s flagship casino.
Richard Thorp, Director of RPM Gaming, said: “We’re thrilled to have teamed up with Jade and Biztech at Okada Manila, and we look forward to a long, fruitful partnership in this region with our market-leading sportsbook software.
“It’s exciting to see the reaction of retail customers at such a storied land-based venue. We continue to raise the bar for customer service and product performance.”
The new partnership marks the first Asian launch of Arkle, an EPOS system from Biztech Software, a mainstay of the Irish independent bookmaking circuit.
Arkle is currently being rolled out across Paddy Power’s retail estate, but this deal announces Biztech’s arrival in the Asia-Pacific, as the Northern Irish software house eyes expansion into new international territories.
Joe Pisano, CEO of Jade, said: “We were particularly taken by RPM Gaming’s innovative portfolio of products and are delighted to be working with them to enhance the overall experience at Okada Manila.
“The GLI-33 certificate, awarded for cohesive technical excellence, affords our partners total peace of mind for sports wagering systems across retail, while this new EPOS puts our clients at the forefront of retail innovation.”
Following the launch, Okada Manila players will have the ability to access markets on a wide range of different sports, both pre-play and in-play.
