Gary Shaw, of NEKTAN, talks to eGaming Review about the company’s role in the mobile gaming industry
NEKTAN has only recently surfaced in the mobile gaming industry. eGR interviews their Founder and Executive Chairman to get to know them a little better.
eGaming Review (eGR): For the mobile slot gamer there is obviously a lot of choice in the games available to play. What would you say is NEKTAN’s most exciting slot game, and what makes it stand out?
Gary Shaw (GS): I question that there is lot of choice when you look at the mobile offerings in market. Sure, there are some good games, but quality is variable and it’s obvious who has invested in mobile and who has not. Right now we’re really happy with how League of Dragons is performing on William Hill Vegas. The double progressive and integrated skill bonus rounds make it stand out from the crowd and importantly generate healthy returns to the operator.
eGR: Is there anything else in NEKTAN’s catalogue that you feel readers should know about?
GS: At ICE we’re launching a suite of 14 brand new mobile-first HTML5 and Native slots. These great-looking games span a range of creative, math and volatility to give operators a lot of flexibility to enhance and differentiate their mobile lobbies.
eGR: For many mobile gaming operators the iOS 7 Safari issue is the elephant in the room. Have NEKTAN taken any steps in deal with this problem?
GS: If you mean the fact that the browser address bar and footer bar appear when the user touches the top or bottom of their screen, then yes, we have a work-around for this. Fundamentally it’s clear that Apple want to push all content into Apps, so we have to pay attention. That’s why we’ve built a flexible HTML5 mobile lobby that can be easily re-branded and which can be wrapped into a native iOS application and allows operators to deliver a usable HTML5 game experience to players. We know that some operators have their own in-house native lobbies, but we are equally happy to license ours to anyone who wants to short-circuit the process.
eGR: How important is distribution for mobile gaming? What’s NEKTAN’s strategy in terms of present and future distribution?
GS: We completely understand that operators are under constant pressure to maximize the productivity of their technical teams which is why we’re delighted to announce that we’re joining the Leander platform, and therefore the Amaya network. Our integration team tells us that we will be able to distribute to a large number of operators in Q1 2014.
eGR: NEKTAN offers a white-label casino solution. What do you feel are the key aspects of delivering white-label gaming and how is NEKTAN positioned to provide these features?
GS: We always start from the perspective of our reputable gaming heritage, licensing regime and compliance. NEKTAN is licensed by the Government of Gibraltar which is universally recognised as a leading jurisdiction in regulated remote gaming. The brands that we work with rely on our ability to safeguard them from the potential risks and threats that can exist in gaming. We closely couple this with an experienced client service team who work closely with our clients interacting across all levels to deliver world-class Customer Service and CRM. Our programmes optimise player yield whilst managing issues such as fraud, payments and responsible gaming compliance. Our mobile lobby, for example, creates a unique and innovative user experience that is easily customised and branded to suit our white-label partner brands. When you add to this our great games and scalable back-office we genuinely believe we are best in market.
eGR: The changes to online gaming regulations in the USA are indubitably significant to games publishers and gaming operators. How is NEKTAN addressing these changes?
GS: Our historic links with US Lotteries meant that we were able to sign a strategic deal this year with Scientific Games to distribute electronic instant games. We believe next year things will open up further, but progress will be on a State-by-State basis. We’re taking this market opportunity very seriously by relocating a number of key employees to the US and recruiting locally to establish a domestic presence. Our approach will combine social “freemium” gaming as an entry point with a view to obtaining the relevant certifications needed to offer our real money products into the emerging network of gaming operators and platforms. One thing that we’ve noticed is that gaming on mobile devices will dominate from the start in the US – something that plays well into our mobile-first strategy.
