SkyCity Launch NewsThe online casino industry is constantly growing and giving players more to look forward to no matter where they are situated.  

For players in New Zealand the gaming fun is about to begin thanks to the recently formed partnership between SkyCity Casino and GiG.

The long-term agreement between GiG and SkyCity Entertainment Group Limited will open a world of new possibilities to those residing in New Zealand.  

The Partnership 

In May 2019 the Gaing Innovation Group Inc. (GiG) signed a long-term partnership agreement with SkyCity Malta Limited. The latter is a new subsidiary of New Zealand based SkyCity Entertainment Group Limited (SKYCITY) and is there for the provision of its turnkey online casino solution which includes a gambling license.  

This turnkey solution will include the technical platform, fully managed services, gaming content, front end development, CRM, compliance and marketing. GiG will be operating the online casino site from Malta on behalf of SkyCity offering online gambling to players residing in New Zealand.  

According to New Zealand’s gambling regulations, it is illegal for online casinos to be hosted or operated within the country borders. It is for this reason that SkyCity, a New Zealand based company, has chosen to host their new online casino from Malta.  

SkyCity first revealed their plans to enter the online gaming market in February this year and in May announced their long-term partnership with GiG. The partnership could be one for the books as GiG is the legend behind some of the most impressive online casinos in the industry including big names such as Guts and Rizk Casino.  

Partners in Success 

The SkyCity CEO, Graeme Stevens, stated that they were extremely delighted with their partnership with GiG. Stevens said growing and diversifying their earnings was a key component of their group strategic plan. He continued to say that the online casino will allow them to offer an enhanced gaming proposition to their customers. He described the online casino as a strategic entry into a space they believe has more long-term relevance.  

Robin Reed, GiG CEO, was just as delighted with the newly formed partnership especially as it helped his company enter a completely new continent. He also claims that their new partners (SkyCity) share the same high standards and ambitions for a safe, responsible and entertaining gaming experience.  

SkyCity Online Launch 

There is a growing excitement around the launch of the online SkyCity Casino. The online casino is said to be launching in the third quarter of 2019. While this online casino’s primary focus will be on New Zealand players the operator will welcome players from Europe and Canada.  

While there isn’t an exact date of when the casino will launch there is speculation that it will happen sometime this month. One thing players can know for sure is that there will be an exciting new player bonus waiting for those who sign up at the casino.  

If you’re residing in New Zealand we’d suggest keeping an eye out for the highly anticipated launch of the SkyCity online Casino.
