“Our World Series of Poker agreement with Caesars gives us an excellent business-to-business deal with one of the largest global gaming brands and most prominent casino operators and we also have a strategic alliance with one of the largest gaming machine manufacturers in the world [in] WMS Industries Incorporated. We now have a significant financial partner for our leading business-to-consumer product, the final piece in the jigsaw completing our United States online strategy.”

Mattingley goes on to state that the venture project could not only “tackle a potential huge market” bu also takes advantage of “the significant opportunities that will be provided by a regulated United States gaming market.”
