Nektan is a specialist mobile games software provider. Setup in 2011 they launched with the intention of providing market leading mobile slots and gaming software. Their idea is provide both premium and freemium slot games to users who prefer to use a smart phone or tablet. The online gambling veteran Gary Shaw formed the company. He had one clear idea – create a company that would deliver world-class mobile gaming.
The company first launched with just a small number of slots games that it had developed. These games had been developed using HTML5 so they would instantly be ready for the mobile market. They also wanted to focus on simple, straightforward gaming. The majority of slots and casino games offered by Nektan don’t have many bonus rounds or video features, just simple wheel spinning. As the company had developed a handful of games it chose to launch three mobile casino brands – all only featuring the slots the company themselves had developed. The company also focused on the whole user experience and not just the game functionality. It has developed its slots so a customer can seamlessly make deposits and withdrawals, all without too much fuss. It is no doubt this ease of use will see it become popular in the world of online slots.
After steady development of its own brands and games it sought financing from the outside world. This was achieved by floating on the London Stock Market in 2014 and helped the company raise over £4 Million. So what has it done with the money it has raised? At the time of writing there are just over 20 different types of nektan slots and casino games. The number of games been developed and released is slowly increasing on a daily basis.
But the funds were primarily used for a system known as ‘Evolve’. The ‘Evolve’ system allows Nektan casinos to integrate other types of slots software. This means that a Nektan casino site will give its customers the opportunity to play slots from the likes of NetEnt, NYX and IGT – all big names in the mobile slots industry. Not only does it integrate with other software providers, but also it allows Netkan slots to be played at other online casinos rather than its own brands. This opens up a huge customer base for a small company that is steadily continuing to grow.
An area away from mobile slots and casino games that Nektan is exploring is the world of land-based casinos in America. It has recently gone into partnership with a company called Spin Games LLC with the sole aim of providing mobile gaming within land based casinos. It is clear that Nektan is a company that is looking to broaden its horizons with the mobile gaming industry and is sure to become a big name in the world of casinos as time progresses.
