After busy year, what’s in store for SkillOnNet in 2015?

Friday, November 28, 2014 Totally Gaming What is the significance of your new partnership with Net Entertainment?

Michael Golembo: “The tie up with Net Ent allows us to really attack markets where they already have a loyal following. The popularity of their games will also give us the ammunition to really breakthrough in new markets as well.

“Their games are now a must have for online casinos and slot sites and adding them to our proprietary games and the others we aggregate is a winning combination in any market.” You have had an extremely busy year of slot game launches. How do you reflect on 2014 in this regard?

MG: “This has been an excellent year. We are constantly looking to improve both the quality and commerciality of own proprietary games, and we think we got it right this year.

“The range of slots we’ve released in the past 12 months has been exceptional, reaching levels we haven’t been able to achieve before. We’re very excited about 2015 too, and the roll out of more and more white label casinos via our B2B services.” You have also linked up with the likes of Williams Interactive this year and you mentioned that the Net Entertainment deal would be the first of “many” on the horizon. How many more partnerships do you envisage in the coming six months, and what type of partnerships are you looking for?

MG: “Thanks to recent deals with Williams and Net Ent, we now have a huge road map of new games to release. This will provide us with a complete package to take to market that will naturally attract interest from those looking to operate a white label casino.

“We have a couple of new deals in the pipeline, but are interested to hear from anyone looking for the complete online casino solution.” With the expansion of your B2B business, do you see SkillOnNet being a business that is more consumer or business-facing in the future? What will be your core focus?

MG: “We see both the B2B and B2C sides of the business as vitally important. We have been involved in B2B for some time through white labelling and licensee deals, but are now shifting focus to see more of our own games featured on other casinos in the future.

“The two are hugely complementary as we learn a huge amount on a daily basis from our B2C side that influences our product development. A company that can supply and operate is in a great position.” What has been the impact of your acquisition of earlier this year?

MG: “Our acquisition of the assets gave SkillOnNet a vital foothold in the UK market. After migrating over to a brand new casino, Slots Magic, we are focusing on building the new brand into something truly special. The acquisition has been as successful as we had anticipated it would and we’re delighted to have landed the deal.” What are your plans for SkillOnNet over the coming months?

MG: “We are very excited about ICE Totally Gaming 2015, our first international exhibition, which will be the platform from which we truly launch our B2B initiative by showcasing our unique software and games.

“We will also be pushing our B2C brands, and Slots Magic in particular in the UK, and can’t wait to see where our beefed up B2B services take us in new and existing territories.”
