SuperCasino and Live TV Bingo launch for NetPlay

Interactive gaming operator NetPlay TV has extended its airtime agreement with Turner Media channel Nuts TV. The extended broadcasting hours will see NetPlay’s new interactive TV show SuperCasino being broadcast from 11pm this Friday and from 10pm on Saturday evenings on the Sky and Freeview platforms. The company will also be launching its daytime Live TV Bingo show on Sky from 1 November. 

The additional viewing times are an extension of the existing partnership with Nuts TV, which reaches an audience in excess of 23 million UK homes, the company said. The Live TV Bingo show will be broadcast on Nuts TV and through its own dedicated Sky Channel 867 between 2pm and 5pm daily with viewers able to play on TV and through the website.

Gavin Whyte, chief executive of SuperCasino, commented on the partnership: "We are delighted to extend the partnership with Turner Media. The Nuts TV Channel has the perfect audience for "", our interactive TV gaming show. We are also delighted to extend our interactive shows airtime on Freeview, which gives us the edge and broadens our customer base. The airtime, during peak viewing times at weekends, is a major boost for our business." 

Damon Letzer, commercial director, Turner Media Innovations, said: "We are pleased to extend our relationship with NetPlay TV plc. Interactive gaming is a key part of our strategy as we move forward."

NetPlay’s Live Roulette show will continue to be broadcast on Nuts TV from midnight weeknights and from 10pm on Saturdays and 11pm on Sundays. 

Australian bookmaking giant Tabcorp has called for the government to step in and stop bookmakers from offering tote services in direct competition to state-licensed totaliser organisations, reports the Sydney Morning Herald. Tabcorp currently holds an exclusive licence for totaliser betting in NSW and Victoria. Tabcorp’s managing director of wagering Robert Nason warned against the government allowing a situation similar to that in the Northern Territory to develop elsewhere. "Every Northern Territory bookmaker has the capacity to offer tote product and tote services that are identical to ours at a better price. While they can do that, advertise freely, and have a presence in the market it has to damage the future of tote betting and industry returns, because the tote is the major funder of racing.” Nason called for tote betting to be restricted to tote operators, but for fixed odds betting to be deregulated.

Sports betting operator Bet-at-home and soft gaming solutions software provider Gaming Technology Solutions (GTS) have signed a partnership that will see GTS integrate its EdGE software platform into the Bet-at-home back end to deliver its gaming product range. Franz Ömer, chief executive of Bet-at-home, said: “GTS has a proven track record of delivering their game solutions with rapidity and ease. Their unmatched product catalogue will ensure that our customers will quickly be able to experience the best games on the market.”
