  • Approved by Nevada Gaming Control Board for operation online by Station Casinos and GAN
  • Proven to drive significant increases in Simulated Gaming revenue among participating Players
  • Increases relevance of Simulated Gaming to the ‘traditional gamblers’ frequenting US casinos

Management Commentary
Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN commented:
“GAN has been trying to ‘crack the code’ of Internet gaming and social casino gaming for US casino operators since 2014. Our LDT’s represent a significant legal innovation approved by both our client Station Casinos and the Nevada Gaming Control Board. Stations now has a unique experience online in Nevada designed to appeal to the ‘core gambler’ demographic already heavily engaged in playing social casinos.”
Alec Driscoll, Vice President of Product for GAN commented:
“LDT’s deliver what the patron really wants – to play slots online to win prizes – in a manner designed to ensure compliance with State and Federal regulation. The opportunity to bring LDT’s to market was a key reason for joining GAN earlier this year as their potential in other US States delivered to other clients of Simulated Gaming represents a shift in the Industry to focus the casino patron experience directly back on property-related websites and not generic Social Casinos.  This is a loyalty advantage for patrons, our clients and GAN.”
