Authentic Gaming enters Germany via Bad Homburg Casino deal
Live casino provider Authentic Gaming has signed a partnership deal with Germany’s François-Blanc-Spielbank and will be the first company to live stream from the Bad Homburg Casino.
Heading to the Birthplace of Roulette
The companies hope the partnership will be fully operational from the first quarter next year and that all Authentic’s licensees in European markets will receive the feed. This will mark the first time ever any live casino provider has live streamed from the floor of a land-based casino in Germany.
Lutz Schenkel, CEO at François-Blanc-Spielbank GmbH, explained that since 1841 the casino has a long and interesting history when it comes to casino and in particular roulette. The casino was founded by the Francois Blanc, known as the Magician of Monte Carlo. He reimagined the traditional roulette format, removing the double zero and inventing the single zero roulette.
“Through all our years as one of the oldest casinos in Europe, we have always prided ourselves on introducing new games and technologies to become a market leader in Germany. In this tradition we are absolutely delighted to be adding another chapter to our story through this partnership with Authentic Gaming.”
He sees the partnership as a milestone in their strategy to reach more players worldwide.
“It provides a huge opportunity for us to showcase our beautiful gaming floor to online players in regulated markets across Europe, and we look forward to welcoming guests to our tables, whether on or offline, in the near future.”
An Authentic Experience
Authentic Gaming live streams roulette games from tables located on land-based gaming floors to an unlimited number of online players via its network of B2B partners, including Mr Green, Unibet and LeoVegas.
The footage is captured on discreet high definition cameras located above the wheel and around the table, with powerful yet subtle microphones picking up the sound, all together ensuring players with the most realistic experience possible.
Jonas Delin, CEO of Authentic Gaming, sees this deal as a major cup for the company since now they would be streaming from the birthplace of roulette as we know it today.
“Bad Homburg Casino is stunning and we are truly thrilled to bring this famous gaming destination online and to the masses. This is another industry first delivered by Authentic Gaming. We are the first and only company to stream live games from Germany, and we have achieved similar firsts in Denmark and the USA.”
