Foxwoods Resort Casino has announced plans to partner with the GameAccount Network to prepare for online gaming opportunities in the United States. Foxwoods, which is owned by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe, is making the move for several reasons. Said the tribe in a statement, published in a Hartford Courant article:
“The alliance brings together the owners and operators of the largest resort casino in North America and one of Europe’s leading independent privately owned Internet gaming system and software providers. The parties will initially focus on play-for-fun online gaming opportunities in the U.S., and in the event that legislation is enacted allowing real-money wagering, the parties will utilize GameAccount’s cutting edge technology and platform to ensure a safe and fair game for all players.”
Like all agreements in the land-based and online gambling arena, the partnership is subject to regulatory approval.
The prospects for online gambling are promising for the tribe as its website, Foxwoods.com, gets about one million monthly visitors. If approved, the tribe states it will offering free-play Internet gaming later on this year, and will later be collaborating with GameAccount to provide services to other US gambling operators. Foxwoods’ main competitor, Mohegan Sun, reached a similar agreement online poker agreement with Vegas-based Bally Technologies last year.
Yggdrasil intends to significantly expand access to its gaming library through a collaboration with well-known online casino and sports betting provider, Betway. According to the agreement, the supplier will provide its portfolio to the operator across various regulated markets, including the United Kingdom, Germany, which recently opened the market to licensed online casinos.
A leading and well-known casino provider, Microgaming, announced that its online slot Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon WowPot Megaways, raffled off a huge jackpot of €3.8 million at the Videoslots platform. A lucky Swedish player generated a massive win just few days after this game was released on the developer’s operator sites.

Once again, Microgaming has a wide range of new online casino games that will further expand its gaming library. More than 15 new games have been announced for this September and one of the most popular titles ever, Mega Moolah, is due to be launched at the end of the month.
