Aspire Global, one of the leading online gambling solutions providers, has signed a partnership deal with Funfair Casino to enter the Irish online gambling market. Funfair Casino is one of Ireland’s most popular casino groups.
Aspire Global recently announced its partnership with Funfair Casino as it seeks to translate its land-based gambling success to the online space. The Malta-based online solutions provider is set to enter the Irish online gambling market via Funfair Casino.
Under the new partnership, Funfair Casino, one of the largest casino groups in Ireland running over 25 gambling platforms in the country, will benefit from Aspire Global’s proprietary technology. This includes risk and fraud management, customer support as well as a CRM that Funfair Casino brands will use.
Philip O’Leary, a Director at Funfair Casino, said that the company looks for experience, several products that ensure players get the best gambling experience, and technology when exploring partnership opportunities. According to the Director, Aspire Global met all the requirements, adding that the company has the capacity to offer an omnichannel platform.
On his end, Tsachi Maimon, Aspire Global CEO, commented on the deal saying that Funfair ranks among the most popular and established casino groups in Ireland’s gambling market. As such, the company will be looking at establishing an online alternative for punters in the country. Aspire is set to offer an online gambling platform as it supports Funfair’s introduction to the online space.
Maimon added that the partnership is a massive opportunity for the two entities. According to the CEO, the partnership will be used as a blueprint of how land-based casinos can go digital using the Aspire PAM (AspireCore Platform).
In May, Aspire Global and Amelco finalized an integration deal that will see the latter integrate Aspire Global owned Pariplay’s sports betting services into its range of services and products. The integration is set to be spearheaded by Pariplay’s proprietary software, Fusion. With this partnership, both entities are set to expand their presence in the US gaming market as well as their offerings in the country.
The Fusion platform by Pariplay is already home to over 12,000 games drawn from multiple game studios across the world. Still, on Aspire Global and Pariplay, their visibility in Latin America was boosted after Pariplay entered the Colombia market in conjunction with Codere.
