Commenting on their partnership with KamaGames, Kresimir Spajic, SVP of Online Gaming and Sports Betting at Hard Rock, said that they have “always found KamaGames as an interesting proposition a very promising company” and that they have first discussed a partnership “two or three years ago.”
Mr. Spajic went on that they are very selective when it comes to picking partners and that their decision to team up with KamaGames had much to do with the fact that the games developer has had “great success in a very competitive category by focusing on table games.”
