Aside from growing its library of online casino games, the supplier has also recently delivered an innovative progressive tournament tool. The new promotional product has already gained positive reactions across Red Rake’s network of clients.

Of their partnership with United Remote, Nick Barr, Managing Director at Red Rake Malta, said that this is a great alliance due to “the synergies between the companies” and that it would allow them to increase their foothold in already very strong markets for their content.

Mr. Barr went on to say that they are looking forward to working with United Remote and that they are confident in the mutual benefits the two companies would reap thanks to this collaboration.

United Remote CEO Jeremy Fall commented that through this partnership they will be able to ramp up Red Rake’s content to the operators on United Remote’s aggregation platform and that these operators and their players will gain access to “all sorts of innovative Red Rake Gaming content including a raft of thrilling slots.”

Mr. Fall also pointed out that the recently signed partnership is a step forward for both his company and Red Rake and that they are particularly looking forward to make the supplier’s specialist Hispanic titles available for operators pushing into Latin America.”
