Chartwell Signs Sportingbet 

25 February 2005

Chartwell Technology has announced the addition of European based Sportingbet to its growing list of clients. Sportingbet has licensed Chartwell's suite of 'Soft-games' and 'Bingo games' on a fully integrated basis to pursue this new player demographic and enhance its product offering.

Lee Richardson, Chief Executive of Chartwell Games, said 'This significant new signing further delivers on our commitment to developing our European client base; it also serves to reinforce that the Chartwell business model and products can add significant value to the most major of on-line gaming operators such as Sportingbet'.

Sportingbet boasts betting turnover of over $2 Billion USD from a player base that exceeds 2.2 million customers in over 100 countries and currently averages over 13 bets per second. Sportingbet has grown through the development of its existing business and strategic acquisitions and provides access to the Sportingbet brand in 15 languages and 15 currencies.

While the growth of online gaming continues its meteoric expansion as a whole, various channels such as Soft Gaming and Bingo present exceptional opportunities for those wishing to cater to specific market segments.
