Leading developer of virtual sports games, Kiron Interactive, has launched its Betman Online RGS live with UK-based online gambling operator, PKR.

Through the terms of the agreement, PKR will expand into new verticals with an initial suite of seven new virtual sports games which will be available via their PKR.com website’s new virtual sports tab. They will include horse racing, greyhound racing and football games. New game titles will become available in the future as the operator expands its portfolio of virtual sports games and these will include games such as basketball, boxing and Indy-style motor racing.

“Kiron’s virtual portfolio will help bring sportsbook fans closer to our casino and poker offerings, so we’re delighted to be working with them,” announced Chris Welch from PKR. “Their range of virtual games are among the best in the world and I’m sure the deal will help both parties to grow in the industry.”

Steven Spartinos, chief executive of Kiron Interactive added his company’s satisfaction with the agreement, saying: “Virtual sports have quickly become a staple for all gaming and betting websites and we’re delighted to announce our partnership with PKR, whose own 3D Poker product shows their passion for immersive gaming.”

“More and more traditional poker and casino players are choosing to play virtuals and we’re confident they will be won over by our impressive life-like graphics and exciting audio commentary,” he added.

The new partnership between Kiron Interactive and Microgaming allowed this deal to be introduced and delivered via the Microgaming platform.

Neill Whyte, director of commercial (casino) at Microgaming added: “We work closely with both PKR and Kiron Interactive, so for Microgaming to facilitate the delivery of Kiron’s virtual games to PKR.com was a no-nonsense deal.”
