Leading provider of online gaming systems and software GameAccount Network signed a content deal with land-based Osage Casino. According to the agreement, GameAccount will provide a complete gaming solution for Osage’s land-based casino customers seeking to move to online gaming.

GameAccount recently linked up with Konami Gaming, the US casino specialist, to provide gaming solutions to Konami’s land-based casino customers. Osage’s online casino will feature GameAccount’s land-based games that customers can access only in free-to-play format. The new site will be accessible to players around the globe with desktop, as well as Android, iPhone, iPad, and tablet versions of the casino available.
Osage Casino is a subsidiary of the Osage Nation network that owns seven casino properties in Oklahoma. According to GameAccount Network’s chief executive officer, Dermot Smurfit, there are several growth opportunities within the State of Oklahoma and across the US to grow the Osage Casino brand online. The CEO said the company was delighted to partner with Osage Casino, their first Konami customer. The deal follows the launch of its first simulated online casino in the U.S. earlier in February 2014.
