SOLIDICON SIGNS COOPERATION AGREEMENT WITH NET ENTERTAINMENT

Sweden based game developer Solidicon AB today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Net Entertainment AB, a company providing games and gaming systems to the online gaming industry.

Solidicon will be providing Net Entertainment with 3D graphics technology and other game components necessary to build high quality virtual racing games. Solidicon has developed a technology to port its revolutionary real-time 3D game content from its land based gaming platform to the online gaming environment. The first game title from Net Entertainment to see the light online is Golden Derby™, a virtual horse racing game featuring a realistic 3D environment, five betting modes which are familiar to horse racing punters, and exciting odds ranges plus a Jackpot pool.

P-A Gustafsson, Solidicon’s CEO commented, “With increasing competition on the online gaming market, we expect players will demand more from the games in terms of content, quality and innovative concepts. The uniqueness and quality of the Golden Derby™ product will set new standards and point the direction of what to expect from Net Entertainment and Solidicon in the future.”

"Net Entertainment is pleased to work with Solidicon and thereby gain access to their extensive experience of 3D graphics and rendering. We will continue to broaden our product portfolio moving forward and the cooperation with Solidicon will allow us to offer the latest in virtual racing games.” said Johan Öhman, Net Entertainment’s CEO.

Solidicon was founded by Daniel Hansen (CTO), Jonas Wikström (Creative Director) and P-A Gustafsson (CEO), three game developers with each having over 10 years of industry experience. Their company has developed a game engine with the capacity to show very detailed 3D environments in real-time. The technology also makes it possible to create an endless number of outcomes for game events such as virtual horse racing. Furthermore, it allows the customers to customize the product to make it more personal, such as dynamic in-game advertisement spots.
