argeting hundreds of millions of Metal fans worldwide, and having already partnered with some of the genre’s major stars, Malta based Metal Casino has been created by a tight team of gaming, music and marketing experts, including former executives at Apple, Microsoft, Universal Music, Spotify and Mr Green, who are also heavy guitar music lovers.
As a pioneer among a new generation of online casino 3.0 operators powered by GIG’s holistic platform service provider iGaming Cloud, Metal Casino will rock the sector with its great portfolio of games and appeal to a niche community – including 400 million Metal fans on Facebook – via a vertical marketing strategy.
The platform will offer games from leading providers such as NetEnt and Microgaming and will launch through front-end partner FAST TRACK Solutions.
Metal Casino has already contracted some major artists from the Metal scene as affiliate partners. Only a small selection of traditional casino affiliates will be partnered, as Metal Casino avoids the revenue share squeeze most major operators suffers from.
Chief Marketing Officer Clas Dahlén, formerly Mr Green’s Country Manager, Sweden said, “Creating a vertical marketing strategy, based on social media, collaborating with Metal artists as influencers and vertical Metal media is a game changing way to penetrate the marketing landscape out there.
“With a loyal fan base, Metal Casino therefore becomes highly marketing efficient. Being relevant creates loyalty and maximizes the retention and ROI,” Dahlén continued.
Dahlén says the teams’ experience as well as statistics from the music industry proves that the Metal community is the most active on streaming services, and they are the most dependable and loyal people in the world.
Metal Casino is set for an international launch in the UK, Germany, Sweden, Norway and Finland. Communication will be only in the “universal language of Metal”, English.
Members can join the Metal Casino’s World Tour, which is one of the site’s games and loyalty programmes. Its own soft currency, MetCoins, will enable members to acquire exclusive tickets and customised merchandise in the Merch Room and get a chance to meet the world's biggest Metal bands and artists backstage.
“We have decided to take our joint head-banging sessions to a new level and create some real magic. Collaborating with FAST TRACK Solutions as Front End developers and casino room management we have a strong partner for years to come,“ Dahlén commented.
