Jade Entertainment to launch Jade Sportsbet at Okada Manila

RPM Gaming, the rising star of retail and online betting and gaming, has announced a deal in partnership with leading Asian supplier Jade Entertainment to deploy the first GLI-33 certified sportsbook in the Philippines at Okada Manila – Entertainment City’s iconic integrated resort.

RPM Gaming will be providing the software and the operational consultancy for specific applications in the Philippines, delivering state-of-the-art sports betting facilities to customers within Okada Manila’s flagship casino. 

The stunning 993-room property is fresh from posting a 76 percent year-on-year uptick in December gross gaming revenues to $91.1 million, thanks to an all-time high of 644,943 visitors in the final month of 2019.

The agreement heralds the first Asian launch of Arkle, a groundbreaking EPOS system from Biztech Software, a mainstay of the Irish independent bookmaking circuit. Arkle is currently being rolled out across Paddy Power’s retail estate, but this deal announces Biztech’s arrival in the Asia-Pacific, as the Northern Irish software house eyes expansion into new international territories.

This platform has successfully passed rigorous compliance testing, making Jade Sportsbet the only sportsbook in the Philippines with GLI-33 certification for sports betting operations. Following the launch, Okada Manila players can now choose from a wide range of different sports, both pre-play and in-play, scaling new heights for Okada Manila’s PAGCOR-regulated operator.

Richard Thorp, Director of RPM Gaming, said: “We’re thrilled to have teamed up with Jade and Biztech at Okada Manila, and we look forward to a long, fruitful partnership in this region with our market-leading sportsbook software. It’s exciting to see the reaction of retail customers at such a storied land-based venue. We continue to raise the bar for customer service and product performance.”

Joe Pisano, CEO of Jade, said: “We were particularly taken by RPM Gaming’s innovative portfolio of products and are delighted to be working with them to enhance the overall experience at Okada Manila. The GLI-33 certificate, awarded for cohesive technical excellence, affords our partners total peace of mind for sports wagering systems across retail, while this new EPOS puts our clients at the forefront of retail innovation.”
