Gaming is in our DNA
In 2002, we were asked to build the premiere internet lottery offering in North America. Surrounded by an awesome team, we accomplished that goal eight months later.
Over the next eight years, we continued to innovate and expanded to offer more lottery games, bingo, slots, table games, sports betting and networked poker. Ultimately, we’d created the most successful, government regulated online gaming platform in North America.
In that time, we learned a lot. We gained an intense knowledge of regulatory requirements, our obligation to offer responsible gaming options, the importance of gaming integrity and the technology required to make it all work.
We also learned that there are a lot of great gaming ideas out there. Unfortunately, most of that much needed innovation is stifled by long, expensive development cycles and an underwhelming approach starting with “this is how we’ve always done it”.
Too many great ideas die on the vine in an industry that is desperate to create new and innovative gaming options to capture a new audience.
We learned all of that while working for an exceptional government lottery organization.
In 2013, we broke out on our own. Bolstered by our knowledge, experience and passion to create the ultimate gaming platform, we started Open Gaming Solutions.
Since then, we operated the first short duration fantasy sports network, OGSN. We’ve built products for some of the world’s largest gaming technology companies and our platform is used by a top tier daily fantasy sports operator, Fantasy Draft.
At the same time, we developed what we feel to be the most flexible gaming platform available. We created the Gaming Markup Language (GML), which allows you to describe your game in readable form, we’ve created a solid player account management system, an API first remote gaming system (RGS) and have added robust responsible gaming features. We’ve also integrated with numerous real-time data and payment providers.
We believe the key to gaming innovation is the ability to utilize real-time data, to rapidly develop a proto-type and to get real-world users as soon as possible.
By breaking down gaming transactions to their basics, we made a generic RGS where most components are re-usable between games. With multiple real-time data providers and an API driven approach, we feel that we have the keys to unlock innovation in the industry.
We’ve come a long way in five years and have a lot of big ideas. But we’re most excited about bringing your ideas to reality!
