When the legendary Foxwoods lit up their Club Newport VIP Lounge in the resort’s Grand Pequot Tower with AG's single zero European roulette stream, the entire Betsson Group of casinos began carrying the streams.
More than 20 operators and 75 sites carry Authentic games and the number keeps growing.
Software and Games
Not all of the technology needed to deliver latency free, HD gaming streams is to be found in-house. The company has used the products and services of specialists such as Haivision and Limelight Networks to deliver broadcast quality streams to players on everything from mobile handsets to large screen PC display monitors.
Haivision has tackled such projects as streaming for NASA and supplied their encoders to broadcasters to assist in remote production of the London 2012 Olympics Games and NBC for the 2016 Olympics.
Limelight Networks specializes in high performance caching, content conversion, playback, and delivery, and web acceleration for faster response times.
Together, the companies' services and products help Authentic Gaming deliver consistent and reliable game streams over any device regardless of usage spikes.

The Final Analysis
While nowhere as large as some providers like Evolution Gaming or Playtech, the experience of playing on a real casino floor has a unique appeal. This can be seen by Playtech expanding their offering by partnering with Authentic Gaming. Playtech has the largest live gaming studio in the world and it's all state-of-the-art.
Oddly enough, Authentic felt market forces compel them to open their own studio in Malta in 2018. It does make their product offering more well-rounded.
Being an independent subsidiary of LeoVegas Group as part of LeoVentures, AG can only grow and succeed even more in the coming years. LeoVegas is an aggressive company when it comes to staking out markets and capturing players' interest wherever they operate.
