Boss Media was launched in 1996 and the company’s original aim was to run an online casino named Gold Club Casino. This was launched in 1997 and shortly after they bought Casino.com and turned it into a casino news portal. This piqued the interest of several investors who were interested in purchasing software for online casinos made by Boss Media and from this point on they changed their direction and began supplying complete online casino suites to clients via a licensing system.
As the years went on, Boss Media established itself as one of the key players in the industry and alongside companies such as Playtech and Microgaming it went on to dominate the global online casino market. In particular, when online gambling was still thriving in the United States of America prior to the 2004 online gambling ban, Boss Media had provided more than 40 licenses to US online casinos.
After shifting their corporate focus towards the provision of custom e-gaming solutions, Boss Media sold off its internet casino and focused solely on its clients’ needs, providing them with online solutions and support.
Update: Boss Media bought by GEMed
In 2008 Boss Media was bought by the company GEMed and was rebranded to GTECH Gaming. They are now the world’s largest operator of online and terrestrial lotteries.
