Kerching! is a British online gaming site providing casino games for customers from the United Kingdom. The website is licensed by the Government of Gibraltar[1] and the UK Gambling Commission.

The website is a browser-based online casino running Nektan software,[1] offering visitors over 100 slots, blackjack, roulette and poker titles to choose from. Kerching Casino provides online versions of popular land-based, 'Las Vegas-style' slots games such as Cleopatra and 100,000 Pyramid.

Kerching's Mobile site was launched in 2008 to enable their desktop games to be played on Smart phones and Tablets. Titles include classics such as Cleopatra, Da Vinci Diamonds and Rainbow Riches as well as modern, video slot games such as Ghostbusters and Transformers slots.

The site uses Sterling as its primary currency.

History[edit]

Kerching was originally part of Million-2-1 and took its first bet in 2007. In 2008, Million-2-1 was acquired by the IGT UK Group for an undisclosed sum.[2] As a result of that deal, Kerching gained full access to the library of IGT slots titles, which it set about developing for the mobile and online casino platforms.

In 2012 IGT Group merged its WagerWorks and Million-2-1 business into a single global division headquartered in San Francisco, California.[3] The new division served customers in regulated, legal markets globally.

In 2014, backed by private equity, the business was purchased from IGT by Kerching Gibraltar Limited. The casino switched from an exclusive IGT catalogue of games to a multi-provider game platform supplied by Nektan.[4]
