Established in 1996, Amquest specialise in providing the technological infrastructure for casinos in Australia, Singapore and Macua. Our secure systems connect a number of the regions casinos, providing a platform that enables effective management and real time reporting.
Over the years our business has been at the forefront of technological change. When we first entered the market in 1996, we specialised in installing modem technology into a variety of leading pokies machines. In 1998 we were one of the first businesses to make use of secure 256 bit encrtyption virtual private networks, and more recently our cloud based management solutions are proving incredibly popular and cost effective amongst our primary casino land based customers.
The business was founded by David Jameson and Jim Charles, and under their stewardship the business grew within Australia at a rapid pace. In 2004, the business was acquired for AU$38m by Henyati Venture Capital Management, a Japanese venture capital firm, who successfully managed expansion into the Singapore and Macau casino markets. In 2008 Henyati sold their interests in the business for a figure in the region of AU$105m to the De Boatfield Asset Management Group.
As the business as evolved Amquest and it’s team of dedicated staff have been at the forefront of technology within the casino and gambling sector. Expansion into the German and French markets is well under way, plans which will make the Amquest business a truly global operation.
