a little bit of history

Cookie Casino takes a unique approach to rewarding loyal players and describes it as “the world’s first casino adventure”. Cookie Casino is based on a space theme, and as players gain more points by playing games, they move further in space to reach higher levels and new planets. As they do so, they are rewarded with prizes in the form of bonuses, free spins, and more. The higher you reach the level, the greater your reward will be.As seen throughout the Cookie Casino website, everything is displayed attractively and clearly with colorful and impressive graphics. Players can view their level with a progress bar and see how close they are to reaching a higher level. “Values”, which Cookie Casino call awards, come in as they reach new levels. Players can also collect trophies and participate in reel races on selected slots.

Overall, Cookie Casino makes a lot of effort to make the gaming experience as interactive and enjoyable as possible for its customers, and definitely stands out from the crowd in this area.

In 1998 Ruud Lievaart decided to follow his heart and bought the fishing vessel ‘Sima’ to start a sport fishing company, providing offshore fishing and diving trips. Supported by his wife Alexandra the company grew rapidly. In 2003 Ruud met Jaap de Bruin, owner of the Blue Whale. The business relationship grew into a mutual friendship and around 2006 the first commercial trips to the anchorages of Rotterdam took place.  New vessels were bought resulting in the first small windfarm project at the end of 2008. This meant the real take off for Sima Charters. With the new experiences in the windfarm projects, dredging support and the Rotterdam anchorages trips, the ambition grew to develop dedicated CTV’s to maximize efficiency and capability. In July 2010 this ambition resulted in the first series of purpose-built vessels; the SC Puma, followed by the SC Lynx and the SC Cheetah.

Sima Charters grew into a global operating company, with highly trained and qualified personnel and highly respected costumers all over the world. The fleet is constantly evolving to meet and surpass the high standards set by the changing industries. This to provide the most comfortable and safest vessels possible.

Today Ruud and Jaap keep innovating and managing the newbuilding of the vessels for Sima Charters and are currently developing and realising the 23 mtr. SC Sapphire; purpase-built for the windfarms and another new 19 mtr. CTV specially designed for the Rotterdam anchorages trips.
