It’s been quite a dramatic couple of weeks. Coronavirus mania is now in full swing thanks to a hysterical mainstream news media that’s got everybody in panic-mode – indeed it seems the general populace is largely made up of clueless morons quite willing to forgo community spirit and stock up on every conceivable item in preparation for some dystopian reckoning that will never materialise. Whatever happened to the blitz spirit? And why are the frigging pubs closing? Uh, anyway, now that I’ve managed to clear a path to my computer (tinned food takes up so much space), here’s some news about some new iGaming software partnerships that have happened this week.
As well as the media-driven myopia, there’s been plenty going on in iGaming over the past few days – thankfully all of it positive – with an assortment of high-profile deals struck. Here’s a run-down.
Skywind Group and Superbet
Skywind has agreed a deal with Romanian outfit Superbet to launch its full game portfolio and player engagement tools. This will include upcoming releases such as Double Scatter 7’s, Fruit Reel, Gold Shot and Respin Mania. Skywind’s MD, Oren Cohen Shwartz was positively thrilled about the news.
Said Shwartz, ‘We are very happy with our partnership with Superbet’
Group Gaming Director, Joe Legge was also giddy with excitement, revealing that the company was ‘thrilled (to be going live) with (Skywind’s) content’.
Relax Gaming and Solid Gaming
Relax have never been shy about striking new iGaming software distribution deals. And its latest high-profile manoeuvre involves Gamesys’s Solid Gaming - all of the company’s slots are to be rolled out across Solid’s partner network including Tumble Tumble, Money Train and Snake Arena. It’s all about brand expansion, see. Relax Gaming’s Chief Commercial Officer Daniel Eskola:
‘This deal marks another important step in our 2020 strategy. We strive to continue expanding our reach and maximise our commercial potential through the leverage of our ever-growing portfolio of games’
Translation: ‘We will continue to expand aggressively in an effort to make as much money as possible while continuing to develop slot games that are more or less the same’
Pragmatic Play and Superbet
Superbet has been putting itself about a bit in recent weeks. As well as the agreement with Skywind, the plucky Romanians have also secured a pact with big-time online slots supplier Pragmatic Play. Consequently, its customers will gain access to blockbuster games such as Wolf Gold. Following the news, the boy, Legge was at it again, this time waxing lyrical about Pragmatic Play and its ‘well-deserved reputation for creating fantastic slot games’
Playson and Singular
Playson has agreed its own mega-bucks deal with some company called Singular. Thanks to this particular covenant, the latter will get its hands on a variety of Playson-powered titles like Clover Riches and Solar Queen. So high-fives all around then, especially for Playson’s Sales Director, Blanka Homor who also managed to include the word ‘diversify’ in her post-deal patter. Genius!!
“Diversifying Playson’s routes to market is a cornerstone of our strategy, so we are thrilled to be working with a prominent platform provider such as Singular.’
