Under the terms of the deal the supplier’s library of in-house developed slot games, including Temple Tumble and Money Train, will be made available to the Malta-based operator, as well as its most recent release Hellcatraz.

Marcin Sobieraj, casino operations manager at EnergyCasino, explained: “Relax Gaming’s portfolio is becoming a must-have for operators and being able to offer our players it’s engaging and entertaining proprietary titles, as well as a broad range of third-party content, will serve as a major boost as we continue to grow our customer base.

“Its offer of flexibility, speed and business simplicity will undoubtedly make it a valued partner and we are excited to collaborate with the Relax team to deliver a first-rate casino experience.”

Videoslots has enhanced its position in the Danish market after welcoming a selection of slots content from long-time partner Play’n Go.

The Danish customer base will now have access to a wide range of Play’n Go titles in a move designed to further build its reputation in the regulated market.

Videoslots content will now go live with the developer’s latest hits such as Annihilator, Ring Of Odin, Sticky Joker and Testament, as well as Book Of Dead.

Alexander Lapinniemi, account manager at Play’n Go, commented: “Our team has worked hard to put together an exciting, engaging and diverse portfolio and it’s great that it has been recognised by Videoslots and its Danish operations.

“Videoslots is continually challenging itself to become bigger and better and with the help of our slots we are sure we can help them on their way as we too enhance our industry reputation.” 

Push Gaming has further enhanced its player reach after announcing a deal with Genesis Global to integrate its titles with the casino group.

Facilitated by Relax Gaming, the integration enables players from Genesis to access slot games from Push Gaming, such as Jammin’ Jars, Wild Swarm and Fat Rabbit, on Genesis’ operator brands, including Casino Gods, Pelaa and Spinit.

Ariel Reem, chief executive officer of Genesis Global, said: “We are proud to offer our players one of the most exciting and varied game portfolios in the market which has been further strengthened with the addition of Push Gaming.

“Push is responsible for some of the most successful online slots in the market right now, including Razor Shark and Jammin’ Jars and we expect them to be just as popular with our players.”

Yggdrasil announced its partnership with Digitain that will see its casino slot library become available to the platform provider’s global network.

As a result Yggdrasil’s portfolio, including Multifly, Trolls Bridge, Jackpot Raiders and the Vikings trilogy, will be integrated with the Digitain platform and made available to its worldwide operator network of more than 70 entities.

Furthermore, operators will also benefit from access to games developed by YG Masters partner studios and titles featuring Yggdrasil’s Splitz mechanic, including the first two titles Temple Stacks: Splitz and Neon Rush: Splitz.

Ed Muldoon, head of region at Yggdrasil, said of the agreement: “Digitain’s platform is among the best available on today’s market, so we are thrilled to have the company on board.

“We have no doubt that Yggdrasil’s premium quality game collection will be a strong hit with Digitain’s operator partners and their players as we continue to expand our impressive commercial footprint.” 

Gaming Realms has entered into a two-year partnership with global entertainment firm Hasbro.

As part of the deal Hasbro is set to gain exclusive rights to act as an agent on behalf of the group in order to identify and help negotiate licensing opportunities for the Slingo brand in various digital gaming categories.

Mark Blecher, SVP of Hasbro, said on the link-up: “As Slingo is an incredible brand with a long heritage and engaged audience in multiple digital gaming and gambling categories, we are excited to apply our deep gaming licensing expertise on behalf of Gaming Realms to seek opportunities to bring the Slingo brand to life in new and unique ways.”

1X2 Network is embarking on an extension of an “already successful partnership” with Leap Gaming after adding the firm’s entire suite of slot titles to its 3PI game aggregation platform.

Under the terms of the extended partnership, Leap Gaming will continue to develop its slot games on its own RGS but will distribute them to operators via 1X2 Network’s 3PI.

These operators will now be able to gain access to titles such as Hercules Do or Die, Secrets of the Nile, Ali Baba’s Gold, Diamond Heaven and Mermaid’s Love.

Yariv Lissauer, CEO at Leap Gaming, said of the agreement: “1X2 Network has been an incredible partner to date and was the obvious choice for distributing our new slot games to operators.

“3PI offers fantastic distribution and allows us to quickly integrate our games with some of the biggest names in the industry.”
