EveryMatrix has put pen to paper on a patent licence agreement with International Game Technology in a move that will ‘increase the igaming provider’s reach and strengthen its position in the US and beyond’.
Under the terms of the agreement, EveryMatrix will be able to offer slots across North America that utilise patented game features within IGT’s portfolio and others in its game features patent licensing program.
“Signing a patent licence agreement with IGT was an important milestone in our US expansion,” explained Erik Nyman, President of EveryMatrix Americas.
“Through this agreement, EveryMatrix will have access to IGT’s game feature patents, allowing us to distribute our gaming content to partners across North America.”
With IGT lauded as ‘largest slot game feature patents portfolio in North America’, the development comes off the back of the company’s link-up with Aristocrat Leisure where they inked a broad patent cross-licensing agreement for title features and remote game server technologies.
This enabled IGT to offer licences to the company’s combined game feature and RGS patent portfolios to the gaming sector around the globe.
Stephen Calogero, VP and Deputy General Counsel, Global Gaming and Intellectual Property at IGT, added: “We are pleased to add EveryMatrix as a member of the game features licensing program which has fostered unprecedented innovation for game mechanics across the industry.”
