Igaming studio HungryBear Gaming has secured a distribution deal with Light & Wonder, taking its multiplayer Slot Masters game to a number of brands through the latter’s extensive operator network.
With this agreement, Light & Wonder has integrated the three-way, head-to-head slot title into its OPENGAMING platform, in which it will become available to hundreds of global operator partners.
Robert Procter, VP Game Development at Light and Wonder, commented: “We are delighted to be able to announce this partnership between Slot Masters and Light & Wonder. The product is a true definition of innovation and the ability for players to go head-to-head on slots is ground-breaking for this industry.
“We look forward to being on this journey with Justin and his team at HungryBear and are hugely excited at what the future holds for this one-of-a-kind product.”
Light & Wonder has become the latest brand to acquire the hit game, following previous deals HungryBear has made with established platforms such as Entain brands Foxy Bingo and Ladbrokes.
Although Slot Masters is currently free-to-play, HungryBear is said to be in the final stages of development for its first real-money variant, with a release date set to be announced before the end of the year.
Justin Chamberlain, Founder and CEO of HungryBear Gaming, added: “This is a game-changer for the business and Slot Masters and we’re delighted to be partnering with one of the leading names in igaming.
“To this point we have been directly integrating the game with individual operators, however with Slot Masters now available on the Light & Wonder platform, this opens the door to an enormous array of global brands who can seamlessly integrate the game and reap the rewards of one of the hottest titles in town.”
Chamberlain recently ran through the details of Slot Masters in an episode of Beyond the Reels, explaining the title’s multiplayer, attack and defence game design.
