iSoftBet is set to be acquired by International Game Technology after the latter signed a deal in an aim to more than double its IGT PlayDigital portfolio.
As the firm enters into a definitive agreement to acquire iSoftBet for approximately €160m in cash, the process will also see the IGT gain the developer’s proprietary game aggregation platform to distribute third-party games, as well as data-driven promotional and user-engagement tools.
Vince Sadusky, IGT CEO, commented: “The acquisition of iSoftBet will provide market-tested proprietary digital content, advanced game aggregation capabilities, scalable promotional tools, analytics and strong creative talent to IGT’s PlayDigital operations.
“This will enhance PlayDigital’s competitive capabilities with a proven, complementary content portfolio across Europe and North America as we provide best-in-class games and technology to our fast-growing igaming customers.”
