Relax Gaming enhances BTG partnership

IGaming aggregator and supplier Relax Gaming has enhanced its partnership with Big Time Gaming by signing an IP agreement covering the studio’s latest game engine mechanic, Megaclusters.

Under the terms of the agreement, Relax will be able to enable its in-house studios and Silver Bullet partners to apply Megaclusters to proprietary titles, providing additional value to the full-service offering already available to up-and-coming slot developers via Relax’s most comprehensive distribution option.

Simon Hammon, Relax Gaming CPO, said: “BTG is a longstanding and trusted partner of Relax Gaming and it’s fantastic to see our relationship continue to grow with this deal, equipping our slot developers with an exciting new concept to play with.

“Megaclusters is another great innovation from the makers of Megaways and we’re proud to be chosen as the first partner to gain the rights to apply this original mechanic to our own games and offer as an option to our Silver Bullet studios.”

Relax is the first partner to be offered the intellectual property rights to the mechanic, which includes an additional twist to the cluster pay concept and has proved widely popular with players since making its debut in BTG’s Star Cluster.

The agreement further cements the partnership between BTG and Relax, which has gone from strength to strength since the pair joined forces in 2018. As well as holding IP rights to Megaways, Relax was also amongst the first three platform providers to distribute BTG’s content in Europe and launched games such as The Final Countdown with extended exclusivity.

Nik Robinson, CEO at Big Time Gaming, added: “Having already exceeded our expectations in terms of popularity with players, Megaclusters has the potential to become another successful franchise and we’re excited to see it develop.

“Time and again Relax has demonstrated extraordinary speed-to-market and reliability, so we know that Megaclusters will be expertly applied in the hands of their talented studios.”
