Not one but two significant deals have been a cause for celebration for the online casino sector this week.
Leading the way are Pragmatic Play, who have been selected by the Kindred Group – the holding company behind Unibet amongst others – to produce a dedicated live casino platform for the Scandinavian outfit.
The live studio will incorporate a raft of gaming tables and options for players, with roulette and blackjack offered in numerous different variants. There will also be Mega Wheel and Mega Roulette, the gameshows that are exclusively made by Pragmatic.
The new Unibet live casino will utilise Pragmatic’s state-of-the-art studio facility in Bucharest, where professional dealers are on hand to dish out the cards and spin the wheel – all beamed back to players’ devices via crystal clear 4K video.
Naturally, the chief business development officer for Pragmatic, Yossi Barzely, was delighted with the deal.
“This is a truly significant deal for us to have signed. The impact of having one of our fully customised Live Casino environments broadcast to the world via an operator such as Unibet cannot be understated.
“The deal is just the reward that the hard work of our teams deserves and we can’t wait to get started.”
Meanwhile, David Robertson – who is the head of casino at Kindred said:
“Our aim to provide entertainment, ﬁne-tuned for an unforgettable experience is going to be made that much easier with the partnership with Pragmatic Play.
“The bespoke product we’ll be able to broadcast will allow us to engage with our customers in exactly the manner the market requires, which is essential for us.”
Red Tiger Roars to Bet365 Deal
Red Tiger, the innovative software developer, has enjoyed their own slice of good news after signing a distribution deal with bet365.
The contract has been described as ‘significant’ by insiders, with Red Tiger adding new content to the UK betting firm’s ever growing casino platform.
Red Tiger is a prolific creator of new slot releases, and they will add more content to bet365’s repertoire, who have recently penned a deal with Gaming Innovation Group to continue their existing relationship.
It will add some classic titles to bet365’s back catalogue too, with the likes of Gonzo’s Quest Megaways, Dragon’s Fire and Dynamite Riches all soon to be available to the firm’s players.
Johan Nordstrom, the chief executive officer and chief commercial officer at Evolution, who acquired Red Tiger in December, said:
“Given the scale of bet365’s global operations, this is an important and exciting partnership for Red Tiger.
“The team has earned a well-deserved reputation for consistent quality that has been recognised by bet365, and there are some excellent new games in the production pipeline which will only add to that.”
The deal continues Evolution, who also own NetEnt and Ezugi, on their path to world domination. They now have live deals with many of the leading gambling brands on the planet, and their bid to monopolise slots and live casino gaming continues at pace.
