After signing an exclusive aggregation agreement with multi-award winning studio Wazdan, Scientific Games Corporation has strengthened its offering in key regulated states across the United States through its industry-leading OpenGamingTM platform.
This partnership will see the two companies working closely together to provide players with high quality, mobile-first games in the US states of New Jersey and West Virginia, starting in Q1 2022.
Founded in 2010, Wazdan has been growing quickly in recent years, launching over 140 games in 17 jurisdictions globally, including new and established European markets such as Denmark, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Malta, Spain, Sweden and the UK.
Wazdan's new focus on the North American market will intensify in the coming months, with the Malta-based studio currently finalizing supplier licenses in Michigan and Pennsylvania.
OpenGaming customers shall gain access to popular games such as: Black HorseTM Deluxe, Sizzling 777 Deluxe, Power of GodsTM: the Pantheon, and Relic Hunters and the Book of FaithTM, as well as new Hold the Jackpot hits such as Sun of Fortune and Burning Stars 3TM, with more to be added over the coming months.
This latest addition to the ever-growing Scientific Games ecosystem further demonstrates the allure of the OpenGaming platform to operators and lotteries in key regulated markets across the US and the rest of the world.
Partnership Director at SG Digital Steve Mayes said, "This exclusive aggregation partnership further strengthens the wide range of games we can offer players in key regulated states across the U.S. through our OpenGaming platform, which incorporate responsible gaming tools.
"Everyone within the industry knows how talented the team at Wazdan are and what they bring to the table. We thoroughly believe players across the U.S. will enjoy their fantastic portfolio of slots just as much as everyone else across the world does. Finally, I'd like to thank Bekki D'Agata at Wazdan for her assistance in getting this major deal over the line."
Chief Operating Officer at Wazdan NJ LLC Michal Imiolek said, "Scientific Games is a company that needs no introduction, being one of the leading players in the industry. We're delighted to partner with them in this exclusive agreement.
"Our progress in the United States has been our greatest success this year. We can't wait to work closely with Scientific Games going forward and expand our footprint in the US, providing players with immersive experiences."
