Olympian Group Boosts Portfolio With Play’n GO Games
Premier gaming operator, Olympian Group, announced a deal with Swedish gaming software developer Play’n GO in a bid to boost its games portfolio. As part of the deal, the operator of GR88, GEObet and Bulldog777 brands will have access to Play’n Go’s full suite of table games and slot content. The two companies are also set to launch a Play’n GO powered mobile casino shortly in February. The Olympian Group’s current offering includes a range of casino titles powered by Microgaming’s Quickfire platform. It also offers poker fans a choice of games on Instadeal’s fast-fold network and operates a sports book on the TAIN platform. It also operates the GEObet network for U.S. tribal gaming operators.
Online casino players can look forward to an extended games library that includes Energoonz, considered one of Play’n Go’s most sophisticated slots title. Other games to go live on the Olympian network are a selection of roulette variants, pai gow, and baccarat. In addition, there will be two variants of blackjack and a Texas Hold’em based game for poker fans.
According to Peter Karroll, chief executive officer of Olympian Group, the company has deliberately built a system that can easily integrate iGaming products from different suppliers. The partnership is part of the operator’s expansion plans and its commitment to offering its customers the latest innovative games from premium casino software suppliers.
CEO of Play’n Go, Johan Tornqvist was proud to have partnered with Olympian Group and was confident that they would be pleased with its new range of products. Earlier in December 2013, Play’n GO entered into a partnership with newly founded gaming company Betit Group to feature the developer’s products at its first online casino, Thrills.com.
According to Henric Andersson, CEO of Betit, the company has long partnered with Play’n GO and was impressed at the quality of their games, which includes products for the mobile platform, one of Betit’s key offerings. Andersson described their relationship as smooth, on both a personal and technical level. Play’n Go’s head of account management, Ebba Arnred said that the company’s games were well received in the Scandinavian market. With Betit’s experienced management, the company believed that Thrills.com would be a great new addition to the market.
Play’n GO will be a supporting sponsor Fire & Ice Pantheon 2014 at its 13th annual gala event. Fire & Ice is the most anticipated party in the iGaming calendar and is scheduled to be held at London’s Troxy Theatre on Wednesday 5th February, 2014. The event will host over 1,800 executives on its main floor. Play’n GO is set to host guests at their own private table. Fire & Ice will open its doors at 8.30pm. All guests are invited to take part in the mythological Pantheon theme that promises unexpected twists.
