Online gaming giant 888Casino has recently inked a content deal with gaming content provider Skywind Group. As part of the agreement, 888Casino has added a number of Skywind titles to its online casino games portfolio.
Following the addition of the Skywind titles, 888Casino will now be offering a total of 280 slots, jackpot, and arcade games, with 12 branded games and 50 jackpot titles from Skywind Group. Some of the Skywind titles to be added to 888Casino are Big Buffalo, Bloodsport, Bonus Digger, Boomerang Edge, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Downton Abbey, La Casa de Papel, Rambo, Star Trek: The Next Generation, The Karate Kid, The Last Kingdom, and The Magnificent Seven. These titles will be made available on both desktop and mobile platforms.
Other than these titles, Slywind will also provide the online casino with access to several of their engagement tools. These tools include bonus coins as well as time-based, amount-based, and split jackpots. Asked to comment on the deal, Skywind Group Managing Director Oscar Schwarz said: “888 is one of the world’s leading operators, and we are excited to go live with their brands. 888 has expanded into several regulated markets recently, and we’re able to supply our market-specific premium content in all of them.”
“888 players around the globe can now enjoy our games, as well as our unique player engagement tools like in-game tournaments and must-win jackpots,” Schwarz added. Skywind Group has a particularly strong presence in Europe. “Earlier this year, we acquired licenses in Spain, UK, Malta, Alderney, Romania, and recently in Gibraltar and certified our content also in Sweden, Denmark, Portugal, and Italy,” Schwarz further said.
888 Senior Vice President of B2C Guy Cohen has expressed excitement about the new partnership with Skywind, saying: “Skywind offers game-changing solutions for our players. We’re proud to have this fully-licensed gaming provider deliver its exceptional range of products to our players across multiple jurisdictions. Their slots, table, jackpot, and arcade games will be a big hit with our players. We welcome them on board!”
Founded seven years ago, Skywind Group had a busy year in 2019, with all the licenses and certifications they managed to acquire, and this new deal with 888. With certification from 11 jurisdictions and over 50 progressive jackpots, 888Casino has been equally busy. Their games are now fully supported on over 40 gaming devices across major gamlbing groups, including GVC Holdings, Kindred Group, PokerStars, and Videoslots.
Earlier this month, Skywind has also announced a partnership with Iforium, a company that provides solutions for the online gambling industry. The deal will have Skywind integrating their content into Iforium’s Gameflex aggregation platform. As a result of this particular partnership, Skywind’s slots and arcade games could be added to the thousands of games that are already available on Iforium’s content aggregator. The deal also means Skywind will now have access to a good number of online gambling operators.
Another partnership that Skywind entered into in 2019 is with EveryMatrix, and this deal has them integrating their range of game titles into the latter’s CasinoEngine content aggregator.
