Light & Wonder has secured an agreement with independent games studio Rogue to leverage its online casino content to boost its OpenGaming platform.
Under the agreement, Light & Wonder clients will be able to access Rogue’s titles which utilize game mechanics including Fusion Reels and Tsunami Reels.
Using Playzido technology, Rogue titles will be integrated into the OpenGaming content aggregation platform during the second half of this year. The Playzido technology offers the firm a chance to tailor all content to a local market.
John Parsonage, CCO at Rogue, said: “This agreement has been driven by our commitment to providing games with mechanics that stand out from the crowd and which present players with a fresh and exciting experience.
“Light and Wonder’s OpenGaming platform provides us with instant and extensive global distribution to allow us to deliver our games to new operators in new markets. We look forward to players all over the world interacting with our content.”
This marks another step for Light & Wonder in establishing itself as one of the leading gaming companies in the US following the sale of its lottery and sports betting business.
2022 marked a transformative year for the firm, which went through a rebrand and dramatically bolstered its balance sheet by raising over $6bn through divestitures.
Steve Mayes, Digital Partnerships Director at Light & Wonder, added: “We greatly admire Rogue’s dedication to providing some of the most unique and exciting games coming into the market and the rapid progress that the studio has made in such a short space of time.
We are confident that this latest agreement will further enhance the reputation of OpenGaming for delivering a wide variety of casino entertainment designed to engage with audiences across the world.”
“It further demonstrates the power of our development platform in helping to quickly bring to market the most dynamic content available from the industry’s true innovators.”
