Leander Games has signed an ‘exclusive game licensing deal’ with The Stars Group, owner of Pokerstars Casino, regarding its Ave Caesar game.

The game, which is described as ‘a comic romp through Ancient Rome,’ was under development for 14 months, with it now to be brought to the online casino market for the first time.  

Bo Wänghammar, Managing Director of PokerStars Casino, said: “We are determined to make PokerStars Casino’s offering stand out further and Ave Caesar will be another factor that helps us do just that. It is a good opportunity to showcase a great game and offer our customers something exclusively new. We are confident Ave Caesar will be a big hit.”

The five reel slot includes three base game modifiers, in addition to a pick me up bonus where Caesar himself can show favour via a gamble feature allowing the ability to win instant cash.

Steven Matsell, Chief Executive Officer at Leander Games, commented: “We have added new, top talent to our internal game’s development team, external consultants specialising in game content for specific regions and also included road testing by some serious slot players.

“We are also focusing on four big game launches per year because, in today’s market, it’s about quality not quantity. We are extremely confident in the game we have produced, it is top-notch.”

Adding: “We won the The Stars Group RFP in December 2013 and were the first supplier to integrate and distribute games to PokerStars Casino. We have supplied games from 16 of our game partners and worked closely with The Stars Group to develop jackpots and upcoming bonus tools and features.

“We are extremely proud of our history with The Stars Group and with the deepening relationship. We are determined to provide the most stable platform and best-of-breed content, both from our own in-house team and from our game developer partners.”
