Lightning Box games heading for Penn Interactive social casino brands

Sydney, Australia-based slots developer Lightning Box is to supply content to Penn Interactive Ventures, the online real-money gaming and social casino subsidiary of Penn National Gaming.

The supplier’s popular games will initially go live on Penn social casino apps Viva Slots, Hollywood Casino and Big Bonus Slots. Chilli Gold will be the first title to go live in Q3 2018, with titles including Silver Lion, Dolphin Gold and Respin Rhinos to follow.

Peter Causley, managing director and co-founder of Lightning Box, said Penn National Gaming’s expected acquisition of Pinnacle Entertainment would allow both parties to benefit from the potential to cross-sell across an increased customer base.

“This partnership with Penn Interactive will allow us to build on our already strong US footprint with greater penetration in the online social casino space,” he said.

“Utilising their large player profile across numerous social and brick-and-mortar casino brands, we expect to form a highly profitable, mutually beneficial relationship in the coming months as we expand on our content provision.”

Chris Sheffield, managing director at Penn Interactive Ventures and SVP at Penn National Gaming, added: “Lightning Box’s gaming content is proven across real-money and social gaming platforms and, with its already established US credentials, we look forward to working together for the foreseeable future.

“Adding their new, quality content will help us build on our already impressive customer base.”
