Independent casino games provider High 5 Games has unveiled the latest stage of its ongoing international strategy of expanding its presence across Europe, by opening a new Malta office.

Coming ahead of the firm’s appearance at next week’s SiGMA 2019, the New York-based developer has moved into what it lauds as “a state-of-the-art facility” in Sliema. This is to house various departments including account management, business development and games design and production.

A variety of vacancies are available at the new office space, with H5G looking for a head of compliance, head of fraud and payment, project managers and game engineers.

Creating the new office in “one of the igaming industry’s most established hubs” will allow MGA-licensed H5G to build on its recent momentum of expanding its reach across the European market.

Anthony Singer, CEO of High 5 Games, said: “Opening an office in Malta is a major move for us and further demonstrates the company as a truly global operation. It’s great that we now have a strong presence in one of the world’s most important igaming communities.

“The new space will allow us to work even closely with our existing operator partners who are based in the country, while also opens up the opportunity for us to achieve further business growth in Europe, where we have already exceeded our own expectations this year.”

H5G unveiled its latest slot release earlier this week, with Goldstruck lauded as the firm’s largest release of the year.

Set to be made available across the New York firm’s 200+ operator network from tomorrow, H5G’s “most advanced slot game to date” also represents a further introduction to the newly created tentpole strategy.

Ahead of Golstruck’s impending release CasinoBeats caught up with Singer, CEO of H5G, who explained what sets the new title apart from previous releases and how much of a positive impact the firm’s new strategy is having on games development.
