Online slots developer and aggregator Games Inc has announced a new strategic partnership with Jade Rabbit Studio that is to see titles built into the former’s reach platform.

This follows Games Inc recently being awarded a recognition notice licence by the Malta Gaming Authority and a host B2B licence from the UK Gambling Commission. 

It is said that both are to enable the reach platform to bring its range of slots to more players through a greater range of partnerships.

Jason O’Shea, commercial director of Games Inc, said: “Some of the most innovative and interesting content in the online gaming space is being created by smaller ‘boutique’ studios and start-ups who don’t feel like they need to play by the rules and are more willing to experiment. 

“It may be a young company, but Jade Rabbit Studios has that totally fresh approach to games development that we really value. We believe JRS’s eye-catching content is a worthy addition to our growing portfolio.”

Malta-based Jade Rabbit, established last year, is targeting the release of 12 games per year through 2020 and beyond. Red Hot Reels is set to be launched in February.

Harry Biring, director at Jade Rabbit Studio, stated: “We’re excited to be part of the awesome Reach platform and to be jostling for position with some of the biggest names in the industry. 

“We believe our games have what it takes to stand out from the crowd, and we’re delighted they will soon reach many more slots players thanks to the Games Inc deal.”

Last month developer Plank Gaming is striving to take its portfolio of titles to a wider audience after entering into a new strategic partnership alongside Games Inc.

Plank, which stresses a focus on the theme, design and maths aspects of an online slot, is to also see its growing suite of games built onto the Games Inc reach platform.
