Red Tiger has expanded its European footprint as the online casino games and software developer takes its entire catalogue of slots live with Spanish operator YoCasino.

The supplier, which was absorbed by Evolution in December 2020 under the terms of the group’s NetEnt transaction agreement, is eyeing a widened exposure to the market as a result of the commercial tie-up.

Johan Nordstrom, chief executive officer Malta and chief commercial officer at Evolution, commented: “Red Tiger’s slots have already established a secure foothold in Spain and a partnership with an operator like YoCasino will only broaden our exposure to the market.

“In turn, its players are being provided with excellent content that is entertaining audiences around the world, with plenty more in the pipeline for 2021. We are looking forward to seeing the partnership develop.”

The partnership will see the Red Tiger slots suite, including titles such as Dragon’s Luck, Pirates’ Plenty: Battle for Gold, Dragon’s Fire Megaways and Mystery Reels, become available with the Rank Group-owned brand.

Furthermore, YoCasino will also have access to Red Tiger’s hourly jackpots, which have been designed to improve player acquisition and retention. Red Tiger’s full portfolio is also live with YoBingo.

“Securing Red Tiger’s slots and their thrilling hourly jackpots will provide an excellent boost to our content offering and I’m sure players will enjoy trying out the titles now available,” noted Regan Hobbs, commercial director at Rank International.

Earlier in the year, the Rank Group reported that its Yo branded Spanish bingo and casino business performed strongly in the half of the year to December 31, 2020, with net gaming revenue up 51 per cent to £9.7m (2019: £6.4m).

The company cited a combination of key operational hires; improvements to the overall product offering; successful launch of a casino led brand, YoCasino; and improvements to marketing capabilities and successful addition of new acquisition channels, as main drivers to the growth.
