Online gaming supplier Microgaming had added further depth to its roster of exclusive studios, after striking a supply deal with start-up Gong Gaming Technologies.

The company, which asserts a focus on the “creation of sensational, premium entertainment products,” has previously collaborated with Microgaming on the creation of two new games, the swashbuckling Pirate’s Quest and ghoulish Skulls Heap.

“It’s great to see a new studio bringing multiple games to the market so quickly, and we’re thrilled to welcome Gong to our platform,” noted Andrew Booth, Microgaming director of games.

“With a maths-first logic, and some great creations to their name already, Gong are actively pursuing innovative content. We believe they have the potential to deliver even more sophisticated gaming technology, wrapped up with strong artwork, into the future.”

Gong’s first exclusive release under the new deal, Inferno Gladiator, is available via the Microgaming igaming platform. Set in a fiery colosseum, the high-volatility Roman-themed slot comes complete with free spins and sticky wilds.

Dima Farbman, co-founder and CEO at Gong Gaming Technologies, said: “We at Gong are honoured and excited to collaborate with Microgaming. Our main goal is to create high-quality, entertaining and engaging games, and we’re constantly looking to improve and innovate. 

“We were really pleased with the feedback we received for our two recent Microgaming releases, Pirate’s Quest and Skulls Heap, and we can’t wait to take our future content to the next level alongside Microgaming.”
