John Daly

Spearhead Studios has secured an agreement with American professional golfer John Daly for a suite of themed casino games, the first of which is slated to be released later this year.

The EveryMatrix games development studio says that its vision for the series is to create a bridge between sportsbook and casino content, therefore providing operators with an acquisition tool that targets sports fans.

Daly stated: “Sports and igaming share a passion for creative entertainment which I deeply appreciate, so this is a great opportunity for me to endorse both. 

“I’m excited to see how Spearhead Studios turns this game series into reality, and, as a passionate slot player, I can’t wait to take it for a spin.”

Daly turned pro in 1987, before joining the PGA Tour four years later. Among his list of accomplishments are two major victories which came in 1991 at the PGA Championship at Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, Indiana, and the 1995 Open Championship at St Andrews.

Mathias Larsson, managing director at Spearhead Studios, commented: “I am a passionate golfer myself and have followed John Daly since his PGA Championship win in 1991. He is an incredible golf player and a major character on the PGA Tour.

“This will be one of the first branded online casino games with a sports star and the first game with a golf player. It will be a very exciting journey and I’m confident the end result will be amazing.”

Spearhead Studios works with over 100 operators and casino aggregators, with its over 35 titles available in multiple jurisdictions across Europe and Latin America, including the recently added UK market.

The group adds that it boasts “a strong pipeline of new launches”, with 2021 to see Spearhead Studios releasing over 40 games, including video bingo and video poker.
