Galaxy Gaming has announced its latest digital expansion, after detailing an agreement to gain the rights to the portfolio of High Variance Games.

The transaction comes after the group revealed that its igaming segment continued to counter land-based losses earlier in the year, with Galaxy Gaming calling online casino one of its “major growth areas going forward”.

“With our focus on innovative, omnichannel content, Jeff’s games are a natural fit. They’re unique, exciting games that add to the breadth of our portfolio,” explained Steve Cvetkoski, Galaxy Gaming’s director of product development

“Super Blackjack and Super Texas Hold’em, in particular, really heighten the most exciting parts of blackjack and poker by offering unique mechanisms, multiple betting rounds, and opportunities to raise. 

“Players can gamble and be aggressive, but with a house edge that will keep them in action longer. That’s the case with all of these games and a big reason why we’re so excited to get them into the land-based and digital spaces quickly.

“We expect high action while maximising a player’s ‘time on device’ – certainly a real win-win for both players and operators.”

The acquisition of the High Variance Games portfolio includes a number of titles, such as Super Blackjack, Super Texas Hold’em, Super Pai Gow, Three Card Stud Triple Draw, and Super Omaha Poker.

“Galaxy Gaming has the distribution network I was looking for in a partner and an impressive, forward-thinking management team,” said Jeff Hwang, President and CEO of High Variance Games. “I see an organisation with a ton of upside.”

Todd Cravens, Galaxy Gaming’s president and CEO, added:: “We’re are thrilled to work with Jeff Hwang to add these new titles to our content portfolio and prime membership catalog. 

“What excites us about these new games is that we believe they will resonate with casino players and add even more diversity and strength to our catalog of world-famous titles.”
