Scientific Games has added to its network of exclusive North American distribution deals, with White Hat Studios following in the footsteps of Design Works Gaming and Hacksaw Gaming.
The four year content aggregation agreement with White Hat Studios, the US focused igaming creation division of White Hat Gaming, serves as a further boost to the OpenGaming platform.
The partnership will see the studios’ content made available in Michigan, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia beginning in 2022, with more state launches expected to follow as igaming legislation accelerates in the US.
“When we originally came up with the idea of forming White Hat Studios specifically to cater for the booming US market, we knew that selecting the right aggregation platform would be vital to our chances of making an immediate impact,” explained Andy Whitworth, chief commercial officer at White Hat Gaming.
“We firmly believe that we could not have chosen better than OpenGaming, given its unrivalled distribution network and scalability, which are both of paramount importance as the US market continues to grow. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with Scientific Games and OpenGaming.”
Through OpenGaming, operators will gain access to titles such as Ted, Almighty Buffalo Megaways and Eye of the Dead as well as land-based inspired igaming content from Merkur Gaming and Reel Time Gaming and Lucksome.
Furthermore, as part of the agreement games that feature Jackpot Royale, a progressive jackpot system, will also be made available through the platform.
“As soon as we heard about the launch of White Hat Studios, we knew there was a huge opportunity for us to combine forces,” commented Steve Mayes, partnership director at Scientific Games.
“This is a landmark deal for both parties and will provide our US operators with access to a fantastic suite of slots, table games and jackpots. It’s a perfect synergy of content, scale and innovation.”
