Hall of Fame NFL quarterback Dan Marino has teamed-up with Pixiu Gaming in a partnership that will see the former Miami Dolphin be featured in a series of slot games.
The developer will donate five per cent of its profits from the games to support the work done by the Dan Marino Foundation in empowering individuals with autism, and other developmental challenges, to fulfil their potential and build successful careers.
Tony Plaskow, Pixiu Gaming, explained: “As a huge NFL fan, it is an honour to announce this exciting collaboration. Dan, and his team, are fully aligned with Pixiu’s focus on creating meaningful change for underprivileged and challenged children.
“We pride ourselves on working with Canadian Provincial governments for the benefit of their communities and can’t wait to release the first Marino titles into Canada and US States next year”
In a partnership initiated and brokered by Creation iGaming, Pixiu plans to launch a variety of games featuring Marino’s brand into the regulated Canadian and US markets from Q2 2023.
Phil Canavan, Commercial Director of Creation iGaming, noted: “It is rare to bring two organisations together who are so closely aligned in their outlook, it has been a genuine pleasure working with both parties. We are thrilled to be a part of the team and cannot wait to see the partnership come to life”.
Marino is widely recognised as one of the greatest NFL quarterbacks of all time. At his retirement in 2000 he held more than 40 NFL single-season and career passing records, including most completions (4,967), most passing yards (61,361), and most touchdown passes (420).
“We were very impressed with Pixiu’s focus on the same core values we have. We welcome their generous offer to donate to my Foundation, and are excited to see the positive impact we can achieve from the partnership,” Marino stated.
