Blueprint commits to Light & Wonder’s OpenGaming via four-year extension

Light & Wonder has struck a “significant long-term” extension with Blueprint Gaming that will ensure that the igaming developer’s slots suite remains integrated with the OpenGaming aggregation platform.

The four year “major long-term deal” will see the supplier’s existing portfolio of titles, as well as future releases, become available to the group’s operator network in what L&W noted “represents another step” in strengthening the OpenGaming roster.

Matt Cole, Managing Director of Blueprint Gaming, said: “Light & Wonder has served as a crucial partner of ours for several years, with its OpenGaming platform providing us with extended opportunities to deliver our content to operators and players across multiple markets.

“With this new agreement in place, we are in a strong position to remain at the focal point of the world’s biggest casino brands, with our games proven to provide exceptional engagement rates.”

Among the Blueprint offerings, which are said to be “among the best performers on the OpenGaming platform,” are games based on film and TV shows, including The Goonies, Deal or no Deal and Rick and Morty, while the supplier’s wider content suite includes titles such as Eye of Horus and Fishin’ Frenzy.

In addition, through Blueprint’s progressive jackpot system, Jackpot King, players across the globe will have the potential to win prizes off any spin.

“Blueprint Gaming’s reputation within the industry is second to none, with its games consistently performing at the highest levels within the OpenGaming platform,” added Steve Mayes, Digital Partnerships Director at Light & Wonder. 

“Our operator partners will be absolutely delighted with this extended partnership. Such a move also builds on our promise to deliver worlds of new play to customers across the globe.”

Earlier this week, Matt Wilson was confirmed as President and Chief Executive Officer of Light & Wonder, as well as a member of the company’s board, effective immediately.

This came after he occupied the position of Interim CEO from August 2022 as part of a leadership transition following the departure of Barry Cottle.
