RAW iGaming seeking casual revolution after Spigo asset acquisition

Raw iGaming is looking to “evolve the casual game market” after the development studio purchased the entire asset portfolio of Spigo from Lady Luck Games.

The transaction, which comprises casual games, customers and platform, is intended to clear the path for the company to “expand into another commoditised gaming space”.

The addition of a portfolio that represents an extension beyond the slots space is further hailed as a “natural step” for the company.

Tom Wood, RAW iGaming’s CEO, said: “This is another step in our company’s evolution to provide premium products to every channel of the gaming industry.

“Just as in the commoditisation of slot games, within the casual games space we see the same never-ending sea of sameness. Through the RAW team’s innovative game design and unique creativity, we hope to change that just as we are doing in the slots market.”

In addition to detailing the purchase, RAW has also shared a vision of creating “innovative games that combat industry monotony and bring new ideas and gameplay to the market”.

Spigo develops premium casual games, such as Yatzy, Backgammon, Solitaire, Match 3 and slot games, as well as bespoke solutions.

“I look forward to seeing what the amazing RAW team can create and how we can evolve the casual game market together over the coming years,” Wood added.

In September 2021, Swedish slots developer Lady Luck signed a letter of intent to acquire fellow provider Spigo ApS’s operations in Denmark.

The deal included 27 of the group’s casino games and eight customer integrations, including two with Danske Spil’s B2C brands, Spillehjørnet and Tivoli Casino.
