HungryBear Gaming hails ‘game-changing’ Light & Wonder integration

HungryBear Gaming is basking in a “game-changer for the business” after signing a distribution deal with Light & Wonder that will make the multiplayer Slot Masters title available across the group’s global operator network.

The latter, which has hailed the game as “a true definition of innovation,” has integrated Slot Masters into the OpenGaming platform, therefore making the offering available to “hundreds” of partners.

Robert Procter, VP Game Development at Light and Wonder, said: “We are delighted to be able to announce this partnership between Slot Masters and Light & Wonder. 

“The product is a true definition of innovation and the ability for players to go head-to-head on slots is ground-breaking for this industry. 

“We look forward to being on this journey with Justin and his team at HungryBear and are hugely excited at what the future holds for this one-of-a-kind product.” 

Slot Masters is a free-to-play, three-way, head-to-head slot game, where players affect the outcome of their opponents score by strategically deploying a selection of attack and defensive weapons.

HungryBear Gaming has also updated that it is in the final stages of building the first real money variant of Slot Masters, with a release date to be disclosed before the end of the year.

“This is a game-changer for the business and Slot Masters and we’re delighted to be partnering with one of the leading names in igaming,” stated Justin Chamberlin, founder and CEO of HungryBear Gaming.

“To this point we have been directly integrating the game with individual operators, however with Slot Masters now available on the Light & Wonder platform, this opens the door to an enormous array of global brands who can seamlessly integrate the game and reap the rewards of one of the hottest titles in town.”

Slot Masters is already live with an array of online entities, including Gamesys/Bally brands Virgin, Rainbow Riches Casino, Monopoly Casino, Jackpot Joy, Double Bubble and Megaways casino, as well as Entain’s Foxy Bingo and Ladbrokes. 

Furthermore, HungryBear also noted that the game is also set to launch across numerous other European and global operators in the weeks and months to come, with several brands said to be launching bespoke online and TV campaigns.
