The Office for Health Improvement and Disparities has called on the government to acknowledge harmful gambling as a public health issue after publishing its long-awaited evidence-based review of gambling harms.

Push Gaming is looking to “continue gaining momentum in this important jurisdiction” after the online casino content developer teamed-up with Lindar Media’s MrQ igaming brand.

This will see the former extend its footprint in the regulated UK market, with the operator set to gain an online slots suite that includes titles such as Space Stacks, Deadly 5, Razor Shark and Fat Rabbit.

A spokesperson for MrQ said of the alliance: “Push Gaming’s high-quality titles have a long history of being slot enthusiast go-to for both entertainment and engagement.

“We are excited to be welcoming the provider onto our platform, they will be delivering recent hits like Retro Tapes and popular titles such as Jammin’ Jars to our players and in turn bolstering our slot offering.”

Following this latest partnership in the “the largest igaming market in Europe,” Push Gaming is aiming to follow-up this, and a string of past commercial tie-ups, by continuing to make progress on the group’s global expansion strategy.

Fiona Hickey, Director of New Business and Markets at Push Gaming added: “We are pleased to be working with MrQ having secured this latest partnership.

“Our fan favourite titles continue to be extremely popular with players within the UK and the wider European marketplace and we are thrilled to continue gaining momentum in this important jurisdiction.”

Last month, Push Gaming’s extra-terrestrial escapade stole the show on SlotBeats after Space Stacks, which sees players place bets as they guess what symbols will reach for the stars, claimed the Slot of the Week title.
