Livespins has inked a deal with Hub88 as the social online casino looks to push its streaming platform to more than 150 brands across the globe.
The deal between the duo will see operators powered by Hub88 able to offer its players a new category of online casino play through Livespins. This will sit within the casino lobby and offer shared, socially interactive gaming experiences via its live streaming platform.
Ollie Castleman, Head of Hub88, stated: “We are committed to bringing the latest innovations to our operator partners and in Livespins we have a cutting-edge product that provides an entirely new way for players to experience online casino.
“It is engaging, highly entertaining, interactive and just incredibly fun – all things that players now expect from an online casino.”
Livespins has assembled a team of streamers, with players able to watch their streams and get directly involved by betting behind the action across the reels. Players can choose their bet amount and number of spins.
They can also engage by chatting with the streamer and other players throughout, as well as dropping reactions and emojis.
Michael Pedersen, Chief Commercial Officer at Livespins, added: “This is a breakthrough distribution deal for Livespins, making our platform and socially charged player experience available to more than 150 operators around the world.
“The demand for casino and slot streaming is at an all-time high, and with Livespins operators can provide this directly to their players in a responsible and compliant way.
“As the worlds of entertainment and gambling continue to converge, we believe that Livespins will emerge as a casino game category in its own right and it’s great to see that Hub88 shares our vision and is offering this experience to its operators and their players now.”
This announcement comes in the same month where Pedersen sat down with CasinoBeats to reflect on Livespins’ 2022 performance, where he noted that Twitch’s decision was something the firm “saw coming from a long way off” – adding that behaviour of some streamers had been “increasingly out of control” in the build-up to the ban.
