Skillzzgaming hits the state of New Jersey after its content goes live through operator BetMGM via Pariplay’s Fusion platform.
Hailing the launch as a “significant milestone”, the entry into the US for Skillzzgaming also marks the debut of Pariplay’s third-party content, through its Ignite programme, becoming available to US players.
The current deal between Pariplay and BetMGM will cover offerings across all markets that Pariplay are licensed in, as well as exclusivity in New Jersey until the end of 2023.
Eran Sharar, CEO at Skillzzgaming, said: “Finally launching in the US is a fantastic achievement for us and BetMGM is a major player in the space so we couldn’t be happier.
“Through the Ignite programme, we have been able to propel our development process and going live in the lucrative US market is a highlight in the studio’s journey so far.”
BetMGM is the exclusive sports betting partner for MGM Resorts nationwide, both online and in MGM’s physical casinos, operating three poker, three casino, and two sports sites.
The deal will see Skillzzgaming’s content, which includes the studio’s Fruit Blast that comes with eight bonus rounds, become accessible to partners solely through the Fusion platform.
Shivan Patel, Commercial Director at Pariplay, added: “It is a proud moment for us and for Skillzzgaming to be able to launch their content in the US with such a prestigious operator as BetMGM.
“As an Ignite partner, it is especially satisfying that we have been able to make Skillzzgaming our first third-party launch through Fusion in this market. It is a key achievement and the start of what we see as an epic growth journey.”
Pariplay’s Fusion offering consists of over 14,000 games from over 80 suppliers, as well as a comprehensive suite of back-office conversion and retention tools that enhance player value.
