LeoVegas & PokerStars provide Ontarian entry for Thunderkick


LeoVegas and PokerStars have both taken Thunderkick’s in-house content live in Ontario to provide the slot studio its debut in the province. 

Hailing the move as an “important market” in the firm’s evolution, the partnership will see a selection of Thunderkick’s slot titles taken live on both LeoVegas and PokerStars’ Ontarian online casino platforms. 

Svante Sahlström, Chief Commercial Officer at Thunderkick, stated: “Ontario is one of the most significant strategic moves for us this year, and I think we’ll look back on it as an important marker in the company’s development.

“Partnering with two prominent brands in PokerStars and LeoVegas highlights our drive to deliver on our long-term strategic goals in the continent as we continue to work towards providing the ultimate player experience.”

While citing Ontario as a ‘key focus’ alongside Italy, Portugal, and its homeland of Sweden, these deals will allow Thunderkick to enhance the visibility of its slot content in the North American market. 

PokerStars and LeoVegas players will benefit from the deal by gaining access to slots such as 2 Bolts of Thunder, Xterminate, Midas Golden Touch 2, Beat the Beast: Dragon’s Wrath and Midas Golden Touch Reborn. 

These games will become accessible within one month of the partnerships’ announcements. 

Sahlström added: “The market entry is the latest step in Thunderkick’s progressive worldwide expansion goals, proving that independent slots studios can operate on a global scale and develop a player base across continents by prioritising high-quality games.”

“There is a huge amount of unlocked potential in North America, and as more Canadian provinces and US states become regulated, there is a fantastic opportunity for Thunderkick to expand further.”
