Game aggregator SOFTSWISS has announced a partnership with developer Spadegaming.
Under the partnership, Spadegaming’s entire catalogue of casino content has been integrated into SOFTSWISS’ aggregator platform, including popular titles like Crazy Bomber, Fiery Sevens, Rise Of Werewolves, and numerous other titles too.
Spadegaming’s entire library of games will now be made available with SOFTSWISS White Label and Game Aggregator clients that hold Curacao and MGA licenses.
Nikita Keino, the Partner Managers Team Lead at SOFTSWISS, said of the partnership to FocusGN: “The SOFTSWISS Game Aggregator is expanding rapidly and this month we’re thrilled to welcome Spadegaming studio into our gaming family.
“Now this provider will join our vast variety of game developers, being able to provide their great content to all of our current and future White Label and Game Aggregator clients.”
Danny Vincent, the General Manager at Spadegaming, added: “We’re excited and grateful to be integrating with the SOFTSWISS Game Aggregator and are looking forward to our exciting gaming adventure with such a strong iGaming market player to begin.
“With SOFTSWISS, we are ready to expand our reach to the gaming industry into newer markets. With our distinctive offerings and exceptional series of products, we’re sure we’ll be able to add some new innovative content to the table and hope for great cooperation ahead.”
Spadegaming has been around since 2013 and has developed and released a slew of highly popular casino games, all of which support all kinds of mobile devices. The studio releases new content every month and offers operators free spins, tournaments, and other bonus tools too.
The above news comes as the SOFTSWISS game aggregator has added a new game type to its platform.
SOFTSWISS’ game aggregation platform currently includes video slots, jackpots, live casino titles, lotteries, classic table games, virtual sports, casual games, and dice titles, but it is now adding crash gambling to its catalogue.
As reported by European Gaming, crash gambling content is different to most other gambling games as its mechanics are time-based. The games usually see players place a bet and watch the bet multiply in the form of a rising line graph, requiring them to cash out before the line crashes and players lose their bet.
The addition of crash gambling content is part of SOFTSWISS’ goal to diversify its aggregation platform, and the new games will all be made available with SOFTSWISS-partnered clients.
Tatyana Kaminskaya, the Game Aggregator Team Lead at SOFTSWISS, said in a statement: “Crash gambling games are extremely popular at the moment and we’re excited to be starting to provide them to the players.
“Given the number of titles and the game types we offer today, we can confidently say that the SOFTSWISS Game Aggregator provides one of the most diverse portfolios on the market. And all of this is coupled with reliable client service and technical support.”
The above news also comes after Blueprint Gaming announced a content agreement with SOFTSWISS under which all of the studio’s games were made available with the aggregation platform and released with SOFTSWISS’ partnered Game Aggregator and White Hat clients, boosting Blueprint’s player reach worldwide.
Live streaming platform Twitch has updated its policies to ban gambling advertisements and all links, according to PC Gamer.
The social platform updated its content creator policies, adding a new “Restriction on Gambling Related Links” policy, which bans users from sharing referral codes and promotional links to gambling websites.
Twitch’s new policy reads: “To prevent harm and scams created by questionable gambling services that sponsor content on Twitch, we will prohibit sharing links and/or referral codes to sites that offer slots, roulette, or dice games.
“We will continue to monitor gambling-related content and update our approach as needed. To give you time to remove this content from your channel, enforcement will be delayed until August 17, 2021.”
The new policy comes after the Amazon-owned platform was criticised for failing to regulate the promotion of gambling content by streamers with large fan bases, such as Tyler ‘Trainwrecks’ Niknam with over 1.5 million subscribers, including minors.
The move also comes after Twitch was banned in Slovakia for breaching advertising codes by allowing users like dDandis, with over 35,000 subscribers, to stream themselves playing casino games.
Finally, leading gambling operator Betfred has partnered with the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation to launch a sportsbook in the state of Arizona.
According to Focus GN, the retail sportsbook will be built for and open at the new We-Ko-Pa Casino Resort in Arizona, with mobile and online betting to launch soon after under the Betfred brand.
Bernadine Burnette, the President of the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, said in a statement: “The partnership announcement with Betfred Sports marks a new chapter for We-Ko-Pa.
“We are excited about the prospect of sports betting in Arizona, and are thrilled to pursue an event wagering license to allow us to offer sports betting to our retail and digital customers.”
Mark Stebbings, the Betfred Group COO, added: “Arizona is an amazing opportunity for Betfred Sports to continue its expansion in the US after successful launches in Iowa, Colorado, and Pennsylvania.”
The above news comes after Betfred announced that it had extended its sponsorship of the Challenge Cup by two years, remaining as the title sponsor for the Challenge Cup Final, which will take place in May 2022, and the conclusion of the tournament in 2023.
