Realistic Games has announced a content partnership with Microgaming.
The software provider, which is known for games such as Clock Work Mice and Black Ice, announced the partnership this week, revealing that it will be providing a selection of its games to Microgaming’s Quickfire platform.
According to the report, the studio will be launching 40 slot titles on the platform including Super Graphics Upside Down, Six Appeal and 8th Wonder. What’s more, a small selection of table games will be added to the platform in the upcoming months.
Under the agreement, Realistic Games as agreed to provide Microgaming with one new game a quarter with an exclusivity period of three months before launching elsewhere.
The agreement will expand on Realistic Games’ player base as Microgaming currently operates in other 20 regulated markets across the world. It will also enhance Microgaming’s game offerings, giving players a wider selection of games to select from.
Realistic Games’ Commercial Director Robert Lee said in a statement: “It’s fantastic to see this agreement go live and we’re looking forward to providing Microgaming’s customers with exclusive access to our original content.
“Launching with Quickfire, a truly market-leading platform, will open the door to opportunities in new markets and increase our brand visibility with operators.”
James Buchanan, Microgaming’s Director of Global Operations, added: “Since signing with Realistic we have been eagerly anticipating the launch date and are now thrilled to see its slot games live on our platform. We strive to provide our customers with nothing less than the highest-quality content.
“Judging by the quick success of Realistic’s slot titles, we are confident that the future launch of its table games and exclusive releases will further enhance our portfolio.”
The news comes just weeks after Microgaming announced the closure of its Microgaming Poker Network (MPN). According to the software provider, it will be closing its MPN sometime in 2020.
Microgaming revealed it made the decision following an internal review of its software supplier’s product portfolio and strategy. However, the firm reassured players that all current and upcoming promotions, games and tournaments will remain available until the service’s official closure.
MPN has operated for more than 16 years and Microgaming was reluctant to share more details about its closure in its official announcement. However, the firm has openly stated that more details of the closure will be shared in upcoming weeks.
Alongside this, Microgaming has continued to partner with independent studios for exclusive slots. Some of the recent studios Microgaming has partnered with include GameBurger Studios, All41 Studios and many more.
