Top developer, Red Tiger has announced further European expansion after agreeing to roll out some its most popular online slots with the Swiss Casinos Group.
Swiss Casinos Group is one of Switzerland’s leading operators and owns four land-based venues in Pfäffikon, Schaffhausen, St Gallen and Zurich. The company went live with Red Tiger’s content on Monday.
As part of the deal, Swisscasinos.ch gamers have access to slot titles such as Mega Rise, Dragon’s Fire Megaways and Pirate’s Plenty: Battle for Gold. The games were integrated through the Playtech Open Platform along with Red Tiger’s Smart Spins Bonus management application.
Patrick Mastai, technical and security manager at Swiss Casinos, remarked:
‘Swiss Casinos is well known for providing world class entertainment experiences, and we have no doubt that the addition of Red Tiger’s award-winning slot portfolio will reinforce this reputation.’
Said Red Tiger’s commercial director Chris Looney:
“We are very excited to be live on Swisscasinos.ch and are very confident that our slots will be a hit with its customers. We have a track-record of partnering with all of the key industry players and are already active in Switzerland, so it’s great to have another leading operator like the Swiss Casinos Group on board.”
It’s already been an eventful year for Red Tiger. Back in August, the company launched gaming content in partnership with prestigious land-based operator, Grand Casino Luzern. This was followed by a high-profile deal with famous gambling brand Casino Davos, which agreed to offer Red Tiger’s entire portfolio of games via its website.
These partnerships are part of a wider strategy to improve the brand’s presence in Switzerland’s newly-regulated gambling market. Following a landmark ruling earlier this year by the Eidgenössische Spielbankenkommission, Switzerland’s Federal Gaming Commission, bricks-and-mortar establishments are now permitted to operate online.
As a result, the Switzerland is proving a happy hunting ground for Red Tiger. As Looney mentioned after the Davos deal:
‘The Swiss market is proving to be fertile ground for Red Tiger and our games have become very popular with consumers in a short space of time. We are committed to the market and will be launching more top-quality games on a regular basis.’
Perhaps more significantly, Red Tiger was recently acquired by NetEnt in an all cash deal worth £200 million. As testament to the developer’s growing reputation, the Swedish iGaming giant opted to integrate all of its casino games with the Isle of Man outfit.
They’ll be available on the much anticipated Netent Connect platform which is slated for launch next year.
Needless to say, we’ll keep you posted of any further developments relating to Red Tiger, if and when they arise.
