Raw iGaming has closed a deal to acquire Leander Games, a move the company hopes will expand its SuperSlice games brand and introduce a new business area in aggregation.
This is the company’s first acquisition. Raw hopes gaining these assets will help its products reach Leander’s customer base throughout South America as well as in Europe.
Raw is currently seeking out other opportunities for expansion.
Raw CEO Tom Wood said: “This is an amazing opportunity to bring together our SuperSlice innovation with one of the best distribution platforms in the industry along, with access to the studio that is known for great titles like Ave Caesar and Alibaba and the Forty Thieves.
“After meeting with Leander management, we felt the immediate cultural connection, identified their deep skillset in platform and distribution, as well as the clear synergies we both bring in game development making Raw a new force to reckon within content and game distribution.”
Leander CEO Steven Matsell commented: “We are very excited to become a part of the Raw family and start the next chapter in Leander by marrying Raw’s innovative vision with our market-leading platform as well as the integration of the game teams to deliver even more innovative, ground-breaking content.”
Matsell went on to add that the company hopes the collaboration will help combat industry monotony.
“This strengthens our dedication to our customers and partners, offering new games and platform innovations which are sure to shake up the market,” he said. “We look forward to being a part of Raw and supporting the fight against industry monotony. We welcome new operators and studios that are ready to join as well.”
