This will help Wazdan's expansion goal within North America.

The casino game developer, Wazdan, has announced its latest collaboration, partnering with operator, Tipico, to help increase its footprint within New Jersey. 

Light & Wonder’s iGaming ecosystem will be integrated in order to make this partnership happen, as Wazdan looks to continue its growth within North America, with Tipico becoming the third operator in New Jersey to take on Wazdan’s game titles, after Rush Street Interactive and DraftKings. 

Players on Tipico’s platform in the Garden State will now have access to Wazdan titles such as 9 Coins, Sun of Fortune, Hot Slot: Mystery Jackpot Joker and Magic Spins.  

Chief Commercial Officer, at Wazdan, Andrzej Hyla, gave his thoughts, “We’re thrilled to be further boosting our presence in New Jersey with Tipico, which is a hugely exciting brand in the state. 

“Our partnership with Light & Wonder has been a vital part of our growth in North America, and we’re confident that this will be another boost to all parties.” 

A spokesperson at Tipico New Jersey, added, “Wazdan’s games have proven time and again to be popular with players in New Jersey, so we’re naturally delighted to be able to offer them to our customers. 

“With bold themes, engaging genres, and an array of engagement tools that are clear fan favorites, we’re very happy to be offering these and look forward to our players' reactions.” 

This continues a positive year for Wazdan, which has announced a number of key partnerships in 2023, including with Caesars Sportsbook & Casino, Bally’s Interactive and SCCG Management.
