Platform and aggregator Groove is supporting award-winning Cyprus-based iGaming developer Evoplay, helping to profile the newly obtained MGA Recognition Notice with Groove’s powerful operator cluster.

Evoplay has just been recognised by the prestigious Maltese regulatory body, the Malta Gaming Authority.

Groove is highlighting Evoplay content to operators to ensure that the developer, 95% of which staff are Ukraine-based, remains fully supported despite the international situation, including their 3D/VR slot games and a medley of new content.

Evoplay was shortlisted in the Best Gaming Innovation category at the SBC Awards, Software Rising Star and Mobile Supplier at the EGR Awards, three LoginCasino Awards, and last year Ivan Kravchuk, Evoplay CEO, was awarded with Leader of the Year by SBC.

The iGaming provider develops HTML5 Full HD online games with popular titles such as Dragon’s Tavern, Trip To The Future, Fruit Disco, Atlantis, The Great Conflict, Elven Princesses, Epic Gladiators, Red Cliff, Ace Round, Jewellery Store, Fruitburst, Chinese New Year, Charming Queens, Syndicate, and Candy Dreams.

Probably the best-known title of Evoplay are Dungeon: Immortal Evil, the first RPG-inspired hack and slash slot with this year’s flagship title, Star Guardians, that made the revolution as an industry-first third-person shooter gambling game with manual control and player selection. Evoplay’s total portfolio contains over 160 slots, table, and instant games.

This latest arrangement with Evoplay is a direct demonstration of how Groove’s content portfolio is highly differentiated and capable of responding to global market events. Groove’s powerful platform includes thousands of casino games as well as a wealth of aggregated content ranging from slots, sportsbook, online casino and live casino, to poker and table games, that operators can access via easy integration to drive player engagement and revenue.

Chief Commercial Officer at Evoplay, Vladimir Malakchi, commented: “Delivering content for Groove’s operator cluster allowed us to boost access to our games as well as their overall performance. Being with a top platform like Groove gives us a sense of sustainability and it’s good to know that we have this kind of backing.”

Groove COO Yahale Meltzer said: “Originally we welcomed Evoplay to our platform with some of the most innovative games in the global iGaming market and the awards that they have gathered in such a short space of time are definitely well deserved. The MGA Recognition Notice is the cherry on the cake for a solid suite of games coming out from the developer, and we look forward to seeing further increased uptake on their titles.”
