Hacksaw Gaming: March Round Up – Hot News



Reading Time: 3 minutes


New Releases

Hacksaw Gaming

Dawn of Kings

“We may or may not have been fangirling when we got to meet our latest heroine, Amy Dawn. Hold onto your compasses and join her latest excavation of the treacherous temple of Ancient Kings. Join the Egyptian adventure and put your best boot forward, and oh, don’t forget to bring your torch,” Hacksaw Gaming said.

Bouncy Bombs

“Jiggly jellies so adorable, it would be a shame to eat them. Way down in mystical fruity forest, you’ll find flavours so explosive that you won’t believe your taste buds,” the company said.

Rusty and Curly

“Yeeeehaw, a warm wild west welcome to Dorkville! Our newest duo, Rusty and Curly, are either hanging out with their BFFs Chewy and Crispy or just wreaking absolute havoc. You might even catch them playing town detectives as they attempt to figure out who shot the sheriff,” the company said.

Hacksaw OpenRGS

Barrel Bonanza

“Monkeying around has never been so much fun. In collaboration with Backseat Gaming, watch Kong go krazy for his beloved barrels in this new adventure,” the company said.

Hot News

Provisional Internet Gaming Supplier License in Michigan

“One of our most exciting Hacksaw happenings, we landed a provisional Internet Gaming Supplier Licence in Michigan. Impressively, if we do say so ourselves, this was following two other market entries in the short span of 12 months – New Jersey and West Virginia,” Hacksaw Gaming said.

Touch Down in Serbia with Maxbet

“Launching nearly our entire portfolio on the 1st of March, Maxbet players in Serbia can enjoy Hacksaw’s fan favourites such as 2 Wild 2 Die, Buffalo Stack‘n’Sync, Eye of the Panda, Wanted Dead or a Wild, RIP City, and many many others.”

Comeback in Croatia with Favbet

“Since we made our Croatian debut with Betsson Group in December 2023, local casino enthusiasts had been calling out for more. So we listened! We made a return to the market with Favbet at the beginning of March, going live with smash hits R.I.P. City, Gladiator Legends, and Outlaws Inc.”

Salute Brand New Partnership with Betflag in Italy

“We added to our already impressive selection of Italy based launches by joining forces with Betflag! Notably, Laviero Saganeiti, Casino Project Manager at BetFlag stated that ‘These [Hacksaw] games express the dynamism and engagement we have not seen in the market for some time.’”

Advancing in West Virginia with BetMGM

“Mid month saw a big milestone when we launched our first batch of games with BetMGM West Virginia. Our very own CEO, Marcus Cordes was stocked on this launch and commented that ‘Joining BetMGM on the mission to put Hacksaw Gaming on the map has been an exhilarating experience.’”

Scoring Again in Ontario with DraftKings

“With the month coming to a close, we went for the hatrick and are now live in West Virginia, New Jersey and Ontario. Adding to their expansive collection of over 300 games, DraftKings now is home to Hacksaw favourites Chaos Crew, Mines, Omnom and Boxes.”

Firing Things Up with Betsson in Buenos Aires

“Our partnership with Betsson Group was strengthened once again by adding yet another market to the list – Buenos Aires. Completing our third expansion with Betsson in the last 4 months, we’d say this closed off March quite nicely.”

What Now?

That brings March’s Monthly Roundup to an end, but what about April? “With 4 more game releases and many new partnerships and market expansions on the horizon, we’re keeping our cards close to our chest. So, keep your eyes peeled and alert, because you won’t want to miss what’s coming up next,” the company said.
