Supplier’s games set to go live in New Jersey in early 2019

 

Specialist slots developer Lightning Box has agreed to supply its content to online operators in North America via an expanded deal with SG Digital.

The Sydney-based supplier’s popular games will go live in New Jersey in an initial roll-out early in 2019.

Among the titles that will be made available to mobile and desktop players will be Jackaroo Jack, Respin Rhino, Astro Cat, and the forthcoming Stellar Jackpot Silver Lion.

Managing Director and Co-Founder of Lightning Box, Peter Causley, said: “This partnership with SG Digital will allow us to build on our already strong U.S. land-based footprint with new exposure to players in online casino, both in New Jersey and up into Canada.

“This will kick-start a mutually beneficial commercial relationship in the coming months as we expand on our content provision. It will also hopefully provide the springboard for further roll-outs as and when more U.S. states regulate. SG Digital are perfectly positioned to help us expand our market presence in North America.”

Dylan Slaney, SVP Gaming of SG Digital, said: “Lightning Box’s gaming content is a proven performer for us in online casino in Europe, and we look forward to working together with them in North America as well.

“This deal is a great reflection on the Global opportunities we can offer to our content partners. Adding their fresh, quality games will help us provide our customers with more varied content to entertain and engage their online customers.”

In addition, they are active in the U.S. land-based casino market, enjoying successful commercial relationships with Incredible Technologies and Everi.
