BB Games become the first developer to join the exciting new venture

Blueprint Gaming is ramping up its efforts to bring a new wave of innovation to the global gaming industry with the launch of a new third-party developer programme.

The enterprising new initiative, which allows independent game studios the opportunity of releasing their content through Blueprint’s widely accepted RGS platform, opens the door to the highly competitive marketplace and allows them to showcase their ground-breaking new features to a much wider audience through Blueprint’s extensive operator and player network.

Slots designer BB Games is the first company taking advantage of the programme and the opportunity to launch their games through Blueprint to a brand-new audience. The collaboration will see BB’s exciting new content added to Blueprint’s portfolio, extending the offering currently available to their operating partners. In conjunction, BB Games and Blueprint will join forces to create new slot titles for the growing marketplace.

The launch of the new programme follows Blueprint’s recent growth strategy and the acquisitions of Livewire and Project. These additions to the UK based game studio’s growing team of talented, industry experienced individuals has seen its own in-house design and development capabilities boosted significantly.

Blueprint is looking to drive expansion across the industry by inviting more studios within the online and retail space to put forward their concepts.

Sior Walbyoff, Head of Business Development at Blueprint Gaming, said: “This is a really exciting new programme that will grant independent studios a huge opportunity to cut through the noise and have their content accessible to operators across the globe through our RGS.

“We’re delighted to have BB Games on board and are looking forward to working with the team to develop fun and engaging slots that incorporate features never seen before.”

Jason Bradbury, BB Games CEO, added: “To be given the chance to partner up with a supplier as renowned as Blueprint is testament to the innovation and passion that goes into every game idea we have at BB Games.

“I think the market will be pleasantly surprised with the inventive nature of this collaboration when our first game is released later this year.”

According to an annual report on gaming compiled by industry association Cejuego with the University Carlos III of Madrid, gambling revenue in Spain has dropped by 50% year-on-year.

The report shows gross revenue for all products and channels was €4.35bn for the period up until the end of October, down 50% compared to the same ten months in 2019.

Of the revenue reported so far this year, private companies generated €2.45bn while the state-owned Organización Nacional de Ciegos Españoles (ONCE) and Sociedad Estatal Loterías y Apuestas del Estado (SELAE) generated €1.9bn.

“Despite the fact the drop in income from gaming companies is higher than that recorded in other sectors such as fashion, automobiles or in-store sales in department stores, we have managed to reduce ERTES [temporary layoffs or reductions in hours] to 15 per cent of the workforce, so that 85 per cent of employees in the sector are working at the moment,” Alejandro Landaluce, CEO of Cejuegos, said.
