GrooveGaming scores a goal with Goalbet
The Rapidly-growing aggregator GrooveGaming has scored a hattrick by signing a comprehensive content supply deal with Goalbet that involves all of Groovegaming’s portfolio. The deal sees GrooveGaming’s diverse portfolio being added to Goalbet’s stable of brands.
Created with the aim of easy and fast content delivery for the igaming industry, GrooveGaming has frequently hit the headlines over the past couple of years as the aggregator of choice for a host of big industry names including EveryMatrix, iGP, Digitain, ALEA and Quickfire, amongst others.
GrooveGaming’s powerful platform includes over 2500 casino games as well as a wealth of aggregated content ranging from slots, online casino and live casino, to poker and table games, that operators can access via easy integration to drive player engagement and revenue.
