Top Developers and Casinos expand their enterprises

It has been a pretty busy week for several major casino software developers, and online casinos. In the general lull between Halloween and Christmas – two notoriously busy times for the casino industry – developers and casinos alike have been busy expanding their enterprises. Everybody’s on the move, it seems, and here are a few of the bigger highlights from the week.

Merkur Games

Merkur Games certainly isn’t the biggest or the best developer of online casino games. This very small casino software developer may be about to expand its reputation, though, now that it has lured a particularly big fish to its party. This week, Energy Casino decided to add Merkur Games to their gaming portfolio. The deal was done through Edict Gaming (GmbH) who control the company’s online assets. Merkur Games have a fairly impressive resume of land-based slots, but the move to the online casino world has been hard on them. This new deal could spice things up a bit.

Red Tiger Gaming

Merkur wasn’t the only amateur doing deals this week. Red Tiger Gaming – another one of the online casino software development world’s smaller fishes – also signed a major deal. They have managed to join forces with Video Slots Casino. The famous casino already has games from more developers than any other casino site, so it shouldn’t come as a total surprise that a deal has been brokered here. Red Tiger’s arsenal includes such games as Lucky Wizard, Five Star, and Blue Diamond, and all should be available to play for casino revellers at that site from this week onwards.

Yggdrasil Gaming

Yggdrasil Gaming are on a new business venture of their own this week. Rumours are rife that the Scandinavian casino software developer is set to create a parent company. There are a number of reasons why this might interest Yggdrasil, but the normal procedure is to do so, so that the company can explore other avenues without damaging their brand. Yggdrasil has put a lot of work into their reputation, which has steadily been growing over the last few years. The move would be smart, and leave them free to explore other gambling ventures. We’re not sure what Yggdrasil has up their sleeve yet, but rumours are abound that they could break into other gaming genres, having focused mainly on slot machines up until now.

New slots aplenty

A number of new slots have also been launched this week. Blueprint Gaming have unveiled their Heroes of Spin slot, whilst NextGen Gaming’s Justice League and Sci Fi Bounty Hunter slots were also launched. Cleopatra Plus was also unveiled by IGT recently, whilst Paranormal Activity was unveiled by iSoftBet. Playtech fans will also rejoice this week, after Paddy Power Casino launched their latest slot, Miss Fortune.

Even though it is supposed to be a quiet time in the online casino, it seems that nobody wants to rest on their laurels. Everybody wants to keep cracking on, in one what could be destined to be one of the busiest Novembers for new slots and software development in many years.
