Rapid expansion plans in North America
Bragg Gaming Group’s acquisition of Spin Games last month has added impetus to the Toronto-based company’s rapid expansion plans in North America by playing a significant role in its entry into the iGaming market in Ontario.
Live in Ontario via BetRivers.ca from Rush Street Interactive
On Wednesday, Bragg announced that his iGaming content was live in Ontario via BetRivers.ca from Rush Street Interactive. The Canadian brand took to Twitter to share the news of the publication, saying it added to its footprint in the region:
Bragg said the launch heralded the first single integration between its technology and Spin’s new acquisition technology. The dual deployment of Bragg’s remote game server technology with Spin content and B2B gaming technology has resulted in five exclusive online titles.
According to a Bragg news release, these five games are now live on RSI’s BetRivers.ca and include: Egyptian Magic A title produced by the giant Chicago-based gaming studio Atomic Slot Lab.
It’s not just empty talk
Bragg completed its acquisition of Spin in June for a pegged cash and stock transaction of approximately $30 million. This gave Bragg the keys to Spin Casino’s live, licensed and distributed content in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Michigan. In a press release at the time, Bragg said he would “immediately strengthen Spin’s US iGaming relationship.”
It also made Spin founder and CEO Kent Young, president of Bragg’s Americas. Young said at the time that the company “is in a perfect position […] To quickly implement iGaming’s expansion plan in the US and Canada.”
Thursday’s Ontario roll proves that Young and Bragg aren’t just talking about rapid American expansion.
For the Ontario market, Bragg plans to offer “in the coming months […] An initial batch of 22 games.” These exclusive titles will come from Bragg’s own studios and partners.
Smiles all around
In the press releaseBragg CEO Yaniv Sherman said his company is pleased to expand an already well-established partnership with RSI in Ontario.
“With Ontario expected to become one of the largest iGaming markets in North America, this partnership with RSI will play an important role in our growth strategy in North America,” he explained.
Richard Schwartz, CEO of RSI, said his company is “delighted to bring more best-in-class content to gamers from some of the world’s best suppliers and the Bragg portfolio will help us do just that.”
Schwartz added that RSI is “excited” to bring “high-quality casino games” from Bragg to the Canadian market.
