LAS VEGAS – February 8, 2023 – Light & Wonder, Inc. (NASDAQ: LNW) (together with its subsidiaries, “Light & Wonder”) has further enhanced its OpenGaming content portfolio with the exclusive addition of game studio Atlantic Digital, who will now team up with the Playzido Remote Gaming Server (“RGS”) platform to deliver a range of new games based on classic film and TV titles.
Atlantic Digital has secured the gaming rights to a host of well-known, and soon-to-be announced brands, with games launching via OpenGaming from Spring 2023 onwards.
Atlantic Digital will release a series of games developed using Playzido’s proprietary RGS platform.

We’re able to build games quickly and efficiently via the super-professional team at Playzido, but even more importantly, we’re now able to access the biggest operators on both sides of the Atlantic. We are looking forward to an excellent relationship in the years ahead”
Steve Mayes, Digital Partnerships Director at Light & Wonder, said: “The team at Atlantic Digital has a proven track record in the industry and they bring with them fantastic possibilities given the wide range of brand rights that they have secured.”
