LAS VEGAS – (February 3, 2023) – Light & Wonder, Inc. (NASDAQ: LNW) (together with its subsidiaries, “Light & Wonder”) has signed a new partnership with games studio SPINBERRY, which brings new worlds of play to operators utilizing the OpenGaming content aggregation platform.
The new deal will see Light & Wonder’s extensive operator network, in key regulated markets around the world, gain access to Spinberry’s portfolio of highly innovative slot games.
Spinberry games are being delivered to OpenGaming via the Playzido platform. Acquired by Light & Wonder in 2022, Playzido’s platform is the perfect solution for the most exciting content studios to build games quickly and efficiently, whilst also gaining access to the OpenGaming operator network.
Spinberry boasts a vast knowledge of the land-based sector which it leverages to introduce both proven and new concepts to online players. The studio has recently launched its new-to-market mechanic “Feature Spin” in its latest title, Spinberry Wilds, providing players with a high-volatility experience which is replicated across every stake level.
The addition of Spinberry to Light & Wonder’s roster of premium game studios further cements OpenGaming as one of the world’s leading digital casino ecosystems.
Steve Mayes, Digital Partnerships Director at Light & Wonder, said: “We’re really excited about Spinberry’s roadmap and can’t wait to help them get their games in front of players worldwide. It is also further evidence that ambitious studios will always be attracted to aggregators that allows them to innovate while also getting their content out into the global gaming market in double-quick time.”
Stuart Pounder, Managing Director at Spinberry, said: “Spinberry has entered the digital market at a good pace. We are being recognized for innovation within games and outside of games, with “Feature Spin” being the first big digital launch outside of games for us. The time is right to partner with Light & Wonder and leverage the multiple benefits that they bring to the table.”
