Two global gaming giants, Canada’s Amaya Gaming Group (AGG) and Austria’s Novomatic Group of Companies (NGC) have just renewed their two-year Greentube content distribution deal. The newly-signed agreement is actually the extension of a long-standing partnership contract that was initially inked by Greentube and Amaya back in 2009.
The renewed agreement enables AGG’s casino licensees to access a selection of 28 real money slot games developed by Greentube for Astra Games of the Novomatic Group of Companies. The selection of games available will include Greentube’s new title releases under NGC’s wings. According to Amaya Gaming Chief Executive Officer David Baazov, extending the Novomatic-Greentube agreement reflects his company’s dedication to providing customers with the broadest collection of premium gaming content possible; the move further strengthens AGG’s position as the global gambling industry’s leading content aggregator.
Thomas Graf, the Chief Technology Officer of Novomatic voiced his company’s delight with the continuance of their long standing business relationship with Amaya, and they are looking forward to offer their highly popular and high performing land based slots to Amaya’s growing base of leading casino industry customers.
The Amaya Gaming Group started out in 2004 as a medium-sized technology-based gaming solutions company for the regulated gambling industry. Today, AGG is one of the world’s well-placed international providers of gaming technologies and services to some of the largest and well-known global gambling operators and casinos. Founded and based in Montreal, Canada, the gaming company maintains offices in Asia, Europe, Latin America and North America. Through acquisition deals, AGG took other gaming companies under its wings, which include Ireland’s software application service provider Cryptologic, Stockholm-based online casino and poker games provider OnGame and Georgia-based slot machine manufacturer Cadillac Jack.
Amaya enables its global partners to deploy their gaming content whether for terrestrial, online or mobile gaming channels, through AGG’s proprietary but flexible gaming platform as it has the capability to integrate the best-in-the-market third party game contents.
