Relax Gaming, igaming aggregator and supplier of unique content, has signed an intellectual property deal with ReelPlay for the application of the Infinity Reels™ trade dress and mechanic across a range of its proprietary content as well as making the licence available to its third-party studios.
First spearheaded by ReelPlay’s blockbuster slot El Dorado, Infinity Reels™ is a unique concept in online slots where each spin provides the chance to add an additional reel and respin with a progressive multiplier. The process of adding reels repeats itself, providing maximised winning potential for players.
ReelPlay Pty Ltd and NetEnt Product Services Ltd have entered into an agreement which strengthens their rights associated with their respective marks Infinity Reels and InfiniReels.
ReelPlay and NetEnt are leading providers of premium gaming solutions to casino operations. ReelPlay’s El Dorado Infinity Reels launched in November 2019; the follow-up Giza Infinity Reels launched in April 2020. ReelPlay’s Odin Infinity Reels will launch in June 2020; NetEnt’s debut InfiniReels game, Gods Of Gold InfiniReels will launch on 14th May 2020.
Under the terms of the agreement both parties will work together to extend and protect their respective franchises of Infinity Reels and InfiniReels.
“In light of both companies independently following similar ideas, it made sense for us to come together to reinforce our unique propositions in a highly competitive market. I would like to commend and thank ReelPlay for their innovative approach and for working together with us in these dynamic times” said Bryan Upton, Director Games at NetEnt.
David Johnson, Chief Commercial Officer at Reelplay said “We are happy to have agreed a collaboration with an established, global pioneer such as NetEnt.”
ReelPlay’s second Infinity Reels™ game releases to Relax operators after exclusive LeoVegas launch
ReelPlay, an independent game studio, have released slot game Giza Infinity Reels™ to Relax operators after a successful exclusive launch at LeoVegas.
Giza Infinity Reels™ is the follow up to El Dorado Infinity Reels™ which debuted ReelPlay’s unique Infinity Reels™ mechanic in November 2019. Devised at ReelPlay HQ where innovation is paramount, each Infinity Reels™ spin provides the chance to add an additional reel and respin with a progressive multiplier. El Dorado Infinity Reels™ ranked highly in Casino Grounds’ Slot of the Year 2019 players poll, where ReelPlay also came runner-up in the Game Provider of the Year category.
Giza Infinity Reels™ develops the concept further by offering a scaling multiplier in the free spins bonus game, as well as a second chance gamble feature at the conclusion of the bonus.
David Johnson, Chief Commercial Officer of ReelPlay commented: “We are incredibly proud of our unique Infinity Reels™ innovation and are delighted that the second in the series, Giza Infinity Reels™, has launched with our partners at Relax. As ever, ReelPlay commit to push the boundaries of game development and deliver games of the highest possible quality supported by all manner of campaign and marketing opportunities in the truest sense of partnership”.
Relax Gaming, the innovative content provider and aggregation platform, is to launch a premium collection of ReelPlay’s third-party studio partner content after the two businesses extended their distribution agreement.
Following the successful launch of ReelPlay’s proprietary portfolio in August, including first to market releases of Hypernova Megaways™ and El Dorado Infinity Reels™ , the Australian independent games studio will now also provide top-quality titles from its selected partners.
As part of the Powered By partnership agreement, all parties will gain access to Relax Gaming’s fast-growing distribution platform, which supports swift and efficient onboarding of a wide range of partnered content.
Simon Hammon, Relax Gaming CPO, commented: “ReelPlay’s proprietary in-house casino games have been a hit with players and it’ll be a great advantage for Relax to add titles from ReelPlay’s quality studio partners as part of the extended deal.
“The growth of our existing partnerships demonstrates the appetite in the market for mutually beneficial distribution agreements that further the reach of other providers and boost our portfolio with coveted content.
David Johnson, CCO at ReelPlay said: “We’ve been impressed with Relax Gaming’s technical ability to support a range of studios and quickly bring their games to market.
“Widening the scope of our agreement will provide a level of expertise and exposure to our partners that is unique in the market. The Relax Gaming team are a pleasure to work with and we look forward to leveraging the mutual benefits of this agreement extension.”
Relax Gaming’s portfolio now boasts over 1000 titles from leading studios and suppliers, providing partners with rapid and easy access to its third-party catalogue via seamless integration, as well as its award-winning proprietary titles.
ReelPlay, an independent game studio, have released slot game Hypernova Megaways™ exclusively to LeoVegas before its global release at the end of the month. This follows a successful pre-release partnership earlier in the year where Buster Hammer Carnival became an immediate hit with LeoVegas players chasing the big wins and laughs on offer with the Buster hero character.
Hypernova Megaways™ is a beautifully designed, galactic themed slot game offering up to 117,649 ways to win. Each win provides a reaction, with players looking to increase their prize pool to stellar proportions by successfully negotiating the hold n’ respin bonus round. Blending the most successful recent online IP in Megaways™ with one of the most popular land based features – ingredients and influences that with the addition of some ReelPlay stardust will provide for an exciting and profitable repeat play slot.
David Johnson, Chief Commercial Officer of ReelPlay commented: “We were proud to launch our first game under the new ReelPlay brand to our partners at LeoVegas and appreciate their continued trust and support of our game development. As ever, we commit to our all our partners to deliver games of the highest possible quality supported by all manner of campaign and marketing opportunities in the truest sense of partnership”.
Mats Andersson, Casino Release Manager at LeoVegas Mobile Gaming Group said: “We were delighted with the performance of Buster Hammer Carnival and didn’t think twice when the opportunity arose to take Hypernova Megaways™ live ahead of the market. ReelPlay have certainly built a committed player following in a short space of time which has made for a profitable partnership and we look forward to working closely on future releases together.”
Relax Gaming, the new-breed games and platform supplier, has bolstered its platform content with the integration of ReelPlay titles.
The provider’s exciting, high-quality games, including Dragon 50,000 and Hypernova Megaways™, will soon be available across Relax Gaming’s distribution network as part of the Powered By partnership programme.
Sydney-based ReelPlay, formerly known as Chance Interactive, was established in 2014 by experienced gaming professionals with a record of making fresh, fun and engaging slots games. The company’s most recent release Buster Hammer Carnival continues to permeate the regulated online space.
Simon Hammon, Relax Gaming CPO, said: “ReelPlay is an exciting proposition for Relax Gaming, not only providing content that is sure to be attractive to operators, but also offering a foundation of many years’ experience.
“Relax will undoubtedly benefit from ReelPlay’s exciting new content together with the additional partners serviced through the partnership.”
ReelPlay Chief Commercial Officer David Johnson commented: “Growing our distribution network with flexible, scalable platform partners is a core priority for ReelPlay.
“This agreement with Relax more than fits the bill, giving us access to an effective and well-serviced distribution channel. I am sure our games will be a big hit with operators and players alike.”
Relax Gaming is rapidly emerging as a next generation supplier, boasting a catalogue of over 570 games whilst offering transparent fees and scalability for the hand-picked studios with which it works.
