Playtech has announced a content agreement with leading gambling operator SkillOnNet.

Under the brand new agreement, Playtech has launched its complete catalogue of casino games and live titles with SkillOnNet and its UK brands, including PlayOJO, Metal Casino, PlayKasino, Bacanaplay, and numerous other casino websites. Playtech’s casino games will be rolled out in other jurisdictions SkillOnNet operates in within the coming months.

The games to launch with SkillOnNet’s brands include Playtech’s Age Of The Gods series, the DC Comics licensed slot games, as well as popular hits like Epic Ape, Buffalo Blitz, and more. Alongside slots, SkillOnNet users will be able to enjoy Playtech’s table games and live casino titles, including the industry’s first-ever live slot games.

SkillOnNet and Playtech’s content agreement expands Playtech’s reach across Europe and internationally while also extending SkillOnNet’s content portfolio, which already includes a gigantic selection of content from developers like Microgaming, Pragmatic Play, NetEnt, Red Tiger Gaming, and numerous others too.

Michael Golembo, the Sales and Marketing Director at SkillOnNet, said in a statement to CasinoBeats: “Playtech is an absolute titan of the industry and we are delighted to have integrated its extensive suite of online casino and live dealer titles into our game portfolio, making them available to our operator partners for the first time.

“SkillOnNet is licensed in core European markets, allowing Playtech to get its content in front of players at some of the hottest casino brands and in more jurisdictions than ever before. At the same time, it allows our operators to offer players some of the most iconic games in the industry.”

James Frendo, the Casino Director at Playtech, added: “This partnership with SkillOnNet is significant for Playtech as it allows us to deliver our online casino and live casino games to key regulated markets and via some of the most popular online gambling brands in the industry. We are excited to bring our entertainment-led experiences to key international audiences and we are positive our games will be a big hit across SkillOnNet brands.”

The news comes after operator SkillOnNet launched new online casino Zebra Wins in April and after it launched new online casino SlotStars last month. It also comes after SkillOnNet made its debut launch in New Jersey via a content agreement with Caesars Entertainment.

Pragmatic Play And Lightning Box Launch Casino Games In Colombia

Meanwhile, developers Pragmatic Play and Lightning Box have both signed content agreements to launch content in Colombia and expand their player reach worldwide.

Lightning Box made its debut in Colombia over the weekend after launching two of its most popular casino games – Blown Away and Dragon Palace – with Betsson in the country via distribution partner SG Digital. The launch comes after Lightning Box released its games in the Norwegian market via a content agreement with Norsk Tipping.

Peter Causley, the CEO and Co-founder of Lightning Box, said in a statement: “Colombia’s slots players have been enjoying two of our games in bricks and mortar venues for some time now, so we’re excited to be able to offer them games on their personal devices too. Dragon Palace was a natural one to take live after its early successes and we hope Blown Away goes down well too. We also hope that Colombia is the first of many countries to welcome Lightning Box’s games in Latin America as the area continues to regulate.”

Pragmatic Play, meanwhile, has launched its live casino games in Colomba after striking a content agreement with operator BetPlay. Under the deal, users registered with BetPlay will have access to all of Pragmatic Play’s live titles, including roulette, blackjack, baccarat, and the studio’s Mega titles too.

Victor Arias, the Vice President of Latam Operations at Pragmatic Play, said in a statement: “BetPlay is one of the leading operators in Colombia, and having our live casino games available with them will be a huge boost for both companies. The relationship between our brands has only strengthened since coming to an agreement earlier in the year, and we are excited to see how our live casino products are received.”

German Segura, the General Manager at Corredor Empresarial, added: “Pragmatic Play has proved to be one of the best multi-product providers in the industry and their games have been well received by our players so far. Pragmatic Play’s live casino offers some of the most popular live casino games on the market, and we expect the collection to resonate with our audiences.”

The new agreement marks Pragmatic Play’s further expansion within Colombia and comes as the developer continues to extend its player reach by striking content agreements with various operators, including the Betsson Group, BetVictor, BPlay, DoradoBet, Juega En Linea, 32Red, and numerous others.

Yggdrasil Partners With Peter & Sons For New Robin – Nottingham Raiders Slot

Meanwhile, leading game provider Yggdrasil has partnered with developer Peter & Sons to launch new video slot Robin – Nottingham Raiders.

According to Yggdrasil, the brand new slot, which is based on the legend of outlaw Robin Hood, is a sequel to Peter & Sons’ Robin – Sherwood Marauders game and is the studio’s fourth slot to launch under the YG Masters programme.

The game, which uses a 5×4 layout with 20 paylines and has an RTP of 96.07%, takes place in the city of Nottingham, with the game’s reels set against a row of houses while Robin and his group of outlaws, represented by the game’s main symbols, prepare to rob the rich.

Robin – Nottingham Raiders is jam-packed with special features, including a free spins mode that offers up to 15 free spins. There are also wild symbols that can randomly transform into special wilds and are collected via a meter which, when full, triggers a re-spin where all wild symbols fall on the reels.

Stuart McCarthy, the Head of Product and Programs at Yggdrasil, said: “Peter & Sons’ latest addition to the YG Masters portfolio brings the famous Robin Hood and his band of brothers alive on the slot screen for another thrilling adventure. It features a quirky ye olde English soundtrack, outstanding aesthetics and exciting gameplay, which combined delivers a great experience for slots fans.”

Yann Bautista, the Business Development Manager at Peter & Sons, added: “Following the success of our initial Robin Hood title we are excited to introduce the sequel which offers an abundance of features, great excitement and huge win potential. The game is true to our style that we are becoming known for and we keep pushing the boundaries when it comes to delivering premium gaming experiences to players.”
