Light & Wonder, Inc. (NASDAQ: LNW) (“Light & Wonder,” “L&W” or the “Company”) has struck a major long-term deal with existing OPENGAMING™ partner Blueprint Gaming, ensuring one of the globe’s biggest slot providers remains integrated within its content aggregation platform.
Through this four-year extension to the existing agreement, content provider and aggregator, Light & Wonder have ensured its extensive operator network will continue to have access to Blueprint’s diverse and innovative slot games, which are among the best performers on the OpenGaming™ platform.
Blueprint is regarded as one of the biggest slot developers in the UK where the company is based, while its games perform just as strongly across Europe, as well as in Canada following its recent entry into the regulated province of Ontario.
The studio is renowned worldwide for developing premium branded games based on iconic film and TV shows, including The Goonies™, DEAL OR NO DEAL™ and Rick and Morty™, while it continues to build game families around iconic titles such as EYE OF HORUS™ and Fishin’ Frenzy, allowing operators to reach the widest audience possible.
In addition, Blueprint’s legendary progressive jackpot system, “Jackpot King”, remains hugely popular with players across the globe, who have the potential to win significant prizes off any spin.
Securing long-term access to Blueprint Gaming’s existing portfolio of games and future releases represents another step in cementing the OpenGaming platform as the world’s leading digital casino ecosystem for the biggest and best games.
Steve Mayes, Digital Partnerships Director at Light & Wonder, said: “Blueprint Gaming’s reputation within the industry is second to none, with its games consistently performing at the highest levels within the OpenGaming platform.
