Winner: Leander Games
Over the past two years Leander Games has emerged from the legions of wannabe slots providers struggling to get games integrated, into one of the most exciting casino content and platform providers around.
While its content is certainly of a high standard, the secret to Leander’s success is its LeGa remote gaming server, lauded as one of the few platforms that can genuinely be considered ‘open’. Many suppliers claim they can offer clients an open solution, but in a competitive market there will always be certain restrictions on what content companies are willing to integrate on to their platform.
Others may simply be too reliant on a legacy system, leading to long integration times for new content. Not Leander – the LeGa allows for rapid integration and launch times for new content, as well as offering an ever-growing array of games from third-party providers. Currently, it offers content from the likes of AlchemyBet, Nektan, 2 By 2 Gaming and Blueprint Gaming through its RGS, and counts big hitters such as Microgaming, Amaya and OpenBet among its distribution partners.
In 2014 Leander enjoyed a rapid rise to prominence when it agreed a deal to provide casino games and LeGa to Rational Group as it evolved Full Tilt into a much broader gaming brand. This was the PokerStars operator’s first content deal – a contract that any supplier in the industry would have been clamouring to secure. Yet Leander was the company viewed as the best possible fit. Other operators have followed suit, with Paddy Power, Betfair, LeoVegas and Gaming Realms all
Leander is a small but nimble business powered by proprietary technology. It has shaken up the status quo by providing a stable of games providers with a route to market previously denied to them. Expect more from this driven and talented team.
