iSoftBet’s entire selection of online and mobile casino games will be available to operators integrated with Pariplay’s FUSION network.
These include iSoftBet’s branded slots such as 24, Beverly Hills 90210, Basic Instinct, Rambo, The Warriors, and the recently launched title Platoon Wild.
iSoftBet also has a wide range of original slot games including Spin Or Reels, Cloud Tales, Mega Boy, Luxury Rome HD, Astro Magic, and Neon Reels.
Meanwhile, Pariplay’s portfolio of more than 100 branded and proprietary games will be made available to operators through iSoftBet’s Game Aggregation Platform (GAP).
These includes titles such as Atari Black Widow, The Three Stooges, and Las Cucas Locas, as well as instant-win games Atari Asteroids, Tiki Madness, and Arctic Madness, and scratchcard games Star Raiders and Zodiac Fortune.
"Our content partnership with iSoftBet will extend the reach of our own portfolio of games into new European and international markets," said Adrian Bailey, general manager of Pariplay. "At the same time, iSoftBet’s content, which includes many state-of-the-art branded games and an important focus on mobile gaming, will expand and diversify our own FUSION content network."
Michael Probert, head of business development at iSoftBet, added: "We are pleased to be a strategic content partner with Pariplay and look forward to showcasing our best-performing games to the industry with this integration."
"We share the same vision of providing our customers with leading technology and product enhancements to meet their requirements."
Realistic Games has launched a new football-themed slot ahead of the start of the 2016/17 Premier League football season this weekend.
Goal! is a five reel, ten-win line game available in Flash and HTML5 that features whistles, balls, boots, and trophies. A bonus round is awarded when each reel contains three of the same symbol from top to bottom with a maximum prize of 5,000 x the stake per line.
Pressing the flashing football during the bonus randomly selects a reel. All other reels that do not already contain the selected symbol will then re-spin and will land with either 1, 2 or 3 of that symbol, giving the player the chance to score a full house.
Realistic CEO Andy Harris commented: “The start of the new domestic seasons in Europe felt like a great opportunity for us to launch Goal! and I’m sure both slots and football fans will enjoy playing it.
“We have found football themes have had universal, cross-territory appeal in recent times, provided they have good maths models behind them, and we’re excited that this one will be a winner too.”
iSoftBet has announced a new strategic partnership with bingo and casino operator BGO Entertainment.
The deal will see BGO add iSoftBet’s entire suite of content to its platform, comprising slots and table games in HTML5 and Flash. The operator’s customers will now have access to new titles from iSoftBet’s portfolio, such as Cloud Tales and Spin or Reels, as well its range of third party content via the supplier’s Game Aggregation Platform.
“We’re very excited about our partnership with BGO - it will be particularly a good one for players as they will experience an outstanding fusion, where iSoftBet’s innovative games will be available at a platform known for its excellent operation, BGO,” said Nir Elbaz, managing director at iSoftBet.
BGO’s director of casino and bingo, Stuart Banks, added: “We’re determined to offer our players the very best games in the industry so we’re delighted to sign up with iSoftBet and add their games to our site in the coming months.”
Betsson has added a selection of games from UK-based content developer Red Tiger Gaming to its content portfolio.
Amongst the titles are top performing slots Lucky Wizard and Winter Wonders, which were recently adapted for Betfair to include a jackpot feature during the Euros, and the Asian-themed Dragon’s Luck.
Other slots including Blue Diamond and Five Star are due to be rolled out shortly, with table games and additional slot content to follow.
"We are always looking for new opportunities to expand our casino offering and Red Tiger Gaming’s content has already proven very popular with players around the world," Betsson chief commercial officer Jesper Svensson said. "We look forward to working with Red Tiger Gaming in the future."
A spokesperson for Red Tiger Gaming added: "This is a real coup for Red Tiger Gaming and we are very pleased to be working with such an esteemed operator.

Alea Gaming's virtual reality casino SlotsMillion has added new content from NetEnt and Play'n GO to the portfolio of games it offers players.
The offering now features more than 1,200 games after the addition of the new titles.
The first is Grim Muerto from Play'n GO, based on the Mexican holiday the Day of the Dead. It is a five-reel game with twenty fixed paylines and features a mariachi band and traditional Mexican sounds and symbols.
It uses a large guitarron as a wild symbol, which can be substituted for any other reel symbol to form winning combinations. Its free spins mode is based around the Book of the Dead, which can offer unlimited free plays as each of its pages are turned.
The second title to go live on the virtual reality casino is NetEnt's When Pigs Fly, a game featuring cartoon pig astronauts in outer space.
It is a five-reel, three-line slot with a cross-shaped grid offering up to 3,125 winning combinations.
The launches further strengthen Alea's ties with the two developers, with SlotsMillion already offering 113 NetEnt and 57 Play'n GO titles.
Cherry’s Yggdrasil Gaming has added to its collection of BOOST promotional tools with a new replay and share function.
BRAG allows players to watch the replays of winning spins and share them with friends and fans on social media.
BRAG will initially allow players to watch and share replays on Yggdrasil’s tournament leaderboard, while future updates will enable players to share any big win or spin from their last 10 game rounds.
BRAG will be launched as part of a €25,000 network campaign tournament for the popular Yggdrasil slot, Golden Fish Tank. The campaign will run between 12th and 21st August and BRAG will be utilised alongside other BOOST promotional tools, including the in-game leaderboard and in-game raffle.
Yggdrasil CEO Fredrik Elmqvist said: “There is nothing wrong with a bit of bragging, and with Yggdrasil’s new BRAG tool we are giving players the opportunity to share their success with the world.
“Once again Yggdrasil has launched an industry-first innovation which has the potential to drive revenues for operators and create a more engaging experience for users. There will be plenty more to come from BRAG, with new features to be rolled out in the coming months.”
Gaming platform and content provider ORYX Gaming has expanded its portfolio with the addition of three new titles from German supplier GAMOMAT.
It follows the successful roll-out of 15 games from the Malta and Isle of Man-licensed supplier, with Super Duper Cherry among the new games to be added to ORYX’s platform.
Super Duper Cherry is a popular German land-based video slot. It is a 5x3 reel slot, played on 5, 10 or 20 pay lines, which includes a symbol transformation feature.
When five cherries are uncovered on any payline they change into a randomly selected symbol to pay out prizes. Players also have a chance to multiply their winnings by gambling on the ladder or card colour.
ORYX’s operator partners will also have access to GAMOMAT’s Sticky Diamonds and Fort Braves slots, with all three available for desktop and mobile.
“We are in an excellent position to release plenty of diverse games to our operators within the next few months,” said ORYX Gaming CEO Matevz Mazij. “What’s more, we have a number of exciting new content providers joining forces with us later in the year.”

A new social betting app which gives football fans the chance to compete in pre-match and in-play betting leagues has been launched on iOS.
UK-licensed EveryFan cuts out the bookmaker by providing a platform for players to play against their friends and take advantage of the rise of the second screen and on-the-go gambling.
The app features a range of free and paid-for tournaments and challenges players to wager 10,000 points on a range of betting markets. Players with the highest total of points and in the money positions at the end of the tournament win a share of the prize pool.
Leon Walters, chief executive officer at EveryFan, commented: “A first scorer bet can end as quickly as it begins, but with EveryFan you are given the chance to stay involved for the full 90 minutes.
“EveryFan players can set up leagues, as well as dictate the buy-in and pay-out structure. It helps make betting more sociable and there’s no better feeling that winning your mate’s cash.”
Currently available on iOS, EveryFan will soon be launched on Android and desktop.
