EveryMatrix’ operating subsidiary Jetbull will be the first operator to sublicense StakeLogic’s games via the supplier’s white label solution.

“We are convinced that our innovative games will be well-received by their players. This will be the start of a long-term relationship and our combined forces will bring us both to the next level.”
EveryMatrix CEO Ebbe Groes said he was happy to be able to introduce the StakeLogic portfolio of games to clients.
“By integrating their high-quality HTML5 games into our casino platform, we grow more confident in reaching out to new markets while building some of the best online casinos in the industry,” he said.
EveryMatrix has also added new titles from Lithuanian developer MrSlotty to its platform, including Emoji Slot, Super Dragons Fire and Treasures of Egypt.
Anatoliy Peev, CEO of MrSlotty parent company Loberta UAB, said he was confident that the innovative slot games will be much appreciated by EveryMatrix casino operators.
“I am excited about the fact that the integration of MrSlotty to EveryMatrix platform was successful and the whole portfolio of MrSlotty games is available to EveryMatrix clients,” he added.
Gaming solutions provider Oryx Gaming has enhanced its mobile offering with the launch of HTML5 versions of three of its most popular games.
Players will now be able to access slot titles Golden Dune, Mission Atlantis and Anaconda Eye via mobile devices.
Golden Dune and Mission Atlantis are both 25 payline games with 3 x multipliers including bonus games and free spins. The mobile versions of the games introduce a re-pick feature, where players can change their minds twice to reveal a hidden prize. Bonus trigger symbols bring further re-picks and better prizes.
Anaconda Eye has been redesigned for mobile and renamed Anaconda Eye Rapids, with new graphics and mechanics to enhance the aesthetics and speed of the game.
“Anaconda Eye, Golden Dune and Mission Atlantis have all performed brilliantly on desktop and we’re excited about taking these titles to mobile,” said Oryx Gaming CEO Matevz Mazij. “Players love gaming on the move and this development means they will be able to enjoy our content wherever they are.”
Red Tiger Gaming
Isle of Man-based casino games developer Red Tiger Gaming has expanded its client base with the rollout of its content for Panda Media's Videoslots brand.
Videoslots customers will have access to a range of Red Tiger's titles including Lucky Wizard, Winter Wonders, Dragon's Luck, Five Star and Blue Diamond.
The games will also be available to play in the operator's Battle of Slots feature, which sees players compete against one another in real-time slot battles.
In addition, Red Tiger's jackpot game feature will be rolled out on Videoslots, as well as the supplier’s Smart Spins tool, which allows operators to target specific groups of players with a variety of in-game bonuses.
Daniel Hansen, head of games at Videoslots, said he was delighted with the long-term partnership and looking forward to receiving more games from Red Tiger in the future.
"We are renowned within the industry for offering innovative games to our players and Red Tiger Gaming certainly takes this approach when creating games," he explained. "They not only engage players, but also give us access to maximise the overall game play via the Smart Spins application which will give us huge flexibility in marketing the games."
Red Tiger Gaming’s account director Carl Ejlertsson added: "Videoslots.com is undoubtedly one of the most innovative operators in the industry. Like us they are growing very rapidly and we clearly share a common philosophy on how to engage players to grow our businesses. We look forward to working closely together."
3D games developer Betsoft Gaming has unveiled a new proprietary HTML5 platform, which will become the new framework upon which all future Betsoft titles will be built.
The supplier said that the Shift platform was developed to compensate for Adobe’s discontinuing support for its Flash player, and to ensure that Betsoft games retain their detailed graphics and animations.
The Shift platform runs natively on any supporting web browser, without the need for any third party plugins.
“Our new Shift platform represents the next step in iGaming evolution, and is a tremendous milestone for the both the company and the industry,” said Mark McKeown, Betsoft’s vice president of sales and marketing. “While HTML5 has been a standard for some time, it is only just now that the technology and hardware have matured enough to allow for the standards of quality and visual excellence for which Betsoft games are known.
“We are extremely proud to introduce Shift as a comprehensive solution for future game development.”
The supplier has also released the latest addition to its Slots3 franchise. Kawaii Kitty is the first game to be presented on the Shift platform, and is a 5 reel, 10 payline video slot that pulls players into the precious pastel world of Kitty, a fully animated 3D white cat who watches over the reels while stretching into a number of typical feline poses in her pretty princess bed.
The defining element of the game is the expanding Wild Yarn feature. When a Wild Yarn symbol appears on reels II, III or IV, it will expand to make that entire reel Wild. The non-Wild reels will then all spin again, granting more opportunities for big wins while playing. A double up feature allows for a chance to double any standard win, based on the correct guess of a coin toss.
“The cheery theme of Kawaii Kitty was designed to appeal to a broad range of players,” said Stephen Jackman, Betsoft’s head of product development. “With the bright pastels and amusing feline accoutrements like the friendly tuna can and the adorable kitty brush, Kawaii Kitty brings a whole new level of purr-fection to our popular Slots3 product line.”
Alderney-licensed casino games provider iSoftBet has agreed a deal to add Amatic Industries' full range of content to its Game Aggregation Platform (GAP).
Amatic's titles will be made available via GAP, which offers access to games from more than twenty third-party partners as well as iSoftBet's proprietary content.
“iSoftBet Game Aggregation Platform (GAP) has evolved impressively over the past year and holds many distinct features, such as being able to provide fresh and well-performing content continuously,” said Micheal Probert, iSoftBet’s head of business development. “Amatic has an in-depth understanding of player needs in every country, and partnering with them will surely give iSoftBet an edge over others.”
Amatic Industries’ Tatjana Bauer-Engstberger added: “We are thrilled that our games will now be available for online play on iSoftBet’s Game Aggregation Platform (GAP).
“Our belief and strategy have always been that proven land-based games will set the hallmark for success in online gaming and we are sure that iSoftBet players will enjoy our content produced with this unique approach.”
Isle of Man-based platform provider Iforium has signed a deal to integrate Link2Win’s Linka-branded games onto its Gameflex casino platform.
The multi-year content agreement includes Link2Win’s portfolio of over 15 Linka-themed bingo, slot and keno games. As a result, Iforium customers will have access to titles such as Diamond Links, Jungle Linka and Pool Linka via mobile and desktop devices.

Link2Win’s innovative number orientated content is engaging and their unique linking’ games will add another vertical of both quality and differentiation within our Gameflex platform.
