Amaya's Rational Group has agreed a supply deal with International Game Technology (IGT) to roll out new game content and features for PokerStars Casino in multiple jurisdictions.
The roll-out has been facilitated by an integration with IGT's Remote Game Server, which gives PokerStars access to more than 100 titles including some of IGT's most popular slots such as Cleopatra, Golden Goddess and Wheel of Fortune.
"IGT's passion for innovation and our ongoing commitment to growing our customers' businesses continue to fuel our RGS development strategy," IGT vice president for commercial interactive sales and B2C operations Gianluca Ballocci said.
"The RGS contains a vast library of new and proven slot games and features that ignite player excitement and engagement in markets around the world," Ballocci added. "PokerStars Casino can entertain its player base with the most robust and time-tested slot content library in the industry."
Bo Wänghammar, PokerStars Casino operations director, commented: "Expanding our content library to include industry-leading games from IGT's RGS is a testament to PokerStars' ongoing commitment to offering our players the most compelling online gaming experiences. IGT's decades of experience in content creation and deployment give PokerStars confidence that the added slot content will inspire even more winning moments for our players."
