Virtual sports provider VSoftCo has entered into an agreement to provide its content on Leander Games’ platform.
The deal will see VSoftCo integrate its branded virtual football game VStriker World Football League on the LeGa platform. The game is based on the popular Striker comic strip that first appeared in The Sun newspaper in the UK in 1985.
The agreement also includes the integration of VSoftCo’s casino table games, which include a Striker-branded variant of the supplier’s roulette version of Spot The Ball.
“We are delighted to be working with Leander Games and we look forward to offering the first branded virtual football game to Leander’s impressive list of stellar clients,” said VSoftCo’s chief commercial officer Simon Westbury. “This deal really does put VStriker on the map and allows for further distribution of VSoftCo’s premium virtual sports to an exclusive list of Tier 1 gaming clients.”
Leander Games CEO Steven Matsell commented: “We are always looking for innovation, to differentiate content made available via our LeGa platform.
“VSoftCo are our first foray into virtual sports and certainly fit the bill with the VStriker brand. We really appreciate their approach of blending Virtual Sports with fixed odds games to allow for a unique player experience and cross sell.”
