Malta-based gaming supplier Relax Gaming has agreed a deal to roll out its slots and table games portfolio to Nordic Leisure’s Optibet brand.

The operator will initially go live with a suite of Relax Gaming’s blackjack and roulette games, with slot titles slated for launch later in the year.

Relax Gaming chief executive Daniel Eskola described the deal as a significant step forward for the supplier in key regulated Baltic markets such as Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.

“This is a very important and exciting deal for Relax Gaming, and we are sure Optibet’s players will thoroughly enjoy our proven premium casino content,” he said.

Optibet head of casino, Chris Davies, added: “Relax Gaming’s content will allow us to bring a first-class and innovative online casino experience to our players, and we are very happy to be on board with them.”
