Sydney-based slots developer Lightning Box has agreed a deal to launch its games in New Jersey through an expanded partnership with Scientific Games’ SG Digital division.

Lightning Box’s games will go live in New Jersey in early 2019, including titles such as Jackaroo Jack, Respin Rhino, Astro Cat, and the forthcoming Stellar Jackpot Silver Lion.

The supplier is already active in the US land-based casino market through partnerships with Incredible Technologies and Everi. It also signed a social casino deal with Penn Interactive earlier this year.

“This partnership with SG Digital will allow us to build on our already strong US land-based footprint with new exposure to players in online casino, both in New Jersey and up into Canada,” said Lightning Box managing director and co-founder Peter Causley.

“This will kick-start a mutually beneficial commercial relationship in the coming months as we expand on our content provision. It will also hopefully provide the springboard for further roll-outs as and when more US states regulate. SG Digital are perfectly positioned to help us expand our market presence in North America.”

SG Digital senior vice president of gaming, Dylan Slaney, added: “Lightning Box’s gaming content is a proven performer for us in online casino in Europe, and we look forward to working together with them in North America as well.

“This deal is a great reflection on the global opportunities we can offer to our content partners. Adding their fresh, quality games will help us provide our customers with more varied content to entertain and engage their online customers.”
