Arizona-based gaming supplier Design Works Gaming (DWG) is looking to expand into the real-money European iGaming market after appointing former Realistic Games CEO Andy Harris to head up its UK operations.

DWG has developed land-based titles for Aristocrat, IGT, Konami, Novomatic and Scientific Games since its inception in 2005, and recently moved into the social casino sector through the launch of its own brands, Diamond Sky Casino, Spin Vegas Slots and Super Scratcher Casino.

The supplier is now poised to enter the real-money iGaming market and has applied for a supplier license from the UK Gambling Commission.

Former Realistic Games CEO Andy Harris will serve as UK chief executive, helping to deliver a selection of DWG’s top performing land-based and social games into the real-money market.

“For online real money brands Design Works Gaming is currently the best slots supplier they’ve never heard of,” said Harris. “But from the excitement we are generating among those with whom we’ve already had conversations, we won’t remain a secret for very long.

“We have a huge selection of proven revenue generators that enjoy an enduring popularity with players from all demographics, in a wide number of markets. Having prospered in the tough social casino environment as an operator ourselves, we have a wealth of player data which we use to perfect our games.

“These and our unique player-focused tools are very attractive to online RMG brands looking for fresh content that stands both the challenges of an increasingly difficult industry and the test of time.”
