Las Vegas-based blockchain technology company BlockChain Innovations Corp. (BCI) has acquired online casino games provider The Games Company (TGC).
Based in the UK with a development team in Portugal, TGC is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and Alderney Gambling Control Commission.
Its games are currently available with operators such as William Hill, BetVictor and Loto Quebec, with popular titles including Hippie Chicks, Cash Cowboy and Lucky 8 Keno, which are available in over 30 languages and feature the supplier’s freespin promotion engine.
“We are excited to acquire The Games Company,” said BCI chief executive Matt Stafford. “In addition to their proven success in the market, strong product roadmap, talented management and staff, and cryptocurrency friendliness, integrating BCI’s technology with TGC’s casino content will allow us to showcase other examples of blockchain applications in the casino content vertical.
“By adding TGC’s suite of casino content to BCI’s sportsbook, platform, and payments solution, it further establishes BCI as a full-product suite B2B gaming platform supplier with all the advantages of running on blockchain technology.”
The Games Company founder Hans Winkelmann commented: “Joining the BCI family expands BCI’s product portfolio, delivers TGC’s games into new markets and on revolutionary technology.
“By supplying our game content and other product features via BCI’s technology we can then address cryptocurrency players and the nascent Bitcoin market that has over 22m wallets and a market cap exceeding US$60bn.”
