Canada’s Amaya Gaming Group has expanded its portfolio of online casino games following an agreement with online casino games developer and platform provider Leander Games.

Amaya CEO David Baazov said that he was “very pleased” to have signed what he described as “the first part of a strategic relationship with Leander Games.”

“Alongside our existing game catalogue, this partnership raises Amaya to the position of offering the most compelling casino aggregation platform in the industry,” said Baazov.

Leander will provide Amaya with its range of in-house games, including Really Poker and Reely Roulette from Reely series of games, as well third party games from the likes of Blueprint, Genesis and Quickspin, who have already integrated their games onto Leander’s LeGa platform.

The move will allow operators powered by Amaya’s Casino Gaming System to access all content on Leander’s LeGa platform without the need for any additional integration.

Amaya’s online casino games portfolio currently includes approximately 250 games, supplied to partners including Caesars Interactive, bet365, 888 and William Hill. The company’s Casino Gaming System also features online slots from the likes of Bally, SHFL and Aristocrat.

Leander Gaming’s chief executive Steven Matsell said the deal was a sign of his company’s commitment to offering the very best proprietary and third-party content to operators “as easily and quickly as possible,” describing Amaya as a key player in the industry, “with huge potential in the US.”

Quickspin CEO Daniel Lindberg described the deal as “a fantastic opportunity” for the Swedish developer to increase its presence in the industry using Amaya’s network of high-profile clients.
