Canadian gaming and lottery supplier Amaya Gaming Group has entered into a software licensing agreement with PlayCherry, a subsidiary of Swedish operator Cherry.

The deal sees Amaya provide its casino gaming content for Cherry’s European-facing gaming portals Euroslots.com, CherryCasino.com and Spilleautomater.com, which will be supplied through the company's Casino Gaming System platform.

The portfolio of games will include online and mobile slot games, video poker and table games, branded content and games supplied by other third-party providers active on the platform. Amaya most recently integrated desktop and mobile games from 3D slot developer BetSoftGaming.

The games will be made available in multiple languages and currencies in order to better serve Cherry’s European customer base.

In its results for the first quarter of 2014, Amaya reported a 29 per cent drop in software licensing fees to CAD$9.6m. The company said however that it had signed multiple new operator agreements during the period, and has a "healthy pipeline" of new agreements, which are expected to be announced during Q2. Cherry is the first of these to be announced.

During Q1, Amaya launched six new games including jackpot slots featuring DC Comics characters Superman and Wonder Woman. The company continues to develop its mobile games portfolio, with six games expected to be released in the second quarter.
