Gala Coral subsidiary Coral.co.uk has become the first operator to roll out a new Judge Dredd slot game developed by NextGen Gaming, the Sydney-based slots studio of Sweden’s NYX Gaming Group.
It follows the signing of an exclusive licensing deal earlier this year in April which allows the supplier to develop online and mobile slots and bingo games featuring the iconic character which first appeared in the British comic 2000AD in 1977.
The character has become the comic’s most popular figure, appearing in graphic novels, role-playing games, console games and two Hollywood films.
Available exclusively through NYX’s Open Games Server (OGS), the game has gone live on Coral.co.uk and utilises NextGen’s popular Superbet solution to enable maximum wild action in both the base and free games.
David Johnson, commercial director at NYX Gaming Group said “I’m delighted Gala Coral have been able to leverage Judge Dredd as a first to market opportunity via NYX OGS. Judge Dredd’s infamous no-nonsense style of law and order married with NextGen’s proven premium, repeat play slots expertise will make for a blockbuster title.
“Judge Dredd will be available in all formats across our industry’s widest distribution network, and initially to our NYX OGS partners.”
Angus Nisbet, gaming director at Coral.co.uk, added: “High profile brands such as Judge Dredd, supported by best in breed NextGen game engines are invaluable for both our acquisition and retention efforts.”
