CryptoLogic Launches First DC Comics Branded Games28th October 2009 8:54 am GMT
As part of its exclusive multi-year licensing agreement signed earlier this year with Warner Bros. Digital Distribution and DC Comics, CryptoLogic has announced the launch of two new branded online slot games based on popular comic book superheroes, Batman and Wonder Woman.
CryptoLogic will earn recurring revenue based on a share of wagers placed by players on the games. The company also plans to launch several other new games later this year, including one based on Superman in December, with further roll-outs expected in 2010.
"With the Batman and Wonder Woman on our side, we're confident CryptoLogic will again demonstrate the connection between big brands and revenue growth," said Brian Hadfield, CryptoLogic's President and CEO.
"CryptoLogic's greatest strength is partnering with the brands that attract players to the biggest gaming sites in the world - providing increased revenue for our licensees and value for our shareholders."
The new game pack also features a video slot game, Monkeys to Mars, a new table game called Triple Action Hold'em, a new video poker game known as Aces and Faces, as well updated versions of perennial favourites Let it Ride and Three Card Poker.
"CryptoLogic's strength is extraordinary e-gaming innovation, and when we match big brands with big ideas, we have a partnership that's built for success," said Justin Thouin, CryptoLogic's Vice President.
