RAW iGaming, creators of the ground-breaking SuperSlice® engine, has purchased Leander Games which will power the rapid expansion of its SuperSlice® games across regulated markets as well as introduce a new business area in aggregation.
RAW’s new innovations will deliver exciting, differentiated content and features to Leander’s integrated customer base across Europe and South America.
Tom Wood, CEO of RAW says “This is an amazing opportunity to bring together our SuperSlice® innovation with one of the best distribution platforms in the industry along with access to the studio that is known for great titles like Ave Caesar and Alibaba and the Forty Thieves.”
Tom continues “After meeting with Leander management, we felt the immediate cultural connection, identified their deep skillset in platform and distribution, as well as the clear synergies we both bring in game development making RAW a new force to reckon within content and game distribution.”
RAW focuses on developing innovative entertainment technologies and the Leander Games platform, live in 13 regulated markets, will play a big part in distributing and expanding RAW’s disruptive product offering, delivering its content to more markets at speed.
Steven Matsell, Leander CEO adds “We are very excited to become a part of the RAW family and start the next chapter in Leander by marrying RAW’s innovative vision with our market-leading platform as well as the integration of the game teams to deliver even more innovative, ground-breaking content.”
Steven continues “This strengthens our dedication to our customers and partners, offering new games and platform innovations which are sure to shake up the market. We look forward to being a part of RAW and supporting the fight against industry monotony. We welcome new operators and studios that are ready to join as well.” Oakvale Capital LLP acted as financial advisor to Leander.
The acquisition of Leander marks RAW’s arrival as a major player and disruptor in the online sector where its motto “Stand out or stand down” has seen it generate high levels of interest among the biggest operators in the business.
With its first acquisition in the bag, RAW is always looking for additional acquisition opportunities as it continues to position itself as the pink shark in the sea of sameness.
