Cantor buys Wichinsky games

Cantor Gaming, an affiliate of global financial services company Cantor Fitzgerald, announced that it has acquired the assets of Michael (Mickey) Wichinsky’s family of businesses. Wichinsky started the slot design and manufacturing firm Games of Nevada in 1979, changing the name of the company to Gamemasters in the late 1990s.

Cantor Gaming now owns Wichinsky’s comprehensive catalog of casino games, intellectual property and full library of art, designs and technology.

Wichinsky will remain as a consultant to the company as Cantor integrates and adapts games and content from the Wichinsky catalog onto its mobile gaming device, eDeck. eDeck is currently undergoing field trials at the Venetian in Las Vegas.
