Octavian to Create Games for Spielo's Italian VLTs

Spielo Manufacturing and Octavian International Limited have signed a licensing agreement whereby Octavian will use Spielo’s game development kit to create games for the Italian VLT market.

Spielo, a subsidiary of Lottomatica Group, recently entered the Italian VLT market, known by its regulatory designation as Comma B6.

Spielo President and CEO Victor Duarte said, “This partnership with Octavian supports Spielo’s strategy of providing the largest and most compelling portfolio of game content in Italy.”

The games initially will be available on machines operated by Lottomatica Videolot Rete S.p.A, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lottomatica Group and one of Italy’s largest gaming machine concessionaires.

Octavian, an international provider and integrator of networked gaming solutions, currently provides top-performing games to the Comma 6A market, the designation for the AWP market in Italy.

“Spielo’s high-tech team provides world-class platforms, and their VLT and GDK are quite advanced,” said Octavian President Peter Moffitt. “When joined with Octavian’s winning content and Comma 6A successes, the end-product will definitely have a significant impact on the new Comma 6B marketplace in Italy. We look forward to seeing a large number of our games on the Lottomatica VLT network very soon.”

Lottomatica Videolot Rete CEO Guglielmo Angelozzi said, “This agreement between Octavian, a well-known provider of proven, high-performance game content to the Italian Comma 6A market, and Spielo, a longtime leader in international VLT markets, allows a more robust and complete offering to players.”

Octavian and Spielo expect to release the first games in the second half of 2010. This is the first of several content agreements Spielo expects to announce relating to the Italian VLT market.
