London-based Inspired Gaming has signed a deal with Reno-based Spin Games to deploy the first Inspired Virtual Sports in North America.
Inspired’s Virtual Sports content will be deployed using Spin’s HTML5 remote game server, The ROC (for Robust Online Client), which provides gaming content for digital gaming channels. The program will include the full suite of Virtual Sports, including Rush Horse Racing and Rush Football.
“Inspired is delighted to be working with Spin Games LLC to bring its market-leading Virtual Sports to the North American market,” said Steve Rogers, chief commercial officer of digital games for Inspired. “We have seen a rapid growth in demand for Virtual Sports in the U.K. and Europe in recent years, and I am confident that their popularity will be equaled in the U.S. The combination of our best-in-class technology and Spin Games’ distribution channel is a fantastic proposition for operators, and we anticipate a long and successful working partnership.”
Kent Young, president and CEO of Spin Games, commented, “Currently, virtual sports in the U.K. and Europe is a significantly expanding business which has been very well-accepted by operators and players alike. The virtual sports market in North America is yet to be exploited, and Spin believes the partnership is a further step in our strategy and positioning as market leader in RGS technology and content. Utilizing Inspired’s best-of-breed technology will allow for comprehensive
deployment across North America.”
