Synergy Blue and Spirit Gaming have announced that they have entered into a distribution agreement for European skill-based and chance-based game distribution. Under the terms of the agreement, Spirit Gaming will provide sales distribution and localised support for Synergy Blue’s HAWG (Hybrid Arcade Wager-based Gaming) platform and skill- and chance-based games in European markets, including: Germany, Netherlands, Austria, Slovenia, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein and Belgium.
Synergy Blue’s patented HAWG platform is a class III certified solution that blends GLI11-compliant skill-based or chance-based gambling, allowing for regulatory compliance in multiple jurisdictions. HAWG and its games are meant to appeal to a new generation of gamers, providing an engaging experience through a seamless entertainment component and uninterrupted arcade-style entertainment.
“Synergy Blue’s unique HAWG system provides a level of flexibility needed to compete in the heavily regulated markets of Europe,” said Frank Ziegler, managing director of Spirit Gaming. “Their arcade-style games with skill or chance components allow for an overall more engaging experience for the new generation of player.”
“Understanding the gaming landscape throughout Europe, where some countries allow skill and others don’t, is an important piece of the puzzle,” said Georg Washington, CEO of Synergy Blue. “Spirit Gaming is strategically positioned to support our skill- and chance-based games throughout Europe from their centrally located, Germany-based headquarters. Distributing compliant games that are fun and a new way to gamble allows European casinos to provide new offerings to attract new demographics.”
