RAW iGaming, creators of the ground-breaking SuperSlice engine, has purchased Leander Games to power the expansion of SuperSlice games across regulated markets, in addition to introducing a new business area in aggregation.
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 the studio that is known for great titles like Ave Caesar and Alibaba and the 40 Thieves. After meeting with Leander management, we felt an immediate cultural connection, identified their deep skillset in platform and distribution, as well as the clear synergies we could both bring in game development making RAW a new force to reckon with.”
The Leander Games platform is live in 13 regulated markets and is well-placed to distribute and expand RAW’s disruptive product and technology offering.
Steven Matsell, Leander CEO, added: “We are very excited to become 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.”
The acquisition of Leander marks RAW’s arrival as a major player and disruptor in the online sector. Wit this first acquisition completed, RAW is looking for further such opportunities as it continues to position itself as what it describes as “the pink shark in the sea of sameness.”
