Scientific Games Becomes Exclusive Content Aggregator of White Hat Studios™ Content Across United States
Scientific Games Corporation (Scientific Games) has enhanced its industry-leading OpenGaming™ aggregation platform after signing an exclusive four-year content deal with White Hat Studios™ (WHS), White Hat Gaming’s new U.S.-focused casino content division.
Scientific Games will become the sole content aggregator in the U.S. to distribute titles from White Hat Studios™ which offers hundreds of slots, jackpots, RNG table and instant-win titles.
Recently, the studio acquired a catalogue of games and RGS for the U.S. market from the UK’s largest slot provider Blueprint Gaming, allowing operators in regulated states to utilize a wide range of content from one of Europe’s biggest online developers.
Through OpenGaming™, operators will have access to leading titles such as Ted™, Almighty Buffalo Megaways and Eye of the Dead as well as quality land-based inspired iGaming content from Merkur Gaming and Reel Time Gaming (RTG) and Lucksome. As part of the agreement, games that feature Jackpot Royale, an industry-leading progressive jackpot system, will also be made available through the platform.
The deal will see White Hat Studios™ content made available in Michigan, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia beginning in 2022. More state launches are expected to follow as iGaming legislation accelerates in the U.S.
The deal serves as a further boost to the OpenGaming™ offering and showcases the appeal of the iGaming ecosystem for U.S.-based operators.
“As soon as we heard about the launch of White Hat Studios, we knew there was a huge opportunity for us to combine forces,” said Steve Mayes, Partnership Director at Scientific Games. “This is a landmark deal for both parties and will provide our U.S. operators with access to a fantastic suite of slots, table games and jackpots. It’s a perfect synergy of content, scale and innovation.”
“When we originally came up with the idea of forming White Hat Studios specifically to cater for the booming U.S. market, we knew that selecting the right aggregation platform would be vital to our chances of making an immediate impact,” said Andy Whitworth, Chief Commercial Officer at White Hat Gaming. “We firmly believe that we could not have chosen better than OpenGaming™, given its unrivalled distribution network and scalability, which are both of paramount importance as the U.S. market continues to grow. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with Scientific Games and OpenGaming™.”
