White Hat Studios' recent partnerships
White Hat Studios previously signed other deals with multiple companies most notably with Pariplay igaming brand, Aspire Global. The Studios’ will offer titles from its Wizard Games studio, as well as titles from other vendors for the brand.
“Pariplay’s wide-ranging content, in addition to its engagement tools, has proven to be very popular across numerous markets and it’s a boost to be able to enhance our platform by offering it to our operator partners,” said Michael Waterfield, White Hat Gaming VP Commercial.
“We see this initial deal as being only the start of a long and fruitful partnership as both parties continue to make major inroads into regulated markets across the world.”
The Fusion platform is set to distribute the titles for Pariplay. Fusion has a series of conversion, retention, and tool mechanics created for operators to monitor player engagement and entertainment. It has 12,000 games currently in its library.
“White Hat Gaming has a similar business style to Pariplay. It is agile, fast-moving, and expanding at a rapid rate in similar markets to us, with a strong core business in Europe and with similarly strong ambitions across regulated North America,” said Andrew Maclean, Pariplay VP Sales.
White House and Pariplay first discussed the partnership at ICE London industry meetings. White Hat was immediately open to negotiation as Pariplay has an esteemed product portfolio and engagement tools.
“To sign such a major deal at ICE London was a great moment for both parties, and we look forward to working closely with such a major content provider,” said Maclean.
