Authentic Gaming was bought once again, this time the company was acquired by Scientific Games Corporation, an American company that provides gambling products and services.
The acquisition comes a week after Scientific Games sold its lottery business to US asset management firm Brookfield Business Partners LP for $6.05 billion as part of the company’s strategy to increase its investment in digital.
It is the third time the Authentic Gaming company has been sold, before being sold to its new owner, Scientific Games, it was owned by Leo Vegas and Genting.
Authentic Gaming currently supports European iGaming through a variety of live casino products. The Malta-based company, that is known for live roulette games, has recently added live blackjack to its range of games streamed live. The games are currently integrated with major casino operators such as Entain, 888, Betway Group, LeoVegas and Mr Green.
The acquisition is great for Authentic, as the investment will allow them to expand their product line to include more non-roulette games. Also, a necessary step if Scientific plans to be even more competitive in the US market.
Scientific Games CEO, Barry Cottle, said:
“We are thrilled to have Authentic Gaming join the Scientific Games family and expand our premium product portfolio as we execute on our vision to become the leading, cross-platform global game company. The collective power of Authentic, our proven Table Games titles and our OpenGaming platform allow us to capitalize on a growing U.S. market opportunity with our unique omni-channel approach.”
Scientific Games CEO, Dylan Slaney, commented:
“As a result of welcoming Authentic to Scientific Games, we will be uniquely positioned to continue to excite and entertain players to capture both the growth opportunities that exist within Live Casino and the convergence of players globally across digital and land-based channels by providing leading immersive experiences. We are excited to work with the talented team at Authentic to enhance our iGaming proposition for both operators and players.”
CEO and founder of Authentic Gaming, Jonas Delin, said:
“Scientific Games’ leading position in the U.S., their focus on quality games content and market-leading iGaming platform make them the ideal home for Authentic to expand our footprint in the U.S. and European markets. Our proven technology and live dealer platform is ready for scale and now, as part of Scientific Games, we are able to embark on our studio expansion and game diversification strategy in full force.”
