GIG secures stake in D-Tech

27 February 2018

Gaming Innovation Group (GIG) has acquired a 36% stake in Hong Kong-based games studio D-Tech in a deal worth €360,000 ($443,900).

GIG, which secured the agreement with its GiG Games game provider subsidiary, said the link-up represents another step in its goal to “create a fully integrated igaming ecosystem”.

As part of the deal, GiG will now receive eight exclusive online games.

Content will be built directly into GiG Games’ Remote Gaming Server (RGS) and branded GiG Games, with titles to go live on GiG casino brands first and then launched with other operators across Europe at a later date.

“We are very happy with this investment and with the partnership between us and D-Tech; the people behind the studio are industry veterans and masters of their craft,” GiG Games managing director Mathias Larsson said.

“Investing in an Asian game studio helps us build games for Asian players in Europe, effectively increasing our output in number of games per year to match the volume of larger game providers in the industry.”

Harmen Brenninkmeijer, founder of D-Tech, added: “GiG’s entrepreneurial and innovative culture is a perfect fit with our own and this deal provides D-Tech with a fantastic opportunity to team up with the leading innovative iGaming operator while we focus on building games for Asian players.”
