Sky Bet and OpenWager launch new social casino

22 January 2015

Online gambling operator Sky Betting and Gaming has joined forces with OpenWager, a business-to-business partner in delivering custom brand social casino entertainment, to launch a new social casino service.

‘Sky Hollywood Slots’ will feature a number of original titles and will be available to download to iOS, Android and various tablet devices.

Games such as ‘Amazonia’, ‘Kitty Mansion’ and ‘Neon Valley’ will be available to play on the new service.

“Social casino has grown significantly in recent years and presents an exciting space for us to explore, applying the expertise we have from real money gaming, and aligning this with social best practices and unique features not seen in other titles,” Sky Bet’s head of social games, Bruce Bale, said.

“OpenWager are a fantastic partner for us, bringing years of experience in social gaming, and this joint offering perfectly complements our current gaming portfolio and provides a platform to engage with new customers, particularly in Western Europe, the US, Canada, and Asia.”

John Cahill, chief executive officer of OpenWager, added: “Together we are committed to raising the bar on social casino entertainment and staying ahead of the game.

“Sky Hollywood Slots presents an entirely different type of experience for Sky’s existing customers and the new generation of players alike.”
