Online slots developer and aggregator Games Inc has announced a strategic partnership with startup Jade Rabbit Studio (JRS) that will see JRS build its games directly onto Games Inc’s Reach platform.
The Malta-based studio was incorporated last year and released its first game, Black and White, last summer. JRS has several more titles ready for release and plans to launch 12 games per year in 2020 and beyond. A new game, Red Hot Reels, is due out in February.
Games Inc was established by industry veterans in 2012 and was recently awarded a Recognition Notice License by the Malta Gaming Authority and a Host (Casino) B2B License from the UK Gambling Commission, which will enable it to bring its Reach platform to more slots players through a greater range of B2B partnerships.
Games Inc has said is eager to partner with tier-one clients and small start-ups alike and to use its industry expertise to help new companies foster innovation and growth.
Jason O’Shea, commercial director of Games Inc, said: “Some of the most innovative and interesting content in the online gaming space is being created by smaller ‘boutique’ studios and start-ups who don’t feel like they need to play by the rules and are more willing to experiment. It may be a young company, but Jade Rabbit Studios has that totally fresh approach to games development that we really value. We believe JRS’s eye-catching content is a worthy addition to our growing portfolio”
Harry Biring, director at Jade Rabbit Studios said: “We’re excited to be part of the awesome Reach platform and to be jostling for position with some of the biggest names in the industry. We believe our games have what it takes to stand out from the crowd, and we’re delighted they will soon reach many more slots players thanks to the Games Inc deal.”
