H5G Inks New Deal With The Stars Group
Top independent casino games developer High 5 Games (H5G) has finally gotten its big break and is holding on with both hands. High 5 is now an official development partner to Canada’s The Stars Group (TSG), and by association then, since the latter now owns the popular UK gaming and betting giant Sky Betting & Gaming, also to SBG.
In fact, so prominent is Sky Betting & Gaming’s scope of operations in the UK that it consists of no fewer than 5 principle brands. These are: Sky Bet, Sky Vegas, Sky Casino, Sky Poker and Sky Bingo. In addition to these, the brand also owns a slew of fantasy sports sites (free to play). Sky therefore does it all and is without a doubt the inroad to be taking by anyone serious about making name as a preferred developer in the UK and in Canada.
First Up Will Be Goldstruck
The first of H5G’s top titles to be integrated to the Sky network of games will be the recently released Goldstruck. This is a mining-themed game, complete with gold and drill and shafts and super rich rewards. It proved an instant smash hit among players right from the get-go and its bound to prove no different among members of Sky’s big-number player base.
Moreover, the sheer quality in terms of ease of playability, special features, layout and design, etc. of Goldstruck, indicates the potential on the part of High 5 Games to create many more just like it. And with that having been said, the agreement is obviously not limited to one game only, with more games in the pipeline to be added on once they are released by High 5.
Next Step: Europe & Beyond
To High 5, the integration of Goldstruck on Sky’s platform is about more than just broad-based distribution. Its in fact a major foot in the door in terms of expanding even further into Europe and beyond. Or in the worlds of High 5 Games Chief Executive Officer Anthony Singer, the partnership between High 5 and an industry giant the likes of Sky Betting and Gaming is “a further indication that our exciting range of online slots are an attractive proposition for those looking to expand their online casino offerings”.
Singer said that he and the rest of the H5G team were excited about now having the opportunity to launch the group’s games with Sky and its various brands
