On August 2, 2022, the leading developer of electronic table games, Jackpot Digital, announced that it has inked a licensing agreement with Piggs Peak Hotel & Casino in Eswatini, Africa. The deal would allow the British Columbian company to supply the casino with four of its cutting-edge Jackpot BlitzTM Electronic Table Games. However, the agreement is still subject to regulatory approvals.
Jackpot Digital Inc. is one of the leading developers of electronic table games for the cruise ship and the regulated casino industry. The company’s trademark products are multiplayer games, including poker and casino games, which are complemented by a suite of backend tools for operators. Thus, allowing them to properly control and optimize gaming operations.
Expanding Global Presence
The agreement between the electronic table games provider and the Eswatini casino brand was announced on August 2, 2022. It would allow for the B.C. company to expand its area of operations by delivering four of its Jackpot BlitzTM ETGs to the country. However, the licensing agreement is not finalized as it is subject to more regulatory approvals.
President & CEO of Jackpot Digital, Jake Kalpakian, shared that the manufacturer is quite proud to be collaborating with Piggs Peak Hotel & Casino, which is the company’s first official partnership in Africa. He said that Jackpot Blitz enjoys strong interest from numerous industry markets, and he is confident that it can leave a mark on the global sector.
Willie Delport, Managing Director for the African casino said that they are excited to introduce the ETG product to their guests, as the team wants to bring back the poker culture. Mr. Delport shared that the casino has hosted numerous big tournaments on its premises and that they are now thrilled to have poker action again. The casino will announce when the new offering is live.
More Recent Agreements
Last month, the B.C.-based manufacturer also announced a partnership with Rosebud Casino in South Dakota. Through this agreement, the supplier received permission to install two of its popular Jackpot Blitz™ ETGs at the casino property. Thus, securing even broader exposure of its already popular products across gambling markets in North America and entertaining even more gamblers.
However, that is not all, as Jackpot Digital has also inked a collaboration with Casino Pauma in California. The premium gaming property is located in Pauma Valley and it touts a gaming floor of over 1,000 slot machines, and live table games with Blackjack, roulette, and poker. Now, the casino has also added the provider’s innovative Jackpot Blitz™ ETG for its patrons to enjoy.
Back in June the CEO of the provider – Mr. Kalpakian shared that the company was also informed of 25 orders of its ETG product. In his words, this accounts for a 43% increase in total tables ordered or installed, since restarting of operations in the summer of 2021. He also said that the increased activity is expected to expand through 2022 and after that.
