Pragmatic Play Slots to Become Multiplayer with BeyondPlay Solution
BeyondPlay, a B2B company that develops multiplayer engagement software for online slots, has landed its first major integration through a deal with Pragmatic Play. A number of the developer’s slots will be integrated with the BeyondPlay solution and then launched for an initial period of exclusivity with the LeoVegas Group.
The partnership will allow operators to offer Pragmatic Play titles together with an exciting multiplayer mode developed by BeyondPlay that includes a range of social and interactive features.
The deal is a major step forward for BeyondPlay following its investment round last year that saw the venture arm of LeoVegas become a lead investor. Since then, the company has made several high-profile appointments including Jacqui Gatt, previously Director of Gaming at Casumo, as Chief Operating Officer, and Cristina Turbatu, formerly of Playtech, as Chief Technology Officer.
BeyondPlay’s product transforms slot play into a multiplayer entertainment experience built around a community and real-time sharing. It allows operators and their suppliers to convert existing games with a minimum of hassle. Players will be able to join gaming sessions on a chosen slot and combine their bets through BeyondPlay’s patented syndicate bet functionality, making each spin even more exciting.
We are super happy to see Pragmatic Play get behind our innovative vision and commit to being an early mover on this exciting opportunity. Having worked with the Pragmatic Play team and their slots titles in my operator roles in the past, I am confident this will be a mutually beneficial partnership. For us, to be able to showcase our solution on some of their legendary games is beyond exciting. We look forward to announcing many more such supplier deals in the coming months.
Yossi Barzely, the Chief Business Development Officer at Pragmatic Play, said that they are “thrilled” about the deal”. He added that multiplayer functionality “opens the door to a world of new opportunities. To see our market-leading titles playing a major role in the launch of the multiplayer era is very exciting.”
