Atari To License Brands To Betting Firms

Classic video gaming developer Atari is looking to license its various gaming brands to online gaming companies for usage in social casinos, this according to Wired Magazine.

The announcement came from the company's CEO Fred Chesanis, who revealed that the licensing plans are a way for the company to generate revenue after coming out of bankruptcy last year. The former video game giant currently has two licensing deals in place with social betting developers, and plans to extend to other companies in the future.

The two firms already signed on include Pariplay, which will focus on real money casino games, while FlowPlay will build a play money platform dubbed "Atari Casino".

Once the largest video game company in the world, Atari has seen its doors almost close multiple times, filing for bankruptcy protection in 2013. The group now employs just ten people and is focusing on software rather than game consoles.

Some popular Atari games include: Space Invaders, Frogger, and Kaboom!

Its sad to see an icon from your childhood become a sad shell of what it used to be like Atari.

here is your news, but there is nothing else, but afaik they both already agreed to this deal, all rational gaming group managers will continue work, so players should not be worry.
Main goal for PS in this movement, they want to appear on USA market again, and with Amaya as owners it will be easier.
