Betting group Scientific Games announced today that they've come to an agreement to purchase developer Authentic Gaming, which will give SG an entry into the live dealer casino market.

The agreement will give Scientific Games an important foothold into a vertical that's growing in popularity and being offered in regulated markets around the world. This purchase comes just a few months after SG purchased Australian slot developer Lightning Box.

Authentic has a series of live dealer roulette games in their library. The company also works with the likes of Mr Green, 888, LeoVegas, and other major betting operators.

Regarding the deal, Scientific Games CEO Barry Cottle said, "We are thrilled to have Authentic Gaming join the Scientific Games family and expand our premium product portfolio as we execute on our vision to become the leading, cross-platform global game company.

"The collective power of Authentic, our proven Table Games titles and our OpenGaming platform allow us to capitalize on a growing U.S. market opportunity with our unique omni-channel approach."

Authentic Gaming CEO Jonas Delin also commented, noting: "Scientific Games' leading position in the U.S., their focus on quality games content and market-leading iGaming platform make them the ideal home for Authentic to expand our footprint in the U.S. and European markets.

"Our proven technology and live dealer platform is ready for scale and now, as part of Scientific Games, we are able to embark on our studio expansion and game diversification strategy in full force."
