Gaming platform group Pariplay revealed that they've signed Japanese gaming company Konami to a distribution agreement, which will see the company's online casino games being added to the Pariplay Fusion platform for deployment.
Konami has become engrained in the betting industry, having deployed a number of slot machine, virtual racing machine, and other betting products around the world. The company has operations in key markets like North America and Europe, and is looking to push further into the online market moving forward. Fusion will allow Konami to reach more than 150 different operating companies throughout the globe, giving it a good foothold from which to continue that desired expansion.
Pariplay is based out of Gibraltar but holds licenses in several jurisdictions, including the UK, Malta, Greece, Spain, and many others. The company's Fusion platform provides more than 14,000 games from dozens of suppliers, and has access to hundreds of betting domains.
"Konami Gaming has built a deserved reputation for producing online titles that are of the utmost quality," said Pariplay Director of Partnerships Callum Harris. "Its history of success in the land-based world has translated equally well to the digital landscape and its portfolio is very impressive."
"It is a major boost to be able to add Konami's games to the Fusion® platform, and we are sure that they will perform very well in markets right across the world."
Konami Gaming CEO Steve Sutherland also commented, adding: "Pariplay's Fusion® platform has a great reach for us in terms of connecting with new customers globally, so this deal represents a great way to get our content in front of broader player audiences.
"Our portfolio of classic and modern titles has stood the test of time and this agreement with Pariplay will help us to continue to excel in both established and emerging markets."
As of press time there hasn't been a timeframe for the integration of the games.
