International Game Technology (IGT) has announced a multi-year distribution agreement with skill-games company Chill Gaming, which will see IGT as the sole distributor of Chill Gaming products worldwide outside of Australia and New Zealand.
Chill Gaming, derived by blending the words “chance” and “skill,” is a joint venture between Crown Resorts and New Gaming Pty Ltd, which is owned by the founders of Wymac Gaming Solutions.
“This distribution agreement with Chill Gaming enables IGT to bolster our solutions portfolio with even more products that are designed to attract and entertain an expanded demographic of players,” said Walter Bugno, IGT CEO International. “We believe that Chill Gaming’s solutions will complement the momentum that IGT has recently generated with innovation-driven solutions such as IGT’s Texas Tea Pinball skill-based game and our PlaySpot and Cardless Connect mobile solutions.”
“Chill Gaming is excited to form a distribution partnership with IGT,” said Peter Herring, Crown Resorts general manager product, strategy and innovation. “Our goal is to create greater value and entertainment for our customers with games that engage casino patrons in new ways. We believe that IGT’s global reach and the Company’s history in bringing innovative products to market make it the ideal partner for distributing games from the Chill Gaming portfolio.”
Two of Chill Gaming’s games, Bloomtopia and Fortunes of the Brave, will join the more than 400 gaming innovations in IGT’s stand 3659 at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas.
