Pragmatic Play to create dedicated live casino environment for Stake; launches with Jogos da Sorte for LatAm expansion_1
On the back of its latest deal in Latin America, Pragmatic Play has teamed up with leading cryptocurrency casino platform Stake.com for a new branded and customized live dealer studio.
The agreement with the operator it lauds as “a major emerging force in the iGaming landscape,” will see a 12-table studio built by the supplier, complete with Stake branding. The dedicated live casino studio will include 10 blackjack tables, along with one each for speed baccarat and roulette.
Commenting on the agreement, Stake Co-founder, Edward Craven, said…
“As a leading supplier in the Live Casino space, Pragmatic Play’s commitment to ensuring our every need is met was a key element in powering this deal. Its dedicated studios have performed well with major brands in regulated markets all over the world, and this is an important step forward for us.
“We look forward to it going live and really highlighting the unique capabilities of our brand.”
Founded in 2017, Stake is a community-based betting platform that has made quick work of becoming known as the biggest cryptocurrency sportsbook and casino in the world. The betting platform is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and supports multiple different cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin and Ethereum, and offers a range of sports betting, casino and gaming experiences.
The Isle of Mann-headquartered company is currently owned and managed by Medium Rare NV and has a major presence in Canada, Brazil and other regulated markets.
Major Emerging Force:
“Stake is a major emerging force in the iGaming landscape, growing markedly since its launch in 2017 to swiftly become a global name,” read a statement from Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer for Pragmatic Play.
“We’re very pleased they’ve partnered with us to create a dedicated Live Casino studio, and we are excited by the opportunity to deliver an environment worthy of the Stake brand.”
The agreement for the live dealer studio follows similar deals with leading operators Kindred, for its flagship Unibet brand, 1xbet, Mansion for its M88 brand, and most recently, 888.
As mentioned, Pragmatic Play has also agreed a multi-vertical content deal with Brazillian operator Jogos da Sorte.
The move that further expands the provider’s presence in the region will see the operator’s customers gain access to the supplier’s diverse slots portfolio, including its very first Crash-style game, Spaceman, in addition to the Leprechaun-themed Rainbow Gold, Wild Beach Party, and the 2020 hit, Fruit Party.
Players will also have access to the provider’s live casino portfolio, which includes classics such as baccarat and blackjack, as well as the game show-inspired title, Sweet Bonanza Candyland, which transforms its 2019 hit slot Sweet Bonanza into a mega wheel-style game with two exciting bonus games.
Pragmatic Play’s growth in the LatAm region has seen the provider expand existing partnerships and ink deals with new operators, having recently launched its bingo vertical in Chile and Brazil with online casino and sports betting operator Estelarbet, as well as Venezuelan operator King Deportes, inspiring further development across South America and the globe.
In company news release, Victor Arias, Vice President of Latin American Operations for Pragmatic Play, said they are “delighted” to be launching their “fan-favourite” Slot and Live Casino titles with new partner, Jogos da Sorte. He explains that their award-winning games will now be available to the operator’s player base and they look forward to seeing how their titles are received by their customers.
“This deal marks another key expansion for us into the Latin American market as we look to become a leading provider in the region.”
