Rational Group Enters Agreement to Utilize Quickspin's Casino Games at Full Tilt
New casino games could be on their way to Full Tilt thanks to a new agreement inked by casino game provider Quickspin and the Rational Group, the parent company of Full Tilt and PokerStars.
It was announced early this year that Full Tilt will be offering casino games within its poker client. Amaya Gaming, the new parent company of the Rational Group, has also repeatedly stated that new games will be on the horizon in the near future.
Last week, Amaya Gaming CEO David Baazov hinted in a conference call to be on the lookout for an announcement regarding new casino game offerings. "We expect growth in 2014 in [our new] initiatives, notably in online casino, as the company continues to develop its technology platforms up to its high standards and works with various regulators to certify its solution."
We didn't have to wait long, as according to a press release issued by Quickspin, the Full Tilt brand will have complete access to Quickspin's entire portfolio of games.
If you haven't played many casino games, you may not have heard of Quickspin. The gaming supplier provides casino operators innovative gaming titles like Big Bad Wolf, which was voted "Game of the Year – 2013" at the EGR Operator Awards.
Quickspin CEO Daniel Lindberg believes the new agreement adds additional legitimacy to their games with the Rational Group selecting them over other providers.
"We are very proud and honored to add the Rational Group to our list of renowned gambling operators. It is very exciting to take part in their Casino journey at such an early stage, which I think proves the trust and confidence they have in our content."
Sam Hobcraft, director of casino at Rational Group, appears to be equally excited about the new partnership. "We are looking forward to working closely with Quickspin, as we continue to build out our slots category," he said. "Their games have a proven track record of success and we are excited to offer them to our customer base."
Amaya Gaming has made it no secret about upgrading the casino game offerings at Full Tilt and plans to add a sportsbook in 2015. Baazov reiterated that while changes will be made on these fronts, we should not expect to see changes in the poker offerings at PokerStars and Full Tilt: "[Amaya] is determined that that they not provide any disruption to the core poker offering, and that the new vertical offerings are as robust and enjoyable as Rational's online poker."
