Microgaming integration deal a “huge milestone” for Hacksaw Gaming.
There’s a new member joining the Microgaming partner table this week, and its name is Hacksaw. This new company may seem a bit young for Microgaming’s taste, but the quality of its games are superb, and the variety is more diverse than what Microgaming usually seeks in a new games developer.
Hacksaw Gaming’s portfolio does contain a few online slot machines. They are the types of games that have always made up the bulk of Microgaming’s Quickfire platform. But this time, it wasn’t slot that drew the world’s oldest and most respected iGaming software group to the table. It was Hacksaw’s extensive line-up of award-winning instant win games.
Hacksaw Gaming Scores Content Deal with Microgaming
On Wednesday, Hacksaw excitedly announced the deal with Microgaming, the world’s leading supplier and aggregator of digital internet casino software. The company notes that this latest contract represented a significant expansion of Hacksaw’s market reach and brand visibility. The agreement was referred to as a “huge milestone” for the Maltese brand.
Hacksaw’s content portfolio, including their most popular titles, Stick’Em, Cubes and Scratch Platinum, will roll out on the Quickfire platform sometime during the third quarter. Microgaming’s already massive platform, consisting of more than 1,000 diverse casino games, will bring Hacksaw’s unique titles to the group’s 800+ online casino licensees.
A Peek Under the Hacksaw Hood
Founded in September 2018, Hacksaw has built an impressive suite of online casino games already. The majority of them – a total of 36 at present – are instant win games, a.k.a. virtual scratch cards. They’re not just your typical scracthies. Some come with unusual and humorous themes, like my personal favorite, Shave the Beard.
The slot machine selection is small for now, featuring just seven unique titles. That’s something the development crew is working hard on at the moment. January of this year, the company announced a new jackpot concept in the works; one that would see Hacksaw producing “far larger prizes than what is available in the market today”. Slots jackpots in the 25-50 million euro range are coming. Surely, that was a factor in Microgaming’s choice to sign on early.
Applause & Praise From the New Partners
The heads of both companies were enthusiastic in their announcements of the content aggregation agreement.
“We are thrilled to be collaborating with Microgaming and their market-leading content aggregation platform, and look forward to providing our new and innovative content to their ever-growing portfolio of operators,” said Hacksaw COO Marcus Cordes.
“We have always strived to come up with different and exciting products to deliver the best gaming experience and we believe that we will be able to reach a huge new audience of players,” he continued. “Microgaming currently serves more than 20 regulated markets worldwide with some of the largest iGaming operators in the business, so we are really excited to be able to offer our games to their operators and look forward to growing the Hacksaw Gaming brand through this collaboration.”
Microgaming’s Commercial Director, Leon Thomas, had this to say:
“We are pleased to welcome the latest addition to our growing network of content partners. Hacksaw Gaming are a new provider on the scene, and we are keen to explore how their innovative approach to developing casino content will enhance our offering at Microgaming.”
