Leap Gaming to Roll Out Virtual Sports on 888sport in Expanded Deal

Online gambling operator 888 Holdings last week extended an existing partnership with iGaming content provider Leap Gaming to now cover the latter’s virtual sports games range.

Under a deal recently sealed between 888 and Leap Gaming, the provider will provide the operator’s 888sport brand with access to its virtual sports products.

Thanks to the upgraded alliance between the two companies, a selection of Leap Gaming’s 3D virtual sports titles will be hosted across 888sport platforms in various markets.

Leap Gaming’s virtual sports library comprises a number of products, including football, tennis, horse racing, greyhound racing, trotting, speedway, and velodrome, among others.

The latest deal between 888 and Leap Gaming builds on an existing relationship between the two companies that has seen 888’s online casino operation 888casino launch a number of the provider’s iGaming titles.

News about 888’s expanded deal with Leap Gaming emerged shortly after the major online gambling operator announced several partnerships with other major providers of content for the iGaming industry.

Last week, the operator unveiled a content delivery deal with live roulette provider Authentic Gaming that will see 888 go live with its partner’s entire suite of live roulette titles across the UK, Swedish, Danish, and Italian markets, among others.

And it was earlier this month when the operator announced that its Spanish 888casino website has rolled out slots from Red Tiger’s wide portfolio of iGaming hits.

Offering Engaging Portfolio in Safe Environment

Commenting on their expanded deal with Leap Gaming, 888 Senior Vice President of B2C Guy Cohen said that they are focused on providing their players with “an engaging portfolio of games in a safe environment.”

Mr. Cohen went on that they are impressed with Leap Gaming’s range of virtual sports and are delighted to have added them to their “platform for [their] Sport customers to enjoy.” The 888 official is looking forward to further developing their relationship with Leap Gaming in the future.

Andreea Spiteri, Head of Customer Success at Leap Gaming commented that they are thrilled to be able to build on their existing collaboration with 888 and that they deem it a great opportunity to be able to launch their virtual sports with 888sport and thus bring “exciting games to scores of fans across the UK and Europe.”

Earlier this year, Leap Gaming hailed another important deal extension, that one with its long-time partner 1X2 Network. Under the terms of the expanded deal, Leap Gaming has added its entire suite of slots titles on 1X2 Network’s 3PI game aggregation platform. The move built upon a long-standing cooperation between the two B2B gaming companies which has seen Leap Gaming develop and deliver its virtual sports on 1X2 Network’s remote game server.
