Spearhead Studios Expands in Romania


Young online casino games studio Spearhead Studios has celebrated another important milestone as it looks to grow its regulated footprint.

After finalizing the process of getting its library certified in Romania, operators holding an ONJN license and servicing Romanian players will gain access to hit Spearhead games, including the likes of Lara Jones Is Cleopatra, Popstar, and Wilds of Wall Street.

Spearhead Studios is the game development arm of multi-product gambling software provider EveryMatrix. The studio was launched last fall and comprises a team of industry experts.

Its portfolio includes 20 gaming titles, including 18 slots and two table games. Spearhead debuted its first table game – European Roulette – this past March.
