Betfred Reaches Software Deal with Realistic GamesPublished January 7, 2017 by Mike P
A January software deal will enable Betfred to introduce its players to Realistic Games’ top releases, including the likes of Fireworks and Pirate Radio.
Realistic Games has risen to prominence as a provider of casino software in the past few years. And that growth is set to continue after a distribution deal was inked with multichannel gambling operator Betfred. From 2017 onwards, Betfred players will have access to Realistic Games’ complete gaming library.
Sharing the Full Gaming Library
After opening as a private company in 2002, Realistic Games’ rise in the igaming marketplace has been more recent. Before the opportunity to partner with Betfred came along, Realistic Games struck deals with the likes of bet365, BetVictor, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power, and Stan James from 2011 to 2013.
Moving forward, the UK-based software outfit will provide a diverse selection of games that span blackjack tables, roulette wheels, and video slots. Realistic Games CEO Andy Harris was able to reveal in the partnership announcement that his company’s games would be playable across desktop, smartphone, or tablet devices.
Exploring the Content
In terms of volume, Realistic Games has many more online slots than table games. And one of the most successful was the recently released Fireworks slot, which even managed to reach the game of the year shortlist for the 2016 eGaming Review Operator Awards. Fireworks is an eye-catching five-reel slot where players have 10 paylines and the ability to also win from a 500x jackpot or a free spins bonus round.
Looking past Fireworks, Realistic Games has more than a dozen three-reel slots for players craving the old school experience. Meanwhile, they also have more than a dozen five-reel slots that cover a number of enticing themes. Some of the latest releases include Riverboat Gambler, Go Wild on Safari, It Came from the Moon, Pirate Radio, and Double Your Dough.
Betfred commercial director Russell Young described the partnership as “a simple decision” based on Realistic Games’ ability to further expand the operator’s already deep selection of games.
