|London, England (22nd May 2007) – WagerWorks/IGT, a premier iGaming software supplier, announced that it has extended its partnership agreement with SkyBet to integrate WagerWorks games on the iDTV SkyVegas channel.|
WagerWorks is releasing some of its most successful slot games on the SkyVegas channel. The first game which has already gone live is the 20-payline Cleopatra®, this will be followed by the 9-payline Monopoly with Pass “Go” Bonus. This new proposition rides on the continued success of its online casino offering, skybetvegas.com, also supplied by WagerWorks.
This collaboration is an expression of SkyBet’s wish to capitalise on the synergy that exists with WagerWorks, the opportunity to ‘cross-sell’ and the need to broaden Sky’s offering with top–tier, proven-performing slot games, which will attract new players to the channel and reinvigorate their existing players. This is a unique opportunity for WagerWorks to explore new markets for its top quality games by targeting a very broad audience who might prefer to play games through the TV rather than through a computer.
Paul Mathews, President of WagerWorks Inc., comments: “WagerWorks is very excited about this collaboration with SkyBet which we believe will raise the bar on game play and production quality for a gaming interactive channel.”
John Parsonage, Head of Gaming for SkyBet, comments: “This is a positive step to further enhance our iDTV gaming portfolio with a selection of some of the best games in the industry.”
