Leading online gaming software supplier Cryptologic Limited has signed an exclusive multi-year licensing agreement with Warner Bros Digital Distribution and DC Comics to bring some of the world’s greatest superheroes to Internet casinos beginning in the fourth quarter.
The deal will see Dublin-based Cryptologic create games targeted at an adult audience featuring characters such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and the Flash.
CryptoLogic stated that its existing games featuring superheroes have proven very popular with Internet gaming operators and players while generating significant licensing revenues.
'CryptoLogic leads the way in bringing the world's biggest entertainment brands to the world's best Internet casinos and there are few brands bigger than the DC superheroes,' said Brian Hadfield, President and Chief Executive officer for CryptoLogic.
“It's all about doing what we do best, branded games are the fastest-growing part of our business and we expect these and other games will help drive CryptoLogic's revenue growth for years to come.'
CryptoLogic also revealed that it recently won the Top Casino Software Award from leading publication Gambling Online for the fourth consecutive year. The prize was based on the votes of thousands of readers, players and website visitors from around the world and is recognised by some as the industry's top honour. The firm also won the Best Software Award from online news portal Casinomeister.com of late alongside the Best New Slot Game Of The Year Award from AllOnlineSlots.com for its King Kong title.
'At CryptoLogic, we're proud to have earned such confidence from players and from a growing list of top-tier entertainment brands,' said Justin Thouin, Vice-President of Product Management and Business Development for CryptoLogic.
'These new games and new awards validate CryptoLogic's strategy to offer the most innovative casino software and branded games on the Internet.'
