The Sydney-based developer will provide Everi Games with a number of its proprietary games for Everi Games’ Core HDX® and Player HD® gaming cabinets.

The first two titles from Lightning Box’s popular portfolio, Silver PrideTM and More FireTM, will be introduced to North American casinos this month, with additional titles expected to roll-out later in the year.
