GIG enters partnership with Hong Kong based games studio D-Tech
Gaming Innovation Group, and its game provider subsidiary, GiG Games, are proud to announce a partnership with Hong Kong based games studio D-Tech, acquiring a 36% stake in D-Tech. This comes at a time of extended growth for GiG, and this partnership is another step to create a fully integrated iGaming ecosystem.
“We are very happy with this investment and with the partnership between us and D-Tech. The people behind the studio are industry veterans and masters of their craft. So we know that they will produce great games. Investing in an Asian game studio helps us build games for Asian players in Europe, effectively increasing our output in number of games per year to match the volume of larger game providers in the industry.” – Mathias Larsson, MD of GiG Games
D-Tech will launch their first game, ‘Year of the Dog’ in March 2018, and has several games in the pipeline with the aim to release ten games in 2018.
A selection of D-Tech Games will be built directly into GiG Games’ Remote Gaming Server (RGS) and will be branded GiG Games. The new games will go live on GiG’s own casino brands first, and will then be launched later with other operators in Europe.
“We are excited to welcome GiG as part of our team. GiG’s entrepreneurial and innovative culture is a perfect fit with our own and this deal provides D-Tech with a fantastic opportunity to team up with the leading innovative iGaming operator while we focus on building games for Asian players” – Harmen Brenninkmeijer, Founder of D-Tech.
GiG has paid EUR 360,000 for its 36% stake in D-Tech. As part of the transaction, GiG will receive eight exclusive online games.
