Back in September, Merkur Gaming teamed up with Inspired Gaming Group to form Merkur Inspired to take advantage of the Italian VLT market. Merkur Inspired then partnered with Betplus and now the company has expanded giving its portfolio a facelift.
Merkur Inspired has expanded its product portfolio with a licence agreement with Las Vegas-based Konami Gaming Inc, a subsidiary of the Konami Corporation. Under the terms of the agreement, Merkur Gaming is now authorised to provide its joint venture, Merkur Inspired, with Konami’s casino games portfolio to the Italian VLT market.
Giacomo Bozzini, general manager at Merkur Inspired said in the release,“Having two strong partners out of the industry as shareholders of the joint venture, we now offer the widest range of ergonomic cabinets with the extensive library of top performing games, enlarged with enthralling games for optimum game diversity…The result is added value for all customers going with Merkur Inspired.”
The partnership was a natural fit, particularly when you follow the lines of affiliation.
Merkur Gaming is already a subsidiary of German gaming machine and services provider Gauselmann Group, which in turn currently has a partnership in place with Konami Gaming to launch casino games in the German gaming market.
