Mobile gaming group LeoVegas has started its own game studio, Blue Guru Games, to develop new products.
The studio will develop exclusive games for LeoVegas and offer them to other operators with the first games becoming available later this year.
The company is a leading supplier of games for casinos, bingo and sport. Its head office is based in Sweden with operations out of Malta.
Blue Guru Games is 85 per cent owned by LeoVegas and its staff has more than 20 years’ experience in game development. It is planned to develop 20 games in the next two years.
Gustaf Hagman, group CEO, said: “For a long time we have created exclusive games with the help of external providers but now the time is right to take the step to carry out game development entirely on our own. Drawing from our data and casino knowledge we will be able to drive innovation and create games that our customers truly enjoy. These may be anything from niche, local games for individual markets to broad international games.”
