The deal makes Sydney-based Lightning Box, High 5 Games’ first external content partner. The initial deal, according to the press release, will include a handful of Lightning Box titles to be launched exclusively on High 5 Casino over the next 12 months.
The first Lightning Box title, Chilli Gold, will go live on December 7 this year, to be followed by Silver Pride (or Silver Lion in EU) which will go live on High 5 Casino in early 2018. Already well-established in the US brick and mortar casino market, both titles have been part of successful integrations with Everi and Incredible Technologies.
Co-founder and managing director for Lightning Box, Peter Causley, said: “We are delighted to be working with High 5 Games as we look to grow our business across all channels. High 5 were one of the first companies to bring gaming to social media and we are confident we can make their first third party deal a successful one with a product that has already proven popular with US players.”
Also commenting on the collaboration, High 5 Games’ Senior Vice President, Business Development, Jean Venneman, said, “We look forward to distributing Lightning Box premium titles to millions of our High 5 slot enthusiasts who enjoy playing authentic content straight from the casino floor.”
Game designers for the social, land-based and online casino industries, each of Lightning Box’s key designers have over two decades of experience in producing commercially successful video slots.
