Eyecon joins Playtech family:
Estonia-founded software company Playtech plc acquired Eyecon in early 2017 for a total consideration of £50 million. In addition to strengthening the company’s bingo distribution network, the purchase gave it access to industry-leading slots content, all of which are available to Playtech’s bingo licensees.
Commercial Director for Microgaming, Leon Thomas, also commented on the collaboration, stating…
“Looking forward to a successful and mutually-beneficial partnership with Eyecon. The deal will enable Microgaming to bolster its content offering with Eyecon’s iconic collection of casino slots, while also providing Eyecon with significantly greater exposure, scale and reach.
“Microgaming continues to collaborate with top-performing content partners such as Eyecon to keep its diverse, industry-leading games portfolio fresh and innovative for its customers.”
Founded in 1997, Eyecon has developed more than 70 games and established its own remote gaming server (RGS), which provides content direct to major firms, such as Gala Bingo, William Hill, Vera&John, bet365, Lottoland, GVC Holdings, 888, Virtue Fusion, Playtech’s bingo network, and popular online operator, Videoslots, among others.
