The partnership means that the developer’s premium slots are now available to operators powered by the provider’s cutting-edge GT Casino platform. This includes player favourite titles such Midnight Fruits 81, Bonus Joker II and Rich Kittens.

Apollo Games is renowned for combining truly striking graphics and animations with big sound and gameplay that builds anticipation and delivers huge bursts of excitement as the reels spin and the mega wins potentially line up.

The studio is also a pioneer of jackpot slots, with each title coming hooked up to its Apollo Jackpot system which promises to give players the chance to trigger a life-changing win at any moment.

An Apollo Jackpot win is completely random, which is why it’s also known as a mystery win, and the chance of winning is not impacted by the player’s bet size or whether the spin wins or not.

It is cooperations such as this that have seen Gamingtec become the go-to platform and content provider of choice for operators looking to offer a comprehensive, quality portfolio of games to players while having the flexibility to localise for specific markets.

Andrei Beu, Commercial Director at Gamingtec, said: “Content is a powerful differentiator for operators and especially those looking to deliver highly localised game portfolios to their players. This is why our content hub is packed with more than 10,000 slots from all of the major providers in the business.

“Apollo Games is a great addition to our offering. Its games stand out in any operator lobby and its innovative jackpot feature means high levels of anticipation and excitement with each spin – who knows when the jackpot will trigger and a life-changing win will land?

Robert Mikudik, Head of Commercial for iGaming at Apollo Games, added: “Gamingtec is behind some of the biggest online casino brands in key markets from Africa to LatAm, Europe and beyond. This partnership really does open the door to more quality operators than ever before we can’t wait to see their players experience the thrills our slots provide.”
