This comes at a time of extended growth for GiG, and this partnership is another step to create a fully integrated iGaming ecosystem.
“We are very happy with this investment and with the partnership between us and D-Tech. The people behind the studio are industry veterans and masters of their craft. So we know that they will produce great games. Investing in an Asian game studio helps us build games for Asian players in Europe, effectively increasing our output in number of games per year to match the volume of larger game providers in the industry.” – Mathias Larsson, MD of GiG Games

GiG’s entrepreneurial and innovative culture is a perfect fit with our own and this deal provides D-Tech with a fantastic opportunity to team up with the leading innovative iGaming operator while we focus on building games for Asian players” – Harmen Brenninkmeijer, Founder of D-Tech.
