RAW iGaming has acquired Sapphire Gaming.
As a result of the acquisition, Sapphire Gaming will be instrumental in delivering SuperSlice games, as well as the next patent-pending engine which is soon to be unveiled.
Tom Wood, CEO of RAW, said: “I am so happy and proud to be able to work with one of the smartest, hidden, minds in the iGaming industry, Alec Horley, including his brilliant Sapphire team, which will continue their work in our new office based in the UK. Alec and his team will work on innovative game mechanics, develop new technologies, support external partners around our new aggregation platform in Leander and will boost our existing game studio capacity in Malaga.
Wood added: “Having known and worked with Alec and his team for years where they delivered amazing results, sometimes achieving the impossible, it was a no-brainer for us to polish this hidden gem and add them to the RAW family. With the acquisition of Sapphire, we strengthen our development capacity as well as our technology platform and gaming know-how.”
Alec Horley, CEO of Sapphire Gaming, added: “We couldn’t be more excited to join forces with RAW and the team is thrilled to be part of this amazing journey, which is about shaking up the industry and standing out in a Sea of Sameness. Having worked with Tom for many years and seeing his vision for RAW, we already know we will continue to develop innovative, differentiated game engines and new never-before-seen technologies which will push the boundaries of gaming further.”
