Venture capital fund Vereeni Investments and investment & MA brokerage RB Capital have purchased a significant stake in innovative casino supplier Green Jade Games.
The Malta- and UK-licensed Green Jade has earned plaudits for its creative casino content and has struck deals with some of the biggest operators in the industry, including Kindred Group.
The six-figure investment will help supercharge Green Jade’s already impressive growth, not only via additional capital but also by plugging the company into Vereeni’s network of high-performing gaming companies.
Timothy John Heath, founder and CEO of Vereeni Investments, said: “Vereeni loves nothing more than investing in high-growth, high-potential gaming companies, and Green Jade really ticks all the boxes.
“Green Jade is led by experienced management that has the confidence, ability and creativity to push boundaries in our industry.
“We can already see from Green Jade’s content that this is a special team, and we are certain that the extra support we can provide will help them take things to the next level.”
Julian Buhagiar, co-founder of RB Capital, said: “Working with Jesper, Ben and all the team at Green Jade is a truly exciting opportunity. The team is backed by some of the best investors in the business, and in just a few months they have built some of the best engaging IP in this industry.
“It’s a pleasure to be involved in such a unique business, and we are very confident about the long-term prospects for Green Jade.”
Benedict McDonagh, managing director of Green Jade Games, added: “As a relatively young company in this space, the only way we can succeed is by creating the type of game-changing casino content that operators simply cannot do without.
“We have accepted this investment from Vereeni and RB because it not only allows us to scale our growth, but also provides access to an unparalleled network of iGaming expertise. We are absolutely delighted to be opening the next chapter in the Green Jade story alongside our investors.”
Green Jade Games is the latest beneficiary of Vereeni’s €100 million ‘Level Up’ tech fund, joining other promising early-stage ventures spanning the fields of fintech, online gaming, business intelligence, insuretech and blockchain verticals, including Global Gaming, OneTouch and Kalamba Games.
