Konami enjoys a strong presence in the U.S. market and the collaboration will see three of the Australian provider’s best-performing games, Chicken Fox, Silver Lioness 4x and Eagle Sun go live in land-based casinos there in early 2021.
It will also further enhance Lightning Box’s presence in North America, having launched with British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) and Ruby Seven Studios’ social casinos earlier this year, as well as establishing a successful foothold in New Jersey’s online market.
Peter Causley, CEO and co-founder of Lightning Box, said: “This is another significant deal for us as we continue to expand on three fronts in North America: land-based, online and social.
“Konami has established a very strong customer base in the US and we’re really looking forward to the reaction of casino players, who can now enjoy our games in more places than ever.”
Victor Duarte, Senior Vice President & Chief Product & Strategy Officer at Konami Gaming, Inc., said: “Like us, Lightning Box has a proven track record in the United States, and it made sense to team up with them to deliver more great gaming content on our gaming machines.”
