Sydney-based independent video slots developer and multi-channel supplier, Lightning Box Games has been given the go-ahead to enter the Portuguese market. The venture will be facilitated through the SG Digital platform which will see to it that Lightning Box’s brand of fun and exciting slots titles are accessible to Portugal-based slots lovers.
Lightning Box’s efforts to the penetrate the Portuguese market paid off when the company was granted a license by the Serviço de Regulação e Inspeção de Jogos (SIRJ), Portugal’s leading regulatory body. The license was a green light for the slot developer to go ahead with a planned release of nine new games that are certainly bound to catch the attention of the Portuguese gambling market.
The rollout of the slots developer’s games will happen in phases with the first wave of releases across the market being the: Silver Lion, Stellar Jackpots-Chilli Gold x2, Stellar Jackpots-Serengeti Lions, Stellar Jackpots-More Monkeys, Respin Rhino, Dolphin Gold, Redroo, Mild Rockers and Blazing Goddess.
As it stands, having been allowed to pursue its operation in the country, Lightning Box has been in a number of related distribution-related talks with some of the most notable operators in the country.
“We are thrilled to be given the opportunity to expand our footprint into Portugal, an online market that could present a number of new operator partnerships for us. We look forward to announcing those partnerships and the release of more games to the Portuguese market in due course,” said Peter Causley, Lightning Box’s co-founder and Managing Director.
The Lightning Box brand was founded in 2004 by David Little and Peter Causley and since then it has managed to produce a series of some of the most highly commercially successful games like Dragon Palace, Astro Car, Five Pirates and Frogs ‘n Flies. All these games still remain to be some of the most popular titles in many places and they continue to be regularly updated in order to give the customers the best possible experience.
This move could just the beginning for the Portuguese gambling market as they might soon be able to enjoy the slot maker’s entire portfolio of games. SG Digital – mentioned earlier – is one of the Lightning Box’s partners and a major games aggregator whose platform will be used by Lightning Box to offer Portuguese player the thrills of the nine new slots. Also, by acquiring the license from Serviço de Regulação e Inspeção de Jogos Lightning Box will be operating in accordance to the law and in addition to the fact that its games are regularly checked for fairness by independent auditors, the platform offers the best possible slot experience one can find anywhere in the world.
