EveryMatrix has strengthened its North American expansion as the company signs a patent licence deal with International Game Technology.
The agreement between the two will witness EveryMatrix launch its catalogue of slots across the US, utilising IGT’s suite of patent games features, as well as others in the firm’s licensing programme.
“Signing a patent licence agreement with IGT was an important milestone in our US expansion,” noted Erik Nyman, President EveryMatrix Americas. “Through this agreement, EveryMatrix will have access to IGT’s game feature patents, allowing us to distribute our gaming content to partners across North America.”
Echoing the thoughts of Nyman, Stephen Calogero, VP and Deputy General Counsel, Global Gaming and Intellectual Property at IGT, added: “We are pleased to add EveryMatrix as a member of the game features licensing programme which has fostered unprecedented innovation for game mechanics across the industry.”
The agreement with IGT follows on from EveryMatrix disclosing an investment in igaming studio Jelly Entertainment earlier this year.
The investment – which marked the UK-based company’s second expenditure within this space, following Lady Luck Games – saw Jelly join the provider’s gaming aggregation platform, SlotMatrix, to build, manage and distribute their titles to a network of world wide operators.
