Fantasma has taken its gaming suite live in the United States after detailing that its portfolio will debut exclusively on the BetMGM Casino platform in Michigan and West Virginia.

Under the terms of the agreement, the first games to be made available to players across the two regions are Wins of Nautilus Megaways and Bounty Showdown, with additional titles to follow.

Fredrik Johansson, Founder and CEO at Fantasma Games, explained: “This is a milestone moment for Fantasma Games and something we have been working on for almost three years, marking our hotly anticipated arrival in the fast-growing US market. 

“Each of our games has been designed to deliver experiences beyond gambling and this is achieved by combining thrilling themes with edge-of-your-seat gameplay. 

“To enter the US market in Michigan and West Virginia with BetMGM a leading sports betting and igaming operator, is a testament that our games can attract the interest necessary for the US market, on top of all the proven markets in Europe. 

“We look forward to BetMGM’s players enjoying the high levels of excitement and entertainment that our slots deliver.”

Wins of Nautilus Megaways, currently available in West Virginia and from May 12 in Michigan, takes inspiration from Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and sees players embark on an underwater adventure. 

Following this, Bounty Showdown, which debuted last week in Michigan and will be available from May 12 in West Virginia, invites players to a Wild West showdown.

Oliver Bartlett, Director of Gaming at BetMGM, noted: “BetMGM, the top online casino operator in the United States, continually invests in its industry-best games portfolio.

“We’re pleased to introduce our players to Fantasma Games, exclusively beginning in Michigan and West Virginia.”

All Fantasma’s slots will be delivered to BetMGM via the content aggregation platform of the studio’s US distribution partner, Light & Wonder.

Steve Mayes, Director of Partnerships at Light & Wonder, added: “Fantasma Games is home to a creative team that produces highly entertaining and immersive games, and has already built a strong reputation among our OpenGaming operator partners. 

“Providing studios with routes into important markets such as those in the US, in conjunction with an operator brand as strong as BetMGM, is a key part of our mission and we firmly believe players in Michigan and West Virginia will love the content on offer.”
