The company is working on launching more than 50 international products, all of them featuring a well-known celebrity character.
Together with the Spanish, Colombian and Portuguese Celebrities series, famous personalities will also be introduced to Italy, Holland, Germany, Sweden, and Denmark.
MGA Games reveals its agreement with Recreativos Franco to distribute several of its most international and emblematic products, such as Santa Fe and Gnomos.
In 2022, MGA Games will also be launching “Magic Red Roulette”, an online version of the popular land-based game currently installed in more than 6,000 locations around the world.
Today, MGA Games presented its strategic plan for 2022, a roadmap marking the company’s route to becoming the international benchmark for the production and distribution of localised slot games for global operators. A plan that includes: the launch of more than 50 products next year, international strategic alliances, global exclusivity agreements, promotional actions, localised and imported land-base rules, and much more.
Joan Sanahuja, founder and CEO of MGA Games, opened the second edition of the online event MGA Games Day by welcoming attendees to the new MGA Games offices in the province of Barcelona – “A space that enhances the values and DNA of our company: innovation, professionalism, a vocation for service and teamwork.” Joan also emphasised that “at MGA Games, we will work to demonstrate that regulated gaming is both safe and prosperous, and we will equip all our operators with advanced tools and the best, localised content ”.
José Antonio Giacomelli, General Director of MGA Games, introduced the new products planned for 2022 and everything that the company has prepared to help operators continue growing with their products.
The plan for next year is to create and certify more than 50 international titles with world-class IPs (Intellectual Property), as we’ve done this year with celebrities Paolo Futre and Sylvia Geersen. What’s more and together with the Spanish, Colombian, and Portuguese Celebrities series, we will also be bringing famous personalities to Italy, Holland, Germany, Sweden, and Denmark.
“We have taken the product a step further with games such as Golden Throne, The Last Gladiator and Cleopatra, and our strategy is to localise all the games for each of the markets we are going to penetrate,” said Giacomelli.
In 2021, MGA Games landed in Portugal, where they signed agreements with 75% of operators and where the company’s Portuguese Celebrities such as Paulo Futre, Anna Catharina, Chef Jackal, among others, are already live with one of the leading operators, Pokerstars.
According to Sara Gómez, MGA Games Sales Manager, the next destination is the Netherlands, “where we have everything ready to launch with Microgaming, Pariplay, Oryx and Leander, among others.” In parallel, we are also working on the documentation necessary to bring the MGA Games product to Italy, where agreements have already been signed with 5 major operators. We are also working to achieve the same for Sweden, Denmark and Germany.
“We will be working with the strategy that has helped us succeed so well in Spain and will continue our expansion by replicating this success in all regulated countries in Europe, starting with the certification of more than 30 games for these new jurisdictions,” said Sara Gómez
All this without forgetting the Spanish market where MGA Games stands out as the leading content provider with more than 95% of national online casinos featuring their slot games. In 2022, the company will be increasing its commitment to the national market with 26 new 3-reel Spanish Celebrities products, compared to 18 in 2021. And are delighted to be featuring new celebrities such as Eugenio, Poli Díaz, Sevilla and Mario Vaquerizo, among many more.
Another part of the product strategy presented at MGA Games Day was the commercialisation of the new table game, the “Grand Croupier Roulette”, with its own 3D engine, and whose first international versions are to feature 5 digitally recreated well-known celebrities.
The launch of “Magic Red Roulette” was also announced. Originally developed by the company SMI, manufacturers of the land-based version, and currently installed in more than 6,000 locations around the world, this roulette game will be made available online through the MGA Games platform.
“With these two games and all the additional versions that we have prepared, we are sure that our international roulette line will be an ideal complement for casino operators”, said José Antonio Giacomelli.
During the session, MGA Games also revealed one of the collaboration agreements that will come to fruition in 2022 with the company Recreativos Franco, which recently merged with the Orenes Group. This alliance will allow MGA Games to exclusively distribute six of its iconic and most international land-based products: Gnomes, Santa Fe, Neopolis, RF Angels, Bowling and Burlesque.
The MGA Games account management team, in charge of personalised customer service, and represented by Belén Serano and Gerard Martínez, presented the actions and promotions that the company will carry out from next year. Actions centralised via the new website, which the company has designed as a practical and useful tool for operators.
In the last part of MGA Games Day, Roberto Ayala, R&D Director OF MGA Games, and his team explained in more detail the expansion of the slot game catalogue with Megaways – a high-performance international product. MGA Games will be personalising the game with its celebrities and including it in their 5-reel casino slot game offering.
The day was brought to an end with words of thanks from Joan Sanahuja, who said: “At MGA Games, we continue to innovate and place the user at the center of all we develop. I cannot be more proud of our games and of our team who, with their effort and enthusiasm, have made all of this possible.”
