Blueprint Gaming, part of the Gauselmann Group, has acquired UK-based games developer Project Coin Limited in a deal which significantly expands its online and retail offering.
The acquisition will enable Blueprint Gaming to strengthen and diversify its already robust game portfolio, with Project Coin’s titles set to be adapted for the online market. This exciting merger will enable Blueprint to broaden it’s 2019 roadmap offering and appeal to an even wider cross-market audience.
As part of the agreement, the developer’s slots and poker games, including the hugely popular Mega Bars™ and Find the Lady Poker™, will be integrated onto Blueprint’s Remote Gaming Server, as well as the Gauselmann Group’s leading hardware solutions.
The developer has firmly established itself as a pioneer within the gambling industry, with more than 30 years’ experience in the UK retail market.
Project Coin’s management team will continue to lead the day-to-day activities at their south west London studio, while the design and development departments from both companies will be forming a close and collaborative relationship with the intention of bringing more unique game innovation to the online and retail sectors.
Sascha Blodau, Gauselmann Group UK General Manager, said: “Project Coin has a strong reputation within the UK retail space for delivering high-quality games and we’re thrilled to welcome them to the Blueprint Gaming family. We look forward to bringing our online and retail operating partners a different and complimentary style of game. The Gauselmann Group continues to invest in all aspects of the UK, and this acquisition will bolster our recent organic growth.”
Tony Boulton, Managing Director of Project Coin, said: “I am excited about the next phase in Project Coin’s development as a part of the Gauselmann Group. The scale, support and added distribution will enable us to grow and to introduce our proven games to an online audience.”
