Slot and mobile game developer Push Gaming has announced an agreement to acquire GSI, as it aims to increase its product delivery directly to operator partners.
GSI, which aims to facilitate content distribution to ignoring operators, boasts products like the Hive RGS and mesh aggregator. Push Gaming states that the purchase will provide additional flexibility and control over its technology, as well as the development of platform functionality, game design and distribution throughout the industry.
James Marshall, CEO and co-founder at Push Gaming, said of the deal: “The acquisition of GSI is a real game changer for us and we’re confident it will help us to become a key player within the industry.
“The launch of our own platform gives us full control of our game development, delivery and operator integrations. We will now also benefit from GSI’s extensive industry knowledge and experience, as well as their fantastic technical team.”
In addition, the GSI team, including industry pioneers Paul Evison and Paul Beattie, will also be seeing the acquisition carry significant experience in building scalable gaming technology in regulated markets.
As for the new development, Beattie and Evison said: “The acquisition of GSI is the perfect way for Push Gaming to take its delivery to the next level and take on the big suppliers.
“By combining the two teams we will be able to improve all aspects of our business, from game creation and design to distribution and operator relationships. It’s an exciting time for us, and we’re looking forward to a record-breaking year ahead.”
