QTech Forms Major Merger With Epic Media

QTech Games has announced what it lauds as a “major merger” with Epic Media games reseller, as it aims to improve the position of its site to market its igaming content across emerging territories.

Part of QTech’s digital offering will be made available under the terms of the reseller agreement, from slots and table games to instant winning, virtual sports, and live casino games.

QTech Games board chairman Markus Nasholm said of the merger agreement: “We’re thrilled to have finalised this milestone merger with Epic Media, and delighted to have the combined experience and expertise of Staffan and Ulf on board. To have two of the most successful people in the gambling join QTech Games is a ringing endorsement of all our team’s hard work in recent years.

“It’s been another year of sustained growth at QTech, and their partnership will prove invaluable as we grow further and faster in more international markets. It’s also a real validation that QTech adopted the correct strategy from the outset with our ‘two cornerstones’ model.

“Firstly, beyond the fantastic games, fully owning the technology sets QTech apart, which enables us to offer a number of flexible features which no competitor can rival. And secondly, outside of Asia, we’ve secured strongholds in virtually all the margin markets, demonstrating organic growth across channel and border.”

At the head of Epic Media is former development director at Yggdrasil and Evolution Gaming, Ulf Norder and NYX co-founder Staffan Lindgren, who now forms a key part of Scientific Games.

Lindgren commented: “I’ve been active in Asia for a long time but this is the ideal time to consolidate my hard-won experience in a more structured way with QTech Games. QTech is clearly the leader in Asia, and other key growth territories are quickly falling in line.

“Their propriety technology means they’re the only aggregator that is not just delivering fantastic games but also adding engaging features (such as QT Play’s AI-powered recommendation engine, alongside their tournament and jackpot elements) which make QTech’s position in the market unique. The rapid growth since the start has also been extremely impressive with yearly double-digit gains immediately taking the eye.”
