The Rational Group, PokerStars’ holding company, has selected gaming company Leander Games to provide a casino gaming platform and game content for the Full Tilt Poker brand.
The companies have already begun the technical integration to leverage Leander’s LaGa gaming platform to launch games and a selection of games from Leander’s partners.
Full Tilt Poker now plans to leverage the LaGa platform in order to launch third-party content from a range of boutique game developers.
The website, which boasts more than 21 million registered players, is currently in the test phase of rolling out blackjack and roulette on the Full Tilt platform.
The Leader platform and selected games are expected to go live on Full Tilt Poker this spring.
Steven Matsell, Leander’s chief executive officer, described the agreement as a “landmark deal” for the company and one that could significantly enhance its presence in the industry.
“This partnership will change Leander’s position within the marketplace from “new kid on the block” to a serious contender,” he said.
“We are a small but dedicated team who live and breathe delivering the best games possible and this deal is testament to the quality of our offering. We are excited about the next few months as we work on our biggest venture to date.”
