ELK Studios purchased by Scientific Games
Published: December 6, 2021
Scientific Games, a well-known online casino content developer, has obtained another prospective provider, ELK Studios.
This merger will be beneficial for both enterprises, for this merger should fortify the buyer’s production capacities and expand its game portfolio. Moreover, it will enable ELK to present its content to the budding North American market and conquer more jurisdictions.
The acquisition of ELK Studios is another vital step in Scientific Games’ expansion strategy and plans to bolster its digital presence. Furthermore, obtaining ELK’s in-house game library has boosted the company’s content creation capabilities.
The purchase will bring ELK’s popular releases to Scientific platforms, including Nitropolis 2, Katmandu Gold and Wild Toro 2. The accessible content will also include various tools, including the famous X-iter that enables you to jump into predefined modes.
Scientific Games will enter the Canadian and US markets while reinforcing its UK position with ELK’s original content.
ELK Studios has already partnered with many prominent operators across the industry. The studio will look to utilize Scientific Games’ resources, support in Canada and the US, and data analytics tools.
The company wants to penetrate new jurisdictions and experience stable growth, so the ambitions of the two enterprises are a perfect match. After obtaining Authentic Gaming and Lightning Box recently, Scientific Games has continued a string of successful partnerships.
Commenting on the new acquisition, Dylan Slaney, CEO iGaming at Scientific Games, stated:
We have had a strategic partnership with Elk Studios for a number of years, and its games have performed brilliantly across the OpenGaming platform. Elk is one of the most innovative and top-ranked studios in igaming. Their passion and enthusiasm for producing games of stand-out quality is infectious. They will play a pivotal role in helping us continue to provide players with even more immersive and engaging experiences.
