Lightning Box Enters West Virginia with SG Digital
Lightning Box, an Australian slots provider, will roll out for the first time its top titles in West Virginia, entering the market with its distribution partner SG Digital, the online gaming division of Scientific Games.
Two of its hit titles, Chicken Fox and Lightning Horseman, will become available in the state. The provider went live in the US with its online casino titles in New Jersey via Amaya in 2014 and then launched its slot games with SG Digital in Pennsylvania in November 2020 and Michigan in January 2021. Lightning Box’s content is already popular among American players.
Lightning Box CEO and co-founder Peter Causley said that he was excited that the company met the market requirements of the state’s regulations.
Lightning Box extends its reach across the US
Causley said that Lightning Box’s games are popular not only among American players but also social casino operators, as well. He said he is pleased that operators in West Virginia will now have the chance to enjoy its online products.
With its established operators, West Virginia offers Lightning Box and its distribution partner SG Digital new opportunities. SG Digital partnership director Steve Mayers said that, after the successful launches in other US markets, the company is excited to launch its online offering in West Virginia and bring its immersive experience to its players. The company anticipates the opportunity to strengthen its partnership with Lightning Box.
Lightning Box offers its titles to 32Red Casino
Lightning Box keeps its momentum on a global scale. Recently, 32Red Casino, a British gaming company, extended its portfolio with Lightning Box’s offering. The integration became possible thanks to Microgaming’s aggregation deal. 33Red players gained access to hot titles like Golden Yak and Lioness4x.
Lightning Box signed its partnership deal with Scientific Games in 2020. Since then, the company has strengthened its presence in the US market.
