NASDAQ and Toronto-listed Bragg Gaming Group of Canada has entered into an agreement with Sega Sammy Creation Inc., of Japan to be the Asian slot and pachinko developer’s sole and exclusive content distributor worldwide for a select catalog of games for the online market. The deal has an initial duration of 3-years.
Sega Sammy Creation (SSC) is part of SEGA SAMMY Group, a holding company based in Japan and best known for its pachinko and pachislot machines businesses in Japan as well as globally for its SEGA video game consoles, arcade games, and content.
Internet gambling operators in the USA, the UK, and globally will have access to a unique selection of popular content from the otherwise land-based slots and pachinko developers. The tie-up bolsters Bragg’s content-led growth approach with products from an instantly recognizable brand name and furthers SSC’s global expansion goals significantly. One specific focus for the partnership will be the growing North American regulated online market.

Scott Winzeler, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sega Sammy Creation said: “We are delighted to partner with Bragg to bring our proven land-based content to a broader audience of iGaming players over the coming years. We believe the strength of Bragg’s RGS platform and their diverse array of well-known operator partners represent an attractive way to access global players wherever they are and whenever they want to interact with our strongest content.”
