Full Tilt Add Real Money Slots Games to Online Poker Client
Full Tilt Poker has expanded its real money casino games offering with the addition of slots content to the online poker client.
The new games join blackjack and roulette, which went live in January 2014. The real money gambling games are still being tested in only select markets, including the UK, pokerfuse understands.
Eight slots games have launched, accessible under a new “Casino” tab in the client. Blackjack and Roulette remain accessible from both the poker and casino tabs.
The games are the result of a partnership with software developer Leander Games. Its introduction marks the first time third party content has been added to a Rational Group product.
“This partnership will change Leander’s position within the marketplace from 'new kid on the block’ to a serious contender,” Leander CEO Steven Matsell stated at the time.
Further expansion into real money gambling is expected. A recently announced partnership with Net Entertainment AB will bring further gaming content, with a focus on mobile.
Rational Group is also considering the global sportsbetting market. Full Tilt hired former Betfair exec Sam Hobcraft to head Full Tilt’s casino side last October and, according to a report earlier in the month, is advertising for a “Head of Sportsbook Customer Experience” role.
