1x2gaming brokers virtual sports partnership with Leap-Gaming

Software company 1x2gaming has joined forces with games developer Leap-Gaming to launch a new turnkey graphical virtual sports product.

Under the strategic partnership, the new product will be broadcast throughout the 1x2gaming platform before being expanded onto its platform partners.

The product will utilise Leap-Gaming’s 3D games’ generation platform as well as 1x2gaming’s established API.

The initial release includes virtual horse racing, greyhounds, velodrome cycling and speedway, with tennis and trotting to be added later this year and football joining the product in early 2016.

The product also features a fully responsive and customisable design, which is tailored for all platforms including, mobile, desktop and retail point of sale.

“The addition of a graphical Virtual sports product is a huge step for 1x2gaming, and opens up a new and exciting frontier for us as a company,” 1x2gaming chief marketing officer Kevin Reid said.

“We feel that this product is perfectly complementary to data driven virtual sports games, which have been hugely successful since launch in 2002.”

Yariv Lissauer, chief executive of Leap-Gaming, added: “The solution is the most wholesome VS application available in the market today and will continue to constantly evolve, while introducing genuine innovation to this domain.

“This partnership releases massive synergies as it allows both companies to play to their respective strengths: Leap – it’s superb graphic and client side development capabilities; and 1x2gaming – its robust server side, data driven VS management and extensive distribution network.”
