Spearhead Studios to capitalize on booming Dutch iGaming market via certification
In an effort to capitalize on the Dutch market’s interest in its premium, mobile-optimized HTML5 casino games, Spearhead Studios has secured local certification for its proprietary casino content and remote game server (RGS) platform.
Launched by EveryMatrix in November 2019, according to the Spain-based studio, the Netherlands is set to become “a lucrative online gambling market in the regulated European space” for operators and suppliers alike, with the Dutch gaming regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) reporting that the northwestern European country is purportedly estimated to reach €1.1bn ($1.25bn) in 2024.
One of the industry’s fastest-growing gaming suppliers, the real-money game production studio is reportedly releasing an average of eight new titles a month. And in addition to the developer’s popular slots such as the sequel to its high-stakes adventure Lara Jones is Cleopatra and Wild Gold, Spearhead is expected to release its new, highly anticipated branded game, John Daly – Spin It And Win It, on February 3, 2022.
Based on the American golf icon, the feature-packed, 5-reel 3-row video slot provides a trio of engaging base game modifying features, three exciting bonus features, and a max win of more than 22,000x.
In addition to its own proprietary content, the firm is also the exclusive distributor of a number of other leading developers, including Lady Luck Games, JVL, FunFair Games and Armadillo Studios. Its games are certified in markets across Europe and Latin America, with certification in Colombia in June 2020, and looks to gain a foothold in the U.S. via New Jersey.
Managing Director for Spearhead Studios, Mathias Larsson explained that the company is “always quick to enter new and profitable markets.”
Currently present in 14 jurisdictions, including the UK market, courtesy of the Gambling Commission, Larsson says they are “always looking for the next opportunity” to expand their reach. “The Dutch market shows significant interest for our games, and we are ready to capitalize on that by getting certified in the region.”
Launched by EveryMatrix in 2018, the Marbella-headquartered studio, which creates its games via the company’s remote gaming server, RGS Matrix, has since its founding unveiled a spate of slots and table games within its portfolio, including popular titles such as Blue Diamond Book, Book of the Princess, and Book of Souls II: El Dorado, the sequel to its best-performing title in 2019, which stars British archeologist turned treasure hunter, Lara Jones. Its content is live with 100+ online casino operators on more than 200 brands.
Royal Crown sequel:
Just before ringing in the New Year, Spearhead released the second iteration of its Royal Crown video slot, after the original version experienced incredible success across markets and operators. Royal Crown 2 Respins is a 5×3, 5-line game with an RTP of 95.52 percent, boasting unique scatters, a respins feature and a max win of up to 2,100x.
