Anyone who regularly frequents Dragonfish sites will be very familiar with Eyecon games, as their slots and instant win games are available at all sites on the network.Popular titles like Fluffy Favourites and Irish Luck, which are aimed away from the high rollers and more at the softer side of online gaming, have helped the provider develop a strong reputation.Over the last 12 months, Eyecon games have started to become available at Playtech sites, and now we can all expect to see many more games from the provider at these sites, as Playtech has acquired Eyecon in a £50 million deal.
After a strong couple of years that have included the release of popular series including Age of Gods and Batman, Playtech is cutting a niche for itself in offering edgy content.This makes the acquisition of Eyecon very sensible because the gentler subject matter of their games creates far more diversity within the Playtech portfolio.
Speaking of the deal, Mor Weizer, CEO of Playtech said:“We are delighted to continue the execution of our acquisition strategy by welcoming Eyecon to the Playtech Group. Eyecon adds premium quality games to Playtech’s stable of industry leading content. We look forward to working with the Eyecon team who will bring robust technology and further industry expertise to the Playtech family.”Founder of Eyecon, Scott Murray, who will be staying on for at least three years to oversee the integration, added:“I am delighted that Eyecon will be joining into the Playtech family.“I would like to express my gratitude to the many talented people who have worked so hard over the last 20 years to make Eyecon a success. We look forward to building upon Eyecon’s reputation for delivering gaming excellence and taking the next step in development with Playtech.”
