Friday May 22,2015 : NEW NETENT AGREEMENT GIVES ACCESS TO THE UNITED STATES MARKET
NetEnt signs key patent cross-license agreement with IGT.
IGT, which claims to hold the largest portfolio of slot game feature patents in North America, has reached IP patent cross-licence agreement for the North American market with NetEnt, the Swedish online gambling content provider.
The agreement enables NetEnt to offer games in North America that include any of the patented game features contained in the IGT portfolio, and signing this IP patent cross-license agreement is a big step forward in the process of an entry for NetEnt into the North American market, a NetEnt spokesman said Friday.
Björn Krantz, managing director NetEnt Americas LLC, said, “IGT is a key partner for NetEnt in its expansion into North America, and we are really pleased that we’ll have access to all of IGT’s game feature patents for our North American multichannel games offering.”
