Posted 1/19/11 : Major software providers license globally famous brands
Online slots fans can look forward to some exciting new games with familiar and famous themes, hopefully in the near future.
CBS Consumer Products has announced the signing of three licensing agreements to bring some of its top properties to online casino games.
Top software providers G-TechG2, IGT and WMS were the successful applicants, and will develop a range of games featuring the "CSI" scientific crime busters and the futuristic "Star Trek" this year.
G-Tech was awarded the licence for "CSI;" IGT acquired licensing for Star Trek – the 2009 movie; and WMS will handle "Star Trek," – the original TV series.
IGT has been fast off the mark with its licence, announcing that it will be showing demos of its Star Trek game at ICEi Totally Gaming in London next week.
"This is a great area of growth for our business, and these deals lay the foundation to bring more of our brands to online casino gaming," said Liz Kalodner, executive vice president and general manager of CBS Consumer Products.
