The Games Company launches two exclusive World Cup™ games

London, 19th June 2014

The Games Company, a new London based slot games supplier, has launched two games in time for the FIFA World Cup™. The games - Football Crazy and Road to Rio – have been made exclusively available through the Odobo platform to one of their significant operator partners.

The Games Company’s growing pipeline of other mobile and desktop titles is being made available to all operators initially via the Odobo platform, then via Leander, GTS and others.

The Games Company chose to collaborate with the Odobo platform over the last few months as the best option for delivering the two games on time. Hans Winkelmann, Managing Director said,

"Odobo have a great platform, excellent technology and the team have proven that they can deliver against a very tight deadline. Together we can deliver a high quality desktop experience on to all players’ mobile devices."

Julian Jarvis, Chief Business Affairs Officer of Odobo, said,

"It has been a pleasure to work with The Games Company - the World Cup™ is another great opportunity to prove our technology and speed to market."

The Games Company was founded in 2013 by former bwin.party Games Studio team, Hans Winkelmann and Ian Matthews. They produced over 50 slots for PartyCasino and bwin, including titles such as: Kung Food, The Circus and Sin City.

A private funding round – from industry veterans – was closed last year, since then the product line and team has been expanded. The experienced HTML5 team is working with a number of partners, and will be releasing mobile and desktop games over the coming months.
