This move will see Raw differentiating its content and features to reach Leander’s customer base across Europe and South America.

Tom Wood, Raw CEO, commented: “This is an amazing opportunity to bring together our SuperSlice innovation with one of the best distribution platforms in the industry along, with access to the studio that is known for great titles like Ave Caesar and Alibaba and the Forty Thieves.

“After meeting with Leander management, we felt the immediate cultural connection, identified their deep skillset in platform and distribution, as well as the clear synergies we both bring in game development making Raw a new force to reckon within content and game distribution.”

The aim of the acquisition is to deliver content to more regulated markets and will see Raw’s products being shared across the Leander Games platform which is currently live in 13 regulated markets. 

Steven Matsell, Leander CEO, said: “We are very excited to become a part of the Raw family and start the next chapter in Leander by marrying Raw’s innovative vision with our market-leading platform as well as the integration of the game teams to deliver even more innovative, ground-breaking content.

“This strengthens our dedication to our customers and partners, offering new games and platform innovations which are sure to shake up the market. We look forward to being a part of Raw and supporting the fight against industry monotony. We welcome new operators and studios that are ready to join as well.”

Throughout the process, Oakvale Capital LLP acted as the financial advisor to Leander.

This is Raw’s first acquisition; however, the company is now searching for additional opportunities to encourage further expansion.
