QTech Games confirms Epic merger

QTech Games has announced a major merger with leading games reseller, Epic Media, in order to bolster its platform’s position at the forefront of the industry for taking the best online games to market across emerging territories.

Under the terms of the reseller agreement, every component of QTech’s digital one-stop-shop will be made available, from slots and table games to instant win, virtual sports and live casino games.

Epic Media is headed by industry trailblazers Staffan Lindgren and Ulf Norder, both of whom have a proven record for business development and scale-up success. Norder is a former Director of Development at Yggdrasil and Evolution Gaming, while Lindgren was a co-founder of NYX, which now forms a key part of Scientific Games.

Thanks to a recent partnership with Ezugi’s live-dealer portfolio, QTech Games now has an all-inclusive service for global operators, particularly across developing gaming spaces where demand for a comprehensive-yet-localized product set is paramount against a diverse backdrop of cultural trends and player preferences.

Markus Nasholm, Chairman of the Board at QTech Games, said: “We’re thrilled to have finalized this milestone merger with Epic Media, and delighted to have the combined experience and expertise of Staffan and Ulf on board. To have two of the most successful people in the gambling join QTech Games is a ringing endorsement of all our team’s hard work in recent years.

“It’s been another year of sustained growth at QTech, and their partnership will prove invaluable as we grow further and faster in more international markets. It’s also a real validation that QTech adopted the correct strategy from the outset with our ‘two cornerstones’ model. Firstly, beyond the fantastic games, fully owning the technology sets QTech apart, which enables us to offer a number of flexible features which no competitor can rival. And secondly, outside of Asia, we’ve secured strongholds in virtually all the margin markets, demonstrating organic growth across channel and border.”

Staffan Lindgren, Strategic Adviser to the Board, said: “I’ve been active in Asia for a long time but this is the ideal time to consolidate my hard-won experience in a more structured way with QTech Games. QTech is clearly the leader in Asia, and other key growth territories are quickly falling in line. Their propriety technology means they’re the only aggregator that is not just delivering fantastic games but also adding engaging features (such as QT Play’s AI-powered recommendation engine, alongside their Tournament and Jackpot elements) which make QTech’s position in the market unique. The rapid growth since the start has also been extremely impressed with yearly double-digit gains immediately taking the eye.”

Ulf Norder, VP / Director of sales, added: “For me, having previously been more active in Europe’s ‘margin markets’, this role is a perfect opportunity. QTech Games is the only company that has been active in all such markets. Indeed, they’re not just an Asian aggregator but are also attracting clients from all over the world. Latin America, Eastern Europe and they’re already in a position to stake a firm claim in the Indian market, stealing a match on the competition. Together, I’m confident we can be even more successful.”

As the fastest-growing distributor in Asia over the past few years, QTech’s platform boasts the most comprehensive gaming portfolio around, tailored for each region, with native mobile apps, powerful reporting and marketing tools, and 24/7 local-language support.
