GTECH G2 is making a bid to grab more market share in the online software development arena, announcing recently that it had signed a multi-year licensing agreement with CBS to develop online casino games based on the popular TV series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami, and CSI: New York.
The games are anticipated to be very popular with American players (the shows are among the most popular in the U.S.). GTECH has a track record of licensed online games, having previously developed Sherlock Holmes and Chippendales themed online slots.
“The first CSI casino game will become available to GTECH G2 licensees in approved jurisdictions by the end of the year,” company reps noted in a news release.
“Everybody loves a great mystery complete with fingerprints, DNA traces and characters with shady alibis. No wonder CSI is an international sensation,” said Dominic Mansour, Vice President, Gaming Products, GTECH G2. “Thanks to our agreement with CBS Consumer Products, we can incorporate the intrigue and suspense of CSI within our interactive games to thrill game players and CSI fans throughout the world.”
In January’s ICE gaming show in London, GTECH G2 also previewed its upcoming slots games based on the popular video game Plants vs Zombies.
