June 22, 2009 (CAP Newswire) — Continuing to build on the incredible popularity of all things Marvel, gaming software developer CryptoLogic has announced the extension of its exclusive licensing agreement with the company, officials recently announced.
Under the terms of this extension, CryptoLogic will retain the exclusive rights to create and distribute Internet casino games based on Marvel’s comic book characters through 2013.
This marks the third such contract extension for the two companies, who have enjoyed great success bringing some of the comic book world’s most popular characters — including Spider-Man, Hulk, the X-Men, and many more — to the world of online gambling.
“CryptoLogic’s exclusive partnership with Marvel has been daringly different for our industry — as together we have brought some of the world’s favourite characters to the world’s top Internet casinos,” said Brian Hadfield, CryptoLogic’s President and CEO. “It’s exciting to extend a deal that has been mutually successful and profitable, and to strengthen CryptoLogic’s competitive advantage in the branded gaming space. We look forward to working with Marvel to deliver an even more compelling experience for every player, every day.”
Since 2005, CryptoLogic has launched more than 17 slot games featuring classic Marvel Super Heroes. That’s an impressive addition to the company’s stable of more than 280 total games. CryptoLogic has earned rave reviews from industry peers, recently taking home the 2009 Gambling Online Magazine’s Top Casino Software award for the fourth consecutive year.
