Stake Casino announces partnership with Pragmatic Play

10 Jun 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Stake.com has grown at an incredible rate in the time that the casino brand has been operating, and Pragmatic Play is one of the biggest names in the industry when it comes to creating casino games such as live casino offerings and table games, as well as slots.

The two seem like a match made in heaven, and it makes sense for Stake Casino to be working with this huge iGaming developer. It was recently announced that Pragmatic would be working with the brand to create a more impressive offering, and potentially even helping Stake Casino’s growth to continue to rocket.

You might be wondering exactly what this is going to look like. Often, when a company such as Pragmatic Play agrees to work with another brand, they may just be licensing their games to them. Stake Casino clearly wanted a little more than that.

As such, an agreement was put in place to create an impressive live game studio, with 12 live tables for users, and an even more authentic and immersive casino experience. There are 10 blackjack tables being installed, as well as one for playing roulette and one for baccarat.

This may not be the last deal of its kind that Stake.com makes, as their offering continues to grow in Canada, South America and other markets such as New Zealand, meaning that they are looking for partners — such as Pragmatic Play — to help them to provide the gaming products needed for these brands.

Pragmatic Play has an impressive history working with some of the biggest brands in the industry, such as 888 and Mansion, so it makes perfect sense for them to be working with Stake.com, a unique casino that is already making waves in the industry.

Yossi Barzely, the Chief Business Development Officer at the iGaming developer, spoke about the partnership.

“We’re very pleased they’ve partnered with us to create a dedicated Live Casino studio, and we are excited by the opportunity to deliver an environment worthy of the Stake brand.”

Edward Craven, one of the founders of Stake Casino, also spoke about the deal and the commitment of Pragmatic to meet the needs of the casino.

“As a leading supplier in the Live Casino space, Pragmatic Play’s commitment to ensuring our every need is met was a key element in powering this deal. Its dedicated studios have performed well with major brands in regulated markets all over the world, and this is an important step forward for us.

“We look forward to it going live and really highlighting the unique capabilities of our brand.”

The partnership could grow even further into an impressive, long-term deal. Pragmatic Play currently releases up to six new slot games every single month. Few other development companies are so prolific, and this means that if things go well between the two brands, you can expect there to be even more partnerships and mutual growth.

It makes sense for Pragmatic to make this deal with Stake Casino too. The brand is pretty unique when it comes to online gaming, and this has proven to be popular with the casino, as the crypto gambling company has experienced unprecedented growth in its five-year history.

The company is operated by Medium Rare NV. In 2016, a company called Easygo was created by Ed Craven and Bijan Tehrani, and the two men would become the founders of Stake.com in the following year.

Stake doesn’t usually deal with any traditional currencies, instead, cryptocurrency is used by people to make deposits into their accounts. If the gamer should have any winnings as a result, then the balance is also withdrawn in crypto, and deposited back into the cryptocurrency wallet.

The company has become popular and launched in some locations without this crypto edge. For instance, in the UK, where the company is growing at a massive rate, they still deal with traditional fiat currencies. In countries like New Zealand, where online casinos are only legal if they’re hosted abroad, companies like Stake take up a great deal of the marketshare and are becoming increasingly popular amongst citizens.

The company has also grown into Asia and Latin America and has become synonymous with sports such as the UFC.

However, it is the traditional casino games and live streaming options that help to make the company so successful. With Pragmatic Play on board, options such as roulette, blackjack and slots will inevitably grow.

The option to play with live dealers has proven to be very popular and is one of the reasons for the casino’s rapid growth. On top of this, with more people switching to cryptocurrencies and having the option to use crypto in other areas of their lives, it makes sense that a casino would offer this as a payment option. Stake is one of the few casinos to have really taken full advantage of this.

The brand’s growth has also been driven by some very clever deals with ambassadors and sponsoring both sporting events and sports teams. Watford FC in the UK is one of the teams to have signed a sponsorship deal with the brand.

Cult Argentine footballer Sergio Agüero is also a brand ambassador, while Formula One driver Pietro Fittipaldi and his brother Enzo are brand ambassadors for the Brazilian market. Fascinatingly, Drake, who has a long-term affiliation with the brand, has signed up to do some exclusive live streaming events.

Pragmatic Play could prove to be the ideal partner for Stake, and there are a lot of similarities between the brands. Both are relatively new, with Pragmatic only having been launched in 2015. The company has close links to Ukraine and has been a huge supporter of recent humanitarian efforts. It has offices in Malta, UK, Gibraltar, India and Ukraine.

If you play a lot of online slots, then there is every chance that you will have already experienced some of their games.

The developer will be working with Stake on their live casino offering, as discussed, but there are a lot of other potential collaborations that may be approached in the future, especially as Pragmatic is known for iconic slots such as Gates of Olympus and Da Vinci’s Treasure — a game still proving popular many years after its release.

Pragmatic also creates bingo, card games and live casino games, and has made an amazing range that can be played in over 30 languages on both smartphones and other devices, so you can enjoy Pragmatic’s games wherever you go.

The games have proven popular as they are simple and straightforward to understand, with some really eye-catching graphics and fun sound effects. The needs of a slot game are pretty simple for most, but it is amazing how many games are still substandard.

Their games often also feature something called a “turbo spin”, which can provide you with access to quick bonuses.

As well as being a fantastic option for its choice of games, Pragmatic Play takes their responsibilities to the consumer very seriously. They are reviewed by independent gaming bodies to confirm their games are compliant. Gaming Laboratories International and Gaming Associates are two of the companies certifying and auditing the company.

Due to the fact that Pragmatic Play’s games are played in over 20 countries, they need to make sure that they are compliant with many different governing bodies, so they follow really strict protocols. Pragmatic Play offers excellent player protection, and even goes above and beyond what is legally required of them, verifying their internal processes with independent parties.

The company also has a long-standing commitment to and support for GambleAware and offers a lot of support to others in the hope of helping with issues such as problem gambling which can crop up.

The crypto casino goes a long way to support its players, not just in ensuring they have great games to play, but also in making sure that their offering is safe and that they have considered responsible gambling, both when it comes to staying in-line with regulations and doing the right thing by customers. Both Pragmatic Play and Stake Casino are perfectly aligned in this respect.
