Highlight Games to showcase virtual sports at G2E
9 October 2019
(PRESS RELEASE) -- London-based video virtual sports specialist Highlight Games Limited today announces that it will showcase its innovative NBA affiliated gaming products at the G2E Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas this month.
To date Highlight Games, in partnership with Spin Games, has signed contracts to supply NBA Last 60 to ten iGaming sites in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Set to debut in the U.S. in the 2019-20 NBA season, Highlight Games’ exclusively licensed NBA Last 90 scheduled game and NBA Last 60 on-demand game, both of which feature a vast archive of NBA highlights and footage from recent NBA seasons, will offer fans the opportunity to bet on simulated sports events powered by a random number generator. Players will have the ability to wager on various outcomes, including which team will win, who will score on the first possession and the total number of points scored by both teams during the last 90 or 60 seconds of a simulated matchup between two NBA teams. A vast archive of NBA highlights and footage will be randomly pulled from any matchup over recent seasons between the two teams, producing millions of possible outcomes.
Additionally, Highlight Games will be showcasing its new mobile on-property technical solution whereby players can bet on NBA Last 90 via mobile in sportsbooks, casinos and retail venues before watching the playout on dedicated screens. Additional products featuring exclusive footage from favorite U.S. sports leagues will be added to Highlight’s growing game portfolio in Q4 2019 and throughout 2020.
Tim Green, CEO, Highlight Games, said, “Highlight Games has an ambitious strategy for its exclusive virtual sports products in the US market, and what better place to showcase our compelling product portfolio than at G2E? With the imminent launch of NBA Last 60 and NBA Last 90 in the US, it’s an exciting time for Highlight as we deliver our unique games to a wider audience. Since launching SOCCERBET, which features archive footage from Europe’s top soccer teams, in Italy earlier this year, the game has consistently been the No. 1 performing virtual sports product in the market - and this is a success story that we look forward to replicating with our partners in the U.S. Highlight Games invites delegates to visit booth #1630 at G2E 2019 where they can view demos of Highlight’s exclusive games and new on-property technical solution while discussing how these next-generation sports betting products can drive revenues for their business.”
