Mohawk Online Limited (Mohawk Online) is pleased to announce it will be the first licensee to launch Playtech’s latest portfolio of DC Super Hero-branded casino slots in Canada.
Mohawk Online’s Sportsinteraction.com e-gaming site is the first Canadian regulated brand to launch Playtech’s range of new premium branded slots.
Playtech has an exclusive licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, to create a wide range of online slot games based on the studio’s iconic DC-branded film and television properties.
This includes 1960s Batman Classic TV Series and the Superman (1978), Superman II (1980), Green Lantern (2011) and Man of Steel (2013) features, to name just a few. In February of this year Playtech extended this agreement, and will also produce a number of games based on more of Warner Bros. Pictures’ tentpole films, including The Dark Knight Trilogy; Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and more.
“This is truly a landmark achievement for Mohawk Online, it is exciting to occupy the same stage as international corporations such as Playtech and Warner Bros. Pictures.”
– Grand Chief of the Mohawk Council of Kahnawake Joseph Norton.
The first games launched on Sportsinteraction.com feature the iconic characters and moments from the 1960s Batman TV Series, offering exciting slot games such as Batman & The Joker Jewels, Batman & Catwoman Cash, Batman & The Penguin Prize, Batman & The Batgirl Bonanza, Batman & The Riddler Riches, and Batman & Mr. Freeze Fortune.
Each new Playtech game under this announcement is linked to a DC Super Heroes-branded Jackpot with a series of tiered jackpots also available to players, ensuring impressive prize payouts as well as a wide range of prizes across a variety of win levels.
Dean Montour, CEO, Mohawk Online Limited, said: “We are delighted to be the first out of the gate in Canada in offering this portfolio of Playtech premium branded slots on Sportsinteraction.com.
“As a First Nation-owned socio-economic initiative and recreational gaming site operating some of the lowest deposit and bet limits in Canada, responsible gaming is central to how we operate. As the world’s leading supplier of casino games, Playtech is an ideal partner – a reputable, publicly listed UK company that is highly-regulated and trusted the world over, with its branded content instantly recognizable and great fun to play.”
James Frendo, Casino Director, Playtech, said: “These games are among our best-performing premium branded titles, linked to our industry-leading progressive jackpots and, due to their success and customer response, we plan to continue adding DC-branded games to our portfolio in the coming years.”
