So soon after the announcement that Leander Games has partnered with leading software giants Gaming Technology Solutions (GTS) and OpenBet, Leander Games has today officially announced that it has signed a deal with heavy metal band – Megadeth. This is a landmark deal for Leander Games, securing the exclusive worldwide rights to develop Megadeth branded games for both the online and landbased industry.

Ramiro Atucha, Founder and CEO of Leander Games said, “Providing licensed games for a phenomenal brand such as Megadeth is a really exciting proposition for us. Drawing on the bands staggering worldwide popularity and in keeping with their image, we have developed a game that will truly engage players on a global scale. We have an in house team that specialise in providing the most thrilling mathematics and advanced graphics with most of the creative team specialising in 2D, 3D and motion art, therefore the Megadeth slot game player experience is unparalleled.”

Megadeth was founded in 1983 and during this time, has sold over 25 million albums worldwide, with five consecutive albums being certified platinum or multi-platinum in the USA. The band is considered an early pioneer of thrash metal which fits the Leander Games ethos perfectly, as the innovative games developer continues to be a pioneer of slot games for both the online and land based casino industry.

Speaking on behalf of the band, founder of Megadeth Dave Mustaine, said, “We have an amazing fan base that is incredibly loyal to our music and everything we stand for and we never dreamed that one day we would have a “Megadeth” slot game for fans to play. However with the assistance of Leander Games’ vision and creativity, we have produced a fantastic game that will appeal to anyone that already appreciates the band, whilst also giving us an opportunity to continue widening our appeal to a new casino playing audience.”
