1X2 Network becomes the first developer to launch an exclusive Megaways™ slot branded to an operator based in the Italian market.

Iron Dog Studio, a subsidiary of 1X2 Network, is thrilled to be the first developer to launch a MegawaysTM title exclusive branded to an operator in the established Italian market with operator partner Betsson and its StarCasino brand.

Branded Megaways™, an innovative concept from Iron Dog Studio, allows operators to create and launch their own Megaways™ slots that have been customised to capture the look, feel and identity of their brand.

Players at StarCasino will be the first in Italy to be able to play a Branded Megaways™ title, with the game encompassing the unique branding elements of the casino, including the popular StarCasino lady in gold suite who stands alongside the reels to welcome players to the game. This allows the Betsson-owned site to further established itself as a leader and firm player favourite in the market while also cementing Iron Dog Studio’s position as a tier one provider in another European market.
