The Gauselmann Group confirmed the announcement this week saying the move will strengthen its position as one of the top leading slot suppliers in the industry.
Livewire Gaming is a Doncaster-based company that has built its reputation for its creation of Category C, B3, D and B4 games across the UK market. All of Livewire’s content is compatible with Blueprint Gaming. Livewire joins the other additions Blueprint has added to tis portfolio family; Games Warehouse and Project Coin. Thanks to the new acquisition deal Blueprint will see a significant boost in their land-based development capabilities.
Terms of the agreement will see Livewire remaining as an independent games studio that will focus on the development of land-based games. Livewire’s Director, Alan Claypole, will continue his leadership with the company.
Sascha Blodau, the Gauselmann Group’s UK General Manager commented on the new acquirement saying they are thrilled to officially welcome Livewire’s Director Alan Claypole to the team and company. Blodau added this merger makes perfect sense for both companies especially since Livewire and Blueprint have a close partnership and relationship for the past few years. The company looks forward to working with Livewire and building on their already successful partnership in the future.
