Black Cow and HITSqwad evolving Jackpots

By Dave Sawyer, Last updated Nov 20, 2023

Black Cow Technology, the provider of the Open Gaming Architecture (OGA): an advanced software platform that empowers operators and suppliers to innovate and take ownership of the experiences they provide to players, has hit the jackpot with its latest partnership.

Under the deal, jackpot game developer HITSqwad is using Black Cow’s innovative OGA Jackpots platform to build custom, secure jackpot engines that support unique in-game and reporting features across its portfolio of jackpot slots and games.

OGA Jackpots is a fully customisable jackpot server for B2B suppliers and aggregators, as well as B2C operators, and allows them to create any kind of jackpot to sit on top of any game offered to players.

Black Cow’s OGA Side-Bet framework has also allowed HITSqwad to develop its first Blackjack Side Bet title, with a soon-to-launch jackpot-based side bet in the pipeline.

But that’s just the start – HITSqwad is using OGA Jackpots to pack its product roadmap with several new and exciting jackpot features that will be delivered over the coming months as the studio continues to establish itself as one of the leaders in jackpot content.

The deal builds on the existing partnership between Black Cow and HITSqwad, with Black Cow having developed the studio’s game engines using its smart Jackpot Game Development Kit.

Max Francis, Founder of Black Cow Technology, said: “We love working with HITSqwad – it is a perfect example of an organisation being enabled to push boundaries because of OGA’s flexibility, reliability and speed of development.”

“What HITSqwad is doing with our OGA Jackpot platform is incredible and is exactly what the technology has been designed to do. And that is the freedom for studios (and operators) to think big and then deliver a great product and a compelling experience to the player.”

“We already have a successful partnership with HITSqwad which used our GDK for its game engine, but this extended agreement allows both parties to really hit the jackpot.”

Charl Geyser, CEO at HITSqwad, added: “We have bold ambitions to become the leader in jackpot content, but we need smart technology to bring our ideas and concepts to life. In Black Cow and its OGA Jackpots platform, we have the tools we need to do this.”

“We have been working with Black Cow for some time now, and the scope and scale of its technologies are second to none. Black Cow is a very important partner for us, and we look forward to continued success as we keep bringing new and exciting jackpot experiences to the market.”
