Abzorba gamesIf you’re a lover of online multi-player social casino games chances are you’ve heard of, or are even playing games by, AbZorba Games. Their portfolio includes titles such as Live Blackjack21, Live Roulette, Live Poker and Hot2Slot which are all available on iOS and Android.

Founded in Athens, Greece, in 2011 Abzorba Games had one goal, to “create the best mobile multiplayer casino titles”. The recent announcement that they have been acquired by Greentube – the developer of casino and skill games, Poker, Bingo and free multiplayer 3D games for Novomatic Interactive – goes to prove that they have succeeded.

CEO of Greentube, Thomas Graf, said of the company that “Greentube is the European front runner in the area of Pay­to­Play Online Gaming Entertainment. We have a proven track record of successful acquisitions and integrations of Internet Gaming Technology start-ups on a global scale.” And that he sees the acquisition of AbZorba Games as a chance to “create new business opportunities” and “accelerate sustainable growth”.

Not a small claim given the massive reach of the Novomatic Group which already covers online, mobile and social gambling properties – which include such powerhouse games as The Book of Ra!

That being said AbZorba comes to the group with considerable clout of its own. Their Blackjack Live Casino, Live Blackjack21, is the “#1 downloaded live mobile multiplayer Blackjack on Google Play – over 1.5m casino gamers so far”.

“We believe the alliance will provide the best possible platform for our combined success,” said Andrew Hughes, CEO and co­founder of AbZorba Games.
