Games Global has signed an exclusive deal with UFC, the world’s premier mixed martial arts organization, for the development of branded content influenced by the sport.  The agreement was brokered by UFC’s licensing agency IMG

Games Global will produce unique UFC-themed slot titles over a three-year period, with the first release ready for a global rollout in July this year following an exclusive soft launch in May. 

“At UFC, we’re always looking for innovative ways to engage with our passionate fanbase around the world,” says Tracey Bleczinski, senior vice president, global consumer products, UFC. “This exciting new partnership with Games Global allows us to do just that by bringing the intensity and energy of the Octagon to life through unique UFC-themed slot titles. We believe that these games will be a hit with fight fans everywhere, and we are proud to be working with Games Global, a leading provider and distributor of iGaming content, to deliver this world-class entertainment experience.” 

The UFC-branded online slot games are digital versions of classic casino slot machine games that will feature various UFC themes and symbols, including UFC fighter likeness and images.  Players spin the reels and aim to match symbols and images across paylines to win prizes. 

Users will be able to play the games through their local betting platform in regions where regulated iGaming is available.  In the U.S., iGaming is available in select states, including Connecticut, Delaware, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.  Betting operators offering the UFC-branded digital slot games will be announced prior to launch. UFC will promote and support the launch of the games via its global marketing ecosystem. 

“Games Global is thrilled to announce this knockout partnership with UFC, bringing the Octagon to life across multiple epic slot titles in the next few years,” says Andy Booth, chief product officer, Games Global. “This exclusive deal allows us to develop UFC-themed online slots for UFC’s millions of fans who share our passion for action and excitement.
