PartyCasino announces new exclusivity agreement with Skywind Group to release the La Casa de Papel themed slot

PartyCasino, the leading casino brand operated by GVC Holdings, is pleased to announce it has won the exclusive rights to offer a brand new slot game themed on hit Spanish TV Series, La Casa de Papel, for a three-months period. PartyCasino is offering the game in Spain alongside other brands in the GVC portfolio – the first time it has been available anywhere in the world.

The brand new slot game La Casa de Papel Classico is based on the worldwide hit TV series, La Casa De Papel, known as Money Heist in other territories. The original serie, whose fourth season will launch next month, is based on “The Professor”, a criminal mastermind and his eight accomplices, who plan to pull off the biggest heist in history by printing and stealing billions of euros in the Royal Mint of Spain.

La Casa de Papel Classico is a classic 3-reel, 1-line slot game with a 96.4% RTP and was created by the Skywind Group, a premium content provider for the iGaming industry. In the game, a player can join key La Casa De Papel characters, such as Tokyo and Nairobi, as they enter Spain’s La Fábrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre, to pull off the heist of the century.

The launch of La Casa de Papel Classico slot game is being announced to the public via a multichannel advertising campaign, including Spanish TV and multiple digital touchpoints.

Commenting on the announcement, Alessandro De Stasio, Head of PartyCasino at GVC, said: “We are thrilled to be the only operator group offering the new La Casa De Papel Classico slot game to Spanish players. It’s an exciting, adrenaline-fuelled addition to our world of online games, and it perfectly captures the drama and personality of the worldwide TV hit.

“This exclusive licence represents an excellent opportunity for PartyCasino to expand our offering to our Spanish-based customers who, since our market launch in July 2019, have had the opportunity to enjoy PartyCasino’s unique entertainment proposition. At PartyCasino, we work very hard to combine recreational, fun-packed gameplay and entertainment, together with GVC’s industry-leading proprietary technology platform and an unparalleled product offer.”

“Our partnership with GVC has been getting stronger, and we are dedicated to supplying them with the high-quality games they have come to expect of us. We are really proud of La Casa De Papel Clasico game. Acquiring the IP for the game was a straightforward step for us, as it directly speaks to our strategy of producing market-specific games. We have produced a three-reels game that is popular in Spain, together with the La Casa De Papel theme, cool features,and video clips from the TV series. It is going to be a huge hit.” said Skywind Group Managing Director, Oren Cohen Shwartz.
