Stakelogic, one of the most sought-after online casino content developers in the world, has acquired Serbian software developer Smart & Applied to further expand its in-house game development capabilities.
Smart & Applied was founded by Igor Marinkovich as a game development studio. The company has been working with Stakelogic for the past three years, making it an ideal acquisition target for a fast-growing slot developer.
Following the acquisition, Smart & Applied will be renamed Stakelogic Serbia with the appointment of Marinkovic as general manager of the division. The company will also move to a new modern office in the center of Belgrade later this year.
Stefan van den Oetelaar, CEO of Stakelogic, said:
“The acquisition of Smart & Applied really strengthens our internal development capabilities and will allow us to continue to grow with new content to the market on a regular basis. I am very pleased that Igor will lead Stakelogic Serbia. Over the years, we have become good friends, and his knowledge and experience are unmatched. "
Igor Marinkovic, CEO of Stakelogic Serbia, said:
“I am thrilled to be part of one of the fastest growing game providers in the industry and to play my part in driving the rapid growth of the business in the months and years to come. The relationship between Smart & Applied and Stakelogic has become incredibly strong as we work hand in hand on a daily basis over the years. The acquisition was the obvious next step, and I’m delighted that my team can continue to develop games called Stakelogic. "
Stakelogic is responsible for one of the most popular online casino content on the market, and its games are now available from over 500 operators worldwide. Last year, 48 classic slots and video slots were released, many of which are at the forefront of casino gaming lobbies.
