CORE Gaming, the world-leading HTML5 gambling software house, has sealed a landmark partnership with MotoGP™ organiser and official rights-holder Dorna Sports S.L, to develop a MotoGP-branded Virtual Sports game for the most exciting two-wheeled series in the world.
The on-demand title will utilise the CORE HTML5 framework and innovative WebGL 3D browser technology, which has been already been demonstrated to the public successfully through a Virtual Sports partnership with Sky Vegas.
With household names such as multiple world champions Jorge Lorenzo, Valentino Rossi, Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa, the world’s premier motorcycle-racing series has a loyal following of tens of millions of fans across the globe. To complement this groundbreaking partnership, Sam Lowes, one of MotoGP’s up-and-coming British riders, will serve as a CORE Gaming brand ambassador through to 2017. Lowes will be on the Storm stand (N1, 243) from 12-1pm at ICE this Tuesday, February 2.
Justin Chamberlain, Chief Executive of CORE Gaming, said: “This partnership with Dorna Sports offers our customers the chance to tap into MotoGP, a globally-recognised and revered brand. “MotoGP is massively popular worldwide, and you only need to see one race packed full of incidents, speed and skill to see why that’s the case. Our goal is to bring that same high-octane action into our Virtual Sports portfolio and to keep pushing boundaries in the industry.”
Pau Serracanta, Managing Director of Dorna’s Commercial Area, added: “Reaching this agreement with CORE Gaming is an important step into the world of online gambling, with its Virtual Sports game giving users the chance to enjoy MotoGP on a whole new level, immersing them even further into the sport they love.
“I look forward to this new partnership with CORE Gaming and eagerly await the game’s release.”
