Light & Wonder Strengthens Position with New Licensing Deal with Warner Bros

Light & Wonder has announced a long-term international licensing partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment (WBDGTE).

Fans will now be able to enjoy online gaming, starting with Willy Wonka: World of Wonka, which has been a physical casino slot machine for decades. This is the first game released under an extended license agreement. The game will be available digitally in the US, UK and Europe to keep the authentic feel of the original release.

Through a long-term agreement, Light & Wonder’s in-house game development teams will have access to several brand licensing products from their long-term partner, WBDGTE.

Games of various genres are expected to be released through the OpenGaming ecosystem in regulated markets around the world. Light & Wonder’s content aggregation platform is slated to launch many more Wonka-themed games in various iGaming areas.

Light & Wonder, as part of a global rights agreement, will also feature a land-based game titled The Wizard of Oz: Road to Emerald City, as well as other Warner Bros. branded titles.

Dylan Slaney, CEO of iGaming at Light & Wonder, commented: “The Warner Bros. Discovery brand portfolio is legendary and our partnership has led to the creation of popular casino content, including Willy Wonka: World of Wonka.

“This is a huge step forward in terms of presenting our omnichannel vision to the world, as we continue to develop the most entertaining branded content available anywhere on the market.”
