TGC’s games are available in the UK and markets served from Gibraltar with several new launches scheduled for later in 2019.

The deal was struck between Skyrocket Entertainment founders, Sean O’Kelly and Richard Clarke – together with BlockChain Innovations Corp’s CTO and Director, Morris Mosseri. TGC co-founder, Hans Winkelmann, will work alongside Skyrocket’s senior management team as CPO to implement a revitalised business operations strategy.

Skyrocket CEO, Sean O’Kelly, said: “We’re incredibly excited by our acquisition of The Games Company, which represents a major milestone for Skyrocket. TGC has a proven track record for developing and rolling out online games – it also has a pipeline of new integration opportunities and partnerships with online gaming operators so it’s primed to expand recurring revenue. We’re looking forward to working with Hans and the talented team at TGC to integrate Skyrocket’s existing brands and IP. All of this strengthens Skyrocket’s offering and reach and sets us up for rapid growth.”

Skyrocket COO, Richard Clarke, added: “We are excited to have TGC aboard Skyrocket – this will significantly help broaden our reach in delivering exciting and standout games using our exclusive media rights through TGC’s certified Remote Gaming Server and existing partnerships.”

Skyrocket Entertainment is a unique new venture cornering a gap in the market by migrating iconic Hollywood feature films and branded intellectual property rights into the worldwide gambling and social gaming sector.
