A deal between Spribe and Light & Wonder will bring the former’s popular Aviator crash game to online casinos West Virginia. The title has been very successful in gaming markets outside the United States.

Aviator is classified as a social multiplayer game that challenges participants to “ride a curve” and cash out before a plane crashes, leading to a total loss of their winnings. The game boasts a Return to Player (RTP) rate of 97%, according to Spribe. The longer you wait and stay in, the larger the multiplier when playing the hit title.

Which West Virginia online casinos will offer popular Aviator title?

In its announcement of a deal with the game developer, it was revealed that Light & Wonder will hold exclusive distribution rights for Spribe games anywhere in the US. It’s expected that in addition to Aviator, the Turbo line of games from Spribe will also be released into the US online casino market.

Licensed vendor Light & Wonder supplies games to several casino operators in West Virginia, including the following:

West Virginia legalized online casinos in 2019, with currently nine operators in the market. The state is one of only six with legal casino apps available in the US.


Aviator WV online casino game appeals to ‘untapped demographic of players’

Spribe launched its Aviator title on several non-casino gaming websites in Europe, Asia and the Middle East in 2019. It quickly became a game of choice for many Millennial app users.

The appeal can be attributed to the simplicity of the game and the similarity between financial market apps where users invest and hold or cash out for profits. Spribe offers the game for both mobile technology platforms, as well as web-based casinos across the globe.

“Spribe’s top-performing crash game, Aviator, has made impressive waves in the industry and been a resounding success in a short space of time, attracting a previously untapped demographic of players and we expect a similar reception in the US market,” said Light & Wonder senior director of digital partnerships, Steve Mayes, in a press release.

He continued:

“To assert our position as the leading iGaming ecosystem in the US, it is pivotal for us to bring innovative and new experiences to operators. It remains our biggest criteria when looking for new studios to add to our roster, so we are delighted to welcome Spribe as their exclusive distributor for the US.”

WV online casino players can be on the lookout for the exciting new addition at several of the state’s available operators.
