Kindred Group is one of the leading operators for online casinos that are running in the United States. With millions of customers, these online sites deliver a safe and secure way to engage in real money play while accessing top-rated games. With a recent acquisition of Relax Gaming, top online casinos operated by Kindred Group are now able to expand to present better services to members and new games will be added to existing portfolios.

About Kindred Group

Kindred Group has long been operating sites in Europe and other countries and was able to enter the US market in 2018 when it partnered with the Hard Rock Casino in Atlantic City. This was the first entrance into the market and since then, the group has been expanding. It quickly started working with online casinos and betting sites in Indiana and Pennsylvania, and in 2020, an agreement with Penn National allowed Kindred Group to break into the market in Ohio and Illinois. In April of 2021, Kindred Group entered the Virginia market.

Today, Kindred Group provides real money games to more than 27 million customers around the world and has 11 established brands. Kindred was already affiliated with Relax Gaming and has been working with the provider since 2013. With the acquisition of the remaining 66.6% of shares, Kindred Group can now have more control over their casino, bingo, and poker offerings in the United States.

New Opportunities with Relax Gaming Acquisition

Relax Gaming is one of the top developers of casino games for players in Europe. For many years, US players did not have access to games created by this company. Recently, an acquisition of 66.6% of Relax Gaming was completed by Kindred Group. With this new acquisition, Kindred Group operating casinos are able to present players with more games and an enhanced experience when they access legally operating online casino sites in the US.

Founded in 2010, Relax Gaming has continued to develop unique titles for players to enjoy for real money from home. Now that games will be available to US players, there will be more slots, great table games, and video poker options being added to currently operating sites under Kindred Group.

US Players Get New Slots

Relax Gaming focuses on the development of slots games, though they do offer a few classic card and table selections. For US gamblers that already play online, the acquisition of Relax by Kindred Group is great news. Slot fans will quickly see the addition of Relax games being added and will benefit from top-notch titles. The slots from this provider are known to offer versatile themes, and intense graphics all displayed in HD and 3D. They offer unique features and bonus rounds and also have top verified payout rates.

Of the 31 slots currently being offered by Relax Gaming, there is an overall payout percentage RTP of 96.88%, which is higher than the industry average. US players will soon have access to some of the best paying casinos and games. Moody Fruits is one, which presents a verified RTP of 99.91% and Magical Dice is another, with an RTP of 99.875%.

Despite having a small portfolio of slot titles, many of these Relax Games have been enjoyed by US players accessing offshore sites. Now, they can legally be played at operating casinos in multiple US states, including Unibet and Pala Casino. When players access these sites, they will soon see the addition of Relax Gaming titles and can enjoy some of the most popular games, including Temple Tumble, Snake Arena, Money Train, and Emerald’s Infinity Reels.
