Through the partnership, Light & Wonder plans to use its in-house game development teams to leverage brand licensing offering from Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment. Titles across a range of verticals will be available to global regulated markets through Light & Wonder’s Opengaming ecosystem.

The digital version of Willy Wonka: World of Wonka will be released in the U.S., U.K., and Europe, with more Wonka-themed titles scheduled to appear on Light & Wonder’s content-aggregation platform across all igaming verticals.

Light & Wonder also plans to bring another land-based slot title, The Wizard Of Oz: Road To Emerald City, online as part of the global rights agreement, with additional branded games from the Warner Bros. Discovery portfolio to follow.
