DigiDeal partners with game developer

DigiDeal Corp. has signed an agreement with Gaming Edge Entertainment LLC for consulting and game development.

Spokane-based DigiDeal makes electronic gaming tables. Gaming Edge Owner Joe Awada, a professional poker player,  has patented more than 50 table games for felt and electronic tables.

DigiDeal already sells one Awada game, High Tie Blackjack, as a stand-alone game, or as a side bet on Classic Blackjack, another DigiDeal game.

The agreement with Gaming Edge gives DigiDeal exclusive rights to adapt the Las Vegas company's games for electronic table applications.

Awada said several of his games should convert readily to electronic versions.

"Our electronic table platform allows for more creative and complex games, adding bonus and side bet features, and provides the perfect environment for creative game deeloprs like Joe Awada," DigiDeal Chief Executive Officer Mike Kuhn said.
