Leander Gaming is an independent video slot developer with an outstanding portfolio of innovative and premium quality games.
Leander Games was founded in Buenos Aires in 2008 by Steven Matsell, Ramir Atucha
and Marcelo Blanco.
The company is named after the Greek God ‘Leander’ who swam across the ocean each night to be with his young lover Hero.
At the time, South America was not known as a gambling hotspot, although Argentina has the most real-world casinos in South America.
Leander decided to introduce online gambling to Argentina by releasing a number of online slots designed especially for the Latin American market.
In 2011 they began to develop games for the social gaming market by signing a deal with Beijing to provide games for their Facebook application.
At the same time, the heavy metal band Megadeth gave Leander permission to use its name on the first branded game through a worldwide exclusive license for the online and land-based markets.
