Malta – A casino game development firm based in Malta; Green Jade Games, have today publicly announced a new collaboration deal between two other companies to design and develop a new slot machine game based on American country folk song Cotton-Eyed Joe.
Cotton-Eyed Joe is a traditional American country folk song popular when covered by Swedish Eurodance group Rednex in the mid 1990’s, which was later remixed in to a dance version, and released from Rednex’s greatest hits album.
The agreement, which was announced on Green Jade Games’ public social platforms is between Edenberg Design AB and Rednex Ltd to bring about the slot machine game; Cotton Eye Joe – Moonshine K.O.
The name Rednex was chosen as a deliberate misspelling of the word rednecks. The band usually perform as personas that parody the “redneck” stereotype.
Chief executive officer at Edenberg Design AB Peter Edenberg commented on the deal:
“We see Green Jade as an upcoming, fresh inventive gaming company that really understands the Rednex brand. Of course, we are thrilled to have closed this agreement and are looking forward to seeing the end result in the big casino operators line-up.”
Creative Director of Green Jade Games Jesper Kärrbrink also shared his thoughts:
“We’re delighted to have struck a deal with Rednex Ltd and Edenberg Design AB. Our team is fired up and we are looking forward to making Cotton Eye Joe – Moonshine K.O. a blockbuster hit.”
Kärrbrink has been CEO for a number of media companies such as Östersunds-Posten, Metro International, Bonniers Veckotidningar as well as online and e-commerce companies such as Bonnier Interactive and Euroflorist AB.
‘The game is one of the first from the new ‘knockout series’ from Green Jade Games. The ”Knockout Series” of games are slots in which the customer changes spin results to align loot chests and trigger bonus features.’
Reportedly, the game is currently in development and is expected to be released around July of this year.
Green Jade Games Ltd, having its registered office at 2 Ajiree Court, Testaferrata Street, Ta’ Xbiex, Malta XBX 1402, is licensed and regulated by the Gambling Commission of Great Britain for provision of services to the United Kingdom.
