Radica Games Limited is a United States company that produces electronic games, founded in 1983. On October 3, 2006, Mattel, Inc. (NASDAQMAT) announced the completion of their acquisition of Radica. It began by producing electronic souvenir games for casinos. In the late 1990s, it became known for its Bass Fishin line of games. While Radica still produces electronic handheld games based on casino or card games, it has branched out into toys, board games, and video game accessories.
