Two iGaming behemoths, NetEnt and GVC Holdings, have expanded their global reach with an expansion into a new market and a content licensing agreement. Let’s take a look at each one in more detail.
NetEnt’s Move into Latin America
In line with NetEnt’s expansion plans, both online and the land-based market, it has just entered the online market in Mexico. The move has been possible with an existing client of theirs, CODERE, whom they signed in 2015 to expand to the Spanish gaming market. CODERE is a Spanish publicly traded (MADX: CDR) iGaming company, which also operates in countries like Argentina, Mexico, Brazil and Italy. It has a significant presence on the traditional land-based casino markets and has all the necessary online licenses needed for the launch of NetEnt’s first-class games.
Here’s what Björn Krantz, Managing Director of NetEnt Americas LLC., thinks of the agreement: ”I am really excited to enter the regulated online casino market in Mexico together with Codere. This is our first market entry in Latin America and marks another milestone as we follow our long-term strategy to enter and grow in new regulated markets. I’m convinced that we can support Codere’s online casino growth and that players in Mexico will enjoy our world-class thrilling games.”
GVC Holdings Signs Deal with Blueprint Gaming
GVC Holdings, the group that manages sportsbooks like bwin and Sportingbet, casinos like Party Casino and Casino Club, poker sites like Party Poker, and bingo sites like Foxy Bingo, expands its games offering with over 40 new titles from Blueprint Gaming. The games developer is part of the Gauselmann Group and holds licenses with the UK Gambling Commission and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission. That in mind, here are a couple of its most popular creations to date.
The 20-line branded Blueprint Gaming slot, Top Cat, is one of their most bonus-packed slots, featuring four randomly triggered Wild features, re-spins, and five Tip Top bonus rounds, with even more surprises.
Worms Reloaded is another branded hit of theirs, which is a sequel that’s played on 20 lines and 5 reels. It too has four random in-game features, plus a good handful of bonuses, which help to generate wins at a RTP of 92.016%. Note that both slots have the progressive Jackpot King prize up from grabs as well.
According to GVC’s Chief Product Officer, Liron Snir: “Our aim is to ensure we have the most attractive content available to our customers and Blueprint Gaming is amongst the most exciting out there. This deal is another important step on our journey to create the world’s greatest online casino.”
