Within the international iGaming market, Romania currently occupies a spot as one of the primary targeted destinations for many of Europe’s top iGaming software developers. Following in the recent footsteps of industry giant NYX Gaming, Play’n GO and iSoftBet have both secured a Class Two Internet gaming license from the National Gambling Office in Romania.
Software Developers Positioning for Romanian Gaming Market
By securing this license, both companies will be permitted to start providing iGaming software content and software development services to residents living between Romania’s borders. Due to these recent developments, it is becoming clear that many of the world’s top software developers are working to position themselves to be able to provide integrated online casino games for what is sure to be a fast-growing Romanian Internet gambling market.
At this point in time, iSoftBet has already secured a content deal to provide its library of 50+ top-performing certified games to the Romanian website named Netbet.ro. Based on certain provisions within the jurisdiction’s regulations, iSoftBet will also be allowed to introduce and offer additional games from third-party software developers.
In separate press releases, Play’n GO‘s CEO Johan Törnqvist stated: “This is a landmark day for the company and we are delighted to have been awarded a gaming license for Romania, a growing market that we have had our eyes on for some time. We have a long line of parties interested in our premium, best-in-class content and we can’t wait to see the joy on Romanian player’s faces as they interact with our games for the first time.”
According to Nir Elbaz, iSoftBet’s Managing Director, “Expanding the number of regulated markets in which we are operational is a significant part of iSoftBet’s growth plan. We regard responsible gambling as the highest priority, and work hard to deliver fair and enjoyable games for players and maximum profits for our operators.”
It’s a sure bet that many other iGaming software developers and operators will be looking to secure the same level of access to the Romanian market and other Eastern European markets that could be opening up in the future. This kind of growth within the industry assures that Internet gambling is here to stay as government officials everywhere take steps to alleviate gaming restrictions within their respective jurisdictions.
