Habanero supplier of slots and table games began its European expansion by 2020 after joining Romania for the first time alongside operator Winbet.
Signed as a continuation of last year’s agreement with EGT Ukraine, hailed as “hugely successful,” the deal sees EGT’s Winbet brand introduce 58 Habanero titles approved by the ONJN gambling authority in Romania.
Mark Adonia COO at Winbet Romania said: “We aim to deliver premium entertainment experiences at Winbet, and we’re thrilled to be the first in the Romanian market to integrate Habanero’s immersive gaming portfolio.
“Habanero are in hot demand across the globe and we’re very happy to be first in the Romanian market to be able to offer them. I’m sure our Winbet players will enjoy their games tremendously.”
As part of its ambitious plans for European expansion, the latest in a succession of market openings for Habanero, Winbet follows a series of agreements joined across Europe in the last 12 months, including in Croatia, Lithuania, Georgia, the UK and Portugal.
Habanero says it’s “ready to build on an outstanding 2019,” with the company planning year-round growth across Europe and South America.
Arcangelo Lonoce, European head of business development at Habanero, said of the link-up: “Following a record-breaking 2019 for global growth at Habanero, we’re delighted to be kicking-off 2020 by partnering with Romania’s leading operator.
“As one of Europe’s true rising stars, Romania is one of our many key targets for this year and we’re looking forward to introducing players to our innovative catalogue of games. Expect plenty more deals to be announced soon enough.”
B2B gaming technology provider Oryx Gaming substantially increased its presence on the Romanian market earlier this week and entered into a content distribution agreement with Winbet.
Under the terms of the deal Winbet is to gain access to the custom content of the Oryx games platform from vendors including Kalmaba Games, Gamomat and Golden Hero, as well as from Oryx Hub, which provides a range of casino games from a collection of over 8,000 titles and 80 providers.
