Microgaming Announce Further European Expansion With ESC Online

Microgaming launched further European expansion after revealing that its slot collection is live on the Portuguese market through the ESC Online brand of Estoril Sol Digital.

It said that the entry of the casino software developer into the country continues its expansion strategy into key controlled markets around the world following successful entries in this year’s Sweden and Czech Republic.

Andrew Clucas, chief operating officer at Microgaming, commented: “We are delighted to extend our offering into the regulated market of Portugal. ESC Online is one of the country’s leading gaming brands, and we are thrilled to provide them with some of the most engaging and successful titles in the industry.”

ESC Online, the first approved casino operator on the regulated online market in Portugal, boasts a gaming portfolio including slots, blackjack and roulette and stresses that it operates “on the same principles as land-based casinos in Portugal.”

After integration with the Microgaming platform, ESC Online now provides its customers access to a variety of titles from the supplier’s casino games catalogue, with more products to be added in the near future.

Rui Magalhães, CEO of Estoril Sol Digital, added: “Providing our players with excellent content and customer experience has the highest importance to us. Our partnership with Microgaming signals our commitment to this.

“We set the highest standards for our ESC Online brand, and with the addition of Microgaming’s exceptional casino titles, we look forward to bolstering our offering and providing our players with access to the largest and most diverse online gaming portfolio in the business.

“I am confident that through this collaboration we will continue to succeed in Portugal, as market leaders, and provide Portuguese players with a top notch entertaining online gaming experience.”

Microgaming rolled out a new content-based deal earlier this month with MrQ, the company owned by the UK-based white label operator online bingo and casino brands Lindar Media.

MrQ.com has now added a new wave of titles to its patented bingo platform by doubling the slots offered earlier this year thanks to an arrangement with the casino games supplier Pariplay’s Fusion integration programme.
