Leading game development group Microgaming has confirmed its latest expansion into the Portuguese market, thanks to a deal with a local operator.
Microgaming’s arrangement is with ESC Online, part of the Estoril Sol Digital group. The deal adds to the firm’s recent round of expansions, which has seen it enter both the Czech and Swedish markets in 2019. Speaking about the deal, the chief operating officer for Microgaming, Andrew Clucas, said that they were pleased to be able to serve a new base of customers:
“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, which is the first online casino operator to earn a license to provide a betting platform to Portuguese players, offers a variety of online gaming content, including blackjack, roulette and slots, basing its brand on providing the same range of games you can find in a land-based casino.
The result of its integration with Microgaming’s online platform means that ESC Online can offer its players a new range of casino titles from the Microgaming roster. And more games are due to be added to the available list in future.
The deal with ESC Online isn’t the first to involve Microgaming in recent weeks. Earlier during December, they announced that they had struck a content agreement with online casino site MrQ, which is owned by the UK operator Lindar media. MrQ had also signed a deal with Pariplay to use their Fusion gaming platform, which has also bolstered its original bingo gaming product.
