Sports betting and casino platform provider Digitain has been given the green light to expand into Romania after gaining a Class 2 licence certification from the Romanian National Gambling Office (ONJN).
The certification will allow Digitain to roll out its full range of services across Romania’s regulated space, while licensed digital and retail operators in Romania will also benefit from full access to Digitain’s entire product portfolio and software including the latest Random Number Generator (RNG) from ID Quantique.
Suren Khachatryan, Digitain CCO, said: “This new licence grants us deeper access to the Eastern European market, affording more and more sports fans the opportunity to enjoy our innovative sportsbook and play our exciting stable of games.
“Requests for proposal from licensees in the market have been strong and we expect to announce a raft of partnership deals in due course.
“Class 2 certification from Romania marks another important milestone for the company, enabling us to bring our award-winning platform to even more operators and their players across the planet.
“Approval from the ONJN bolsters Digitain’s ability to enter new markets with assurance as part of our wider expansion strategy. Additional key gaming licences are also currently being processed, notably in Malta.”
Romania, where online gambling has been legal for three years, mandates that both its suppliers and operators must pass stringent vetting procedures to obtain the requisite certification. Accordingly, Digitain’s Class 2 licence now enables it to sign strategic alliances with certified operators and deliver its market-leading content to Romanian players.
Earlier this year, Digitain revealed its plans to establish a ‘DigiTown’ complex in Yerevan in a bid to support gaming and tech startups across the Caucuses.
The complex will deliver free working space for tech startups for the first year, which is designed to provide the foundations for growth across Asia and Europe.
