The regulated market in Italy have long suffered under a tight regime that have prevented the licensed casinos to offer a wide variety of casino-games. This is now about to change, as a deal between Net Entertainment and platform-provider GameAccount Network has now gone live via the Italian online casino Eurobet (who are running on the GameAccount-platform). Read Netent’s press relase here, and Game Account’s press release here.
This means Italians can now enjoy Netent games on Eurobet and at other licensed Italian online casinos in the future (customers of GameAccount Network). This is a great deal for both companies, as Netent needs to expand into regulated markets to have a sustainable business-model in the future. GameAccount Network profits from the popularity of Net Entertainment, as they are now able to serve a Netent-starving community of Italian gamblers.
The company Game Account Network is an old software and platform-provider with a lot of big customers worldwide. They offer both their own developed games, as well as slots and table-games from other software providers via their platform. Their main focus has been on casinos that are licensed in regulated markets, and not unregulated markets like Scandinavia and Canada. They have therefore a big customer base in countries like Italy and The United States.
