Buongiorno a tutti, come state oggi? Yes, this time the latest industry news from the online gambling world start in Italian and with the very good reason. A renowned game supplier Habanero has decided to enter the Italian gambling market in 2018 and that is only the first step on the path of their planned commercial expansion throughout Western Europe.
Welcome Habanero to Italy
Did you know that Italy is the state party with the most World Heritage Sites? According to UNESCO, as of 2017, Italy has more world heritage sites than other country on the planet. The number is 53. Besides culture and art, the country that gave birth to Renaissance is also famous for its stunning landmarks, fantastic music and amazing cuisine.
A part of 63 million individuals living in Italy, who love iGaming, now has one additional reason to celebrate the start of 2018. All Italians who enjoy playing online slots in online casinos will be happy to hear that Habanero kick-started a year by stepping into the Italian gaming space.
AAMS Gave Permission to 33 Games
Autonomous Administration of State Monopolies, also known as AAMS, as the supreme regulatory body in Italy, is granted the power to issue licenses and regulate other gambling matters. And Habanero has just joined the Italian gambling club!
The exact number of new, exciting Habanero games, developed in 2016 and 2017, and approved by the AAMS, is 33 at the moment, including Scruffy Scallywags Slot, 5 Mariachis Slot and The Dead Escape Slot. However, the remaining titles in their catalogue, as well as Habanero’s future releases, are also expected to follow the same pattern in the near future.
Partnership with Digitain
Another thrilling moment is Habanero’s decision to go through advanced discussions with several leading operators and online casinos in Italy. The idea is to take the games live.
In 2017, the game provider agreed on a range of operator and supplier integrations. The most recent December agreement happened with Digitain, a multi-channel casino platform.
Habanero’s impressive portfolio now offers over 80 video slots titles, 10 table games, and 10 video poker titles. They are available in 24 European and Asian languages. Habanero made sure to integrate these titles with over 60 different operators and aggregators.
The company’s expansion strategy is counting on the experience and knowledge of their gaming executive, Arcangelo Lonoce. Mr Lonoce was appointed as European Head of Business Development in November 2017.
Following the matter, Mr Lonoce commented: “We have progressed our global reach significantly in recent months and are delighted to have all of our most recent games certified in Italy. Habanero is entering an exciting phase of its growth, with expansion across Western Europe one of our core priorities as we lead into 2018.”
Europe is eagerly waiting to see the next gaming moves by Habanero. Judging by the beginning of the year, players on the old continent will have enough reasons to joyfully rub their hands, since Habanero will obviously have much more to add to the iGaming matter in 2018. Until then, both players and online casinos are left to closely monitor Habanero’s further moves. Arrivederci a tutti!
