Key approval follows further upgrades made to market-leading platform

Leading sports betting and casino platform provider Digitain has received certification from the Romanian National Gambling Office (ONJN) for its award-winning platform, allowing the company to expand its global footprint into another established gaming market.

The Class 2 licence, recognising the highest standards as both a platform and software provider, allows Digitain to roll out its full range of services across Romania’s regulated space. Consequently, licensed digital and retail operators in Romania can now enjoy full access to Digitain’s entire product portfolio.

Following the integration of new software, including the latest state-of-the-art Random Number Generator (RNG) from ID Quantique, into its gaming suite, the Digitain platform guarantees fair play and peace of mind between regulators, operators and their players across new and mature markets.

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.

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.”

Digitain’s signature sportsbook product covers 65 sports, 7,500 leagues, and offers more than 3,000 betting markets. It also offers odds on 35,000 live events each month, while its casino solution has 3,000-plus games from major casino suppliers (such as Novomatic, Microgaming, NetEnt and Playson).

The licence suspension makes it illegal for Addison Global to offer gambling services via its moplay.co.uk website in Britain but does not prevent the operator from returning any outstanding balances to customers.

Betwinner and Bet24Hrs have secured sports betting licences form the National Lottery Regulatory Commission of Nigeria (NLRC).

Upon receiving the licence, Bet24Hrs managing director Roy Jiang thanked the Commission for its help throughout the process and pledged to contribute to the process and growth of Nigeria’s regulated gambling industry.

Olatunji Idowu, managing director of Betwinner, said that the operator was dedicated to being a trusted partner of the regulator. He said he was encouraged with the Commission’s ongoing efforts to clean up the industry and ensure all stakeholders supported good causes.

Lanre Gbajabiamila, director of NLRC, called on all operators currently serving Nigerian customers without a licence to apply for certification, warning those that failed to do so would “face the full wrath of the law.”

He also warned that licensees who failed to comply with regulations were liable to have the approval to operate revoked.
