Spanish gaming company Codere SA has created a new Italian gaming machines distribution unit “Codwin” by merging its subsidiaries FG Slot and Gap Games Italia.

Codere is the majority shareholder in the two existing businesses and won approval from investors to merge the units at a shareholder meeting in April.

Andrea Rigodanzo, former MD of FG Slot, will head up the new company, which Codere hopes will offer savings on operational costs.

Rigodanzo said: “It is an extremely difficult time for the legal gaming sector, in particular for operators of gaming machines. As a result, we have decided to join forces to face the challenges the market is presenting to us. The Covid-19 pandemic arrived in an already difficult context of increased taxation and regulations that put a strain on the sector…

“With Codwin we intend to offer a model of management integration and efficiency that will also represent an incubator for other companies that want to continue operating according to the usual standards of reliability and legality and who have a long-term project to share with us. We are able to support companies that are currently experiencing difficulties and to implement a shared strategy that allows them to face the future with optimism and competence.”

Net Gaming in Preparations to Enter Dutch Market
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Gaming solutions provider Net Gaming has begun preparations for the regulation of online gambling in the Netherlands, with a view to entering the market as early as possible.

The Dutch parliament had a final saying regarding the secondary legislation related to the Remote Gambling Act. The implementation of the Act will end the long overdue wait for a modern gaming legislation in the Netherlands. The new law is expected to enter into force in Q1 of 2021, which is also when license applications will be accepted for operators.

Net Gaming has chosen to take swift measures to be in the best position to capitalise on the Dutch market at the earliest possible time. The measures include adjustments to the product offering to be compliant on the Dutch market until the new law is entered into force.

The implementation of the Remote Gambling Act in the Netherlands is a step forward for the Dutch market and consumers, as well as a positive development towards locally regulated revenues for Net Gaming.

Establishing partnerships with a new base of operators in Switzerland will allow Pariplay to provide access to a repertoire of over 100 inhouse developed casino games, including its latest Spin N’Hit and Stallion Fortunes, as well as extremely popular titles like Wolf Riches and Dragons of the North.

“This accreditation acknowledges our unwavering commitment to compliance and security across our global operations, while also allowing us to continue to expand our reach into newly regulated markets, including Switzerland.
