Wazdan is thrilled to announce their games are now available in the regulated Portuguese iGaming market. Thirty of Wazdan’s top games are now available to play in Portugal exclusively at Betclic.pt.

Through an extension of their existing partnership, Wazdan’s popular games – including 9 Lions, Larry the Leprechaun, Relic Hunters, Butterfly Lovers™, and Magic Stars 5 – can now reach players across Portugal. Betclic is one of the leading iGaming brands in Portugal, owned and operated by the Betclic Group, a European online gaming company that provides players with the ability to express their passion for sport and horse-racing betting, poker, and casino games. Their brands include Betclic and Expekt.

Driven by a passion for entertainment and a customer-centric approach, Betclic Group shares core values with Wazdan in their constant goal to offer accessible, top-class products, that are simple, innovative, and put the customers’ experience at the centre of their offering. Wazdan is an innovative game developer with more than a decade worth of experience and upward of 115 HTML5 games available in their collection. Their commitment to exploring new technology, releasing titles regularly, and pushing the limits of their offering is what has given them a name as a tier-one slots game developer.

In recent years, Wazdan has grown rapidly in regulated markets. The game producer holds licences issued by the MGA, the UKGC, Romanian National Gambling Office ONJN, and Curacao eGaming. Wazdan is also certified to offer its products in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, and Portugal. Furthermore, their games use the RNG certified by the GLI, which ensures reliable, fair, and secure gameplay – and recently, they were awarded the ISO/IEC 27001 certification. The ISO/IEC 27001 is the internationally recognized standard for Risk Management and Information Security, awarded only to a choice group of companies that meet strict requirements imposed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

In addition to market expansion, Wazdan also focuses on launching new, and exciting games for players to enjoy. Recent releases include Choco Reels™, Infinity Hero™, Sic Bok Dragons, and Reel Hero™.

“We are pleased to extend our partnership with Wazdan, to offer their world-class games in Portugal. Wazdan and Betclic Group’s values are aligned, placing the customer at the heart of the business. Wazdan’s innovative slot games are popular with our players, and we look forward to offering their games to the Portuguese market” said Zoltan Rapp, Casino and Poker Executive at Betclic.

Scientific Games provides Hrvatska Lutrija with instant game portfolio management and has developed a variety of products to entertain Croatian players and drive maximum proceeds to financially support valuable projects that contribute to the development of society in Croatia, including humanitarian causes, science, education, culture, environmental and health protection.

“We are extremely pleased with the growth of our instant game product category since our relationship with Scientific Games began just under two years ago, and we look forward to continuing our good work together for two more years. The incredible growth of the product in this short time can be credited to Scientific Games’ global expertise fully developing instant game portfolios with both entertainment value and the Lottery’s beneficiaries in mind,” Mario Musa, President of the Board of Hrvatska Lutrija, said.

“There is great potential to responsibly grow the instant product category further in Croatia. As we begin to work even more closely to refine the offering, the future to create proceeds to the Lottery’s beneficiary is very bright. Instant games as a game entertainment category is not fully realized in many European markets, and the National Lottery of Croatia’s recent success is a tremendous example of the product’s potential,” John Schulz, SVP Global Instant Products for Scientific Games, said.

IGT’s corporate social responsibility strategy is centered on four key pillars: Valuing our People, Advancing Responsibility, Supporting our Communities, and Fostering Sustainable Operations. The 2019 Sustainability Report shows IGT’s commitments and achievements in generating value for a range of stakeholder groups, including employees, customers, communities, and suppliers.

Highlights of the report include:

  • Valuing Our People: IGT supports a fair, inclusive culture where all employees feel valued, respected, and engaged. IGT enriches employee development through career pathing and mentoring.
    • In 2019, IGT’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion expanded its Diversity and Inclusion Groups (DIGs), adding SuperAbilities at IGT, which empowers and promotes the rights of people with disabilities; Military Veterans at IGT; and a group for employees age 50 and over.
