The European Game Developers Federation (EGDF) continued its expansion, as SGA – the Serbian Games Association, joined EGDF.

“The addition of Serbian Games Association to EGDF is highly important for our mission of building a strong voice in Brussels for European game developers. We want to unite, to share best practices, learn about common challenges and help game developers to grow the identity of the European game industry. It is crucial that game developers from all European countries, EU members or not, have full access to global markets and that any restrictions to their freedom of expression and arts and freedom of movement are minimized.”, stated Hendrik Lesser, president of EGDF.

The Serbian Games Association is the 19th member of the Federation that has been steadily expanding its activities especially in Central and South-East Europe during the last years. Serbia is one of the countries currently negotiating for EU membership and EGDF will provide a way for Serbian game developers to make their voice heard in EU decision making when the policies shaping their digital future are built up.

“Operating on a national level, gaming associations are an essential part of the ecosystem – making it easier for new projects to emerge and providing a platform for the community. But without broader cooperation on a European level, no important victories can be won. That is why we considered it paramount to be part of the EGDF. Together, we can push for meaningful policy changes, better conditions for all companies, studios, and teams, and of course exchange experiences, hard-earned knowledge, and brand new ideas. We strongly believe that the future brings an enormous boost to the gaming industry. Collaboration with the amazing EGDF board and all of their members can help us navigate the coming changes.”, stated Kristina Jankovic, Administrative Manager at SGA.

Gaming Innovation Group signs platform agreement with Bet Seven Online Ltd.

Reference is made to the announcement on 17 July 2020, where Gaming Innovation Group Inc. (GiG) announced it had signed a heads of terms agreement with K.A.K. DOO Skopje, Hospitality, tourism and services company (K.A.K.).

K.A.K. is one of North Macedonia’s leading leisure groups with two premium casino resorts, LeGrand Casino Skopje and LeGrand Casino Bitola, along with four hotels (Hotel Epinal in Bitola and hotels Sport, Bistra and Lodge in Mavrovo) and the Mavrovo Ski Resort.

GiG has signed the final agreement with K.A.K for the provision of GiG’s platform, front-end development and managed media services to launch their digital operation in the regulated North Macedonian market. The agreement has a combined fixed fee and revenue share structure, and the casino offering is expected to go-live by Q1 2021.

Having traditionally been a closed market to online operators, the Macedonian government is now allowing land based operators to apply for online licenses that must directly reflect their offline offering. Through their LeGrand casinos, K.A.K. will therefore be one of a handful of operators in North Macedonia to offer table games to online players along with a complete slots portfolio.

GiG has also signed a new agreement with Dunder, replacing the existing white label agreement with a new software-as-a-service agreement (SaaS). Dunder was launched as a new brand on GiG’s platform back in 2016, and has successfully grown since then. The new agreement is on a fixed fee basis and has a minimum term of two years, and will commence in November 2020.

The new Dunder agreement is part of GiG’s strategy to move successful clients away from the white label model and over to SaaS agreements. The shift to SaaS reduces operational complexity and overheads for GiG, and the reduced risks strengthens overall sustainability.
