Real Dealer Studios, pioneer of cinematically produced online casino games, has made its debut in Romania and Greece after teaming up with tier-one operator, Kaizen Gaming.

Under the deal, players at popular brands Stoiximan and Betano will be able to access the provider’s hugely entertaining games for the very first time.

Real Dealer’s suite of cinematic RNG titles, which are made using recorded video of dealers and gameplay, represent a crossover between the worlds of film and iGaming.

This pioneering approach to game development uses filmmaking technology, professional actors, film directors and post-production crew to deliver Hollywood levels of quality the likes of which can’t be found anywhere else in the online gaming sector.

The carefully curated productions provide the player with a one-on-one casino experience where they are made to feel like a VIP.

Shane Cotter, Chief Product Officer at Real Dealer Studios, said: “Our cinematic RNG games have proved to be blockbuster hits in a wide range of markets and we believe they will be just as popular in Greece and Romania.

“Our games allow operators such as Kaizen Gaming to deliver a stand-out player experience and provide content that keeps players engaged and entertained at all times.

“This is an important agreement for Real Dealer as it forms part of wider plans to continue to expand into regulated markets across Europe and beyond, and with the leading operators in each.”

Christos Mavridis, Live Casino Manager at Kaizen Gaming, added: “Real Dealer is the real deal. Its cinematic RNG casino games are like nothing we have seen in the market before and deliver unprecedented levels of fun and excitement.

The Greek government has confirmed that it will ease player wagering restrictions on online casino and poker verticals.

Positive developments for market incumbents will see the government increase its €2 maximum wager on online casino (slots and table games) to €20.

Announced by the Hellas government gazette, the increase on maximum wagers will be instantly effective from May 2022 onwards and will be further applicable for online poker and its associated RNG games.

The changes follow a Year-1 review of Greece’s relaunched gambling regime by the Ministry of Finance.

Further positives saw the government announce that Jackpot values on games of chance and slots would be doubled from an existing €70,000 cap to €140,000.

The Hellenic Gaming Commission (HGC) provided a further technical update that will allow licensed operators to reduce game/spin times from 3-to-2 seconds.

The HGC further revealed that it would extend its compliance window for operators to connect to its centralised monitoring system until December 2022.

HGC President Dimitris Ntzanatos welcomed the Finance Ministry’s decision to increase wagers on online casino and poker – stating that his department had backed the outcome in its recent auditing report of Greek gambling.
