Betsoft Gaming has reinforced its presence in the Spanish speaking market through its latest deal with VERSUS.

Having successfully undertaken two ISMS audits to allow operations in both Spain and Colombia, Betsoft has focused on widening its reach and accessibility across these markets.

With over 200 RNG titles in its portfolio, the award-winning content provider is also able to offer some of its most successful releases translated and localised for Spanish speaking players. This serves to further enhance its appeal to new demographics.

VERSUS is part of Orenes Group, one of Spain’s premier leisure and hospitality companies. Formerly known as Vivalasuerte, the online casino was rebranded as VERSUS in 2019 to reflect its transformation to a Tier 1 Esports and iGaming destination.

Licensed by the DGOJ and working under Spanish Remote Gaming regulations, VERSUS is committed to innovation in technology as a driver of socially responsible business. VERSUS is also continuing its three-year sponsorship agreement with Atlético Madrid, one of Spain’s leading football clubs, in compliance with the Royal Decree on Commercial Communications for Gambling Activities.

“Reinforcing our presence in the Spanish market is very important to us. VERSUS is a renowned and reputable brand across Spanish speaking player bases and we are delighted to be working closely with them for the foreseeable future,” Anna Mackney, Head of Account Management at Betsoft Gaming, said.

“Working with a ‘mobile first’ content provider such as Betsoft is essential for us as we continue to give our players access to the best slots in the market. We are looking forward to a seamless integration and a successful partnership,” Juan José López, Sports Betting and Online Gambling Director at VERSUS, said.

The Netherlands has always been an important market for the Merkur brand, in terms of both the arcade and casino sectors. Holland’s current climate of positive regulation being provided by the Netherlands Gambling Authority (KSA) chaired by René Jansen has led Merkur to become a strategic partner of Gaming in Holland (GiH) and to join the GiH Conference & Expo that was held from June 20 to 21 at the Jaarbeurs expo centre in the city of Utrecht.

Since 2011, the annual Gaming in Holland Conference has been the event to find out what’s happening in the Dutch gaming market and to meet up with all the major decision makers, focusing on the entire Dutch gambling industry. The opening of the regulated online market in October 2021 not only created a completely new market segment but also materially impacted existing markets, channels and verticals.

Recognising the importance of this event Merkur made a strong commitment and created a major presence at the Expo, being represented by Merkur Gaming and Group subsidiary companies, GeWeTe and edict eGaming solutions.

“We had good discussions with many customers, especially about our new ZONIC slot machine for the Dutch arcades. This unique cabinet with its very good ergonomics and the new game package with the new FIVE game feature was very well received by our customers. In addition, discussions were also held with our many pub customers. They are already looking forward to our own next, specifically for the pub sector, exhibition that will be held on 4 July in the Van der Valk Hotel Sassenheim in the Netherlands,” Dirk Sondermann, Managing Director of Merkur Gaming, said.

“This was a great opportunity for GeWeTe. We would like to thank the organizers for a great event, for the informative conference presentations and for the possibility for us to meet with important personalities from the gaming industry in Holland,” Aristidis Tsikouras, CEO of GeWeTe, said.

“The Dutch gaming market has always been an important part of GeWeTe, and not just because our company is geographically close to the Netherlands. Our extensive range of products and our solutions meet all needs, for arcades, gastronomy and also for casinos,” Aristidis Tsikouras added.

Holland Casino, FNV and De Unie have reached a negotiation agreement for a new collective labour agreement. The parties have been discussing this in recent weeks. The new collective labour agreement will run from 1 June 2022 to 30 September 2023.

The wage will be structurally increased by 2.5% from 1 June 2022. A nominal amount of 60 euros per month will also be added on a structural basis. On 1 January 2023, wages will increase by another 0.75%. It has also been agreed that the hourly wage for employees is at least 14 euros. In addition, all employees who are employed by Holland Casino in July this year will receive a one-off gross amount of 350 euros based on full-time employment in that month.

“The past two years have been dominated for Holland Casino by the impact of the coronavirus. We were forced to close our doors for months and were confronted with many restrictive measures. In the discussions about wages, we had to take into account Holland Casino’s financial position on the one hand, and inflation and the situation on the labor market on the other. I am pleased that we have achieved a good result in a relatively short period of time. With this increase, there is a balanced agreement that is good for our employees and for Holland Casino,” Marleen Berk, HR Director at Holland Casino, said.
