Studio will feature 30 roulette and blackjack tables designed especially for operators licensed in the thriving Romanian and Italian markets

OnAir Entertainment, the provider of thrilling live casino content, has been given the green light to begin construction on a brand-new studio located in the Romanian capital of Bucharest.

The studio will contain 30 tables for both blackjack and roulette, with each set against stunning backdrops that have been designed to capture the unique atmosphere of a buzzing land-based casino floor. It also boasts cutting edge cameras, microphones and streaming technology.

The studio will be run by 350 staff including studio managers, technicians and dealers trained to the standards expected in prestigious land-based casinos. Dealers will be fluent in Romanian or Italian, with games broadcast from the studio intended for operators licensed in these fast-growing markets.

OnAir expects to cut the ribbon on its Romania studio in Q4 with operators already showing significant interest in adding titles to their lobbies as soon as they are available. The opening of the Romania studio will be followed by two more in Q4 2022 and Q1 2023 respectively.

After launching its first blackjack table in November 2021, OnAir Entertainment has worked tirelessly to enhance its offering with the addition of roulette and speed roulette with auto roulette and 9 Pots of GoldTM StreamIconTM Edition coming soon.

The OnAir network is also certified in key regulated markets including the Isle of Man, the UK, Greece, Ontario, Latvia, Sweden and Malta. This is set to increase to nine markets in the coming weeks with launches in Denmark and the Netherlands.

Mathijs Beugelink, Head of Operations at On Air Entertainment, said: “OnAir has quickly emerged as a leading live casino provider and network, and opening a studio in Romania forms part of wider plans to continue to grow at pace.

“This really will be a state-of-the-art studio that will allow us to create and broadcast the most entertaining and engaging live dealer content right from the heart of Bucharest.

“We are also thrilled to be bringing jobs and employment to the country as we look to build out a team of 350 people to run the studio and deliver the unrivalled player experience that we have built our reputation on.”

Dejan Loncar, Head of Business Development at On Air Entertainment, added: “The Romanian and Italian markets are incredibly exciting for operators as both offer significant untapped potential.

“There is certainly an appetite among players to access live casino games and that is the driving force behind opening this studio in Romania with game hosts that are native to the country and to Italy in order to provide truly localised content for both markets.”
