Innovative live dealer and betting games studio BetGames has announced the launch of a new product vertical, Game Shows, in tandem with a landmark agreement with sports betting and gaming group, Entain.

The collaboration between Entain and BetGames brings forward a unique live game show, which provides customers with an unrivalled experience set within a state-of-the-art studio.

As part of this landmark deal, BetGames will provide Entain with a total of three bespoke and unique gameshows, with the first, Starzle, kicking off the partnership giving the group access to the industry’s first premium number-themed gameshow.

The products will be accessible across Entain’s renowned brand portfolio, with a direct integration onto Ladbrokes’ platform launching the partnership.

Game Shows is an innovative new product, featuring state-of-the-art technology and has been optimised for the Ladbrokes brand. The new vertical will introduce the industry-first number-themed gameshow, with a mix of both number-themed mechanics and card-based elements. Combining the ever-popular number draw mechanic with the drama of earning higher multipliers at the turn of a card, this bespoke game is sure to have broad appeal.

Entain is one of the industry’s largest sports betting and gaming groups, operating in both online and land-based sectors. The company’s extensive list of popular brands includes bwin, Coral, Ladbrokes, Sportingbet, Foxy Bingo, Gala and PartyCasino.

The launch is an integral part of a series of developments that will see 2022 become the strongest launch year in the company’s history. BetGames is also set to expand its offered verticals from one to three, simultaneously enhancing its proposition and widening its reach.

Commenting on the deal, BetGames’ CEO Andreas Koeberl said: “We’re absolutely delighted to partner with the Entain group. Its status as one of the world’s largest gaming organisations and innovation leaders imbues us with excitement at the possibilities our collaboration will lead to. This is a game changer for us as a company and a result of our successful transformation over the previous 18 months. The fantastic collaboration with Entain’s brilliant product, brand, and commercial teams enabled us to launch the game – from ideation to production – within only nine months.

“The Game Show product line is a carefully curated tier-one focused vertical that will provide users with an unprecedented gambling experience, we’re extremely enthusiastic about it and are confident it will appeal to many across the iGaming space.”

Head of Live Casino at Entain, Graciella Anthony added: “Working closely with BetGames was a great experience and a testament as to what we can achieve together – and we couldn’t be more excited to work with them again.

“Starzle is a long-term exclusive to Entain and is further testament to our ambition of being the home of live games shows and continuing to offer our customers the best and most exciting content in the marketplace.”

Adam Lahouiri, Live Casino Commercial & Product Manager at Entain said: “This has been an exciting project to be a part of, working alongside such a talented team at BetGames was a pleasure. We are delighted with the outcome and look forward to expanding our suite of exclusive Game Shows.”

These milestone developments come on the back of the company successfully revamping its Lotto Reloaded studio in recent months. The flagship product is authorised across several key markets including those governed by the UKGC and MGA, whilst also satisfying the regulatory requirements in a variety of South African jurisdictions.

Here we list some of the most popular online gambling games in Italy, and a few suggestion to find the most rewarding ones, so you can start playing right away!

Tips to stay on top of trends in Online casino in Italy

Online casinos are known for an extraordinary rate of change of games and software. For this reason, players may find it challenging to keep up with new games and the best offer on all the platform available online. To complicate things, the Italian regulator ADM is quite strict on all the requirements of the licensed Italian Casino online that is why our tips is to look for non-aams sites. Non-aams follow regulation from regulatory bodies of other countries and you can find specialized sites that review them. Among others, one of our favorites is https://non-aams.it/ which also gives a glimpse of the kind of bonuses offered to the new players. As a rule of thumb, it is important that, whatever review site you choose to find the best Non AAMS casino online, it is updated and applies the HTTPS protocol which is a good indicator of safety. To attract new players they often hold special events with free play and other promotions, and they often inform players of upcoming events on social media so they can join in the fun.

Slot machines: You can’t help but love slot machines!

Slot machines are a popular choice for Italian players because they have many game variations to choose from. Slots also offer players the chance to win big thanks to a number of game features and bonuses, and they are usually free thanks to the many online casino operators that can be reached from Italy. The best offerings are found on specialized sites such as Spin Samurai and Boomerang Casino, which are part of the circuit of non-aams sites and therefore can afford more bonuses and higher payouts. Italian players can choose from a wide variety of casino games available online, including a wide range of slots. Popular online slots include: – Burning Ice 10 – Buffalo Trail Lite – Rocket Reels – Pinup Dolls – Rich of The Mermaid, among others.

Blackjack: a classic game of chance

Blackjack is a card game that involves a dealer and players competing against each other to see who can make the most cards of a specific suit (typically spades, hearts or diamonds). Blackjack is when the player’s card is higher than the dealer’s card but does not exceed 21. Winning at blackjack means betting on the probability of seeing certain cards and not betting on other cards that have a higher probability of being drawn. The game has been played for centuries and there are many variations of the rules that are played in different countries. Blackjack is a popular option for Italian players because it is also one of the most popular casino games in Europe. There are many online blackjack providers, including the popular 888Starz site that offers a variety of blackjack variants and options for Italian players.

Video Poker: For when you need a little bit of everything

Video poker is a game of chance in which the player chooses one of five cards to hold on the poker table and replaces them to create a new hand. The five cards are drawn from a stack that the player does not see. The goal is to get a poker hand composed of specific combinations of cards to get a win from the machine. There are many variations of video poker that offer different combinations of bonus rounds, wild cards, and game features, so players can choose whichever they prefer.
