Establishing ourselves with the largest gaming operator in the jurisdiction is a testament to the phenomenal success and global recognition our titles have accrued.
“We’re excited for Greek players to be entertained by our catalogue of hits with the entry serving as a microcosm of the incredible success we have been enjoying in recent years. We look forward to rolling out our titles to more operators within the jurisdiction and seeing the reception our slots receive from players and operators in another growing region.”
Vangelis Dedoulis, Director of Product, Gaming & Rewards at Kaizen Gaming, said: “Push Gaming’s slots have become synonymous with offering entertainment-focused experiences that have thrilled players around the world.
