The online and mobile gaming industry is clearly thriving if EGT Interactive’s figures are anything to go by, as the company has seen an increase of more than 75% in employee numbers, from 65 to 115 employees since 2016. Strengthening the company’s continuous global expansion, the recruitment drive has seen the company invest in new appointments across nearly every aspect of their portfolio, from sales and development, to systems administration, product management, quality assurance and HR.

Commenting on the rapid upsurge in staff at EGT Interactive, Managing Director Todor Zahariev, said: “The key to successful growth is to choose people carefully. Our new appointments reflect this by introducing new practices and by furthering a co-operative and kind attitude towards the growing collective, which makes up EGT Interactive.”

He added: “Growing to 115 staff members takes a lot of preparation especially with so many new key appointments. Our largest expansion in 2018 can be seen across our training programs. We’re preparing for this by carefully planning the needed resource, both human and technological, whilst also implementing pre-assessed timeframes, in which things should happen.”

EGT Interactive’s recruitment drive has seen new experts join almost every sector of its business with Product Owner, DevOps Engineer and Chief Accountant being some of the most recent appointments in the beginning of this year. Zahariev explained: “Our team has grown significantly in recent months, meaning we have further resource to target international territories, to demonstrate new products and increase our presence at international gaming events. It is not all about hard work though, a key part of our employee focus is directed towards a good work-life balance with a fun and professional atmosphere in the offices. Our IT team in particular is very competitive, so we try to retain them by providing adequate social benefits like, health insurance, sports card, beverages, fun Fridays, transport benefits, etc. It’s a lot of fun and great for staff morale!”

The company’s impressive growth in recent years supports its growing product portfolio with new developments in its fruit and character slots based on the classical casino games all set for 2018. The company also recently issued 40 Lucky King and has plans to release a new title, 81 Wins, in the near future.

The Romanian government has reduced the gambling turnover tax to 2 per cent. Earlier, the turnover taxes, known as gambling participation fees, were 5 per cent turnover tax for online operators, and a 3 per cent tax for land-based casinos, as per an emergency ordinance. The new ordinance slaps a, as “gambling participation fees.” The gambling operators have to pay the gambling participation fees in addition to the already existing 16 per cent tax on the gross gambling revenue.

The lowering of the turnover tax will come as a relief to the gambling operators. However, it has been reported that the government will retroactively apply the tax to last year’s performance of gambling operators with a Romanian license. Operators are given a deadline, till February 25, to pay this amount.

The Romanian government has done this before in the past—retroactively charging the gambling industry to help fund its budget requirements. In 2015, operators which were going to be licensed at the time were required to pay back taxes, which was 20 per cent of the revenue they generated from Romanian punters since 2009. The government made a last-minute announcement to force operators to pay the amount.
