New French Market Entrant Highlights Success from Day One

 

Relax Gaming, known for reinvigorating the poker scene for recreational players, has gone live in the French online poker market with leading Kindred brand, Unibet, following the operator’s swift and successful migration onto the provider’s custom poker platform.

As the first new market entrant into the French market in several years, Relax Gaming’s poker product has proven again that it can outperform the market and offer something new. The product is live following only a ten month custom build, including the planning, certification and launch process. Following an incredibly smooth transition the product has outperformed the high expectations set out for Unibet France from day one.

Unibet’s French customers are enjoying access to Relax Gaming’s intuitive and engaging poker product, which features a custom iteration of the most popular poker cash games including Texas Hold’Em NL and Omaha PL, alongside a reshaped version of the market favourite Sit and Go format, HexaPro. The new take on existing SNG formats gives players the opportunity to win 1,000 times their stake within minutes with only two opponents. The maximum win of 100,000 euros has already been secured by one lucky player.

Relax Gaming has consistently delivered against market trends to achieve five years of unparalleled growth. Its continued support and development for both its poker and bingo products is testament to the care and passion with which it consistently delivers.

Martin Stålros, Relax Gaming COO, said: “We are very pleased to have taken our poker offering live in France, and I am grateful for the talent and support of the Relax Gaming and Unibet France teams in making this seamless migration such a success.

“The early feedback from French players has been astonishing, outperforming our already high-expectations. It is a core part of Relax Gaming’s DNA to continually iterate and improve on the experiences we offer players, and we are excited to now be delivering our best-in-class poker product to them. Launching in France is the first step towards creating a Relax Gaming poker network that can utilize the newly minted legislation around shared liquidity between southern European markets.” adds Stalros

Fabrice Arrondeau from Unibet France, said: “We’re impressed by the professional approach from Relax Gaming and how its product performs. The migration was a huge success and shows exactly why we chose to make this move. The future is looking exceptionally positive.”

Relax Gaming was built on its poker offering and is a next-generation supplier, now providing fresh content and over 570 games. It is significantly growing its global footprint, having signed more than 50 new commercial deals in the past few months.

Mobile poker game Zynga Poker has partnered with Emmy Award winner Brad Garrett for a special “Celebrity Home Game” sweepstakes event.

By completing challenges daily in the Zynga Poker, two lucky players will win seats at a celebrity card game in Southern California, hosted by Garrett himself. Zynga will donate up to $100,000 to the Maximum Hope Foundation, a non-profit organisation founded by Garrett that provides financial stability for parents of children diagnosed with life-limiting conditions.

“What I love about Zynga Poker is that you can practice your game without having to worry about your ‘tells’ or poker table etiquette – it’s just about the cards. I can make a sincere pledge to the winners of this sweepstakes – when you’re at my Home Game, we’ll be playing by these same rules. Check your poker face at the door, and get ready to have some fun,” Brad Garrett said.

“Poker isn’t a game of chance – it’s all about showmanship and skill, and that’s something Brad Garrett has in spades – no matter what he says. We’re proud to bring our players an opportunity to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime poker night, hosted by a legend in comedy and a hero to families in need. Now our players have the opportunity to show off their skills and prove that lady luck plays favorites,” Bernard Kim, Zynga’s President of Publishing said.
