Slots and table games provider Habanero has continued its European expansion into 2020 after entering Romania for the first time alongside operator Winbet.

Signed as a continuation of a partnership agreed with EGT Ukraine last year, lauded as “hugely successful,” the deal sees EGT’s Winbet brand integrate 58 Habanero titles certified by Romania’s gambling authority ONJN. 

“We aim to deliver premium entertainment experiences at Winbet, and we’re thrilled to be the first in the Romanian market to integrate Habanero’s immersive gaming portfolio,” commented Mark Adonia, COO at Winbet Romania.

“Habanero are in hot demand across the globe and we’re very happy to be first in the Romanian market to be able to offer them. I’m sure our Winbet players will enjoy their games tremendously.”

The latest in a succession of market entries for Habanero as part of its ambitious plans for European expansion, Winbet follows a string of partnerships entered across Europe in the past 12 months, including in Croatia, Lithuania, Georgia, the UK and Portugal.

Habanero states that it’s “ready to build on an outstanding 2019,” with the provider eyeing expansion across Europe and South America during the year.

Arcangelo Lonoce, European head of business development at Habanero, said of the link-up: “Following a record-breaking 2019 for global growth at Habanero, we’re delighted to be kicking-off 2020 by partnering with Romania’s leading operator.

“As one of Europe’s true rising stars, Romania is one of our many key targets for this year and we’re looking forward to introducing players to our innovative catalogue of games. Expect plenty more deals to be announced soon enough.”

Earlier this week B2B gaming solutions provider Oryx Gaming significantly increased its presence in the Romanian market and entering a content distribution deal with Winbet.

Under the terms of the deal Winbet is to gain access to the Oryx games platform’s custom content from suppliers including Kalmaba Games, Gamomat and Golden Hero, as well as Oryx Hub, which offers a portfolio of casino games from a selection of more than 8,000 titles and 80 providers.
