Entertainment Laboratories has bolstered the offering of its Optibet brand on the Lithuanian market after welcoming content from live dealer gaming provider Ezugi.

The collaboration comes shortly after the Lithuanian regulator passed new regulations to allow live casino, and follows Ezugi securing its own certification to enter the region last month.

The partnership will see more than 30 blackjack, roulette and baccarat tables added to the Optibet brand, including a Russian language roulette and speed roulette variants.

Enlabs says that it is striving to ensure that it’s Optibet brand offers “a one stop shop” where customers access “high quality products” to suit all preferences, with its live casino addition reinforcing its strategy.

Chris Davis, head of gaming at Enlabs, stated: “We are very excited to be able to add a new and very important vertical to our fast-growing brand in Lithuania. I’m confident that the combination of Ezugi’s high quality live casino and the unique promotional tools of our new gaming platform will be a huge success.”

Striving to grow its presence in regulated markets worldwide, Ezugi, which has formed a part of Evolution Gaming Group since January 2019, became “the first live dealer to launch in Lithuania”.

The supplier said that it had targeted the jurisdiction due to the “tremendous potential in the market as live casino continues to gather popularity with players around the world”. Certification came after testing standards were successfully met.

Certification in Lithuania comes shortly after Ezugi secured approvals from regulators on the Isle of Man as well as in Estonia and Bulgaria.

Pang Goh, business development director at Ezugi, said upon achieving approval: “We are delighted to have secured certification and will be completed several successful launches in the coming weeks with our key partners in Lithuania 

“The team has done an incredible job when it comes to ensuring our games meet the high standards set by the regulator making us confident of our ability to meet them.”
