The Romanian market continues to go from strength-to-strength as Leap Gaming becomes the latest firm to receive a licence for its igaming products. 

Granted by the Romanian National Gambling Office, the Malta-based casino and virtual sports content provider gained its class two permit for its gaming software provisions, allowing Leap to launch its products to B2C operators in Romania. 

Leap also noted that its licence approval serves as “another step” in the company’s expansion path into regulated markets as it follows several licensing “milestones” reached in recent months, such as Sweden, Greece, and Italy. 

The firm’s entry into Romania also continues a flurry of activity in the regulated market in 2022 which has seen a host of companies within the igaming sector embark on their first ventures into the country. 

Earlier this week, Slotmill linked with Avento in a licence agreement that saw the supplier’s titles gain certification for the Romanian market resulting in the latter’s brands gaining access to the former’s catalogue of slot titles. 

In addition, February witnessed a wave of activity which saw the likes of Esa Gaming, Push Gaming, and OKTO, step foot into the country’s regulated space. 

Speaking to CasinoBeats towards the back end of 2021, Robert Lee, the Commercial Director at Realistic Games, stated his company “had an eye” on Romania for some time due to its “well-established gambling heritage”.

He stated: “There’s been a surge in growth in the last few years particularly since igaming was first regulated and while some of that undoubtedly is down to the closure of land-based locations during lockdowns, it has nevertheless left the online sector in a very healthy position.”
