Wazdan enter the Czech Republic to continue ‘vital’ market expansions

GGPoker has expanded its European footing as the firm confirms its ambitions to open to the Czech market in the “near future”.

Wazdan has solidified its position in Europe as the games provider marks its debut in the Czech Republic’s regulated igaming market. 

As part of the deal, a total of 46 of the studio’s titles will go live in the Czech market, with operators in the region gaining access to games such as 9 Lions, Fortune Reels, Hot Slot: 777 Crown, Power of Gods: Hades and Sun of Fortune. 

Andrzej Hyla, Chief Commercial Officer at Wazdan, commented: “Entering regulated markets is of vital importance to our continued growth, and the Czech Republic is an exciting jurisdiction in the middle of Europe.

“We have enjoyed a number of market entries this year, all around the globe, which proves the reach of our comprehensive product portfolio.” 

This latest market entry is the seventh market in which Wazdan has debuted this year, following its approvals in Bulgaria, Ontario, Michigan, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands.

The Czech igaming market was regulated in 2017, and since then has gone from strength to strength, with GGR hitting an estimated €1bn Euros in 2022, according to data from the regulator.

Wazdan’s latest movements continued a busy end of 2022 for the provider, in a month that has witnessed the studio ink an agreement with Paf to strengthen its Spanish standing and integrate its content with Alphawin.
