Evolution enters Argentinian casino market and brings along NetEnt
Since the end of 2020, NetEnt belongs to the Evolution Group. For this reason, the year 2021 was a rather quiet year for the slots supplier. There was barely any news to share. And we enjoyed the launch of a humble 10 new NetEnt slots. Just before the end of the year 2021, there was one event that needs to be shared, though. Evolution Group launched its live casino portfolio in the Argentinian casino market, bringing along NetEnt and Red Tiger.
The newly regulated Buenos Aires Province iGaming market
I say Argentinian casino market to make it clear we’re talking Argentina here. But basically, the newly regulated iGaming market involves Buenos Aires.
Argentina is currently regulating gambling on a state-by-state basis. This means that it’s not the entire country that’s regulating online gambling at once.
The licensing process for the Buenos Aires Province started in June 2019. The criteria used for the selection by the Provincial Institute of Lottery and Casinos (IPLyC) included industry experience, financial capacity and data security.
Evolution Live Casino launch Buenos Aires Province iGaming market
Since the opening of the Argentinian casino market in Q4 of 2021, a good number of international operators in cooperation with local operators. Argenbingo, in partnership with William Hill; Pasteko together with bet365; Hotel Casino Tandil with Playtech and 888 Holdings with Boldt.
Among the licensees, also BetWarrior, a sportsbetting and casino platform of Argentine origin. The platform allows betting on more than 200 thousand live sporting events while it offers over 1600 online casino games.
With Evolution’s live casino games portfolio live with operator BetWarrior.bet.ar, the game supplier enters the newly regulated Argentinian casino market for the first time.
Evolution is also set to go live with other licensed operators in the Buenos Aires Province iGaming market. The supplier expects this to happen in the coming weeks.
In addition to the newly regulated Buenos Aires Province in Argentina, Evolution said that it will be ready to launch in the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires. This newly regulated market is expected to approve live casino content in the near future.
“This is a very exciting time for operators. But also for the players in the Buenos Aires Province and Autonomous City of Buenos Aires. Evolution has a long record of being first-to-market for operators across the world. Our games represent the very best of online gaming in regulated online markets,” said Evolution head of operations LatAm Mónica Umaña.
NetEnt enters Argentinian casino market under the wing of Evolution
Evolution Group took over NetEnt in December 2020. So, it’s only logical that our all-time favourite casino content supplier enters the Argentinian casino market as well. 100 of NetEnt’s outstanding video slots are now available for players to enjoy on the website of BetWarrior.
“Evolution offers a wide selection of games in the Buenos Aires Province. In live casino there are numerous Roulette and Blackjack variants, and the award-winning Lightning Roulette, to name but a few. For players who prefer slots, there is a massive choice of top-performing titles, including NetEnt’s Starburst™ and Divine Fortune Megaways™, as well as a selection of Red Tiger titles. And this is just the beginning – our brands are constantly developing innovative new titles which we will look to introduce as the market grows,” said Evolution head of operations LatAm Mónica Umaña.
