Regulated markets NetEnt
NetEnt keeps delivering global growth by strengthening its position in regulated online casino markets. NetEnt was one of the first iGaming suppliers to enter the regulated Italian market in 2011 and adapted its systems for entry into Denmark in 2012 while going live in Spain on the very day the regulators granted licenses in 2015. NetEnt followed up with New Jersey (USA), Mexico, Canada, UK, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Czech Republic, and Portugal. Today, no supplier is active in more regulated markets than NetEnt.
It was in December 2016, the regulated online casino market of Portugal was added to this long list when a selection the thrilling NetEnt Games went live with online gaming operator Betclic in Portugal. Betclic started to offer online games in Portugal earlier in 2016, being the first operator to go live in the newly regulated market. Entering the regulated online casino market in Portugal was yet another milestone for NetEnt and now yet another milestone in the Portuguese market has been reached with the NetEnt Games going live with PokerStars Casino in Portugal.
