NetEnt launches its games on the regulated online casino market in Serbia
2016 has been an incredible year for NetEnt when it comes to the company’s expansion in regulated markets and it seems 2017 is going to be just as successful. The premium supplier entered a total of 4 newly-regulated markets in 2016. In the first half year of 2017, NetEnt managed to add two new online casino markets to the long list as it was halfway May that NetEnt obtained a license as supplier in British Columbia, Canada while it is today the company launched its award-winning games on the regulated online casino market in Serbia.
2016 has been a great year for NetEnt in many ways, but especially when it comes to the entries of regulated online casino markets. It was in 2016 that NetEnt entered regulated markets in Romania, Mexico, Portugal, and Bulgaria. So far, 2017 has been good for two new market entries after NetEnt Americas has been approved as supplier to the only licensed operator in British Columbia, the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) and now Serbia as well.
Since the implementation of the gambling legislation in 2011, Serbia has closed down many illegal online casino websites and cut-down on black market activities. It is currently required that an operator will have a presence in Serbia to be granted a licence.
Without a license, NetEnt has launched a selection of its award-winning games with Mozzart, the leading gaming operator in Serbia. Mozzart was founded in 2001, offering the biggest network of betting premises in Serbia, but also successfully operates in Bosnia-Herzegovina (Republika Srpska), Romania and Macedonia, with over 460 branches and more than 2,500 employees. Mozzart’s betting services are known for the highest betting odds in the Serbian gambling market. Besides that, Mozzart also produces slot machines and accessories in cooperation with the leading names in the business.
”We keep delivering on our global growth strategy by strengthening our position on regulated markets and we are very pleased that our popular games are now also available for players in Serbia”, says Enrico Bradamante, Chief of European Market Operations and MD of NetEnt Malta Ltd.
