The quite liberal Italian gambling laws allow operations of online casinos and online sportsbooks in Italy under strict control, regulation, and, naturally, taxation. Italian gaming market is one of the fastest growing in Europe with more and more citizens joining the fun or real money online gambling.
The localized online gaming solution from Evolution Gaming, developed for bwin, includes among others highly popular Venezia Roulette and Ventuno Blackjack, where dealers are native Italian speakers, previously professionally employed by land-based casinos in the country.
Southern European Director for bwin, Paolo Di Feo, told Italy gambling news: “bwin enjoys an extremely strong brand presence in Italy. The Evolution Live Casino platform was the natural choice for bwin as it gives us the opportunity to further strengthen our brand in this local market with dedicated tables & native speaking dealers from day one.”
He also went on to add: “The Evolution services we have selected also give us full flexibility to serve high volumes of online players as we continue to grow our share of the Italian online gaming market.”
Evolution Gaming Italy CEO, Gionata La Torre, also shared some comments: “As the first Live Casino fully approved by AAMS, Evolution has led the online Live Casino market in Italy from the very beginning. We’re now delighted to have been selected by yet another key global brand and to be able to offer bwin the flexibility of branding and service they desire.”
He concluded by saying: “bwin has now gone live with one of the most comprehensive sets of Live Casino services available in Italy, which opens up enormously exciting opportunities for them.”
