Scientific Games achieves strategic milestone with online expansion into Romania

Tuesday 26th July 2016
Scientific Games Corporation announced today that the Company is one of the first licensed online content providers in Romania, effective July 1, 2016. Exciting gaming content from SG Interactive, a division of Scientific Games, is already online in Romania with key players such as 888 Casino, Netbet, BWIN, Unibet, Betfair and Circus. Players in this market can now experience popular titles such as Raging Rhino®, Zeus® III, and Spartacus Gladiator of Rome™.

This expansion is a part of the organization’s strategy to obtain rapid approval in all newly regulated jurisdictions and reflects the quality and strength of SG Interactive in market development, compliance, legal and finance. The SG Interactive portfolio of Las Vegas-style, proprietary and popular licensed games is available in 10 jurisdictions across the globe. The Company will leverage its new market expertise when it enters Italy and Portugal later this year.

Bob Hays, Vice President Commercial, Interactive at Scientific Games, said, “Bringing our products to a new jurisdiction is always exciting. With such a strong audience in Europe, we knew a rapid expansion into Romania focused on providing one of the deepest and broadest portfolios of content to operators and players alike would be beneficial for everyone. The players there are passionate about our content, and with many of our existing customers already licensed to operate in Romania, we’ll be able to hit the ground running with our proven portfolio. We anticipate this being the first of many efficient expansions into newly regulated locations.”
