Working closely with the National Betting Authority of Cyprus and The Cyprus National Gaming & Casino Supervision Commission, we have the right connections and formula to open up Cyprus as the next iGaming hub in the region. The 3rd Annual Cyprus Gaming Show, which attracted major operators such as Megabet Plus and Parimatch, has provided software providers, payment solutions and relevant stakeholders such as BetConstruct, Digitain, ECOMMPAY, Digital Choo, Quazard Uncharted Gaming, Infocredit Group, Russian Media Group and others, the opportunity to grow within the Eastern Mediterranean gaming market. We hope to continue to grow the iGaming market in this region for the years to come.” – Yudi Soetjiptadi, Managing Director, Eventus International
