GIG CCO Ben Clemes mentioned in a comment:
I am excited that we have gone live in Romania with Magic Jackpot, a well-recognised local brand with a retail footprint across the country. GiG’s technical igaming platform, combined with the local experience of Superbet and operational expertise at Magic Jackpot, will provide a market-leading experience to their players. It’s a proud moment for GiG to power the launch of a new brand while entering another regulated jurisdiction, which we have seen accelerate over the past few years, and we look forward to developing our presence further throughout 2021.
Romania has a rapidly-growing gaming scene that has more than doubled in size in the last few years, and in 2020, amassed a GGR of about €1.4bn (source: H2 Gaming Capital, 2020).
Magnus Petersson, Magic Jackpot co-founder also noted:
The Romanian project started back in June and was a completely new market for us, but with the help from Superbet and GIG we managed to pull it off in eight months. Considering it is a highly regulated market, eight months is a great achievement we all can be proud of. We’re fortunate to partner up with the largest sports betting and casino operator in Romania and among the top 30 in the world.
