Micro-game hailed a “milestone” in its ongoing regulated market expansion strategy, as the online gaming provider details its entry into the Netherlands.
A first group of Microgaming customers, including a state-owned gaming operator Dutch lottery and its casino brand Toto, were among the first group to receive Dutch remote gaming licenses before opening last week, and are now live with the provider’s content.
This sees over 200 exclusive Microgaming titles becoming available in the market through the company’s aggregation platform, including new and old online slots, as well as a range of progressive jackpot titles.
Additionally, the provider’s range of content is complemented by a selection of over 60 partner games from Inspired, Spearhead Studios, Oryx Gaming and Stakelogic, with a range of titles from Spinstars expected to join them in the not too distant future.
Julie Allison, Director of Markets at Microgaming, explained: âThis decision represents another important step in the continued expansion of Microgaming in the main regulated markets.
âThe Netherlands offers a wealth of opportunities for Microgaming and our customers, and we look forward to supporting their growth in the country for years to come.
âResponsible gaming being at the heart of everything we do, we welcome the comprehensive and forward-thinking approach of the new player protection legislation. “
