ESA Gaming agreed to provide its EasySwipe titles to local operator Casino Portugal, marking the supplier’s first step into the promising Portuguese gaming market.
Entering a new booming market
Following a certification process, ESA Gaming has just made its debut into the Portuguese market through a partnership signed with Casino Portugal.
Zorica Smallwood, Director at ESA Gaming, said: “Entering new markets is a key focus for us this year as we look to further expand the reach of our products. Portugal is a market of great potential and we are excited to make inroads into the country together with Casino Portugal, a leading and highly regarded local operator”.
Portugal is a market with a lot of promise, whom online gaming revenue has increased by 58% during the fourth quarter of 2020 with online slots accounting for 71% of gameplay.
Let’s note that 15 operators have licences to offer both online gaming and sports betting in the country.
Something “unique to a crowded marketplace”
Through the agreement, ESA will supply its portfolio of EasySwipe games to the Casino Portugal customers, including Fruit Staxx – with further titles due to be released later this year.
According to the supplier, the launch of its EasySwipe portfolio in the country will help bring something “unique to a crowded marketplace”. It will also allow sportsbooks to “offer players the best quality casino games without disrupting the sports betting portfolio”.
António Laranjo, Co-CEO at Casino Portugal, added: “Through this partnership with ESA Gaming we will be able to add a new layer of content to our existing offering. EasySwipe games will be a great addition to our casino portfolio, and we are thrilled to be the first operator in the country to offer their titles to our growing customer base.”
