NetEnt Breaks into Canadian and Lithuanian Online Gambling Markets

Netent

Gaming giant NetEnt continues to expand into new gambling markets with its betting games now available on the Canadian and Lithuanian regulated markets.

Expanding into Canada

By signing a deal with Americam supplier IGT, the software developer completed its technical integration with provincial lottery operator British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC).

Consequently, thanks to the IGT Connect integration layer supplied to the BCLC, NetEnt has been able to release a range of world-leading games in Canada for the first time. Its launch on PlayNow.com marks the game provider’s first step into the Canadian iGaming market.

“Launching our games to players in British Columbia is an important milestone for us in our expansion in North America,” said Therese Hillman, Group CEO of NetEnt.

“Entering regulated markets is a vital part of our strategy going forward, especially within the WLA segment. I am sure that our exciting games will be much appreciated by BCLC’s players.”

Entering the Lithuanian Market

NetEnt’s has also made its game portfolio available in the Lithuanian online gaming market this week. Its first customer in Lithuania is the established land-based gambling operator TOPsport.

“We follow our growth strategy by strengthening our position on regulated markets and we are very pleased that our popular games are now also available for players in Lithuania,” stated Henrik Fagerlund, managing director of NetEnt Malta and chief product officer of NetEnt.

Founded in 2002, TOPsport was Lithuania’s first betting operator. The company now owes 31 betting shops, 85 gambling venues, 28 slot machine salons of its own brand and online gaming platform Topsport.It.
