Malta-based live dealer specialist Authentic Gaming has expanded into the regulated Latvian and Estonian iGaming markets for the first time following a deal with operator Optibet.

Optibet players will gain access to live roulette games streamed from the floors of Authentic’s land-based casino partners.

This includes The Platinum Casino at the Radisson BLU Hotel in Bucharest, Casino International Batumi at the Hilton Hotel in Georgia, Italy’s Saint-Vincent Casino, Denmark’s Royal Casino and Connecticut’s Foxwoods Resort Casino in the US.

The operator will also have access to the supplier’s recently launched Live Arena Studio in Malta, featuring six tables and four different game formats including Authentic Gaming’s new Blaze variant, which is set against a glitzy gameshow backdrop.

“This is a breakthrough deal for us, and forms part of our strategy to enter regulated markets in Europe and beyond,” said Authentic Gaming CEO Jonas Delin. “The Latvian market is very exciting as gaming laws prohibit Latvian based live dealer suppliers from targeting the local market, but through our partnership with Optibet we can swiftly establish Authentic Gaming as the market leader in live roulette.”

Chris Davis, head of casino at Optibet subsidiary Lifland Gaming, added: "The Latvian market is extremely limited in regards to its live casino offering but we intend to change that.

“We chose Authentic Gaming because of their high quality video stream, intuitive UI and player-driven functionality. We love the product and I'm sure our customers will too."
