planetwin365, the Italy-facing brand of Austrian bookmaker SKS365 Group, has selected Global Bet to supply a range of virtual sports content across its portfolio of 1,000 betting shops.
The launch of the virtual sports games across planetwin365’s retail estate will be followed by the roll-out of the games for the company’s Italian website and mobile platforms later this year.
Global Bet has been active in the Italian market since 2014, when it was approved by the country’s gambling regulator AAMS to offer virtual sports to operators in the country. It has also sealed partnerships with Nigerian operator 1960bet and distributes its games via the EveryMatrix platform.
““planetwin365 have been one of Global Bet’s key partners for a long time and this expansion into land based Italian operations is an exciting opportunity for all of us,” Global Bet chief executive Daniel Grabner commented.
“This partnership with planetwin365 is a further step in our group's strategy to offer our premium virtual sports products to Italy´s regulated operators.”
Planetwin365 chief executive Thomas Smallwood described Italy as a key market for virtual sports in Europe, and said that it was crucial for his company to choose the right virtual sports provider to expand into the vertical.
“Global Bet offer new products and game quality like no other available on the market,” he said. “Having worked with them for a number of years, their innovation and passion to develop their games allows us to be highly confident that this partnership will be a great success.”
