Virtual sports software developer Kiron Interactive has received approval from Italian online gaming regulator AAMS to begin testing its virtual sports gaming platform which has been developed in partnership with digital media specialist Vermantia.
The new platform is expected to go live in the next six to eight weeks with four virtual games channels, powered by games content from Kiron, as well as three online solutions, pending final approval from AAMS.
Vermantia, which offers a range of media broadcasting and online services for gaming operators, has already signed up two clients to the platform in Sisal and Intralot Italia, and offers a customisable solution to suit market and client requirements.
Kiron’s virtual games platform will go up against established provider Inspired Gaming Group, which has secured deals with eight leading operators already in Italy, including the likes of Microgame, Lottomatica and Gamenet.
Alongside its activities in the Italian market, Vermantia also operates a TV gaming offering for Greek monopoly OPAP and has partnered with the likes of France’s PMU and South African racing operator Phumelela.
Kiron Interactive, based in Johannesburg, has previously supplied its virtual horse and greyhound racing software to the likes of Ladbrokes, SBOBet and Australia’s Tabcorp, while the products are also integrated with the EveryMatrix platform.
