Inspired Gaming Group has rolled out its virtual sports product in the Belgian market for the first time following a deal with licensed operator Circus Group.
Inspired said that it is the first supplier to go live in the regulated Belgian gaming market following the launch of its virtual sports games on Circus.be.
The company will initially be supplying four of its virtual sports games to Circus.be including football, horseracing, greyhounds and tennis.
Utilising Inspired’s Virtuals Dashboard, the operator will be able to schedule the four different event channels to each broadcast a new event every three minutes, creating a total of nearly 2,000 betting opportunities a day via the internet and on mobile devices.
Players can choose from a wide range of bet markets, place accumulator bets across multiple races, and watch the result unfold via direct streaming of events.
Circus Group CEO Emmanuel Mewissen said that adding Inspired’s virtual sports to the company’s online platform was a “fantastic extension” to its entertainment portfolio.
“We are always looking to provide fresh and exciting content and by showcasing Inspired’s virtual sports we continue to maintain our position as the pioneer of online betting in Belgium,” said Mewissen. “Inspired was the obvious choice to provide quality virtual sports products that are proven to be popular with players and generate impressive incomes around the world.”
Established in 1992, Circus Group operates seventeen venues across Belgium, including fifteen gambling halls and two land-based casinos, Casino de Spa and Casino de Namur. The company currently offers three licensed online gaming sites in Belgium - Circus.be, Casino777.be and Pokerstars.be (through a partnership with PokerStars).
Steve Rogers, Inspired Gaming’s senior vice president of virtual sports and mobile, said: “We are delighted to be working with Belgium’s leading online operator, Circus.be, and are expecting to see impressive results.
“This is a great time to launch with Circus as there will be a spike in all sports bets during the football World Cup in June based on our experience.”
