Prima Networks, iSoftBet Secure Romanian License from ONJNPublished June 26, 2016 by Florin P
The Romanian gambling regulatory body grants a Class II license to Prima Networks; iSoftBet receives license as well.
Romanian regulators are diligently working towards creating a unified legislation for online gambling. Many online casinos and bookmakers are now applying for a license in order to continue their operations within national borders. Prima Networks has already secured such a license from the Oficiul National pentru Jocuri de Noroc, the Romanian gambling regulatory body.
A Step Forward for Microgaming Powered Prima Networks
ONJN has granted the Class II license to Prima Networks, which is needed for providing local players with casino services. It covers the distribution and production of software for the entire gambling industry and also allows the owners to operate game management platforms. As a result, they will be able to go live and present prospective customers with all the benefits of the Microgaming’s Quickfire platform.
The platform stands out from the crowd with its impressive collection of games that can also be played on mobile devices. Prima Networks will not limit itself to casino games and is expected to also offer poker products, in addition to Microgaming content. The Class II license secured from ONJN is an important milestone for the company who also offers its services legally in other 12 European countries.
The Wheels Are Set in Motion
The Romanian gambling market is slowly thawing after the deadlock of late 2015. Many online casinos and gambling operators were forced out after their licenses were suspended. Players had few legal options and many were in danger of paying huge fines if caught playing at a blacklisted online casino. The fact that Prima Networks has secured a license is important not only for the company, but also the industry.
There is a lot of interest and enthusiasm for online gambling among Romanians, who enjoy betting on sports, playing casino games and poker. The ONJN just gave a clear signal that international casinos are welcomed, as long as they apply for a license.
iSoftBet in Romania As Well
On Friday it was also announced that software provider iSoftBet has secured a license from ONJN. iSoftBet has been on a roll lately, after securing an agreement to supply games to the Hungarian online casino operated by Las Vegas Casino Diamond Ltd; this came after yet another content deal with SNAI-Cogetech.
