Gvc And Igt Awarded Romanian Licensing

Expand presence in another regulated market

GVC Holdings and International Game Technology are the latest to receive licensing from the Romanian National Gambling Office (ONJN).
The ONJN granted GVC Holdings a full and permanent 10-year licence to operate sports betting and casino games in the country, via its fully owned subsidiary, Headlong Limited. In addition, the Group was also awarded a Class 2 licence to supply software, affiliate marketing and hosting services to Headlong.
InfoPowa readers will recall, GVC has been operating its SportingBet brand in Romania under the terms of an interim licence.
International Game Technology (IGT) obtained two Romanian Class II licenses, for platform management and software provision allowing it to serve Romanian customers through its remote game server.
"The granting of these licenses in Romania further enhances the IGT group's presence in key regulated markets, and extends our support for our customers' growth strategy," Gianluca Ballocci, IGT Vice President Commercial Interactive Sales and B2C Operations, said. "We look forward to delivering the industry's most robust game portfolio and well-known IGT game content to operators and players throughout Romania."

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
