Play’n GO has secured certification to provide its content to Portuguese operators, after receiving approval from the country’s regulator IGJ.
The developer also confirmed further expansion is “set to come” following entry into the Swedish and Philippine markets earlier this year.
“We want as many people as possible to enjoy our games,” said CEO Johan Tornqvist. “We also want our clients, both current and future, to be able to rely on us to have a presence wherever they seek to develop their operations.”
The certification has allowed Play’n GO to expand its partnership with Poker- Stars Casino into the Portuguese gaming sphere, granting players across the country access to Play’n GO’s expansive library.
Newly accessible titles for Portuguese players include Rise of Olympus, Sweet Alchemy, and Legacy of Egypt – winner of the 2019 AskGamblers Slot of the Year.
Though the Portuguese gambling market still suffers the punitive sliding tax scale imposed by the government, the country’s online casino gaming revenue for 2018 increased 34 percent to E73.2m over the prior year period.
Play’n GO will be expected to pay 15 percent of GGR up to E5m to the Portuguese authorities, with an additional 15 percent charged on revenue over that figure.
