With this new market that Microgaming is joining, their strategy continues to be one of expansion into regulated markets from all over the world. Other recent markets that they joined in 2019 included Czech Republic and Sweden.
As for ESC Online, the leader of the online casino market in Portugal, it was the first one to be licensed in the country’s regulated market. Their portfolio of games includes not just slots, but also roulette and blackjack, and it follows the same principles as casinos from land-based locations, trying to offer online players a great experience.
After an easy integration with the Microgaming platform, ESC Online now has access to the company’s full collection of games, which is now available for their players as well.
Microgaming’s Andrew Clucas mentions that they’re delighted about the opportunity to join Portugal’s market, via ESC Online. It’s a leading brand when it comes to online gaming, and they’re happy to provide them with games.
Rui Magalhaes, from Estoril Sol Digital, also mentions that it’s important for them to provide players with a great customer experience and excellent content. Their new partnership with Microgaming shows their commitment in this area. He mentions that they expect to remain market leaders in Portugal, following this integration.
