Following the launch of its new feature-packed Egyptian Reels online slot and ESA Gaming’s portfolio has been certified in Romania, further growing its presence in regulated markets around the world. An “important milestone,” the license will enable the boutique independent provider of iGaming products to partner with local top-tier operators and reach a whole new audience.
Licensed online operators in the Balkan country will now be able to access the innovative games provider’s trademarked EasySwipe family of “lightweight” HTML5 mobile-first games, offering sportsbooks beneficial cross-sell opportunities by allowing players to enjoy quality online casino games without interrupting their sports betting experience.
Currently, the portfolio features six titles including top performers FruitStaxx and Goal Mine, in addition to the recently released casino classic Joker Poker with new Gamble Round and Egyptian Reels, which was launched on February 2, with more to come throughout the year.
“Delighted” to receive another local license that will see its content introduced in the Romanian market, Zorica Smallwood, Director at ESA Gaming, went on to explain…
“Our EasySwipe™ games have been performing strongly in all markets where we are active, providing operators with an important cross-selling option in an ever-increasingly competitive marketplace. We look forward to partnering with Romanian operators and to offering our exciting products to a new audience.”
The online gambling market in the southeastern European country has grown significantly over the last few years, with licenses now held by 29 operators.
Last month, the provider was awarded ISO27001 certification in Romania underlining its commitment to information security standards, with the achievement facilitating its move into other European jurisdictions. ESA Gaming currently holds certifications in Italy, Portugal and Colombia in addition to a Greek and MGA (Malta Gaming Authority) supplier license and plans to further expand this year.
New game release:
The announcement follows the launch of the developer’s latest hit slot Egyptian Reels, which features a fast-paced base game and plenty of features.
Adding to the game’s 3-reels and 3-rows, there is another set of reels located right above the “live” ones and includes Rising Wilds, Wild Stacks and Extra Spins features. If a player lands a full reel, they trigger the Wild Stacks feature and the upper reels are unlocked by an extended wild. When that happens, players are awarded one respin with both of the reel sets active for possible big wins.
Another feature, a Rising Wild can also appear, which moves up one space on the reel, in addition to activating a respin. And in doing so, the upper reels are also unlocked, while the wild continues to trigger respins.
Ramping up the excitement even more, when a player lands three Bonus symbols, they are awarded 10 Extra Spins. During the spins, both of the reel sets are active for all 10, and the Rising Wilds is active during the entire feature.
The ancient Egyptian-themed game is the most recent addition to ESA Gaming’s fast-growing portfolio and joins the EasySwipe collection. All of the titles are designed to provide sportsbooks with additional revenue streams without interrupting the sports betting flow.
