Online casino software provider Pragmatic Play has expanded its existing agreement with Peruvian operator Doradobet after making its live casino portfolio available to the online operator, while also extending its commitment to helping non-governmental organizations (NGO) having donated €7,700 to the Homeless Animal Hospital in Romania.

The deal with the online casino and sports betting operator in Latin America, which according to Pragmatic “has been the site of some tangible commercial success” for them in recent months, will see the provider’s popular live dealer offering made available to customers of Doradobet.

Seamless integration:

Included in the tie-up that expands the existing commercial agreement between the pair are classics such as Baccarat and Roulette, as well as Mega Wheel and Mega Roulette, the company’s first game show-inspired hits.

The Peruvian gambling operator adds the new vertical to its games lobby after previously taking the supplier’s award-winning slots portfolio live and performing “extremely well” for the firm, according to Augusto Pflucker, Director at Doradobet. He went on to say that they are “delighted to add another vertical from the supplier to our casino; we can’t wait to see how our players receive their games.”

Also commenting on the new addition, Lorenzo Johnson, who is the Director for VirtualSoft, the Peruvian operator’s platform provider, said…

“The swift integration due to the single API connection was a smooth process and we are pleased to have successfully added this vertical to our platform for our operator Doradobet.”

LatAm growth:

Pragmatic Play has in recent months enjoyed significant growth in the region as it closes in on the one-year anniversary of opening its LatAm hub based in Argentina while at the same time appointing Victor Arias as its new Vice President of Latin American Operations. The move, along with a series of deals at the time with leading regional and national operators, was part of the company’s effort to establish itself within regulated territories across the continent.

Arias used a company press release to also comment on the new deal, stating that the expansion of their agreement “is yet again a sign that our multi-product portfolio offers impressive value to operators and we couldn’t be happier to grow our relationship with Doradobet further.’

He noted that…

“Latin America has been the site of some tangible commercial success for us in recent months and we’re very pleased the momentum is continuing.”

Charitable efforts:

Meanwhile, in its continuing effort to support NGOs and key societal causes, the multi-product content provider has donated €7,700 to the Homeless Animal Hospital in Romania. The organization assists and treats animals that come from low-income families and or belong to disadvantaged groups, while the Romania Animal Rescue leads the project in partnership with World Animal Veterinary Emissaries.

The latter sees 20 doctors, nurses, and auxiliary staff help dogs and cats that have been abandoned and are in shelters and whose owners are not able to afford private veterinary treatment.

Head of Games Development for the Gibraltar-based company, Cătălin Bratosin said 

“Pragmatic Play integrates kindness, respect, and compassion in all aspects of its vision and supports those who fight for a safe, healthy, cruelty-free world.

“With the donations received, the Homeless Animal Hospital puts all its efforts into rescuing, treating, rehabilitating, feeding, and sterilizing more animals than ever before. The NGO saves the lives of many stray pets, offering emergency care to all animals in need.”

Bratosin added that he is “proud to be part of a company that proactively contributes to the well-being of so many communities, recognising its responsibilities beyond the iGaming industry and improving the lives of others out of genuine compassion.”

Other recent NGO donations:

Pragmatic Play’s donation to the Homeless Animal Hospital follows a €21,000 donation to The Metropolis Philanthropic Foundation, which goes toward the cost of redeveloping the children’s oncology ward at the Clinical Institute Fundeni in Bucharest. The NGO focuses on protecting children who have been separated from their parents and helping them to integrate into society. Most recently the foundation has focused on aiding public hospitals rehabilitate sections dedicated to children.

Having donated to numerous causes in Malta, Pragmatic also contributed to Women for Women on International Women’s Day in March and in December 2020 donated €30,000 to three separate NGOs in Malta, including €10,000 each to the St. Jeanne Antide Foundation, Malta Hospice Movement, and Good Shepherd Sisters.
