Just days after releasing its latest slot title and casino games development company, Red Tiger Gaming, is now live in Switzerland via the launch of a good portion of its portfolio with the Central European country’s first licensed virtual casino courtesy of the Gamanza platform.

To start, 19 games have been released by the Isle of Man developer and are available by way of Grand Casino Baden’s Jackpots.ch brand.

According to the official press release

…the online casino had operated as a social casino/free-play site but made the move to real money gaming after on June 7, 2019, receiving approval from Switzerland’s Federal Council.

ESBK approval:

Permits for four brick-and-mortar properties, including Grand Casino Baden and its sister venue Grand Casino Davos, along with Grand Casino Luzerne and the Swiss Casinos group’s Pfäffikon venue, were previously approved by the Eidgenössische Spielbankenkommission (ESBK) / Federal Gaming Commission prior to the July 1 launch of the country’s regulated online market.

Titles offering:

Successful titles such as Dragon’s Fire and Mystery Reels along with recent Global Gaming Awards “Slot of the Year” nominee, pirate-themed adventure and sequel to Pirates’ Plenty: Battle for Gold, Pirates’ Plenty, will now be available to players.

Commenting on the exciting news, Commercial Director for Red Tiger Gaming, Chris Looney, said…

“We’re very pleased to launch with Grand Casino Baden and are excited about introducing not only new players but a new country to our titles. Red Tiger is always looking to enter regulated markets such as Switzerland, and we’re looking forward to building a strong partnership with Grand Casino Baden and their platform provider Gamanza.”

Enhanced arsenal:

Also explaining the significance of the launch was Grand Casino Baden’s Online Casino Leader, Marcel Tobler, who added…

“Red Tiger’s games have really impressed us, and we are delighted to be the first operator in Switzerland to have access to them. It’s an exciting time for everyone in the market and having internationally renowned and commercially proven games in our arsenal is a real boost at launch.”

Meanwhile, Founder and Chief Executive Officer for Malta-based ISO27001 certified software & services company, Gamanza, Magnus Lindberg, added…

“This is another proud moment for Gamanza as we begin our partnership with Red Tiger, one of the hottest game providers around right now. I have no doubt they’ll enjoy great success in the Swiss market and add a lot of value to our offering moving forward as we help other operators take advantage of the opportunities in the country.”

Having been accredited with the leading information security certification, ISO 27001, in November 2018, Red Tiger announced at the end of April that it would be one of the iGaming industry’s first providers to launch in the mountainous country upon the market’s opening on July 1, 2019, after 30 of its most in-demand games were certified in the territory.

In an effort to compel local players to utilize only those sites run by domestic providers and combat gambling addictions, Switzerland recently implemented a blanket ban on foreign iGaming operators as part of the Money Gaming Act that legalized online gambling in the country.

According to to the June report, the new law will only reportedly allow gamblers in Switzerland to wager on sites that have been approved by the Swiss Federal Gaming Board while the state is to collect tax revenues to use to fund a range of anti-addiction programs. Officials in the sovereign state claimed at the time that such problems afflicted approximately 75,000 people in the small Alpine nation and costs society almost $512 million every year.
