Online gambling software company Softswiss has increased the number of regulated markets that it is able to supply games to after its Game Aggregator recently passed a security and audit conducted by Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ) accredited testing company, Asensi Technologies, expanding the proposition to Spain.
The rigorous examination of the game content aggregation software by Asensi reportedly included each individual technical integration being tested with a game provider entity.
Courtesy of the certification by the Spanish testing company and the body responsible for the regulation of both land-based and online gambling in the Southern European country, the Game Aggregator is now able to solicit its in-demand services to gaming entities licensed in Spain.
According to the news release, normally, local operators in Spain wishing to integrate with a game studio or developer would be required to pass a comparable security audit in order to be certified. That means, rather than having to spend additional time and resources for every single integration to add game providers, operators need only to secure one certificate; one between the Game Aggregator and their online gaming entity.
“The move towards regulated markets has been on our radar for a while. The Game Aggregator already offers games for regulated markets Estonia, Greece, Latvia, Romania, Serbia, Ukraine and international ones such as Curacao, Isle of Man, and Malta. We are pleased to be adding Spain to that list,” read a statement from Tatyana Kaminskaya, Head of Game Aggregator for Softswiss.
Kaminskaya explained that where Spain’s regulatory framework is concerned, it is known as a “very demanding market,” for operators and software suppliers such as Softswiss. “What we want to do is make the lives of operators easier by getting all gaming content from one game hub.”
According to the news release, soon, the Game Aggregator will be sharing news about the first client that launches in Spain‘s regulated gaming market.
The certification follows the Curaçao-headquartered company’s announcement that it is making its entire game portfolio available to crypto operators and players via its innovative in-game currency conversion advance. Thanks to the new feature, players with balance in crypto who would normally not be able to enjoy games that don’t inherently support cryptocurrencies, will now be able to do so.
Prior to this, players registering at an online casino using crypto as their primary currency would be limited to games with cryptocurrencies as their only accepted in-game denominations. If cryptocurrencies, such as mETH or mBTC, had not been enabled by the game provider as supported currencies, players would be burdened with creating a fiat balance before being able to open the game.
Players will now be able to place bets with all game providers and available games that the casino offers. According to Softswiss, if previously the roster of crypto-friendly game providers numbered 40-plus game studios, now players can experience game titles from the more than 170 game providers accessible via the Softswiss Casino Platform and Game Aggregator.
Once released, every bet made in crypto is to be registered as a USD bet, with more fiat currency pairings to be added at a later date.
Commenting on the new crypto-centric feature, Andrey Starovoitov, Chief Operating Officer for SOFTSWISS, said he is “pleased” to share that they are “moving forward” in making more games available to their operators’ players.
“A currency exchange feature has long been associated with crypto dice brands, which have amassed a big audience for classic casino content. With the latest innovation in the form of the currency exchange feature, we are opening up our entire game portfolio for crypto players and operators. We are also simplifying the entire player journey and gameplay experience.
The COO said Softswiss “has always been associated as a crypto-fist brand,” and they are “happy to reaffirm that position yet again.”
