License to supply in Greek market extends ORYX’s regulated market reach
TORONTO, August 9, 2021 – Oryx Gaming, a Bragg Gaming Group (TSX:BRAG, OTC: BRGGF) (“Bragg” or the “Company”) announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary ORYX Gaming (“ORYX”) has been granted a license to supply its exclusive content via its proprietary remote games server to operators in Greece by the Hellenic Gaming Commission.
ORYX is now live and fully compliant in the jurisdiction, which has moved from an interim framework to become fully regulated, in line with a general trend among European countries in recent years.
The A1 license enables ORYX to supply its Greek licensed customers including OPAP, Stoiximan, Betsson and NetBet, with more online casino brands expected to go live in the market via the Company’s ORYX Hub distribution platform this year.
Chris Looney, Chief Commercial Officer at Bragg said “Greece has the potential to become an important market for the group and this license underpins our commitment to our customers in the jurisdiction and represents a new milestone for us in our plans for expansion in regulated markets in Europe, North America and globally.
“Our technology is flexible, and it gives us the agility to adapt quickly to new market regulations, and we look forward to launching in many more new markets over the coming quarters with our in-house developed content, our player engagement tools and exclusive third-party content.
“We have a superb new roadmap of exclusive games coming up, including an increasing proportion from our own in-house studios, and we can’t wait to bring them to Greek slots fans.”
ORYX is already licensed in Malta and Romania, and is otherwise certified or approved to offer its content in multiple jurisdictions including Sweden, Denmark, Spain, Portugal, Czech Republic, Croatia, Serbia, Switzerland, Gibraltar, Estonia, Latvia, Colombia and, once the market opens as anticipated in Q4 2021, the Netherlands. It is in the process of obtaining further licenses in the UK, Belgium and in the U.S. states of New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Michigan, and is in the process of obtaining certification to supply in Italy.
