GVC Holdings, a London-listed sports betting and gaming group, has signed an agreement with Ainsworth Game Technology (AGT), an Australia-based slot games supplier, for launching the games in New Jersey’s regulated iGaming market.

As per the multi-year agreement,  GVC will initially launch 20 AGT slot games on its platform. Additional games will then be introduced in the coming months.

GVC will have exclusive access to the AGT titles on its network, which also includes the GVC-owned nj.partypoker and nj.PartyCasino brands, for six months.

“This is fantastic news for both our B2B partners and the wider casino playing public of New Jersey,” said GVC president of New Jersey operations Kevin Allan. “The online market has been stagnant for too long, with many casinos offering a similar line-up of content.”

“Ainsworth are helping us to really shake things up, bringing an entirely new collection of standout titles which are sure to be a major attraction and point of difference for our network.”

AGT is one of the largest suppliers to the state’s bricks-and-mortar casinos with a market share of close to 10 per cent through titles including Mustang Money, Electric Nights King Strike and Wild Fire Riches, all of which will be available exclusively on GVC’s network later this year.

“We are excited to be partnering with the GVC Group for New Jersey and look forward to providing Ainsworth’s land based content online,” said Jason Lim, general manager for Ainsworth Online.

Steve Nathan, vice president of online gaming at MGM Resorts, added: “We are extremely pleased to have this exclusive deal in place with Ainsworth for the New Jersey market. We are looking forward to giving our players access to some of the best and most recognised games in the industry.”

The agreement comes on the back of the recent roll-out of more than 30 titles created by GVC’s in-house development studio.

“We are absolutely delighted to be partnering with Ainsworth and facilitating their entrance into the New Jersey market,” said GVC head of content and commercial management Andy Whitworth. “Of all the many, many deals we have completed over the past 18 months, this is the one I’m most excited about. It will be a real game-changer in the highly static NJ market, which is hindered by a limited range of content.”

“Strategically, securing Ainsworth’s market leading omni-content is huge for GVC, MGM and Borgata. Being able to offer their games on our network six-months ahead of the market is a massive advantage for us and – combined with the introduction of our exclusive in-house titles – creates an offer that cannot be found at any other operator in the state.”

Shares in GVC Holdings plc (LSE: GVC) were trading up marginally by 0.29 per cent at 1041.01 pence per share in London Tuesday morning, having hit a 52-week high of 1045.00p in trading on Monday.

Breaking News: Dutch Senate votes to legalize online gambling

The Netherlands Senate voted today in favor of the country’s long-awaited online gaming legislation, which was approved by the House of Representatives back in 2014.

The new regulatory regime will allow operators to secure online sports betting and casino gaming licenses to serve Dutch consumers, subject to secondary legislation that is yet to be submitted for European Commission approval.

Today, the Dutch Senate voted in favor of legislation to legalize internet-based gambling, clearing the way for foreign and Dutch firms to apply for licenses.

On Monday, the Financieele Dagblad said some 300 companies have expressed interest in running a gambling website in the Netherlands and about 50 are expected to make a formal application for a license when they are up for grabs next year. Tuesday’s vote comes two years after the lower house voted in favor of allowing third parties to legally offer online gambling.

Holland Casino is the Netherlands’ only state-regulated gambling establishment but foreign firms widely flout the ban and continue to target Dutch punters.

The two Christian parties in the ruling coalition voted against the legislation. They claim allowing more companies to offer online betting will lead to more problems with addiction.

Bangladesh bans online gambling websitesReading Time: 1 minute

 

Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has asked all the internet gateway providers and Telecom department to run an internet safety solution programme to block online gambling websites. BTRC is believed to have received an instruction to effect the same from the country’s government.

The telecom regulator has sent the order to block the websites so that these websites will not be accessible in Bangladesh again.

“It might take few more hours to block all the sites completely as blocking any site is so technical,” said Md Emdadul Hoque, general secretary of Internet Service Provider Association of Bangladesh (ISPAB).

A top official of the BTRC said they have often found complaints from different sides about online gambling and that needs to block for the sake of safe internet.
