U.K.-based Inspired Gaming Group Ltd, a supplier of virtual sports and server-based video lottery games, announced this week it is entering the Philippine market with its virtual games.
Inspired said it has signed a multi-year contract with DFNN Inc to provide various virtual games to Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp (Pagcor) across its authorised and regulated land-based retail betting locations in the Philippines.
DFNN through its subsidiaries is a licensed partner of state-run casino operator-cum-regulator Pagcor.
Inspired said it would be the “first to launch its virtual games and platform in the Philippines”. “Virtuals will initially be going live in selected venues with a view to commencing a full roll-out across the Philippines,” the company said in a statement.
The firm already has a presence in the virtual sports game market in mainland China’s state lottery system. The company has been looking to expand its operations into other Asian regions.
“We are delighted to announce our first launch into the Philippines,” Harmen Brenninkmeijer, Inspired’s senior vice president for Asia and strategic markets, said in the statement.
“The Asia Pacific region is a huge growth market for Inspired. Our virtual gaming platform is well established and proven across retail, online and mobile channels in Europe, China and many other markets – particularly with major bookmakers and lotteries – making it incredibly attractive to Asian markets and to many different types of players,” he added.
