Online casino games provider High 5 Games has received the necessary regulatory approvals to roll out its online slots range in the regulated iGaming markets of Italy and Spain. The move will further expand the company’s rapidly growing European presence.
In order to be able to enter the Spanish and Italian iGaming markets, High 5 Games needed to obtain approvals from the two countries’ gambling regulators, with those being Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ) and Agenzia delle dogane e dei Monopoli (ADM), respectively.
After securing the required regulatory green light, High 5 Games is now able to provide Spain- and Italy-licensed online gambling operators with access to its entire library of online slots. The company will thus soon roll out top-performing games such as Goldstruck, Triple Double Da Vinci Diamonds, and Way Out Wilds as well as newer releases across the Spanish and Italian regulated online gambling markets, with both of those being highly lucrative.
The authorization of High 5 Games to provide its titles in Spain and Italy is part of the company’s strategy to expand across European markets and comes shortly after it announced a content distribution deal with iGaming platform provider Iforium. Under the terms of its deal with Iforium, High 5 Games will integrate its entire slots collection that includes more than 150 titles with its new partner’s Gameflex content aggregator.
Spanish, Italian Launch Scheduled for February
In a press release from earlier today, High 5 Games said that an initial batch of its titles is expected to go live in Spain and Italy with operators licensed in the markets in February. More titles will be rolled out in the following months, it also became known.
High 5 Games’ expansion across Spain and Italy builds on the games provider’s recent European expansion across Scandinavian regulated markets. High 5 Games last year successfully launched its titles in Denmark and the recently reorganized Swedish online gambling market.
Aside from Spain and Italy and Denmark and Sweden, High 5 Games is also licensed or certified by the gambling regulators of the United Kingdom, Gibraltar, and Malta, where it opened an office not long ago to support its growth and expansion. High 5 Games titles are also available across the pond in the regulated iGaming market of New Jersey.
After Spain and Italy, High 5 Games is now also looking to expand in Portugal and Romania. That next stage in the slot provider’s expansion effort is expected to happen in the coming months.
Of their growth plans, High 5 Games Anthony Singe said that being granted approval for their games to go live in two of Europe’s largest regulated markets “is an important step in our efforts to expand our presence across the globe.”
Mr. Singer went on that with their portfolio now certified and more titles to come, “it’s an exciting period for us and we’re looking forward to gaining new customers in both Italy and Spain.”
