AAMS opens Italian slots; vsJack launches on Cubeia’s Firebase platform; Betting Promotion moves to First North exchange

eu flagItalian regulator AAMS have issued the first raft of online slots licences with NetEnt one of those to become licensed. A release from the AAMS revealed that all of those that applied for a licence received one and it came on the same day the regulator was merged with the country’s Customs Authority in order to cut costs. NetEnt have launched “several” slots games with their Italian partners and there will be “frequent releases” of additional slots games throughout 2013. Alongside them will be 32Red, who announced their Italian slots plans last week, Probability and a number of others.

P2P online blackjack game vsJack has gone live on Cubeia’s Firebase platform and becomes the third unique offering to partner with the Swedish-based development firm. vsJack puts the game in the hands of the players with each person taking it in turns to be dealer and the player. Christian Andersson, CEO of Vooxn AB, the development company behind vsJack commented: “The decision to use Cubeia Firebase for our multiplayer gambling platform vsJack was a no-brainer. It has saved us a lot of development time and allowed us to concentrate more on our unique offering and ultimately bring more value to the players. Firebase has enabled our game and I have no doubt it will also enable the expansion of our customers as they scale up from here.” The other two skill gaming networks powered by the firm are WMS Dicearena and Mahjong Logic.

Swedish firm Betting Promotion has started trading shares on the First North specialist exchange at NASDAQ OMX Stockholm. The shares move at the behest of the company after they made a request last month to join the exchange and they’re listed under the Consumer Services sector. Betting Promotion’s turnover mostly comes from betting exchanges and they currently offer around 10,000 sports betting events each month across over 25 different sports. Johan Moazed, CEO of Betting Promotion, hopes the move will give them “increased and more focused exposure towards both private and institutional investors to support our continued expansion”.
