SBTech will operate in Italy

Italy opened the access to the best-in-class sports betting and iGaming platform.

Italy.- Italian gaming authorities approved today the permission to operate sports betting websites under the SBTech brand. The famous global provider of online Sports Betting solutions, management services and iGaming platforms will operate alongside with Italian company, NetBet.

SBTech has been providing NetBet with software solutions in several regulated markets, such as the UK, Malta, Romania and Greece. “This achievement opens up a new chapter in our ongoing relationship with SBTech. The company’s skill and professionalism in meeting literally any challenge is the reason we are proud to be powered by their platform,” commented Alain Boccara, chief executive officer of NetBet Italy.

The Agency for Customs and Monopolies granted SBTech the Communication Protocol 3.3, controlled by the General Society for Information Technology (SOGEI), the state-owned organisation which administers online financial services. This protocol enables full ownership of a Sportsbook offering by the operator, as well as a host of advanced technical features.

Richard Carter, chief executive officer of SBTech concluded: “Passing this notoriously difficult test is a vital step towards our goal of offering our award-winning Sportsbook in regulated online gaming markets globally. Our strategic relationship with NetBet continues to go from strength to strength, and will be further strengthened by this entry into the Italian market.”
