Launched by EveryMatrix in 2019, Spearhead Studios will enter the Dutch market with its remote gaming server (RGS) platform, as well as distributing games from several other developers in the country, including Armadillo Studios, Funfair Games, JVL and Lady Luck Games.
Alongside the Netherlands, Spearhead is certified in Denmark, Sweden, the three Baltic states, Belarus, Romania, Croatia, Malta, Spain and the UK.
“Spearhead Studios and our partners are always quick to enter new and profitable markets,” Mathias Larsson, Spearhead Studios’ managing director, said. “We are currently present in 14, and we are always looking for the next opportunity to expand our reach.
The Dutch market shows significant interest for our games, and we are ready to capitalise on that by getting certified in the region.”
The news comes after the Netherlands opened its regulated online gambling market in October, after the launch was pushed back multiple times due to a number of factors, including disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Due to strict restrictions issued by the Dutch regulator de Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) the market originally opened with just 10 licensed operators. Unlicensed operators, meanwhile, were told to block all Dutch customers.
