Online game supplier ESA Gaming is set to launch in Greece after it secured a new supplier licence from the Hellenic Gaming Commission (EEEP).

The licence will enable ESA to distribute its range of mobile gaming products to licensed operators in Greece, including its portfolio of EasySwipe-branded HTML5 mobile-first titles.

ESA also holds certifications in Portugal, Italy and Colombia, as well as a supplier licence issued by the Malta Gaming Authority.

“Receiving our Greek licence is another exciting moment for us in our step towards our global expansion,” ESA chief executive Zorica Smallwood said. “The Greek market has huge potential and we’re eager to see how our titles are received by both operators and players.

“It is another important milestone for us this year as we’ve gone from strength to strength.” 

ESA is the latest supplier to secure a new licence in Greece, following BGaming earlier this month.

YggdrasilSoftSwissiSoftBet and Oryx are among the country’s other recent licensees.

The process to obtain a licence in Greece opened in October 2020, one year after Greece’s parliament passed reforms to its gambling law in October 2019. Two types of supplier licences were made available – one to offer online betting technology and another to offer online games of chance.

The new regulatory system requires operators and suppliers to abide by strict operating conditions. Online slots – which an earlier draft of the regulations had sought to ban – are capped at €2 per spin, with a three-second spin minimum and a maximum win of €70,000 per round.
