Leap Gaming secures Romanian licence

| By contenteditor
Leap Gaming, the Malta-based virtual sports, slots and table games provider, has been awarded a licence in Romania.

The Class II licence from the Romanian National Gambling Office (ONJN) comes less than a week after Leap secured a licence from the Spelinspektionen regulator in Sweden.

Under the Romanian licence, Leap will be allowed to provide virtual sports and casino software solutions to B2C and B2B operators in the country.

Leap described the latest licence as “another step on Leap’s expansion path into regulated markets, for scalable distribution of its state-of-the-art virtual sports, slots and table games”.

The provider has been broadening its horizons in recent months by gaining a foothold in various European markets.

In February last year, Leap entered Italy through a partnership with GoldBet, and in November, the provider sealed a provisional licence in Greece.

Leap’s entrance into Romania comes just days after the ONJN added 26 domains to its blacklist of unlicensed gambling websites. The ONJN launched its blacklist back in 2015, prior to the country opening its regulated online gaming market in 2016. It has regularly updated the list since, including in August 2020, when 20 websites were blacklisted.
