Zitro games approved to launch in city of Buenos Aires

| By Laura Gumbrell
Zitro Digital has had its games catalog approved by Loteria de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires (LOTBA) for the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Following approval of LOTBA, the gaming regulatory body of the Argentine city, Codere brand Bplay will incorporate Zitro’s portfolio of digital games at authorised casino sites.

This news comes after a number of operators were approved to launch in the jurisdiction last December. This includes the Bplay brand.

Zitro’s video bingo games library and the Pick & Win progressive game are available to players from their mobile phones, tablets and computers for the first time in the city.

Salo Leder, regional director for Codere Online said, “We are continuously working to bring the best entertainment offer to customers in Argentina, and for this we have a partner that provides us with a vast catalog of online video bingo games and Zitro video slots, which has proven to be a hit in land-based casinos.”

“We are convinced that gamers will enjoy the same success in the online channel and that it will support our omnichannel growth strategy.”

Alejandra Burato, Zitro’s regional director for Latin America, added: “It is an exceptional achievement to see Zitro Digital grow steadily and open the way to new online casino markets not only in Argentina but in all continents.”

“Our goal is to create a product that is as successful and profitable for operators as our live games. It takes commitment and hard work to achieve this, and as a team we are proud to see it become a reality. Having our games approved by LOBTA is one more step towards the expansion of Zitro Digital with the operators of the city, and we are sure that many other games will follow, which have made Zitro a leading provider worldwide over the years.”

Licensing criteria for the city of Buenos Aires were set out in February 2020, as part of Argentina’s system of regulating online gambling on a province-by-province basis.
