Online betting firm Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has announced that they've gone live in the Argentinian city/state of Buenos Aires thanks to an integration with operator Grupo Slots.
The integration is through Grupo's Jugadon.bet.ar domain, and it allows punters in the state to participate in online casino games and sportsbetting services. Grupo Slots is primarily known as being one of the largest betting operators in Argentina, as they operate land casinos, hotels, and restaurants throughout the country. There are currently seven gaming licenses in Buenos Aires, and GiG and Grupo got their approval in March.
This is the first Argentina launch for GiG, which is active in markets like the UK, Malta, Sweden, and others.
Regarding the launch GiG CEO Richard Brown said, "I am excited to have gone live in the city of Buenos Aires with a prominent brand like Grupo Slots. Buenos Aires is a dynamic market, set to be one of the largest within Argentina with significant growth potential in the interactive space driven by regulation and growth of a digital online gaming penetration. I am extremely proud to be one of the early movers entering this market and look forward to growing our presence within the region."
Grupo Slots General Manager Juan Ignacio Torres added: "Today we had set a new milestone in the history of Grupo Slots because the beginning of Jugadon in the City of Buenos Aires is a great leap forward that enhances the wide experience of the company in the gambling industry. We built a great team with GIG, and have developed a solid and safe platform that matches regulators specifications as well as Buenos Aires Citys' market requirements. We want to thank our team for their outstanding work over the last months that allowed us to successfully reach this goal."
