Agreement with HBG Latam expands Virtual Generation markets
NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / December 11, 2019 / Newgioco Group, Inc. (“Newgioco” or the “Company”) (OTCQB:NWGI), a global sports betting and gaming technology company providing fully integrated software solutions to online and land-based gaming and sports betting operators, is pleased to announce that through its wholly-owned subsidiary Virtual Generation Limited (“VG”), it has entered into an agreement with the HBG group (“HBG”) for distribution of our VG virtual games in Central America.
VG has built a solid reputation for producing unique, regionally focused virtual sports games including indigenous virtual games for tribal markets in the U.S. that are currently in development. VG has established distribution channels in Colombia and other countries of Central and South America and we believe is well placed to deliver entertaining, feature-rich virtual sports games once the products are certified for sale through HBG’s AquiJuego® brand based in Colombia which is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
“We are very pleased to have established a relationship with HBG to distribute our virtual sports portfolio in Central and South America through their regional subsidiaries HBG Latam SAS,” stated Michele (Mike) Ciavarella, Newgioco Chief Executive Officer. “We believe that the relationship with HBG will be an excellent addition to our current virtual sports retail distribution and expect that the deal may possibly result in a significant growth in our customer base across many borders in South America. Our VG products will be initially distributed through AquiJuego® in Colombia, and we look forward to working with their team on expanding our reach throughout the Americas.”
With over 15 years of experience, HBG is one of the largest Italian gaming operators, regulated by the Customs and Monopolies Agency. HBG currently operates approximately 18 bingo halls in the Italian market with over 6,000 seats, 945 New Slot (“AWP”) and Videolottery (VLT) machines installed and a telematic network connecting over 24,000 AWP machines, spread over 7,400 locations with over 360 partner operators through its subsidiary HBG Connex S.p.A. in Italy. In June 2018, HBG Latam S.A.S. received a five-year license to offer online sports betting and casino games via its AquiJuego® brand in Columbia.
