Le Grand Casino signs with Gaming Innovation Group
On 17th July 2020, Le Grand Casino signed a heads of terms agreement with Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) for the provision of GiG’s platform, front end development and managed media services to launch our digital operation in the regulated North Macedonian market.
Having traditionally been a closed market to online operators, the North Macedonian government is now allowing land based operators to apply for online licenses that must directly reflect the offline offering. Through our casinos, Le Grand will be one of the biggest operators in North Macedonia to offer table games to online players along with a complete slots portofolio.
We have carefully selected GiG's casino platform offering in order to transform the land based to online gambling.
The final agreement is expected to be signed this month, and the casino offering is expected to go live by Q1 of 2020.
"Gaming Innovation Group is known in the iGaming industry as a reliable and trustful company with a history of success working with land based operators like ourselves. We are pleased to have them supporting our digital transformation and online player acquisition strategy as we expand into the newly regulating online market. We believe, that by joining our efforts we can translate the feel and the look of our Le Grand Casino's into an online offering that both caters for our current players as well as attracts new ones. We are looking forward to a long lasting and mutually beneficial partnership." - said the Chief Executive Officer of Le Grand Casino.
Richard Brown, the Chief Executive Officer of GiG says: "North Macedonia, has a long history in the landbased casino segment, and is a major tourist destination in the region. Partnering with a leading brand, hospitality and entertainment group in the region is an exciting opportunity for GiG and we look forward to helping replicate Le Grand Casinos retail success online as the market regulates."
