Newgioco Group Initiates Plan to Enter U.S. Sports Bet Market

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / September 6, 2018 / Newgioco Group, Inc. (NWGI) a betting technology company providing regulated sports betting and leisure gaming products and services through licensed subsidiaries in Europe, announces that the Company has began coding to obtain the latest standard of GLI (Gaming Labs International, LLC) certification of our ELYS betting platform in preparation to launch our U.S. sports betting business.

On September 3, 2018 the company switched-on new codes developed over the past year by our Odissea technology team led by senior MVP engineer Michael Denny. The pivotal software coding was successfully certified on a first test run by the Italian regulator Agenzia delle Dogane e dei Monopoli (ADM) and SOGEI and represents a critical connection that efficiently allows ELYS to communicate directly with government regulators. As a result, the Company breaks free from the reliance on a key third-party provider and can now communicate completely independently with any gaming regulator's control software.

Proven in Italy, one of the most rigorous regulated gaming jurisdictions in the world, the Company's innovative ELYS shop-client architecture built on the latest Microsoft .NET platform, is one of the newest and most cost-effective betting software in the industry. Given the fragmented, regional nature of the Italian market, ELYS is perfectly designed to suit the U.S. market by providing a powerful and highly customisable betting solution for independent casino operators and licensed gaming operators throughout each independent state and their unique gaming laws.

"We are extremely pleased with the rapid turnaround of this important new coding that puts ELYS well ahead of several larger competitors and further advancing our betting technology for the future. We now have commenced coding for GLI certification which is a key step in deployment of our U.S. operations," stated Michele Ciavarella, Company CEO. "We are very focused on being an early mover in this huge market with the ability to leverage one of the most technologically advanced betting software and proven operational know how to support to our U.S. clients sports betting business success. Newgioco has undertaken a logical and practical U.S. licensing and certification plan and anticipates announcing further U.S. market developments in the near future."
