Habanero bolsters Italian footprint with StarCasinò agreement

Supplier launches with market-leading operator

Premium slots and table games provider Habanero has partnered with prominent Italian operator StarCasinò, part of Betsson Group.

The deal sees all 56 of Habanero’s Italian-certified slot and table titles integrated with StarCasinò’s offering via iSoftBet’s advanced Game Aggregation Platform (GAP).

Under the agreement, popular hits such as Jump! and Egyptian Dreams are already live with the operator. With a dedicated launch strategy in place, titles set to follow will include Wild Trucks, Hot Hot Fruit and Habanero’s latest action-packed adventure, Loony Blox.

Testament to the company’s success in the Italian market, the deal sees Habanero continue its rapid European growth after signing a string of recent partnerships with leading operators in Italy and beyond, including Croatia, Lithuania, the UK and Portugal.

Ready to build on an outstanding 2019, the specialist provider aims to continue its rapid expansion across Europe and South America in 2020 by creating the industry’s most engaging and immersive content.

Commenting on the deal, Arcangelo Lonoce, European Head of Business Development at Habanero, said: “StarCasinò’s remarkable growth is one of Italy’s most impressive iGaming success stories, so we are thrilled to go live with the company as part of our ongoing European expansion drive.

“Building on a record-breaking 2019, Habanero’s innovative HTML5-optimised portfolio is sure to be a hit with StarCasinò’s players, and we can’t wait to introduce our entire catalogue over the coming months.”

Marco Strazzulla, Southern Europe & LatAm Casino Manager at Betsson Group, added: “Habanero’s engaging product suite is fast becoming a must-have for operators across the globe, so we are delighted to incorporate it with StarCasinò’s offering.

“Working with a premium supplier such as Habanero cements our reputation for providing players with a level of entertainment they won’t find elsewhere, and we’re delighted to have them aboard.”
