We are happy to announce that today(13.01.2017) we celebrating two years of activity and we are doing this by implementing a new layout which will help increase the visibility of the large amount of content published on our website.
The new layout focuses more on having a clear view of the recent news, event related news, trending topics and a much clearer reading of the EEG iGaming Directory feeds.
“EEGaming has become a leading portal of igaming news in Central and Eastern Europe, serving news and interviews at the highest quality and dedication. Our growth is the direct result of the b2b partners which we work with and we are happy to be part of their success and making things happen in the demographic. I remember saying that we want to build a bridge between the East and West of the igaming industry. Now I can see that this bridge has been built and we have even managed to inspire other media companies to start stepping up and help the companies located in the region to grow their online presence. EEGaming.org will continue to grow and more features will be added to help increase the visibility of news that are subject to the igaming industry. Special thanks goes to our partners, media partners and of course our honored readers.”, stated Zoltan “Hawkie” Tundik, Founder and Head of Business.
While in 2 years, the portal has managed to gain +12,000 subscribers and reach millions of readers across the world, the plan is to grow further and reach new audiences. This is one of the reasons, we are going to help Eastern and Central European gaming software and web design startups grow by launching a platform on which they can post their projects share ideas, connect with investors and of course get the latest information about events in Europe that can help them get the funds they need to put their ideas into action.
Beside launching the platform for startups(launch date set for 01.03.2017), EEGaming will also invest 10% of its generated revenues in 2017 by funding interesting projects within the region.
Bitcoin to be Declared Legal in Russia
Looks like things are changing fast in Russia, where only a year ago their Finance Ministry was threatening jail time to anyone using digital currencies. But in a major U-turn, it’s now edging closer to their acceptance as a legitimate financial instrument to open a new line of attack on money laundering.
Russian authorities have recognized the increasing popularity of Bitcoin and also its potential to solve a wide range of issues plaguing their current financial system. The country which has been against the use of cryptocurrency for transactions within the country is now planning to assign a regulated status to the digital currency to pave the way for a more structured crypto-ecosystem in the country.
Russia’s move to recognize the legitimacy of the cryptocurrency as a currency closely follows the very recent developments in Japan where cryptocurrencies are now legal mode of payments. Assigning a regulation to Bitcoin as a currency not only makes it much easier for the community members to use it for a wide range of applications, including payments for their daily needs, it also brings in more liability, opening doors for newer regulations governing the use of Bitcoin in the country.
Russian authorities hope to recognize bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies next year in 2018 as they try to enforce rules against illegal transfers, said Deputy Finance Minister Alexey Moiseev in an interview. Russia’s central bank is developing a common position together with the government on digital currencies, according to its press service.
“The state needs to know who at every moment of time stands on both sides of the financial chain,” Moiseev said. “If there’s a transaction, the people who facilitate it should understand from whom they bought and to whom they were selling, just like with bank operations.”
The government’s perception to monitor all transactions and parties to these transactions seems a bit overreaching and with various blockchain analysis tools available, it has become quite easy to do so. The regulatory bodies and the financial governance are expected to take this decision regarding Bitcoin’s legal status in the next few months. Once the decision is finalized, all the concerned departments and ministries will start drafting new regulations and compliance requirements for Bitcoin platforms and the cryptocurrency community.

iSoftBet targets further successes after “transformational” 2016
Software developer will showcase ambitious plans for 2017 at next month’s ICE Totally Gaming
iSoftBet, the leading online and mobile games software provider, has unveiled ambitious plans for 2017 after a “transformational” 12-month period.
The London-based developer recorded a number of milestones during 2016, from entering new regulated markets in Spain and Portugal to becoming one of the first software providers to be certified in the new Romanian market. It also now provides content from more than 30 software providers through its market-leading Game Aggregation Platform (GAP).
2016 also saw the company signing notable new deals with some of the world’s leading operators, and released outstanding titles such as Paranormal Activity and Platoon Wild.
In the coming year, the company will focus on enhancing its content offering through the release of new in-house and branded games and further expanding its growing Game Aggregation Platform with increasing diversity. iSoftBet will also seek new partnerships with operators, and pursue licences in more countries.
iSoftBet will be showcasing its GAP and top-of-the-range portfolio of HTML5 slots and casino games at ICE Totally Gaming 2017 at London’s ExCeL from February 7-9 (N5-240).
Lauren Bradley, iSoftBet’s Sales Manager, said: “iSoftBet enters 2017 emboldened with confidence and enthusiasm after a transformational year. We want to attract new partners, enter new regulated markets and offer an even better service to those we are already fortunate to be partnered with. We are eager to engage with our friends and colleagues from across the industry at ICE 2017. We want to discuss our exciting ideas with operators and developers who share our vision.”
iSoftBet plans to build upon its 2016 successes with progress across its operations:
Game Aggregation Platform (GAP):
In the coming year iSoftBet will seek to further enhance its comprehensive GAP service, which offers operators immediate access to around 1,000 market-leading games from more than 30 studios. Ainsworth Gaming Technology, Amatic, MrSlotty, Pariplay and Pragmatic Play were just some of the major developers whose content was integrated into GAP during 2016.
The company will continue to create its own ground-breaking and innovative slots for mobile and desktop users. iSoftBet released a series of hits in 2016, with Paranormal Activity acknowledged as one of the games of the year. Platoon Wild, licensed by MGM Interactive, and Cloud Tales, Skulls of Legend and Slammin’ 7s were also welcomed by players and operators alike.
The company will target further partnerships with operators after a series of deals in the last 12 months after industry’s top operators expanded their content portfolio by incorporating iSoftBet’s diversified portfolio of games.
iSoftBet will pursue new licences in regulated markets. The company was approved by the authorities in Hungary and Romania in 2016 and is also licensed in the UK and Alderney, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Denmark.
iSoftBet will be exhibiting at stand N5-240 at ICE 2017 from February 7
