The supplier said it is "getting ready" for legalisation in the Netherlands

Microgaming-powered Prima Networks has strengthened its position in the Netherlands after agreeing a deal with the newly-merged Dutch gambling organisation, Nederlandse Staatsloterij/De Lotto.

The software services supplier has signed a letter of intent to serve as the primary provider of casino and exclusive supplier of poker to the organisation. The agreement will come into effect once the country finalises its regulations for online gaming.

Under its terms, Prima Networks will supply Microgaming’s casino games on desktop and mobile via the Quickfire platform, in addition to Microgaming poker software. The new Dutch Lottery will also gain access to third-party content from over 20 development partners through the Quickfire platform.

Loraine Schoevers, director of Prima Networks, said: “We are well versed in regulated markets and working with state lotteries, and winning this contract strengthens Prima Networks’ and Microgaming’s position in the European regulated market. 

“While we wait for the Dutch market to open, we’re busy getting the bespoke solution for the newly-merged organisation ready, for when we can launch.”

Prima Networks is already certified to offer poker, casino and bingo in Italy and has received ARJEL certification to offer poker in France.

TotallyGaming.com says: “While Dutch politicians continue to drag their feet, sensible operators from the Netherlands and across Europe are busy making plans for what could be one of the continent’s most exciting markets. With experience in Italy and France, Prima Networks is primed to hit the ground running in the Netherlands.”
