MALTA – Prima Networks, powered by Microgaming, has signed a letter of intent to be the primary provider of casino and exclusive supplier of poker to the newly merged Dutch gambling organisation, Nederlandse Staatsloterij / De Lotto, once regulations for online gaming permit them to go live.

Loraine Schoevers, Director of Prima Networks, comments: “Following a competitive and in-depth tender process, we were delighted to be chosen by Nederlandse Staatsloterij / De Lotto as their preferred casino and poker supplier. 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.”
