GIG expansion drive

Expansion in regulated markets

Here are some comments from key players at GIG on the group’s current expansion drive into regulated markets

Claudio Caruana, General Counsel for GIG says; 

“Having placed a strong focus on expansion in regulated markets, we’re understandably pleased with the confirmation of our licenses in two new US states. Regulation will continue to drive the industry in North America, as markets mature, allowing us to support and protect operators and their customers, establishing suitable, robust frameworks for sustainable growth.”

Marcel Elfersy, Chief Commercial Officer at GIG also weighed in, saying; 

“With our plans to open our new US hub later this year and having recently been shortlisted with EGR North America in the full-service platform provider of the year category, our new licensed status in these very attractive online markets creates further opportunity for us to add value for new and established partners in the region. We’re excited about the possibilities these new states provide, starting with the launch of Crab Sports in Maryland in May on our PAM and sportsbook.”
