    Important Italian market

    Capecod currently enjoys around 10% of the online gaming market share in Italy according to people familiar with the matter. The company has been porting and distributing slot games from land-based suppliers to mobile and online platforms since 2012 and was the first B2B company to migrate retail products to the online gambling sphere in Italy.

The change in name marks the official announcement of the deal's completion. Novomatic Italia is the holding company of more than 20 companies including the Admiral brand in Italy and controls about 50% of the VLT market in the country with over 26,000 VLT/AWP machines in operation. Novomatic employs over 24,000 people worldwide, had 2.3 billion Euro in revenue for 2016, has subsidiaries in 50 countries and owns or operates 1,700 gaming facilities globally.
