    We've recently seen a lot of news about the Romanian online gambling market finally opening up and licenses being awarded. The most recent award has been given to Microgaming's Prima Networks, and it's a class 2 license to operate in Romania. A class 2 license has to do with software distribution and managing the gaming platform itself, which is different than the license to be an actual operator.

    The Quickfire Platform

    The key piece of software that matters the most right now for this transition into Romania is the Quickfire platform. It has a tremendous selection of online slots from Microgaming and a number of other third-party providers. However, it also includes a great selection of table games, video poker and other non-slot titles.

    What makes Quickfire so important is that it can be played in an instant play platform or via mobile, the fastest-growing part of the online gambling industry. It also "plays well with others" and makes it easy for a casino to use the Quickfire platform along with games from other providers that aren't included. Because the current state of the online casino industry is that the newest sites prefer offering titles from several different providers, this platform by Microgaming is what has been getting the most attention from them in the online casino market. Along these lines, there are a handful of operators licensed in Romania who are looking to use the software.

    The Romanian Market

    What's also important to note is that this license granted to the Prima networks can also be used to offer online poker solutions. The Microgaming Poker Network, now known as MPN for short, was previously known as Prima Poker in the past, and it was once considered one of the top three or four networks in the world. While online poker has died off a bit since then, it's still important to note the full implications of entering the Romanian market along these lines. This makes a dozen European markets that Microgaming's software is licensed in, and there will probably be more that come up in the next several months or the next few years as more countries look to regulate the industry.
