EUROBET ITALY TAKES EVOLUTION LIVE DEALER ACTION ON BOARD
Eurobet Italy, a subsidiary of the Gala Coral online and land gambling group, has launched Evolution Gaming's mobile version of its live dealer product.
The company is restricting the roll-out to its mobile channel, although it has the option to extend the product to its desktop offering at some future point.
The product includes roulette, blackjack and baccarat live dealer tables across Android and iOS devices, and will hopefully boost the Italian subsidiary's penetration of the market, says m.d. Paolo Bazzocchi, who stressed his strong focus on the growing popularity of the mobile channel.
Gionata La Torre, head of Evolution operations in Italy, commented:
With its widespread presence across Italy and its sharp focus on web services and mobile, Eurobet Italy is a true multi- channel operator. As Evolutions mission is to deliver a flawless live casino via multiple devices and channels in regulated markets, our two companies are very well matched.
Evolution also serves major companies like Betsson, Bwin.Party and Betclic in the Italian market.
NEW ONLINE POKER SITE LAUNCH
What appears to be a South African entrepreneur has been touting the forthcoming launch of a free-to-play online poker website this week, treading carefully around South African laws which hold that most forms of online gambling are currently illegal.
The new operation will be titled African Poker Online.com and the foundation site can be viewed at http://220.127.116.11:8087/
The promoter emphasises the free-to-play nature of the site, although prizes can be won, such as a free seat to an upcoming Kenyan poker tournament.
"For now you have a platform to practice your online game and meet new players," the promoter advises prospective visitors. "Leaderboards and other great social items are being launched once we get out of the Alpha testing phase."

Mohamed Omaizat, VP group corporate development at Skrill, said Friday: Partnering with Yandex.Money will provide Skrills expansive global merchant base with access to consumers in Russia. It will also enable us to grow our global payment network even further with another popular local payment option, ensuring we stay at the forefront of the digital payments market.
We want to give our users an opportunity to pay with Yandex.Money in any internet store anywhere in the world," said Maria Gracheva, business development director at Yandex.Money.
