New Online Gambling Partnership in Tanzania

Poker has received the honour of being the most accessed game on the internet. There are thousands of men and women out there playing poker at this very minute and the popularity of this skill based game keeps growing. The recent reinstatement of legal online poker in the USA has other jurisdictions either contemplating the move towards a regulated environment or already legislating it.

The main thrust behind this change of heart for some of those jurisdictions including those in the European Union is financial. Other casino games are also getting a massive boost on the internet.

Portugal for example has decided to follow in the footsteps of France, Italy and other locals to offer legal online gambling in order to bolster its flagging economy. A study has been commissioned by the Portuguese government that for the next three months will study the implications of regulations on local gambling entities as well as the platform required by the European Commission. The process as not been identified as yet but the commission hopes to secure more current data regarding the internet wagering industry and the opportunities presenting themselves.

Another online gambling jurisdiction breaking new ground in the continent of Africa is in Tanzania, where the gambling operator Dunia has been granted approval by the government to operate.

Online poker and other casino style games will be offered and powered by Microgaming’s Quickfire platform by Africa’s first legal internet casino Dunia. Director of the operation Costa Giannakopoulos said the choice to use Microgaming software was an easy one because it is simply the best there is. Adding to its already international client base. With Dunia it now provides 24 regulated jurisdictions with Quickfire.

Ashley Sandyford-Sykes, director for the Quickfire platform was very happy about this new partnership, and proud of the respected position in providing online gaming solutions on a global level.
