Habanero’s Games Come To Paraguay
Games developer Habanero comes to the Paraguayan gambling market for the first time, thanks to its new partnership with local platform Slots del Sol. This new collaboration means that Paraguayan gamblers will be able to access more than 170 unique games developed by Habanero, which includes both slots and table games in its portfolio. Habanero continues to keep a brisk pace with international partnerships, recently securing a Malta gambling license.
Habanero and Slots del Sol
Games developer Habanero’s very latest partnership is with Slots del Sol, also known as the leading online gambling provider in Paraguay. This partnership marks the very first time Habanero has entered the Paraguayan market, an announcement which was revealed by the companies in mid-March, 2021.
What Is Slots del Sol?
Slots del Sol is Paraguay’s leading online gambling provider. In addition to its robust online gambling content, the website is linked to a retail location in Asunción, Paraguay. Slots del Sol’s physical location includes multiple physical slot machines, as well as an extensive menu for patrons offering vittles like pizza, wraps, salads, and more.
Slots del Sol Online
While Slots del Sol boasts a land-based gambling presence in Paraguay, the company may be better known for its online gambling website, which is the most popular in the entire country. Using Slots del Sol’s online casino, players can choose to partake in traditional video slots, table games, bingo, live casino, and more.
Within each of these categories, there’s a tremendous amount of choice for Slots del Sol players. The table games selection alone includes multiple baccarat iterations, including Baccarat Zero Commission, as well as two different options of blackjack (American and 3 Hand blackjack).
Partnerships With Gambling Leaders
Slots del Sol’s online casino boasts content from some of the best-known developers in the Latin American gambling industry, and Habanero fits comfortably in these ranks. As is evident on the Slots del Sol website, featured developers include Ainsworth, Zitro, Skywind Group, eGT, and Ezugi.
What Is Habanero?
Habanero is a games and software solutions developer predominantly active in Western countries and Asia, though it is consistently growing its presence in Latin America — as evidenced by this latest partnership with Slots del Sol. In addition to its celebrated games, Habanero offers back office and API integration software solutions.
Like Slots del Sol, Habanero is an established figure in the gambling industry. Habanero, in fact, boasts even more collaborations and partnerships than Slots del Sol, including internationally heralded games providers like Codere, ORYX Gaming, Slotegrator, SoftGamings, iSoftBet, and Every Matrix — and the list keeps growing.
The Latest From Habanero
In the first three months of 2021 alone, Habanero has successfully nabbed two additional operational licenses — one in Romania, one in Malta — and has partnered with international gambling platforms. In early January, the company announced back-to-back deals with Bulgarian platform EGT Digital, followed shortly after by Italian platform BLOX.
The Games Coming To Slots del Sol
Habanero boasts a catalogue of more than 170 games, the vast majority of which (close to 120) are virtual slots. Users of Slots del Sol can expect to have access to exciting, colorful, and high-tech video slots options like The Dead Escape, Jellyfish Flow, Taberna de Los Muertos, Techno Tumble, Colossal Gems, Magic Oak, and Presto!.
Habenero’s Newest Release: Orbs of Atlantis
The very latest game to come from Habanero is Orbs of Atlantis, a slot which pulls inspiration from the legend of the underwater city of Atlantis. The game features more than 40 unique symbols and the opportunity for a player to win up to 9,300x their original bet, with multipliers of up to 15x.
Increasing Interest In Paraguay
After back-to-back announcements that international games developers Greentube and Play’n GO would be partnering with Paraguayan casino Il Palazzo in the summer of 2020, radio silence ensued regarding international gambling companies looking to grow a presence in the Latin American country. Not anymore.
bplay: A New Paraguayan Power Player
In early March, Zitro Digital announced that it would be partnering with bplay, an online casino active in Paraguay. Zitro Digital has been consistently growing its presence across Latin America, and following that announcement, the companies have released a stream of press releases demonstrating a cascade of new deals, largely with companies in Argentina.
Is Paraguay Coming Back From 2019 Struggles?
In December 2019, Paraguay’s Minister of Finance, José Ortiz, shocked the gaming industry by revealing that the country’s gambling industry netted just $4 million annually through iGaming. At the time, Ortiz cited the prevalence of illegal online gambling sites choking off revenue from state-sanctioned iGaming sites.
The newfound interest in growing business in Paraguay on behalf of the international gambling industry could signal that the country is seeking to grow its legal gambling economy, particularly as political unrest dominates the Latin American nation following what many perceive to be a mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Most recently, a bid to impeach Paraguay’s President, Mario Abdo, failed when brought to Paraguay’s central house of government, but upheaval in capital city Asunción remains. As COVID-19 cases continue to climb in Paraguay, it’s quite likely that a robust online gambling industry could help offset inevitable financial strain.
