Bwin Launches Skill Games in Italy

9 January 2009
On Thursday, Bwin announced it was the first operator authorized by the State Monopolies Autonomous Administration to launch real-money skill games.

Since Jan. 5, eight skill games have been made available on Bwin’s Italian Web site. Some of the new games include solitare, blackjack, three-card poker “Yatzy” and “Eldorado.”

“Bwin continues to fortify its position in the Italian market as a genuine house of games,” said Norbert Teufelberger, the company’s co-chief executive, in a prepared statement.
