Microgame powers Inspired's multi-viewer virtual sports solution in Italy
25 August 2015
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Inspired, the leading provider of Virtual Sports, Mobile Games and SBG Video Lottery, today announces that Microgame has launched its Multi-Viewer solution, which will enable it to run concurrent virtual sports channels from a single PC in its locations in Italy.
The Microgame Group is a major Italian platform and content provider to over 30 operators in Italy. Microgame launched Inspired’s Virtuals across its retail division, Pianeta Scommesse, in June 2014. Following the success of Inspired’s Virtuals in retail, Microgame also launched a number of Inspired’s Virtuals online across 80 websites earlier this year.
Inspired’s Multi-Viewer system enables concurrent virtuals channels to be shown through one PC, instead of one PC per channel. Microgame is set to benefit from incremental virtuals revenues, as well as reduced hardware and maintenance costs. Microgame plans to dedicate one channel to Rush Football, the most popular virtual sport in Italy, and offer a range of other virtuals on the other channels.
Vitaliano Casalone, Presidente of Inspired Italia, comments: “We are thrilled to announce the first deployment of our Multi-Viewer technology in Italy. It was a seamless certification and rollout – now installed, we are confident it will drive significant operational efficiencies and revenues for Microgame. It also provides the perfect foundation for the upcoming regulatory change that will increase the event limit to 2,000 events per day.”
Inspired currently supplies circa 95% of the land-based and online virtual sports market in Italy. In the last year, Inspired’s Virtuals products have supported the development of a €1 billion p.a. market in Italy.
