Oryx Gaming rolls out BetCity.nl in Dutch online gaming market

Oryx Gaming has broadened its regulated market reach with the launch of the BetCity.nl online sportsbook.

The relationship will see Bragg Gaming Group (NASDAQ: BRAG) supply BetEnt, the online arm of Dutch land-based operator Casino City, with a comprehensive turnkwy solution, which will comprise the company’s Player Account Management (PAM) iGaming platform and extensive content library.

Melvin Bostelaar, BetCity’s Chief Executive Officer, expressed high admiration for the company’s new partner. “In ORYX, we discovered a company with high standards and an established track record of compliance, player safety, and commercial support. ORYX was one of the first platforms in the Netherlands to be fully accredited and met all of our technical standards.

“The ORYX organization possesses the necessary experience, principles, and strengths to assist us in launching our new enterprise. We were able to provide a comprehensive and competitive offering through this relationship, and we look forward to contributing positively to the Dutch online gaming market together.”
