“We’re really pleased to have the ink dry on this deal with Palasino, seeing a wealth of opportunity in the partnership for both businesses to expand into,” said Marcel Elfersy, CCO of GiG. “We’re continuing to see growth in the online gaming space across the industry, with the brand equity of experienced retail brands gelled with specialized third-party technology such as ours, positioned well to establish a strong foothold in global markets.”
