NetEnt has entered an agreement to license gaming content to German gaming machine producer Gauselmann for use in the Italian retail market.
NetEnt has signed a licensing agreement with Gauselmann’s subsidiary Merkur Gaming Italia regarding distribution of gaming content to the Italian Comma 6a retail market. The Italian Comma 6a market is the single largest gaming machine market in Europe with over 350,000 regulated machines currently installed.

Initially, the agreement covers two famous NetEnt games, Starburst and Eggomatic, and the games are expected to be launched by the first quarter of 2017.
”I’m very excited about working together with Gauselmann.
