Industry Virtual Sports games developers VSoftCo and Kiron Interactive have joined forces to ‘expand virtuals reach in Italy’, launching a dedicated football league satellite channel with Italian retail betting market leader Sisal Matchpoint.
The strategic partnership will see the launch of an exclusive virtuals channel launched across Sisal Matchpoint’s retail estate of nearly 4,000 betting shops/points.
Bringing new engagement to Italian retail betting punters, the channel will promote an HD league format with multiple matches running at the same time, complete with high-quality graphics and immersive audio commentary
