The experience accumulated all this time in this extremely dynamic market, the observation of technological trends at the global level and the continuous need to innovate, to differentiate yourself in the context of fierce competition, led to the construction of this platform that takes the gaming experience and especially those bets in a new digital dimension, the versatility of the online gambling environment being now also available in the retail environment. Net4Media was born from a need we identified during the period of coordination of Stanleybet’s activity, namely much better operational flexibility through real-time delivery and management of digital content on screens in betting locations. The expertise acquired in operating Stanleybet helped us to develop new products that are now appreciated not only in Romania, but also worldwide.”, declares Liviu Popovici.
In the 5 years since its foundation, the company not only concluded partnerships with local market-leading operators, such as Superbet, FEG, Stanleybet, Gameworld, Winner, reaching over 40% of the traditional games market in Romania, but also expanded the client portfolio and with names such as Kiron, Vermantia, SKS Italy, Stanleybet Italy, PG, DRGT, GoldenRace.
