Intralot Italia was the first subsidiary to launch the new suite under the new brand ‘Giochi di Intralot’. George Zenzefilis, General Director of Intralot Interactive, said of the launch: “Social gaming is a relatively new concept, yet it has gained significant popularity amongst younger demographics. Intralot can now provide a social gaming suite designed to give players the most social and fun gaming experience and offer them new ways to connect with other people. On the other hand, operators around the world can take full advantage of the potential of online and social, so as to increase the loyalty of their players offering them an integrated Universal Gaming Experience. We were really pleased with the interest our new LazyLand suite attracted during its launch at EiG 2012 in Barcelona, and after its successful implementation in Italy we are looking forward to introducing it to other local markets as well.”
