Omega Systems, the software provider founded in 2010, has joined the Portuguese Online Gambling Association (APAJO) as its new Effective Partner. APAJO, which represents operators holding a local national license, launched the partner membership last year, opening the door for service and technology providers to join and support the association’s efforts. Although not directly involved so far in the Portuguese licensed environment, Omega Systems’ strong reputation, experience in regulated markets, and presence in Portugal via its Lisbon office made it a strong applicant.

“We are very proud to welcome Omega Systems to APAJO, a special organization that is focused, determined, and already a feature of the Portuguese iGaming ecosystem via its local offices. We hope to see them in the future active in the local licensed market,” stated APAJO’s President of the Board, Ricardo Domingues. “It brings us satisfaction and a sense of responsibility that a company like Omega has chosen to support the efforts of APAJO, which underlines their commitment to regulated environments.” added Domingues.

Patrick Mann, Chief Commercial Officer of OMEGA Systems added: “OMEGA has had a presence in Lisbon for many years providing product development and support for our clients that operate in over 17 regulated jurisdictions around the world. Joining the APAJO organisation is a natural extension of our mission to provide a robust, responsible, and scalable gaming platform to operators worldwide. We look forward to learning from the experience that APAJO has, and contributing, based on our 15 years of accumulated knowledge and experience in regulated gaming.”

The Portuguese licensed market continued its strong performance in 2023, with yearly GGR growing above 28% against 2022. APAJO operators represent a large majority of this business and the association is focused on contributing to the continuous development of the market, as well as working with legislative and regulatory branches to find the best solutions for national objectives regarding online gambling.

Omega Systems’ expansion saw two major landmarks last year with the live launch of its technology in markets such as the U.S.A. and France.
