9/14/09 – Mangas Gaming subsidiary Betclick has announced that it is about to realise the fruits of major expansion planning with the launch of regionally oriented operational sites catering for online gamblers in Belgium, the Czech Republic, Hungary, The Netherlands and Romania.
Company spokesmen anticipate having the sites active by the end of October 2009. The launches will not involve duplication or overlap of marketing effort, as the targeted regions presently fall outside the principal markets of the Mangas group; the objective is to secure increased market share for the group the spokesmen revealed.
The company has also announced the recruitment of former PokerStars professional ace Isabelle Mercier as its new poker ambassador, an indication of the firm's determination to up its online poker effort.
“We are very strong on betting, but poker is not the strongest part of our offering," said a spokesman. "The signing of Isabelle Mercier means we will be putting in place a strategy to develop and improve our offering, but this will not be put into action for a few months yet. It is part of our overall project to enhance our poker platform.”
