“Together with Gamevy, NLS has a wide-ranging game library, exciting roadmaps, and the capacity to develop customized games. NLS will support the growth and diversity of the Lottery’s eInstant portfolio, making Norsk Tipping games more attractive to a wider and younger audience – focus on mobile game development is a key success factor for eInstants in Norsk Tipping.
