Covid-19 pandemic has set back the Romanian gambling industry by five years, according to the data from the National Institute of Statistics (INS).

The Romanian gambling operators experienced one of the most severe declines of the last 30 years between March and May this year. The local gambling and entertainment industry fell by about 24% in March 2020 compared to the same period of 2015. The gambling sector’s March turnover was only 57 % of February’s. Then, in April and May, gambling businesses reported almost zero revenue.

“Given the situation, we made the necessary business continuity decisions and decided that the safety of our customers and employees was our main priority. We focused on the long-term business principles and we organized our activity so that we would be able to adapt as quickly as possible to the multitude of changes that occurred during this period. For example, over the past three months we went from ‘closed until further notice’ to being open round the clock and then back to limited opening hours (until 11 PM, later extended to midnight), and we hope to be able to return to our non-stop hours as soon as possible. During all this time, we’ve been focusing on communicating with our clients and employees, for whom we’ve taken extra health and safety measures. Maintaining communication with professional associations and the authorities for accurate information on the latest developments concerning gambling halls was equally important,” Attila “Otto” Török, strategy director at Game World Romania, said.

According to the latest data provided by the National Gambling Office (ONJN), 250 gambling operators are currently active on the Romanian market. They contribute about EUR 600 million to the state budget every year. At the beginning of 2020, there were about 45,000 direct employees of the local gambling industry and a few other thousand worked in related and dependent fields.

“According to Romslot data, for each RON the Romanian gambling industry generates, the upstream and downstream industries – HoReCa, IT&C, security – generate another 5 RON,” Török said.

He added that Game World currently has about 400 employees, while the parent group has a workforce of about 2000.

When talking about the biggest challenges the gambling industry is now facing, Török says these are related to the coronavirus pandemic and the health crisis, even though all operators have strictly implemented all the measures required by authorities to limit the spread of the virus.

Parimatch Tech will launch Parimatch Tech Academy in November, a free IT academy for talented people who have ambitions to become a developer. This is not only an opportunity to study technology through real projects, but also a chance to become employed at an international company.

Training at the Academy will consist of three stages. During the first stage, students will learn about the basics of communication and teamwork, as well as the specifics of Parimatch Tech’s operations. The second stage is focused on coding, with students selecting one of the following programming technologies: .Net, JavaScript, Native Android and Native iOS. Programming training is designed to last for three and a half months.

The final stage includes a paid internship working on a real project at Parimatch Tech, which will last for two and a half months, meaning the entire training process will take six months. Upon completion, students will have in-depth understanding of the IT product development process, learn to work in a team and solve problems using forward-thinking approaches. The top performing academy graduates will receive a job offer from Parimatch Tech.

Experienced specialists at Parimatch Tech will act as teachers and mentors for those taking the course. Our partners, experts from the Israeli center for innovative IT education, DAN.IT, will review the programs, methods and tools used in the training process, as well as the quality of teaching.

There is a selection process for the Academy, which consists of several stages. Applications opened on October 12, and all forms must be submitted by October 29. The next stage, from November 2 to November 5, includes an online test that will help us select the candidates that demonstrate aptitude for programming, and then there will be tests on the basics of programming. The final stage is an online interview with mentors and course teachers, which will take place on November 6. To take part in the selection process, you need to sign up via the link. Parimatch Tech Academy will recruit 100 students in total.

A presentation on Parimatch Tech Academy will take place on October 26 at PMHUB. You can join the event online via the link.
