The publisher reports that the company has not confirmed the number of employees being laid off, but according to their data, it is several hundred. The only comment from the Evolution spokesman is that the studio in Qormi will be closed and those who directly work with this product risk being superfluous.
As the Times of Malta reports, this live casino studio expanded three months ago. Then NetEnt talked about increased demand. The launch of new live games continued, and Roulette MAX was released on December 1.
This did not come as a surprise to the Government of Malta. They were preparing for possible layoffs already in September, when Malta approved the buyout of NetEnt. All NetEnt employees who lose their jobs as a result of the restructuring are invited by the government to register with a job search company. Negotiations are also underway with other gambling developers who may be interested in the freed up workforce. In addition, a special telephone line has been opened where those who have been fired can contact.
