isle manTradaCasino.com is the Isle of Man’s latest licensed online casino after the Department of Economic Development granted the site a remote gambling licence. The site met all the stringent standards set by the IoM gambling authority and Tony Stewart-Lord, director at the company, was understandably delighted at the prospect of the site opening.

“This is an exciting time for us with our plans to launch a no-download ‘gaming on the move’ model into a number of different countries. The licence from the Isle of Man allows us the opportunity to break into these markets, some which have an established iGaming customer base, and other new territories that offer great potential for online and mobile casino player development,” he said.

The Isle of Man can be found in the newly launched Gambling Regulators section of the tablog where an extensive background and rating for every jurisdiction can be found.

Lottomatica’s GTECH subsidiary has inked a deal to provide Swisslos Interkantonale Landeslotterie with instant ticket machines. GTECH will install the machines in a number of retail locations, including shopping malls, and 20 cantons where Swisslos offer games. They accept bills and coins, for now only dispensing instant tickets with the opportunity to add online Quick Pick at a later date.

Amaya Gaming Group will power Loto-Quebec’s online gaming industry site, Espace-jeux,  after a content deal was signed between the two. Loto-Quebec selected Amaya based on its “depth of online content and experience” and the enhanced offering it has had since getting its mitts on Chartwell Technology. The deal will see Espace-jeux benefit from the 140 proprietary and branded online casino games under Amaya with 39 of them created by the group during 2011. “This is an important milestone for Amaya, as it is our first opportunity to provide online content to a North American gaming website,” said David Baazov, President and Chief Executive Officer of Amaya Gaming Group.
