The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has added GECO Gaming, Sportradar and iSoftBet to the list of operators and service providers licensed to offer products in the UK online gambling market.
Sportradar’s subsidiary Betradar has been awarded remote and operating licenses to provide its UK-based clients with virtual sports services. This applies for the integration via XML-feed-integration as well as via Betradar’s Remote Game Server.
“We’re delighted to have met the high quality standards set by the UKGC which at the same time underlines the quality of Betradar’s products,” said Neale Deeley, Commercial Director at Sportradar. “This official license lets us look forward to expand and to offer great products and services to clients in the UK market. Being a key market this was of high importance for us and we can now target further growth.”
“More operators are signing up to GECO every week, so it’s a very exciting time for us,” said GECO Chief Executive Mark Paling. “We are also making GECO available to dozens more operators at a time by linking up with aggregators such as Virtue Fusion and GTS, while accessing popular bingo sites like, Kitty Bingo & Lucky Pants Bingo through Daub Alderney.”
“We are welcoming on board both game developers and operators,” Paling added. “Initial connections are complete, with many more in progress and in the pipeline. GECO really is going to substantially shrink the distance between developers and operators.”
The UKGC also approved iSoftBet for remote casino operating and software licenses.
Licenced in Alderney and with a vast existing gaming portfolio certified in Italy, Spain and Belgium; iSoftBet’s newly-acquired UK license allow UK operators to provide iSoftBet’s selection of casino software to their players.
“The accreditation of our UK license represents another landmark step in the commercial development of iSoftBet,” Chief Executive Nir Elbaz said. “As a leader in providing innovative and exciting gaming products and advocates of responsible gambling, iSoftBet’s newest license will allow the company to further boost its presence in regulated markets, and provide content to the thriving UK market.”
