24th July 2015 – Online and mobile casino operator LeoVegas has been granted a remote operator licence by the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC). Under the new licence, which became effective on July 23rd, LeoVegas will continue to focus on branding and acquisition within the UK market.
LeoVegas had been required to obtain the new licence under a new set of regulations that were introduced in the UK late last year, having previously operated in compliance with UK regulations set by the UKGC.
Johan Styren, LeoVegas CEO, said: “It is gratifying that LeoVegas has received a license in the UK. The UK is one of the key markets for us so it is natural for LeoVegas, as one of the leading online and mobile gaming companies in Europe, to operate under a local license in the UK market. We have made a clear footprint as the King of Mobile Casino, and with the operator license now in place, we will keep investing in the market.”
