Online and mobile slot developer Realistic Games announced this week that it had been granted a Remote Service Operating Licence by the UK Gambling Commission.
At a time when many developers and online casinos are re-considering their involvement in the UK market due to recent changes in UK gambling law, Realistic Games has taken the decision to invade the UK market.
This licence is the second operating licence awarded to Realistic Games this year with the developer having earlier been granted a licence in Gibraltar back in January in a massive step forward for the company.
Realistic Games has gained a reputation in the online slots industry for releasing some top slots titles including the American history-themed Riverboat Gambler, the thrilling 6 Appeal, and the swashbuckling Pirate Radio.
Realistic Games Commercial Director Andy Harris said “There are many things for our customers to attend to as a result of the introduction of the Act, so getting our licensing in place early gives them one less thing to worry about.”
Harris added “Furthermore, we hope that it provides potential customers with another positive reason to choose Realistic Games as a new supplier partner. This licence represents a significant step for us. We’ve worked closely with the Gambling Commission throughout the application process and have now passed the most stringent tests of probity and due diligence. Just as importantly, we are ahead of most of our rivals. As we are already compliant with the new regulations we’ll not be caught up in any last minute scramble to gain licences or comply with the new regulations.”
