Internet betting software developer Realistic Games has announced that it has been awarded a Remote Software Operating License by the UK Gambling Commission, becoming one of the first companies to get the license.
Getting the remote gaming license is an important step for Realistic, as operators will have to be in compliance beginning October 1st, with software developers having a January 1st deadline. This is the second license granted to Realistic this year, as the group gained a Gibraltar remote betting license in January.
Commenting on the licensing, Realistic Gaming 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."
“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.”
