GoWild Gets UK License

This story was published more than 6 years ago.

Internet casino GoWild has announced that they've been granted a Remote Gambling Operating License from the UK Gambling Commission and can now offer their services in-country as a result.

The licensing is key for GoWIld, as it opens the doors to one of Europe's largest gambling markets and lends credibility to the group as being a reputable gaming site. The company has been obtaining gaming licenses throughout Europe, and now boasts a license through Malta as well. We've granted the casino a 4-star review for its great management, good promotions, and jackpots offered. The casino is powered by major software providers like Net Ent, Microgaming, Play'n GO, Nyx, and more.

Speaking about the licensing GoWild CEO Itai Zak said, "With a strong focus on expanding in regulated markets, licensing by the UK Gambling Commission is welcome news to GoWild. The UK is one of the biggest, oldest, and most respected gaming communities in the world, and operating there will allow us to increase our exposure, reach new audiences, and improve the local gaming experience. We look forward to opening our virtual doors in the UK, and successfully serving the local gaming needs."

Zak made no mention of the fact that only a couple of years ago GoWild chose to withdraw from the UK market entirely, selling their UK based customers to 32Red Casino in the process.

Yeah, no doubt it's a great benefit for Go Wild to be part of the UK market from now on and even already a nice casino that would be a whole new achievement for them I think, congrats.

Strange decision seeing as a couple of years ago they sold their entire UK customer list to 32Red and stopped accepting their play.
