Gloabal Daily Fantasy Sports Gets Malta License

This story was published more than 5 years ago.

Fantasy sports group Global Daily Fantasy Sports has announced that it has obtained a supplier license in Malta, which will let the group license their software to betting operators.

The license allows for GDFS to supply their mobile and desktop daily fantasy sports software to operators, who'll then be able to offer the products to customers. The term of the license is for five years, and the company revealed that they'll seek out operators that don't operate in markets that require a specific license (like the UK).

Commenting on the achievement GDFS CEO Darcy Krogh said, "The MGA always showed a belief in the potential expansion of DFS in Europe. The granting of the license confirms that the company made the right choice when choosing Malta as its European base for its client facing and licensing operations.

"This licence is pivotal for Global, enabling us to expand our presence into additional markets and launch our dotcom network; it also allows us to offer our product and platform to a wider group of operators."

There's a market in Europe for all kinds of gambling I think and despite the Europeans strongly prefer sportsbetting over the DFS, the fantasy sports definitely have a huge room of becoming ore and more popular in the next years I think.
