Betting group EvenBet Gaming has announced that they've been granted a Class 1 gaming license by the Malta Gaming Authority, which supplements the Class 3 license that the company already held.
EvenBet had their Class 3 for their online poker software, but they decided to obtain a Class 1 license for the chance to offer casino games, which will augment their other offerings. Under the terms of the licensing, EvenBet can now provide their casino games to operators who also hold a license through the jurisdiction. We consider Malta to be one of the best gaming regulators, as they regularly hold their betting licensees accountable for their actions.
Commenting on the licensing EvenBet CEO Dmitry Starostenkov said, "Our business has grown exponentially this year following increased demand for our services and launching the EvenBet poker platform with several new clients. Securing this new MGA licence extension is an important move that allows licensed operators to gain access to our full product portfolio, including our casino games platform.
"Our casino and mini games functionality was built with player retention in mind, providing the ultimate tool that keeps poker players engaged in one place and gives them access to quality and complementary content."
As of press time we don't know who EvenBet will be working with to supply their games to.
