Casino operator Stake announced this week that they're working with software group Aspire Global to launch a betting site in the UK under the domain stake.co.uk.
Stake is moving into the lucrative UK market after obtaining a license, and will offer casino games, sportsbetting services, and more to customers in the country. Aspire is providing the backbone platform for the site and will provide all games as well as backend management tools. The UK is notoriously tough on operators and for Stake it was important to find a licensed partner that could help ensure the site is operating within spec.
Stake has been growing as a betting brand globally and recently announced a partnership with the UFC, becoming the company's Official Betting Partner in Asia and Latin America. It was reported to have processed 30 billion wagers a year.
"When we planned our expansion to the regulated UK market, we searched for a partner who can provide the entire iGaming offering and is renowned for its technology, expertise and products," said Stake CEO Mladen Vuckovic. "Aspire Global met our high standards and will offer our players a unique experience across multiple verticals. We look forward to continue our expansion together with Aspire Global."
Aspire Global's CEO Tsachi Maimon added: "We are thrilled to partner with such a strong, fast-growing brand as Stake.com which provides an innovative gaming experience. This partnership is yet another proof of the strength and attractiveness in our complete iGaming offering. We look forward to support Stake.com in further strengthening their position as a fast-growing, innovative iGaming company in the large UK market."
