BetConstruct has moved to secure further licensing accreditation from the Malta Gaming Authority, after revealing it has acquiring approval to add poker to its set of permitted products.

Lauded as a “perfect addition” to the current set of licenses already obtained, which covers sports betting as well as the provision of fantasy sports, the new addition complements further approvals obtained earlier this year.

Via its fresh accreditation the gaming technology specialist and platform provider has been granted an approval from the MGA to add Poker vertical (type 3) under both B2C and B2B licences.

This builds upon the company also securing approval from the regulator for its B2C operation to add casino vertical (type 1), which enables games from well-known Malta-based casino providers.

Upon making this announcement in May, BetConstruct head of licensing and certification Karine Kocharyan commented that it was an excellent opportunity for its partners to use a “fully-fledged white label offering through one skin”, while teasing the addition of poker, something that has now come to fruition just five months on.

Vigen Badalyan, BetConstruct founder and CEO, explained: “We are very pleased to secure an online poker licence as a result of the continuous development and improvement of our software.

“Meeting high technical standards of MGA, we now offer to build on high game profiles and attract maximum player numbers with our poker software.

“European operators can take full advantage of our system, providing increased levels of protection for novice players from losing their bankroll to far more experienced players, and advanced game functionality including multi-table play for professional players.”

It has been a big month for BetConstruct thus far, with the firm moving one step closer to seeing its live casino games being available to UK operators, after the product was certified by Gaming Laboratories International.

Following which a further deal was agreed with Helio Gaming, which will see the supplier’s lottery games become available on the BetConstruct platform.
