Online gaming software supplier Bede Gaming has become an Associate Member of the European Lotteries Association as the company continues to grow its lottery interests.

The news follows Bede’s selection as the digital platform partner of the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation in 2018.

Alex Butcher, managing director of Bede Gaming, said: “Acceptance as an Associate Member of the EL is a significant endorsement of the quality and reliability of our services to the lottery industry, underlining the strength of our reputation and commercial momentum in the sector.

“It is a real honour to be selected into this prestigious organisation to represent and uphold the membership body’s high standards of service,” continued Butcher.

“The opportunities for lotteries in integrating with powerful and scalable digital platforms are clear and we look forward to extending our offering in the coming months.”

The Bede platform boats a range of marketing tools alongside a portfolio of more than 3,000 games, including sportsbooks from Kambi and SBTech live on the platform.

Bede’s member status is expected to be officially confirmed by the Association’s General Assembly in May, during the 10th Congress hosted by Belgium’s Loterie Nationale.
