1X2 Network has obtained a B2B supplier licence from the Malta Gaming Authority as it bids to “establish itself as a leading game developer for operators in regulated markets”.

Lauded as “a notable step in the growth of the group,” securing the licence builds upon a notice of recognition in Malta that the supplier received last year. This means that titles from the developer and content aggregator’s 1X2gaming and Iron Dog Studio brands are fully compliant with the MGA’s “stringent standards”.

Via the new licence the firm is able to provide its full suite of games to Malta-licensed operators active in regulated markets, seamlessly allowing for operation in Europe.

This includes online casino offerings such as Blood Queen, Rainbow Wilds, Faerie Nights and Iron Dog Studios’ first Megaway slot – Pirate Kingdom Megaways, alongside future titles such as 1X2gaming’s Battle Maidens and Iron Dog Studio’s Megaways Jack.

Kevin Reid, chief commercial officer at 1X2 Network, said of the approval: “We are very proud to have received our B2B supplier licence from the Malta Gaming Authority, one of the most trusted regulators in the world.

“We have built a reputation for delivering popular slots and table games to operators in regulated markets around the world and this permit reinforces our position as a highly reputable developer.

“With our licence in hand, we will now continue to expand into new regulated markets, partnering with more operators than ever before.”

Last week 1X2 Network rolled-out its second agreement of 2020 after strengthening its partnership with igaming software provider Iforium, following a link-up with Black Pudding Games.

Under the terms of the deal Iforium is to gain access to additional third-party game studios via the 1X2 Network 3PI aggregation platform, designed to provide operators with access to smaller developers through which it strives to offer added differentiation.
