Slot and mobile game developer Push Gaming has announced it has received regulatory approval for its proprietary platform from both the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority.
As a result, the supplier will now have full control of its own technology development and delivery schedule thanks to a game host licence in the United Kingdom and a B2B licence in Malta.
This is set to help foster platform feature innovation and new in-game mechanics, while also enhancing bespoke support for operators. Moreover, it will also provide overall systems reliance and security, as it transitions to a fully-fledged B2B provider.
Mario Petraglia, director of legal and compliance at Push Gaming, commented: “We are delighted to see our efforts recognised by two of the leading authorities in the online gambling industry. We’ve managed to set up a bespoke operational toolkit to support our award-winning gaming content in record time, propelling us from boutique game developer to the ranks of full-service supplier.
“Compliance is at the core of Push Gaming’s operations and we take great pride in spearheading the development of responsible gaming products in the industry. We look forward to bringing further innovation across all regulated markets in Europe and beyond.”
As well as its acquiring of regulatory approval, Push Gaming has also partnered with BMM Test Labs, with the platform and game content already certified in accordance with the technical requirements of the UKGC and MGA, as well as Sweden, Denmark, Latvia and Estonia. The company also supports operations in Gibraltar, Alderney and Isle of Man.
The announcements build on the deal signed that saw Push Gaming agree to acquire GSI in an attempt to scale up its delivery of products directly to operator partners.
Regarding the acquisition, Push Gaming stated that the purchase will deliver added flexibility and control over its technology, as well as the development of platform functionality, game design and industry distribution.
At the time, James Marshall, CEO and co-founder at Push Gaming, added of the deal: “The acquisition of GSI is a real game changer for us and we’re confident it will help us to become a key player within the industry.
“The launch of our own platform gives us full control of our game development, delivery and operator integrations. We will now also benefit from GSI’s extensive industry knowledge and experience, as well as their fantastic technical team ”
