Spribe has lauded a “big step for a young company” after the igaming developer gained licence approval from the UK Gambling Commission.

The nod, which followed the group receiving approval from the Malta Gaming Authority, permits Spribe to launch its suite of turbo, poker and skill-based games with UK operators.

David Natroshvili, managing partner of Spribe, explained: “Securing a UK licence is a milestone moment for Spribe, allowing us to deploy our thrilling, entertaining and unique content to operators in the market for the first time.

“Our games offer something different and have been designed to appeal to the lucrative Millennial player. They have proved to be a big hit in other markets, and we believe they will be just as popular with players in the UK.

“Content is now one of the most powerful ways operators can stand out from their rivals and our turbo games in particular allow them to do this while also engaging new player audiences that were not previously interacting with their brand.”

The developer’s turbo games, which includes titles such as Aviator, Mines and Dice, are mobile optimised and have been designed to appeal to a younger audience than traditional slots and table games.

Furthermore, the firm also offers operators a portfolio of skill games and table games including Poker, Backgammon, Bura, Seka and Domino, which are designed and developed in its studios in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Securing its UK licence forms part of ambitious expansion plans that will see the game developer enter key regulated markets over the coming months.

Natroshvili added: “After an extensive verification procedure we are pleased to receive approval from UKGC. This is a big step for a young company. I also want to thank our partners who were patient and supportive during the lengthy licensing period, I believe our games will help them even more dominate Great Britain markets and reach new audiences.”
