Multi-player igaming engagement software developer BeyondPlay has been granted a licence by the UK Gambling Commission to supply its services to UK-licensed operators. 

Securing a remote casino host and gambling software licence from the UKGC, BeyondPlay can now offer its portfolio of “community-oriented products that transform solo game sessions into captivating multiplayer entertainment experiences”. 

“This stamp of approval marks a momentous occasion, as BeyondPlay will introduce new and thrilling gaming experiences, offering unparalleled entertainment value and community play for real-money gaming operators in Great Britain,” commented Karolina Pelc, Founder and CEO of BeyondPlay.

“Our multiplayer product boasts an array of features that exceed standard responsible gaming requirements. These features include low-stake and community-pooled betting, spectator mode and time-outs, which ensure that players can enjoy the product in a secure and enjoyable environment.

“We are extremely grateful to the team at Harris Hagan and our investors for their advice, cooperation and support throughout what has been a detailed and thorough qualification process, especially given the evolving nature of the product and investment structure of the business.”

The UK licence follows BeyondPlay being authorised a B2B critical supply licence from the Malta Gaming Authority in December last year. The company also has licence applications underway in Ontario, Sweden, and several US jurisdictions.

Bahar Alaeddini, Partner at Harris Hagan, added: “We are very pleased to have navigated BeyondPlay through their licence application and to have played a part in their journey to obtaining a GB licence. 

“Karolina and her fantastic team worked diligently, passionately and relentlessly, and always with good humour, throughout the process. We are thrilled for them and excited to watch BeyondPlay grow and see the opportunities that lay ahead.”

In February, LeoVegas divested its initial 25 per cent stake in BeyondPlay to a group of strategic investors, including venture firm Bettor Capital for €1.9m.
