The content supplier can supply games to players in the UK under the licence.
UK.- The Czech Republic-based content supplier Synot Games has gained a licence from the British regulator, the Gambling Commission, to supply games to players in the country.
Synot develops content for online and land-based operators. It is already certified by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) and was awarded licences in Portugal, Denmark and Sweden in 2019.
It also supplies content in Italy, Spain and Greece, where it contributed to OPAP’s rollout of 25,000 video lottery terminals.
Chief executive Ivan Kodaj said: “This is a huge step for us as a company. The UKGC is known to have strict regulations to comply with, so having the licence granted to us represents a significant step, which we took one day before Christmas.
“We are now able to integrate our slot offer with online casino operators in the UK and make them available to their players for the very first time.”
Synot said its main strategic priority in 2021 will be to forge new partnerships in the UK.
Synot chief commercial officer Martina Hrabinská said: “Our sales team will now be focusing on branching out to UK-based customers. Gaining as much exposure as possible to reach as many players as possible across the country will be their main goal for now.”
Meanwhile, the Gambling Commission has launched a consultation on plans to revamp the way it carries out research on gambling behaviour.
