Gaming technology company BetConstruct has taken a significant step towards seeing its live casino games being available to UK operators after the product was certified by Gaming Laboratories International.

The company’s live casino software is now likely to secure a licence from the UK Gambling Commission having met the stringent technical standards set by the regulator.

GLI is one of a select group of test houses approved to measure compliance against the Commission’s technical standards and equipment requirements.

Holding international accreditation for compliance with a range of ISO/IEC standards for technical competence in the gaming and gambling industries, GLI has tested and certified BetConstruct for both its live casino software and live studio.

This satisfies one of the BetConstruct’s strategic goals – to strengthen its position in Europe and Scandinavia through licensing in UK and Malta, as well as make new moves into Denmark, Sweden and Italy.

Speaking ahead of this week’s G2E Las Vegas, BetConstruct’s regional director for the US Jonathan Aiwazian said: “Live casino have also shown to be quite popular in the states. We look forward to displaying our live studio solution featuring real-life croupier as it presents an amazing opportunity to unearth new players and new revenues.”

The news comes after BetConstruct was shortlisted in the Innovation in Live Casino category at the inaugural CasinoBeats Awards, taking place on Tuesday, December 4, as part of the SBC Awards night.

The supplier is shortlisted in the category alongside Evolution Gaming and Ezugi.
