(PRESS RELEASE) -- Live dealer and betting games studio BetGames is ready to greatly expand its operations in the U.K. following multiple new licences issued by the U.K. Gambling Commission (UKGC).
This latest set of UKGC approvals enables BetGames to provide facilities for betting on real events (Betting Host for Real Events), as well as for virtual events (Betting Host for Virtual events). This comes as an addition to BetGames’ existing Gambling Software and Casino Host licenses for the U.K.
