Degree 53 Awarded Remote Operating Licence by UK Gambling Commission
18 May 2015
We are extremely proud to share that we have recently been awarded a remote operating licence for the design and build of Remote Gambling Software in the UK market.
We are now one of only a small number of agencies in the UK that are licensed to build bespoke transactional mobile apps, websites and services to UK gambling operators.
The licence means that we are fully compliant with the terms of the Gambling (licensing and advertising) Act that came into force late last year and can continue to provide services to our UK licensed gambling clients.
To be awarded a licence, we had to prove that it adhered to all of the UK Gambling Commission’s strict security guidelines and best practices, including elements of ISO 27001. The thorough process took six months.
Andrew Daniels, MD and founder of Degree 53, said: "Since we were born out of the gambling industry, it is an important market for us. Being awarded this licence as it demonstrates that our products are built to a high standard of quality with a close eye on stopping any potential security implications, both of which are requirement of the UK Gambling Commission. With the topic of security firmly in the public eye in recent years, granting of the licence stands us in good stead to deliver secure solutions for other industries as we continue to diversify."
