The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) continues to issue licences to online gaming software providers, with platform provider BetConstruct and mobile development specialist mkodo the latest to be approved.

BetConstruct has been granted a Gambling Software Operating Licence, while mkodo has secured a Remote Operating Licence from the UKGC, allowing each to continue providing their services to operators in the UK market.

“The United Kingdom market is a key market for BetConstruct and is central to our growth plans. We are pleased that our Sports Betting software has met the UK Gambling Commission’s high regulatory standards,” BetConstruct commercial director George Voyatzis commented.

BetConstruct also holds a Category 2 certificate from the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, and has submitted applications for Class 2 and Class 4 approval from the Malta Gambling Authority.

Comenting on mkodo's licence, managing director Stuart Godfree said: “Regulation is often looked upon as an necessary evil, but at mkodo we actually see it as a benefit.”

“It makes us constantly review our practices, processes and the way we work and report to our clients,” he explained. “We very much welcome the new licensing and look forward to working with our clients within the UK's new regulatory framework.”

“The new guidelines ensure that all companies supplying technical, marketing and promotional services within the UK betting and gaming industry are operating at the highest standards – something that will benefit both customers and the industry as a whole. ”

mkodo also holds licences from the AGCC, and in the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Atlantic Canada.
