Malta-based casino games supplier Green Jade Games has received regulatory approval to launch in the United Kingdom.

The supplier license from the UK Gambling Commission allows the supplier to offer its unique slots and real-money arcade-style games to UK players for the first time.

Green Jade Games is the in-house development studio of William Hill-owned MRG Group and released its first slot game late last year with the launch of Hammer of Fortune.

The game features a personalised player hammer that changes with every spin and is used to knock symbols off the reels, which in turn gives players a second chance of triggering cash pots and free spins.

“Being granted a licence by the UK Gambling Commission is a major milestone in our journey as we look to establish Green Jade as a top game developer in regulated markets all over the world,” said Green Jade Games CEO Benedict McDonagh. “Our slots offer something truly different and we are thrilled to now be able to integrate them with online casino operators in the UK and to make them available to their players for the very first time.”

Green Jade worked with Maxima Compliance in order to ensure that its games were fully compliant with the requirements of the UKGC.

“We are thrilled to have assisted Green Jade Games in seamlessly acquiring a UKGC licence, allowing it to launch its fantastic range of games in the UK for the first time,” said Maxima Compliance founder and managing director Antonio Zanghi. “By providing guidance throughout the licensing application process, we are proud to have helped Green Jade focus its attention on creating some of the most exciting online casino content available.”
