Asian online gaming operator Fun88.com has said that it has launched its gaming operations from the Isle of Man after securing a licence from the white-listed jurisdiction earlier this year.
Licensed through Welton Holdings Limited, Fun88 currently offers sports betting with up to 4,000 in-running games every month through its Isle of Man licence, while also offering a full suite of casino games under a licence issued by First Cagayan Leisure & Resort Corporation in the Philippines.
"I am delighted that Fun88.com have chosen the Isle of Man and I look forward to seeing the company flourish and grow on the Island," said Garth Kimber, Head of e-Gaming development of the Isle of Man Government. "
"They are further proof that quality gaming companies are finding that the Isle of Man is succeeding in creating the right environment to do business from. We continually work with our licence holders to maintain the environment and look forward to a relationship where we can continue to assist Fun88.com with their future growth."
Fun88 was officially granted its gaming licence from the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Committee earlier this year in July and joins other licensees including PokerStars, Paddy Power, betinternet, BoyleSports, and fellow Asian operator 188bet.
"We are proud and delighted to be awarded the Isle of Man gaming licence and look forward to providing state-of-the-art products and personalised customer service to our valued members," said Nathan Walker, Operations manager of Fun88.
