Playtech Technology Joins Online Casino Gaming Association
The decision made by online casino technology firm Playtech to join the Remote Gambling Association (RGA) comes hot on the heels of its most recent acquisition. The online casino firm recently purchased a Certificate of Prior Approval from Alderney in the Channel Islands and migrated its technology to the Rank Group’s Hard Rock Casino in Alderney. Both moves come as the firm prepares to sell shares in its online casinos software enterprise on the London Alternative Investment market next month.
A spokesman for Playtech technology announced that it is extremely pleased with its new membership in the RGA, citing the organization’s work is invaluable to the online casino industry. The RGA was founded in July 2005 following a merger between the Interactive Gaming, Gambling and Betting Association (IGGBA) and the Association of Remote Gambling Operators (ARGO). The organization represents the interests of online casino operators in the areas in which their members are located. The group regularly speaks on behalf of the online casino industry to national governments and tries to encourage high standards of integrity within the industry itself.
In order to be eligible for RGA membership, online casino technology providers must supply their product to one operator licensed by the Isle of Man, Channel Islands or European Economic Area. Playtech joins a distinguished list of online casino industry players holding RGA membership, including major sports betting firms Ladbrokes and Bet on Sports.
