FansUnite secures B2B and B2C licences in Malta

2 minutes read
Canadian igaming operator and technology provider FansUnite Entertainment has secured a gaming service licence and critical gaming supply licence in Malta.

Issued by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), the licences will allow FansUnite to offer a range online gambling services in Malta and the wider European Union (EU) market, including casino, fixed-odds betting, pool betting and controlled skilled games.

Operators registered in the jurisdiction will have access to FansUnite’s B2B and B2C products.

The B2B critical gaming supply licence was issued to Askott Entertainment, the white label solutions provider FansUnite acquired in August, and will enable the business to sell its software to licensed sports betting and igaming operators.

FansUnite’s E.G.G. Limited (Malta) division will hold the new B2C gaming service licence, which will allow FansUnite to operate its own brands and game offerings in the wider EU market.

In addition, FansUnite will have the rights to provide full white label services to partners, meaning they will not need to undergo the licensing process, software test procedures, payment processing configurations and banking requirements.

“Having spent years building our technology to a global standard that is desirable by international regulatory bodies, we were able to meet Malta’s extremely stringent and rigorous technical, software, and corporate audits and qualify for two separate licences,” FansUnite chief executive Scott Burton said.

“With the approval in hand, we will look to continue executing on our growth strategy, by collaborating with new partners in Europe in order to distribute our sports and esports betting platform along with our RNG casino game titles to an expanded customer base.”
