Oryx Gaming, subsidiary of Bragg Gaming Group, has received a supplier licence from the GB Gambling Commission.
Oryx Gaming receives UK licence

The licence will allow Oryx to supply its content to operators across the country. A number of Oryx games have been certified for the market and are expected to be live with operators by the end of the year.

Great Britain represents the latest territory Oryx has gained access to this year, having previously secured licences to offer its services in the Netherlands and Greece.

Bragg chief commercial officer Chris Looney said: “The UK online gambling market is unmatched in terms of size and maturity and the world’s leading operators all have a presence in the jurisdiction.”

Looney added that securing a licence in the market offer “significant growth opportunities” for the supplier

“This licence and our pending entry into the UK market before the end of the year will help to accelerate our international growth trajectory and offers another proof point of the success we continue to achieve with the execution of our global market expansion initiatives,” he added.

The GB Gambling Commission also recently granted a UK licence to casino content developer Jogo Global.

Bragg, meanwhile, is on the hunt for a new chief executive after Richard Carter departed amid a strategic review of the business that will see the CEO’s duties restructured. Its chair, and former Ontario Lottery and Gaming chief Paul Godfrey, will replace him on an interim basis. The supplier explained that its “exceptional” growth over the past six quarters – including a 9.9% rise in Q3 revenue – was not reflected in its public markets performance, meaning a strategic overhaul was required.
