Edinburgh based Premier Punt, the Daily Fantasy Sports and sportsbook operator (or “Daily Fantasy Sports-book” (DFS-B) operator, as they describe themselves), was awarded a Remote Casino licence from the UK Gambling Commission this week. This adds to their growing collection of licences which already includes pool betting and sportsbook, the latter having been awarded earlier this year.
John Gordon, CEO, commenting on this latest piece of news coming out of the quickly expanding Scottish company said:
“The Remote Casino licence adds another string to our bow. We have no immediate plans to incorporate casino games into our Premier Punt platform but it gives us options on stand-alone sportsbook and casino products. We are branching into B2B this year so the addition of this licence means clients have a wider scope for what features they can request in their bespoke product.
At a time where we are generating interest amongst potential investors, this licence along with our other licenses, patent pending status on our Daily Fantasy Sports-book platform and media deals all adds value to investors so we are very pleased with the award of the licence.
