DWG Group granted GB Gambling Commission licence

12 November 2019

Games provider and social casino operator Design Works Gaming Group (DWG) is set to make its debut in online real money gaming after being granted the necessary licence by the GB Gambling Commission.

This will allow the company to supply GB-facing online casinos with its portfolio of slot titles and gamification tools.

The UK- and Arizona-based developer expects several commercial agreements with leading operators to be signed in the coming months.

Andy Harris, chief executive of DWG UK, said: “We are delighted to have been granted our GB licence, which marks a very important milestone in our development as an international provider of casino content.

“Being licensed by the Gambling Commission is the start of an exciting period for DWG, and we are confident that with our portfolio of varied and validated content we will hit the ground running as we look to gain serious traction on this side of the Atlantic.”

DWG has a long history as a land-based supplier, providing titles to operators including Novomatic, Aristocrat, Konami and IGT.

The provider also operates five social casinos, including Diamond Sky Casino, Spin Vegas Slots, and Jade Diamond Casino. All of DWG’s development is performed in-house. This includes the creation of over 100 game titles a year to service each of its business verticals.
