Spain's Red Rake secures UK supplier licence

9 January 2019

Red Rake Gaming is to begin offering its gaming content to both new and existing customers in the UK after securing a remote gambling software licence in the market.

The games developer has already tested and certified its first batch of content in line with UK Gambling Commission standards, and plans to launch these titles in the coming weeks.

Based in the Spanish city of Valencia, Red Rake is now in the process of certifying a second batch of games in order to offer a wider range of content under its new licence. The supplier’s portfolio includes various slots, video bingo and video poker titles, as well as blackjack games for online and mobile.

Red Rake already works with various UK-licensed operators in other regions and will now be able to offer its gaming content to these companies in the UK. Existing Red Rake clients that hold UK licences include Betsson, BetConstruct, iSoftBet, Marathonbet, Pariplay and SBTech.

“Acquiring the licence to operate in the UK market is a great step in our regulated strategy for 2019," Red Rake managing director of Malta operations Nick Barr said.

“It will have an immediate impact as many of our customers have UKGC licences and they will be able now to offer our games to their UK player base.”

Barr, who joined Red Rake from Genii in August 2018, added that the licence would enable the developer to further grow its client base, revealing it has had requests for content from various UK-focused operators.

Upon taking on his role at Red Rake, Barr outlined his desire to take the company into new markets. At the time, the developer was active in Spain and Italy but has since also secured licences in Portugal, Romania and now the UK.

As part of this expansion strategy, Red Rake in September appointed Javier Marti as its new commercial chief. Marti previously served as key account manager at NetEnt.
