Nick Hill is looking to secure further licenses

EveryMatrix has revealed that it is to follow up on its recent acquisitions of a number of new licences in the UK by pursuing approval in other jurisdictions around Europe.

The gaming software provider recently confirmed that it had been granted a General Software Licence, a General Betting Standard Real Event Licence and a Casino Licence by the UK Gambling Commission national regulatory body.

EveryMatrix had been operating in the UK for some time, but had been required to obtain the new licences in order to comply with new regulations introduced in November last year.

Speaking about the new licences, commercial director Nick Hill told TotallyGaming.com that the UK market is a “central point of growth” for EveryMatrix and the approval represents its commitment to customers in the region.

“The EveryMatrix platform has met the strict regulatory standards of UK Gambling Commission and this indeed showcases the quality of our software,” Hill said. “The licences will enable EveryMatrix to continue servicing software and tailored solutions to operators in the regulated UK market.

“The UK market has always been a central point of growth for our company and represents an important step in our long-term commitment to our clients. The UK represents almost 40 per cent of the overall European iGaming market and for every major player in this industry, a significant presence in this area is required.

EveryMatrix was formed in 2008, has offices in Europe, Asia and North America and its white label products include sports betting solution OddsMatrix, Casino Engine and gaming management and payment processing platform GamMatrix.

With its international presence, Hill went on to explain that EveryMatrix plans to build on its UK approval by pursuing licences in other markets across Europe. In addition to submitting an application for a licence in Denmark, Hill said the company is in the process of securing approval in two other countries, the details of which will be revealed in due course.

“Currently, EveryMatrix has been granted licences in three jurisdictions: the UK, Malta and Curacao,” Hill said. “Nevertheless, we are always interested in adding more licences to our portfolio.

“As a matter of fact, EveryMatrix applied to the Danish Gambling Authority for a combined Betting and Casino licence in Denmark and we will soon add it to our growing portfolio.

“Furthermore, we are in the process of acquiring two additional licences in Europe, which we will announce in the following months.”
