Intertain Group Limited Obtains Continuation of License from UK Gambling Commission

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 4, 2014) - The Intertain Group Limited ("Intertain" or the "Company") (TSX:IT) today announced that both InterCasino and Mandalay Media Limited ("Mandalay") have been granted a continuation of license from the UK Gambling Commission, thereby guaranteeing uninterrupted service for UK-based customers.

The continuation of license relates to amendments to the UK Gambling Licensing and Advertising Act that came into effect on November 1, 2014. The Act ensures that all remote gambling operators offering services in Britain are subject to consistent regulation, including player protection and consumer risks and issues.

InterCasino has operated in the UK since 1996 based on its existing license in Malta, a white-listed jurisdiction. Similarly Mandalay's bingo business, which was founded in 2009 and represents some of the UK's leading online bingo sites, is currently licensed in Gibraltar.

Thanks to the strength and integrity of both InterCasino's and Mandalay's gaming platforms, delivery of gambling operations, financial controls, marketing and commercial development, regulatory compliance, and IT security, the companies experienced a smooth transition to the new regulatory system.

Also included in the continuation of license:

  • InterPoker, InterCasino's poker brand.
  • Costa Bingo, Sing Bingo, City Bingo, Fancy Bingo and Rio Bingo, all of Mandalay's bingo skins.
