Time is Right for Online Growth as BetConstruct Receives Live Dealer Licence

Gaming software provider BetConstruct has been given the green light to offer live dealer games in the UK, just as the leading brands are pushing to expand their online portfolios.

Since launching in 2004, BetConstruct has forged partnerships in more than 50 countries and now provides a range of services, including gaming, sports betting and RNG software. As part of its ongoing expansion efforts,  it’s now able to offer six live dealer games in the UK.

BetConstruct Strengthens Relationship with UKGC

Working alongside the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC), the software supplier has met all the necessary regulatory requirements. In gaining approval from the UKGC, BetConstruct can now offer six live dealer rooms to local partners alongside an existing suite of virtual casino games.

In announcing the news on March 20, BetConstruct’s head of licensing and certification, Karine Kocharyan, said the company has been exploring the “market for a long time.”

With major changes to fixed odds betting terminals (FOBTs) coming in April, the time is right to launch new online products in the UK.

Since the turn of the year, many of the country’s leading brands have stated their intention to expand their digital platforms. Indeed, with retail revenue set to drop when FOBT betting limits are lowered, Ladbrokes Coral owner GVC has already started increasing its presence online.

As well as launching its live dealer studios in the UK, BetConstruct is planning to roll out a host of additional innovations.

“This is just the beginning, as our current offer of such popular games as Blackjack, Baccarat, Bet on Poker and Roulette, will be further supplemented with new branded games,” Kocharyan continued.

Time is Right for Online Innovations

For operators looking to capitalise on the new digital dynamic, one of BetConstruct’s most interesting assets could be its virtual reality (VR) software.

Although VR is still in an embryonic state, things are moving quickly. Over the last three years, Microgaming and NetEnt have both released VR prototypes.

Building on this, BetConstruct currently has a VR casino suite as well as live dealer VR tables. Putting the player inside a virtual casino, the software is compatible with all the major headsets, including Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

At present, BetConstruct VR is only licensed in Romania. However, with the company strengthening its ties with the UKGC and more brands focusing on the internet, the UK could be next.

As operators look to combat falling retail revenue and increased remote gambling tax, even the slightest edge could make a significant difference. With VR technology becoming increasingly sophisticated and popular, the leading brands will be hard-pressed not to consider it in the near future.
