After a rigorous review process and independent third-party compliance testing, Starting 11 is proud to announce it has secured a UK Gambling Commission License. The UK is known for its long-established, exacting regulatory standards in this arena, and for its creation of a market that can be trusted by operators and players alike.
"This is huge for us," CEO Teague Orgeman said. "We've now been certified and tested to some of the highest standards in the world, and we can confidently launch cash games out to the world knowing Starting 11 meets those high standards."
With this new license, Starting 11 is poised to offer cash games in the UK, as well as in legal states within the United States and in Canada.
Specifically, the UK Gambling Commission has awarded Starting 11 a "Combined Remote Operating Licence." This makes Starting 11 one of a handful of fantasy companies in the world to have secured this type of UK license.
The ISO-accredited UK company NMi Gaming, a market leader in gaming compliance testing and auditing, performed the independent third-party compliance testing on Starting 11's platform. NMi certified compliance with the UK Gambling Act of 2005 and remote gambling and software technical standards.
"Achieving UK licensing and independent third-party compliance testing is a significant business milestone for Starting 11," Orgeman said. "We can now head into the rest of the English Premier League season and the summer World Cup with cash games. Our users have been asking for cash games since day one, and we are ready to deliver."
