Isle Of Man GSC Issues Lord Of The Pot A B2C License

The Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission has issued a B2C license to Lord of the Pot (LOTP), an online sportsbook targeting esports and sports fans.

LOTP has now reached the final stages of planning to launch its offering after having obtained the requisite approval from the regulator.

Preparing to launch

LOTP will add live fantasy and pari-mutuel games from software supplier Tokigames prior to launch. Pragmatic Solutions will have back-office features while Affiliate Insider will be operating and overseeing the operator’s affiliate software.

At LOTP, a spokesman said: “The Isle of Man sets that standard when it comes to licensing online gambling organisations and with its understanding of the Asian market, it was the perfect fit for our business.

“Of course, we wanted to ensure we were working to its standards from the get-go and Amber Gaming has proved vital in helping us navigate the licensing process while also making sure that we not only meet but exceed these requirements.

Asian markets

“With our Isle of Man licence, we can now prepare to launch LOTP in the Asian markets we have identified as offering the greatest potential and with a product that we know is meeting the highest levels of safe gaming and responsible gambling.”

Amber Gaming support

During the licensing process, the sportsbook operator was supported by Amber Gaming to ensure that it was regulatory compliance.

LOTP will mainly target players in Asian markets following its launch, offering markets for games such as Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, League of Legends and traditional sports.

Amber Gaming’s Director and Head of Corporate Governance, Karen Yates, added: “We are delighted to have assisted LOTP in securing its B2C licence from the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission, which sets the highest possible standards for operators to meet.

“Just like the regulator, the Amber Gaming team is highly experienced  in the Asian market and we know what operators need to do in order to meet and exceed the requirements set by the Commission, which in this instance has ensured that LOTP has secured its licence in a timely manner.

“LOTP has a strong foundation on which to build a successful business in Asia and we are honoured to have played a part in its journey to date.”
