|Major UK gaming company Littlewoods Leisure has received a licence from the Isle of Man government to operate a regulated online casino.|
Lewis Rose, Interim President and CEO of Cryptologic, who will be providing the casino software said, 'as one of the first strictly regulated casino sites, littlewoodscasino.com reflects the growing migration of land-based standards onto the Internet.
'CryptoLogic has long advocated that regulation is the best solution for everyone, and I'm proud that CryptoLogic's software has been independently tested and approved for use under the Isle of Man government's rigorous regulatory requirements for online gaming.'
'Combining a trusted brand, a large player base and a local currency offering with state-of-the-art technology in a highly regulated jurisdiction is a formula for continued success in the European market.'
