Bede Gaming, the award-winning supplier of software to the online gaming industry, has been accepted as an Associate Member of the European Lotteries Association (EL), an important milestone as it looks to grow its lottery partner portfolio.
Bede’s Associate Member status is expected to be officially confirmed by EL General Assembly in May 2019, taking place during the 10th EL Congress hosted by Belgium’s Loterie Nationale.
The announcement comes after Bede’s selection as the digital platform partner of the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation in 2018.
Alex Butcher, Managing Director, Bede Gaming, said: “Acceptance as an Associate Member of the EL is a significant endorsement of the quality and reliability of our services to the lottery industry, underlining the strength of our reputation and commercial momentum in the sector.
“It is a real honor to be selected into this prestigious organisation to represent and uphold the membership body’s high standards of service. The opportunities for lotteries in integrating with powerful and scalable digital platforms are clear and we look forward to extending our offering in the coming months.”
The Bede platform features a wide range of proactive marketing tools alongside a portfolio of more than 3,000 games, including two major sportsbooks with Kambi and SBTech live on the platform.
Its cutting-edge responsible gambling tools, including deposit limits and development of further automated tools for flagging of players displaying signs of problem gambling behaviour set it apart as the safest place to play.
