Lion Gaming Group, an iGaming technology platform provider that offers white label casino and sportsbook solutions built for the future of the iGaming industry, has announced the completion of the acquisition of 1Click Games to expand its current suite of comprehensive iGaming offerings.
“As Lion Gaming Group continues to explore the ways we can enhance our product offering, we’re very excited to add 1Click Games to our portfolio of companies. This acquisition instantly brings more than 40 online casino brands directly into our portfolio and further adds to our talented team,” Duncan McIntyre, President and CEO of Lion Gaming Group, said.
Founded in 2014, 1Click Games has quickly grown into a premium licensed supplier of iGaming content worldwide. The company boasts a comprehensive product line offering white label and turnkey online casino and sportsbook software, land-based casino solutions, lottery software and game aggregator solutions.
“We are excited that our company has joined the Lion Gaming Group family! This partnership brings together the strengths of both companies and creates a unique advantage in our global expansion efforts. We can offer a range of premier products to both regular and crypto businesses through the combination of technologies and products. It allows us to create a truly unique proposition for the market. This partnership allows us to achieve even greater success in the gaming industry. We look forward to working with the Lion Gaming Group team to bring our customers the fullest possible gaming experience,” Maksims Terehovics, CEO at 1Click Games, said.
The acquisition of 1Click Games brings a talented and experienced workforce with expertise in engineering, software development, UI/UX design, payments, compliance, and customer service. This expansion of the global company’s talent pool will allow Lion Gaming Group to continue innovating and deliver top-quality products and services to its customers.
“The cost synergies between the merged entities will increase our profit margins an additional 15%+, and our positive cash flow is expected to grow well into the future. Positive cash flow is a rare feat in the gaming industry, as more than 90% of companies competing in this space generate negative earnings and cash flows. Plus, this acquisition is perfectly aligned to support our go-public initiatives,” Ted Yew, Chief Financial Officer at Lion Gaming Group, said.

SBC is excited to announce that nominations for the Game Creation and Game People categories of the prestigious Game Developer Awards, returning to Malta for their third edition in May, are now open. The nomination period will last until 24 February.
The awards ceremony, which is part of the CasinoBeats Summit conference and exhibition, will take place at the InterContinental Hotel on 25 May. The lavish event that recognises and celebrates the creative and innovative game development teams behind the industry’s most successful titles will be attended by 400 guests.
The CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards will feature 19 categories that honour the top game studios, individual casino games, streamers and game elements as well as innovation and the people who have contributed to the success of the best casino titles of the year. The categories are divided into five main groups:
SBC has also once again teamed up with SlotCatalog, a casino game ranking and insights platform, to create three data-driven categories for the CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards 2023.
These categories include Outperforming Game Studio of the Year, which will be presented to the three game studios (small, medium, large) whose slot rank has increased the most compared to their position a year ago; Game Studio of the Year, which will be given to three game studios with the highest slot rank over the last 12 months; and Rookie of the Year, which will be awarded to the new game studio that went from having no distribution last year to achieving the biggest impact over the past year
Rasmus Sojmark, CEO & Founder of the event organiser SBC, said: “The CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards are a truly special occasion in my eyes. This ceremony is an opportunity to honour the often overlooked elements of game development, such as the best soundtrack, innovative game mechanics, unexpected success, and the individuals who made it all happen. It’s an event that recognises and celebrates the creativity, fun, and entertainment that make our industry a great place to work.”
The shortlists for the Game Performance and Game Marketing categories of the CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards will be selected by SBC’s independent panel of judges, and the winners will be chosen through audience live voting at the CasinoBeats Summit conference and trade show.
The Game Creation and Game People categories will be open for nominations from 12 January to 24 February and the winners will be decided by the independent panel of judges. The Game People category is a new addition to the CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards that aims to recognise and celebrate individuals who have actively contributed to the success of a top casino product.
The SlotCatalog categories, which are purely data-driven, will not require nominations or go through a judging process.
Last year’s winners of the CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards included companies such as Blueprint Gaming, Habanero, Peter & Sons, Playtech, Pragmatic Play, Relax Gaming and Stakelogic.
This year’s ceremony at the luxurious InterContinental Hotel will feature a welcome drinks reception and a lavish three-course dinner with complimentary beer, wine, and spirits. Tables and individual tickets are available to purchase here.
The shortlists will be announced on 21 March. Nominate here.
The Authority is hereby publishing the amendments to the Player Protection Directive (Directive 2 of 2018).
We believe that safe, sustainable, and responsible gaming is of paramount importance to the gaming sector. Following feedback received through the dedicated consultation process, the Authority is hereby publishing these amendments with the aim of strengthening and clarifying the current player protection framework.
This framework will support the Authority’s initiatives moving forward and will facilitate the Authority’s plans to continuously improve the player protection framework, including the eventual publication of detailed player protection guidelines for licensees. The Authority is in the process of conducting detailed research and garnering expert experience to serve as the foundation for the eventual publication of such guidelines.
The amendments delve into, inter alia, the licensees’ obligations regarding their responsible gaming policies and procedures, and the introduction of markers of harm that must be considered by licensees when determining effective measures and processes to detect and address problem gambling. Provisions relating to real-money reinforcement and staff training have also been addressed via the amendments.
The amendments are being proposed on the basis of a review of the key sections of the Directive carried out by an expert in the field, and on the basis of the Authority’s own research and experience garnered through the Responsible Gaming Unit’s audits and familiarisation visits.
Subject to the transitory provisions of the Directive, the amendments coma into force on 12 January 2023.
