First UK licensed online casino powered by Chartwell

The online gambling software provider Chartwell Technology reports that Extrabet, a wholly owned subsidiary of IG Group Holdings plc, has launched the first UK Gambling Commission licensed online casino powered by Chartwell.

London-based IG Group Holdings plc is a FTSE 250 company with global operations generating revenues in excess of $200 million. Formed in 1974, group is the holding company of IG Index plc and Extrabet Limited which operate online and telephone spread betting and fixed odds betting businesses in Britain.

IG Index plc is regulated by the Financial Services Authority in Britain, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission and most recently the UK Gambling Commission.

The IG Sport casino will be launched and marketed through

In order to fulfil IG Index's requirements and commitment to regulatory provisions, Chartwell's gaming system underwent a thorough certification process by the UK regulatory authority. This included both corporate and software certification to ensure maximum security and reporting functionality necessary for Chartwell to receive certification by the Gambling Commission.

"This event marks a significant milestone for Chartwell, the IG Group, and online gaming regulation as a whole", said Darold H. Parken, President and CEO of Chartwell.

"Delivering the software solution to power the UK's first licensed online gaming site elevates our company and technology to the next level and I am proud of every member of our team for achieving this industry first. I would also like to complement the efforts of the IG Group, their pursuit of growth built on technology while conducting business within an extensive regulatory framework clearly defines this organisation".

"We're delighted to add Chartwell's casino to our on-line sports betting portfolio," said head of IG Sport, Stuart Lane. "While we're continuing to see growth with both fixed-odds and sports spread betting, we also recognise the appetite for other modes of on-line gaming and thus the benefits of increasing the offerings on our sports platforms. With the addition of the on-line casino we are now a step nearer to our long term goal in bringing both Extrabet and IG Sport customers everything they require on one betting site."

    "I just started using bitcoin myself. I buy bitcoin using my checking account thru Coinbase. It takes a little longer than using a debit/credit card but if I understand it correctly the fees are lower that way. Then I transfer bitcoin to my wallet at Blockchain before depositing at an online casino. I made two deposits at Slotastic! and one at Slotocash and each time the money was there immediately. The only problem I had was on my first deposit I did not account for the conversion difference when making a minimum amount deposit and my bonus did not get triggered automatically. I got it soon worked out though when I contacted support thru Live Chat and explained the mistake was caused by my first time using bitcoin. They credited my account with the bonus and just suggested I add a little more next time to cover the additional fees and conversion rate differences. I didn't do too good at Slotocash but did much better at Slotastic! and even though I made my deposit using bitcoin there was a message on the Withdraw screen saying I had to send in their Credit Card Authorization Agreement before I could make a withdrawal. I contacted Live Support to clarify and they advised I only had to send in a copy of my drivers license and a recent utility bill to verify my identity not my credit card. After I emailed these documents I received an email the next day advising my documents had been received and approved. I then submitted my withdrawal request and expected an immediate response just like I got on my deposit but it didn't happen. That's been about 7 hours ago now so I'm guessing it might be a day or two at least if I'm lucky before anything happens. But if it happens then that'll be much better than having to wait weeks or months like some have to. I'll update later when the withdrawal is finally completed."
