Casino game software supplier Skyline Solutions has officially launched in the Isle of Man after being awarded a gaming licence on the island.
Skyline Solutions has been awarded a Gambling Supervision Commission B2B software supplier licence, which will allow the company to resell games to a global market of customers.
Skyline engaged Douglas-based SolutionsHub to assist with the successful application process.
Skyline director Angie Chung said: “We are thrilled to have been awarded the licence and to officially announce our launch.
“The Isle of Man offers us a superb base from which we can serve clients all over the world and gives our software developer partners the confidence that comes with such a highly respected licence.
“The Isle of Man is already home to some hugely respected igaming companies and we are delighted to be joining such prestigious neighbours.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the team at SolutionsHub for their experience and knowhow at our disposal throughout the application process and we look forward to a successful relationship working together.”
The GSC Software Supplier Licence was developed following demand from companies located around the world requesting to be licensed by a highly experienced regulator. Software suppliers who obtain a licence can ensure they meet the same high standards as the Isle of Man-licensed operators they supply their games to.
Nick Wright, SolutionsHub Chief Operating Officer, said: “The Isle of Man licence is among the most respected in the industry and is renowned for offering operators and their players the highest levels of safety and security.
“Being licensed in the Isle of Man allows Skyline Solutions to serve a large and lucrative market and to achieve the company’s goals of growing rapidly. We’re delighted to be helping them on the way to achieving success.”
Lyle Wraxall, CEO Digital Isle of Man commented: “It continues to be a busy time for licence applications through the GSC and I am delighted to see Skyline join our approved list of licence holders. It’s great to see that through the professional guidance of SolutionsHub another successful licence application has joined our well-renowned ranks.”

ACMA Issues Formal Warning to Supplier Proxous
Proxous Advanced Solutions Limited (Proxous) has been issued with a formal warning after the ACMA found it provided gaming software used by 13 online casinos illegally offering services to Australians.
An investigation found that by sub-licensing Realtime Gaming (RTG) branded software products used by these casinos, Proxous was knowingly involved in the provision of prohibited interactive gambling services to Australians in breach of the Interactive Gambling Act 2001.
The illegal services using Proxous licensed software are Fair Go Casino, Two Up Casino, Free Spin, BoVegas, Uptown Pokies, Uptown Aces, Red Dog Casino, Slots Empire, Cherry Gold Casino, Play Croco, Aussie Play, Ozwin Casino and Reels Of Joy.
Each of these services rely on RTG branded software products to deliver their online casino-style services, including to Australian-based customers, and all have been found by previous ACMA investigations to be illegal operations in Australia. The ACMA has taken action to block these services.
This is the first time the ACMA has taken action against a company for its involvement in an illegal gambling operation through supplying software. Since the ACMA started enforcing new illegal offshore gambling rules in 2017, more than 170 of these services have pulled out of the Australian market.
IBAS Unveils New Plans to Become the First Gambling Ombudsman
The Independent Betting Adjudication Service (IBAS) has unveiled plans to become the new Gambling Ombudsman.
IBAS believes the long-awaited UK Government White Paper will call for the creation of a new Ombudsman, once released. IBAS claims it is the perfect candidate for the role, aiming to protect consumers from gambling harm while raising industry standards across the board.
The body already offers an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) service – as opposed to the Gambling Commission, which is the official route for resolving issues.
Per its bid to become the UK’s first Gambling Ombudsman, IBAS has outlined its aims and goals should it assume the position.
IBAS has called for its Ombudsman governance framework setting to be produced outside its remit; new and compulsory funding from the industry to ensure impartiality remains central to all gambling disputes; and a Fair Play Code – outlining the criteria for deciding complaints, including fairness terms & conditions for harmful gambling complaints.
“IBAS’s experience, expertise and commitment to independent decisions are unparalleled – having resolved over 85,000 gambling disputes. I welcome the creation of a new Ombudsman, but for this to work it needs to be run by an organisation that understands the sector and has a track record of helping and protecting consumers. An Ombudsman with additional resources, built on the foundations of IBAS is best placed to hit the ground running, protecting consumers, and raising industry standards through fair, consistent decision making and constructive dispute avoidance feedback,” Richard Hayler, Managing Director of IBAS, said.
“It’s an exciting time for the gambling industry. There is a real opportunity to enhance the service offered to gambling customers through a new Ombudsman. IBAS has been committed to providing an accessible, fair, and independent service to all gambling consumers. Our plan for a Gambling Ombudsman would make sure consumers are protected and avoid the backlog of complaints. On top of this, this plan provides a solution that works for Government, the Regulator, and the industry,” Andrew Fraser, Chairman of IBAS, said.
