There are a number of gaming hubs in the world, where gaming companies flock to set up shop, either for licensing, tax, or just presence, and the British overseas territory of Gibraltar is one. Plenty of Netent casinos have some or all operations over there such as Bet365 and Betfair. Now Boylesports, who also runs Netent casino site Boylegames, will be setting up there too.
Gibraltar is one of the top licensing bodies in the EU, offering remote gaming licenses to online casinos who meet their strict, but fair, regulations ensuring the casino is safe and reliable for players to register their data and use their hard earned money playing on.
As well as the move, and maybe because of it, chief marketing officer James Arnold will be stepping down from his post, which he has been in since 2013. Around 20 people will be stationed in the new Gibraltar premises, with 15 roles from the UK and Ireland being relocated. Staff were given the choice to relocate or be replaced, and it seems that James Arnold decided against the move.
Moves like this are fairly common, as we mentioned in September Bet365 have increased their presence in Gibraltar, whereas Betclic confirmed they will be leaving and focusing on their operations in another gaming hub, the mediterranean island of Malta.
Whatever happens next, I am sure that Arnolds future will be bright, as will Boylegames, on the sunny island of Gib!
