Once upon a time there were three handsome and humble boys sitting around a table discussing online gaming and the lack of entertainment they experienced being offered. How hard could it be to offer something players would consider exciting, smart and professional with the players best at heart…

Fast forward 10 years and you find a massive online gaming industry stretching across and far beyond Europe filled with generic operators and a very few well established brands with true uniqueness and style. In this small group, you find a well-known dapper gentleman in Green. A character defined by his drive to entertain but still the same focus to be responsible and fair…
