White Hat Gaming Limited Information
Who are White Hat Gaming Limited?
White Hat Gaming Limited is one of a cluster of prominent casino network companies you’ll find based in the island nation of Malta. You’ll specifically find the headquarters of White Hat Gaming Limited in Mosta, which might have more iGaming companies packed into it than any other city in the world. The reason that so many casino network companies either set up shop or move sticks to Malta is no secret – it’s because it’s far cheaper to run a casino network company in Malta than it is in, for example, the UK. It’s all legal and above board, and there’s nothing untoward about it. It can even be helpful for the companies concerned; White Hat Gaming Limited holds a Malta Gaming Authority licence as well as a UK Gambling Commission licence, and that probably wouldn’t be possible if the company was UK-based.
As an operator, White Hat Gaming Limited has been actively involved in iGaming since it was set up in 2012. There are just under thirty active casinos and betting sites attached to the White Hat Gaming Limited name, and although a clutch of them are owned in their entirety by the operator, well over half are white-label casino sites designed by White Hat Gaming but then fully or partially handed over to somebody else to operate while White Hat Gaming handles back-end support. That white-label approach is typical of many large casino network companies, and in the case of White Hat Gaming Limited, it’s the company’s main order of business.
White Hat Gaming as a White Label Operator
Although White Hat Gaming has a website, the website is designed more for new or existing white-label casino customers than it is for the many thousands of people who play at the casinos on its platform every day. That means a lot of the real estate on the casino’s homepage is given over to promoting the benefits and features of its white-label services. They include bespoke payment processing tools that White Hat Gaming created in-house, a scaleable platform, full regulatory support, customer services, CRM management, CRM marketing, and far more. It’s clear from the sheer number of options that White Hat Gaming Limited offers that white-label customers don’t have to get involved in running the casinos they pay for if they don’t want to; for the right price, they can leave it all in the hands of White Hat Gaming.
Some of you might be asking why White Hat Gaming Limited doesn’t have more white-label casino customers if it’s so great at making white-label casinos. There are, after all, casino operators out there that have fifty or more white-label casinos on their books. If we can take White Hat Gaming at its word based on the things that it says on its website, it’s because the company doesn’t say “yes” to every potential customer that approaches it. It selects its chosen partners carefully on the basis that it believes it can develop a long-term relationship with them. It could have more customers if it wanted to – it just turns away those it doesn’t believe are suitable. With White Hat Gaming, the philosophy is one of quality over quantity.
White Hat Gaming Limited in Numbers
Not every casino network company publishes statistics that give you the inside track on the scope and scale of its operations. The fact that White Hat Gaming does this suggests that it’s very confident in its standing within the industry. There’s a section about three-quarters of the way down the homepage of the company’s website that deals with numbers, and the first number it presents you with is five. That’s the number of offices that White Hat Gaming Limited operates around the globe. We already know that one of those offices is in Malta, which remains the base of the company’s operations. There’s also an office in Gibraltar. A pairing of offices in Malta and Gibraltar is fairly common in iGaming companies that operate across Europe.
The third of White Hat Gaming Limited’s offices is in London, which was opened after the company acquired its first UK Gambling Commission licence. Again, that’s not an unusual place for a casino network company to have an office. The remaining two locations, however, are a little more unusual. One of them is in Cape Town, South Africa. The South African online gambling market isn’t enormous, but it’s growing, and White Hat Gaming presumably sees opportunities there as it continues to grow. The final office is in Chicago, Illinois, USA, and the logic behind that is harder to understand. Online gambling and online casinos remain largely illegal in the USA, and white the sports betting market is slowly opening up, White Hat Gaming Limited isn’t particularly well-known for being active in sports betting markets. Perhaps it plans on being more active in that sphere in years to come – or perhaps it has reason to believe things are going to change soon in America when it comes to online casinos.
Between these offices, the company employs around six hundred people. They’re tasked with keeping all of its casinos up and running, which involves working with more than 120 carefully chosen content providers to ensure that the casinos have all the latest games. The last time anyone checked, the total number of casino games available to White Hat Gaming was more than three thousand.
White Hat Gaming Limited and the UKGC
We’ve already said that White Hat Gaming Limited has a valid UK Gambling Commission licence, but here are the specifics. The licence currently held by the operator is number 52894 and has been in force since 2018. In January 2021, White Hat Gaming Limited got a black mark against its name when a UK Gambling Commission investigation identified failings in the company’s handling of seven customer accounts, including failing to adequately manage players who were at increased risk of problem gambling or money laundering. The UKGC noted that the operator cooperated throughout the investigation, which might be why it escaped a formal financial penalty. Instead, it made a payment of £1.33m to the National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms.
The Top White Hat Gaming Limited Casinos
White Hat Gaming Limited doesn’t have a flagship casino brand in the traditional sense of the word, but it does have a most-popular casino brand – and that most-popular casino brand is Playzee, with its memorable mad professor theme and its long-running series of adverts. This casino is a little zany, and it’s one to avoid if you’re not a fan of constant puns, but it offers a fair combination of great games and imaginative rewards.
Most of the White Hat Gaming Limited casinos – or the best of them, at least, offer loyalty points to their players in the hope of keeping them interested as they play. New arrivals at Playzee get five hundred of those points to get the ball rolling, along with a matched deposit bonus worth up to £300 plus one hundred free spins. The wagering requirements associated with the promotion are okay, which makes this a fairly generous promotion. Playzee invites players both old and new to “enjoy zee games,” and there’s no reason why anyone shouldn’t. It’s a great online casino.
The Las Vegas theme has been more than done to death. There must be two hundred or more online casinos using this theme in the UK market alone and thousands more around the world. It takes a truly special casino site to stand out among such an enormous crowd, but Dream Vegas has just enough about itself to manage it. It’s a fantastic-looking site with an animated background, super-sharp images of some of Sin City’s most famous landmarks, and a group of sharp-suited, well-dressed people to greet you on the homepage and welcome you to the casino.
In both form and function, the welcome promotion at Dream Vegas is similar to the welcome bonus at Playzee, which confirms the status of Dream Vegas as one of the upper-tier White Hat Gaming Limited casinos. It could perhaps focus more on its catalogue of live dealer games than it does, as live dealer games suit the casino’s theme far better, but it’s still a potent casino with a slick theme and plenty to like about it. Be wary of loading the Dream Vegas if you’re on a limited data plan, though – it can be greedy on your bandwidth.
The era of the superhero may well be approaching its end. It passed the point of saturation a very long time ago, but the genre managed to maintain its popularity thanks to the enormous success of Marvel’s “Avengers” series of movies. They, too, are over now, and there are signs that superheroes are losing their once-indomitable box office appeal. What that means for superhero-themed casino sites like Captain Spins remains to be seen, but for now, Captain Spins is still one of the best-performing casinos on the White Hat Gaming Limited platform.
Captain Spins hasn’t exactly been subtle about where it took its inspiration from. There’s a 3D-rendered character on the homepage which looks exactly like Chris Evans playing Captain America for Marvel. He isn’t Captain America, of course – he’s Captain Spins – but the resemblance is undeniable. His role on the homepage is to attract your attention to the Captain Spins welcome promotion, which is worth a potential 520 free spins. That’s an enormous number, and the associated wagering requirement of x35 means you have a fair chance of getting your winnings back out of the promotion if you choose to accept it. If you can’t get any money out of 520 spins, luck may have deserved you permanently.
Grand Ivy (or, to give this iGaming site its more formal title, The Grand Ivy Casino) is a spectacularly beautiful casino website based on a very simple premise; it’s mocked up to look like the digital presence of a real-life casino inside an equally real-life luxury hotel. You know the sort of hotel we’re talking about; the floors are marble, the staircase is spectacular, even the most basic of fixtures and fitting look like they cost thousands of pounds, and the atmosphere is one of opulence. It isn’t an especially original idea for a casino site, but like Dream Vegas, it manages to elevate itself above the average for casino sites of this kind through the sheer quality of the presentation.
Grand Ivy makes the curious choice to try to market itself as “different” because it features a suite of live dealer games from Evolution Gaming. While it’s true that the Evolution suite is present at the casino, and the games are of superbly high quality, you’ll find those same games at quite a few of the other White Hat Gaming Limited casino sites. That’s not a bad thing – it just means that Grand Ivy isn’t quite as unique as it makes itself out to be.
You’ll either recognise the branding of Slotnite immediately, or you won’t recognise it at all. Whether you do or you don’t might depend quite heavily on your age and whether or not you often play video games. Everything at Slotnite in terms of the casino’s theme is derived from the wildly popular Fortnite video game, which has been the top shoot-em-up title in the world for the past five years. Styling a casino after a video game that’s so popular with children and teenagers is a questionable move for a casino, and it’s a surprise that regulators haven’t taken a dim view of it, but it’s done wonders for Slotnite’s popularity.
Slotnite is, as you’d expect from the name, an iGaming site that primarily interests itself with online slots. There are more than two thousand of them for players to choose from at the casino, which means the portfolio is around one thousand titles short of the maximum number available on the White Hat Gaming Limited platform. The discrepancy is largely down to the reduced number of live casino games, although you’ll still find a fair few live game shows in the Slotnite collection.
