The Gigamedia subsidiary Everest Gaming, which owns Everest Poker and the Everest online casino, has been successful in obtaining an online gambling licence from the Malta jurisdiction, a white-listed authority in terms of UK advertising.
 
"After completing the stringent application process and meeting the requirements set by the Maltese government, Everest Gaming Limited has been fully recognized as a secure and reliable online gaming destination for Europeans meeting all legal requirements to operate in Europe," a company spokesman said this week.
 
Everest Gaming can boast over a decade of experience in the industry, and claims to be the first company to offer truly localised online casino and poker experiences to Europeans. Its multilingual casino platforms have been available since 1997 and its European Poker room Everest Poker has been available in over 10 different languages since 2004.
