GeoComply USA obtained its Delaware Gaming License and can now be able to provide geo-location services to Delaware operators. Sainsbury’s testimony took place before gambling news reps, a few hours prior to the hearing of the Restoration of America’s Wire Act (RAWA) bill.

This bill is an anti-iGaming proposal introduced by Congressman Jason Chaffetz and backed by Sheldon Adelson, a staunch opposer of online gambling in the US. Sainsbury spoke about the positive impact of geo-location which guarantees a safe and secure online gaming environment in regulated territories.

Sainsbury said that “We intend to make sure players’ voices are heard and that they are not silenced by opponents of online poker in the United States. This demonstration will help debunk some damaging and often unfounded claims propagated by these opponents. We’re thrilled to receive our license in Delaware and have the ability to offer Delaware operators our accurate, user-friendly and secure geo-location solutions“.
