In a strategic move that’s causing waves across both the entertainment and business worlds, the UAE has unveiled its shiny new ace: The General Commercial Gaming Regulatory Authority (GCGRA). This fresh-out-of-the-box entity is set to architect a world-class blueprint for national lottery and commercial gaming endeavors.
Industry insiders are buzzing about the GCGRA’s commitment to global excellence, and it’s clear why. At the helm is none other than the globally-renowned regulator, Kevin Mullally. With a career spanning three decades in the gaming regulation landscape, Mullally’s stepping up as the GCGRA’s inaugural CEO. “I’m eager to craft a resilient and cutting-edge regulatory structure for the UAE’s dynamic gaming sector,” remarked the ecstatic CEO.
Ensuring that the GCGRA is locked, loaded, and laser-focused, a brigade of international maestros, boasting rich industry insights, are joining the ranks. Leading this elite squad is board chairman and industry titan, Jim Murren. He warmly welcomes Mullally, stating, “Kevin’s unparalleled expertise is just the ticket for devising a regulatory framework tailor-made for the UAE.”
In essence, the GCGRA is more than just a regulatory body. It’s a pledge to establish a gaming ecosystem that’s socially conscious, meticulously regulated, and compliant with the gold standards. Beyond just setting the rules of the game, this authority is poised to stimulate the UAE’s economic vitality in the commercial gaming arena, all the while ensuring every player’s move is above board.
