Sega Gets Into Online Gaming
October 14, 2021

Sega, the huge Japanese corporation behind such classic games as Sonic The Hedgehog and The House Of The Dead, has apparently decided to enter the online gaming market, having recently received a full interactive online gambling license from the Alderney Gambling Control Commission.

With this license SegaGames Ltd, in conjunction with Playtech, plans to open not only an online real money casino but also a Sega poker room, utilizing their huge SegaPass hub to power the new sites.

Sega chose to apply for their license in Alderney, according to an official spokesman because "the Alderney Gambling Control Commission provides the most comprehensive gaming regulations with the strictest requirements," which seems to indicate they will be heading into this new venture with an eye primarily on protecting their customers.  Most would argue this is a very good, if very preliminary sign, and although receiving the license is just one of many steps before "SegaPoker" is up on running, it seems now to be just a matter of time before we may find ourselves check-raising a two-tailed fox, in the hopes of driving two zombies and a virtual fighter, out of the pot.
