SafeEnt will appeal the decision from Swedish gaming regulators Spelinspektionen
Spelinspektionen, the Swedish gaming regulators have revoked SafeEnt’s Swedish licence for commercial online gambling and betting. The Global Gaming subsidiary, which runs the company’s flagship online casino brand, Ninja Casino, will appeal the decision.
The choice to appeal the decision was described by Global Gaming’s acting CEO Tobias Fagerlund as odd and that it would cause the company ‘significant damage’. In a press release on their website, Global Gaming have said that they are confident that the actions taken in response to shortcomings in their operations had addressed the issues properly and that they were in compliance with new Swedish gaming regulations.
Fagerlund said: “The information from the Gaming Authority came unexpected due to the company being under the impression that we comply with the regulations which the new legislation has set on gaming operators in Sweden. That they come up with this decision is odd.
“It is the company’s and the legal advisors’ impression that all demands to hold a licence are complied with. The company’s legal team is under the firm impression that the Gaming Authority’s decision lacks support in Gaming Law and therefore the decision will be appealed.”
The decision, which came into immediate effect this week, has seen the company discontinue its operations in the country.
