BF Games awarded Malta licence
Slots provider expands footprint with new B2B licence
Creative game development studio BeeFee has been awarded a B2B licence by the MGA which will allow it to offer its BF Games products to Malta-licensed operators for the first time.
BeeFee Games’ comprehensive portfolio, including newly-launched Lucky Symbols and popular Crystal Mania and Hot Classic, will now be made available to all operators in one of gaming’s most significant jurisdictions.
BeeFee’s own Remote Gaming Server will allow content to be distributed directly to operators, ensuring ease of integration and speed to market.
Wiktor Grabarczyk, Head of Legal at BeeFee, said: “Malta is the key region in which BeeFee wishes to advance and develop.
“It is exciting to now be licensed there as the country has established itself as a successful iGaming hub. The licence granted by the Malta Gambling Authority acknowledges the high level of quality of our products. Now, with a range of new opportunities, we can embark on further expansion.”
The new licence adds to BeeFee’s existing ones in the UK, Latvia and Montenegro.
The BeeFee team will be exhibiting at ICE London for the third time between 5th and 7th of February and will be showcasing their games to visitors at stand S3-248.

Georgia Bans 1.45 Million People from Gambling
A new decree approved last year has banned well over a million people from participating in gambling in Georgia. The law, which follows the introduction of new online casino restrictions, bans under 25s, public employees, the socially vulnerable and those blacklisted by courts from gambling.
Minister of finance Lasha Khutsishvili said 1.45 million citizens are now banned from gambling, including people who are self-excluding. The new law came into effect this month after being approved by prime minister Irakli Garibashvili last year.
Last month, Garibashvili approved another batch of restrictions to tighten the country’s gambling laws. One of the measures will be to ring-fence online casino licences so they can be held only by land-based casinos based in Georgia.
That would make Adjara Group, Crystalbet and Iveria the only operators that can hold online casino licences. However, in addition, the government plans to offer a licence for exclusive rights to operate online casino for a fee of €1.6m.
Last year, the government presented plans to introduce separate gaming licences for specific verticals so that operators would no longer be able to expand into different verticals with no need for an additional permit. The annual permit fees for each of the business types (online casino, slots and betting) were to be set at €35,580.
All gambling advertising on TV, websites and public places has also been banned, and gambling taxes have been raised. Another batch of measures that are expected to be imposed includes a ban on casinos on ships.
The government says the measures are designed to bring the country in line with the EU expectations as it seeks to enter the bloq, although there is no EU ban on gambling advertising or prohibiting certain people from participating.
Mindway AI Collaborates With the Hellenic Gaming Commission to Ensure Player Protection
The aim of the cooperation between Mindway AI and the Hellenic Gaming Commission is to enhance player protection in the Greek gambling industry. The two parties seek to elaborate on the risk assessment methodology applied to assess whether a player is about to develop problem gambling behavior.
Mindway AI has signed a memorandum of cooperation with the Hellenic Gaming Commission on issues related to responsible gambling, the protection of players and gambling addiction prevention.
“We are pleased that the Hellenic Gaming Commission has shown us the trust to collaborate with us utilizing our in-depth scientific expertise and potentially our award-winning player protection software built on a unique combination of neuroscience, AI, and human psychologists’ assessments,” the Chief Executive Officer for Mindway AI, Rasmus Kjaergaard, said.
Originally, Mindway AI’s player protection software was developed to be implemented by operators as an early detector of problematic gambling behavior but we have found that it might be used across an entire market as well.
“The idea of using our expertise and maybe our software across a full market gambling jurisdiction in Greece is exciting and innovative. Together with Hellenic Gambling Commission, we intend to co-create the needed adjustments to adapt to the extra requirements that may occur when this new approach can cover a whole market and not solely individual operators,” Kjaergaard said.
Within the framework of their collaboration, the two parties shall evaluate the use of AI software in combination with neuroscientific insights and expert assessments to identify at-risk gambling behavior. The Hellenic Gaming Commission will then seek to take initiatives and proper measures and proceed with interventions, both at the regulatory and supervisory-audit levels, to handle at-risk gambling behavior and minimize the harm related to gambling addiction.
