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.

Local authorities in Bratislava have introduced new restrictions on gambling in the Slovak capital. Changes to the National Gambling Act which came into force earlier this year have allowed municipalities to take action against the dangerous vice.

As per the latest restrictions, gambling halls can no longer operate within 200 meters of schools or other educational facilities, institutions servicing children and youth and treatment centres for non-substance addictions.

Bingo, board games, gambling machines, video game terminals, technical equipment operated directly by players, or other technical equipment used for gambling will be completely banned from use on certain dates – most notably during national holidays.

Currently, a petition for a complete ban on gambling in Bratislava is underway and it has already gathered over 100,000 signatures. In September, Matúš Vallo, mayor of the Slovak capital announced the creation of a new working group that will be communicating with citizens and civil association and trying to answer their concerns.

Australia’s telecom watchdog is going to block access to illegal gambling websites hosted offshore. The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) will investigate suspect sites and, if unable to take enforcement action, order internet providers to block them.

The chair of ACMA, Nerida O’Loughlin, said the new laws were a valuable additional weapon against illegal online gambling.

“There is little to no recourse for consumers engaging with these unscrupulous operators,” O’Loughlin said.

She said 65 illegal companies had left Australia since ACMA began enforcing new rules against offshore sites in 2017.

The communications minister, Paul Fletcher, said the sites accounted for about $100m in lost tax revenue each year.

“Too often these offshore operators are defrauding Australians and their websites typically provide very few, if any, harm-minimisation controls,” Fletcher said.

The Illinois Gaming Board has granted the state’s first land-based casino license to Rivers Casino.

Granted under the sweeping expansion of the state’s gaming sector that was signed into law in June, the new license enables operator Rush Street Gaming to move its gambling operation beyond the shallow pool of water it built to qualify as a riverboat. Rivers Casino opened in 2011 under the provisions of the Riverboat Gambling Act of 1990.

Rush Street plans to invest $150 million to expand the casino and increase the number of gaming positions to 2000.
