Play’n GO Show Certified Excellence!
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Play’n GO are consolidating their reputation as the supplier of choice for regulated markets, as they announce their most recent certifications and their plans for new markets.

 

Already offering content in over 15 regulated jurisdictions globally, this year has seen them move into Sweden, and prepare to enter Portugal, two growing markets in the industry.

While Portugal saw record growth in its land-based casino sector in 2018; Sweden’s new regulations have opened up the casino market and Play’n GO were one of the first to take advantage of the new regulations, signing landmark deals with prominent Swedish partners including ATG and Svenska Spel.

The biggest boost to their reputation is the fact they have chosen to make their entire portfolio compliant in the regions they operate in. Rather than selecting some games for each jurisdiction, as is the current norm, Play’n GO have made sure that any operators they partner with have as much of their innovative portfolio available to them as possible. This gives their operators more freedom of choice and a higher quality selection of games for their players.

New certifications that they have implemented include the addition of in-game progressive jackpots in Italy; the offering of video bingo, video poker and a selection of slot and table games in Spain; Nearly 70 additional slot titles available in the Czech Republic and the offering of table games in Colombia.

Play’n GO continue to be at the forefront of the industry in regards to both content quality and compliance controls. Head of Compliance Sissel Weitzhandler spoke about Play’n GO’s stance on the issue:

We are committed to being the strongest supplier in regulated markets. This approach is an integral part of our products and operations. We continuously striveto be even better at what we do not only seeing that our products adhere to the strictest standards while providing a great entertainment experience.

We have a strong presence in regulated markets, and it’s growing continuously. Our goal is to expand even further in Europe and increase our presence in Latin America. Wherever we go, our partners can be certain to be fully compliant in those markets.”

Belarus has given permission to gambling operators for legally registering an online casino, if appropriate license has been obtained. Legislation currently does not prohibit Belarusians from online gambling on overseas websites. Belarusians also have access to newsletters and information about online casinos.

According to Marina Nevinkaya, the head of gambling department at Belarus’ Ministry of Taxes and Duties, when the transition period ends, restrictions will appear in this field.

“Publishing gambling content aimed at promotion and organising unlicensed online gaming will be illegal beginning with 1 April 2021. Two years after the entry into force of the basic provisions of the decree number 305, access to the websites containing such information, will be limited,” the representative of the Ministry said.

The gambling market of Belarus remains stable. According to the recent data, 106 companies hold gambling business, 94 license holders actually operate. There are 391 gambling establishments in Belarus, including 27 casinos, 176 gaming machine halls and 188 betting offices.

Psyonix, an American video game developer based in San Diego, has disabled loot boxes in its arena soccer racing game Rocket League for players in the Netherlands and Belgium due to government regulations.

The Dutch Games of Chance authority, or Kansspelautoriteit, has investigated several popular games containing loot boxes in 2018 and considered many of these to be illegal. The titles investigated include PUBG, CSGO, FIFA 18, Dota 2, and Rocket League.

When random loot box content is tradable, there is almost always a certain monetary value associated with that content. This is why these countries consider paid loot boxes with random content gambling.

Aside from Rocket League and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, loot boxes were also disabled in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2 within the same regions in 2018.
