Spelinspektionen Blocks Relaunch of Ninja Casino in Sweden

Swedish gambling regulator Spelinspektionen has blocked the relaunch of Ninja Casino in Sweden.

An application was submitted to Spelinspektionen following a license transfer by the owners of Ninja Casino to another company, who already had a license granted.

However, following “serious violations” of gambling laws in Sweden, the regulator deemed it “highly inappropriate” that such re-launch attempt had taken place between Global Gaming and Viral Interactive.

“[It was] highly inappropriate that Viral Interactive Ltd has chosen a collaboration involving two players who have committed serious violations,” Spelinspektionen said.

Following the rejection, the gambling authority stated that Viral Interactive and Global Gaming’s running of Ninja Casino did not meet gaming operation requirements to ensure “controlled and security assured forms.”

“It is noteworthy that the Swedish Gambling Authority, after almost five months of deliberation, chooses to reject Viral Interactive’s application to add Ninjacasino.se. Viral Interactive cannot in any way be regarded as a party in the legal procedure currently in place between SafeEnt and the Swedish Gambling Authority and cannot be held responsible for any marketing previously conducted by Elec Games,” Tobias Fagerlund of Global Gaming said.

“It is obvious to me that there is a lot of prestige in the Swedish Gambling Authority’s decision and that the Swedish Gambling Authority continues to make questionable decisions which in our opinion lack clear support in the legislation,” Tobias Fagerlund added.

Two Members of Bulgaria’s Gambling Commission Face Organised Crime Charges
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

A current and former member of Bulgaria’s Gambling Commission have been charged with involvement in an organised crime group allegedly headed by Vassil Bozhkov.

Plamen Georgiev was a member of the commission at the time that it was headed by Ognemir Mitev, who is reported to be among those taken into custody in a succession of prosecutors’ raids on the commission. Todor Markov has headed the control activities department since 2019.

The Specialised Criminal Court declined an application by prosecutors to remand Georgiev and Markov in custody, and ordered them into house arrest. The court ordered Georgiev and Markov not to contact officials at the Gambling Commission so as not to influence the investigation.

Reports quoted the prosecutor’s office as saying that, including Bozhkov, eight people had been the subject of criminal charges so far. Twenty-five witnesses have been questioned in the investigation into Bozhkov’s alleged organised crime group.
