At SKS365 we are committed to being leaders in Legal, Compliance and AML to further ensure a safe, fair and open environment for our customers, therefore the Company is proud to announce that its Legal, Compliance and AML infrastructure grows stronger with the adoption of a state-of-the-art organisational model pursuant to law 231/2001. The Company announces the establishment of a Supervisory Body and the appointment of four new senior members with proven experience in the legal, academic and military sectors.

The Supervisory Body will work alongside the Legal, Compliance and AML Department and will be entrusted with independent control, audit and risk management tasks across the Company.

SKS365 – international gaming and betting operator with a leading market share in Italy through the Planetwin365 brand – carefully selected the following four professionals that will comprise the Supervisory Body:

Massimo Ignesti (Chairman), an international expert on security and terrorism financing; Brigadier General (retired) of the Carabinieri Corps. General Ignesti comes with a background as commanding officer of domestic and overseas investigative units; senior intelligence officer; as well as Corporate Security Manager at Eni;

Prof. Avv. Ranieri Razzante (Deputy Chairman), a foremost legal scholar; Chair in Anti-crime Legislation at the University of Bologna; Director of the Center for Research on Security and Terrorism; President of the Italian Association of Anti-Money Laundering and Special Adviser to the Parliamentary Anti-Mafia Commission;
Avv. Antonio Conte, a leading barrister; Past President of the Bar Council of Rome;

Avv. Stefano Mele, a cybersecurity expert; President of the Cyber Security Commission of the Italian Atlantic Committee; President of the Cybersecurity Working Group of the American Chamber of Commerce in Italy (AmCham). Avv. Mele has been designated a “Key Opinion Leader for Cyberspace Security” by Born as well as one of the “20 best Cyber Policy Experts in the world” by Forbes Magazine.

The Legal & Compliance department has selected four profiles with diversified and complementary skills. The Supervisory Body will be pivotal to SKS’s legal, compliance and AML systems. In addition to the usual audit tasks, the Supervisory Body will oversee the security of the IT networks and of the financial flows, the risk management function and will work alongside the AML/MLRO to further develop the Company’s internal control systems to prevent potential offenses within our sector, constantly exposed to risks.

SKS365’s Country Manager, Francesco Gaziano, quipped: “We continue to attract high-profile, leading professionals and recognised experts. Our talent pool is becoming a distinctive competitive advantage. We keep investing in compliance, risk management and internal controls. In fact, we believe that compliance is a competitive lever and creates value by improving reputation, enhancing transparency, and reducing operational risk for the benefit of our customers and employees. For SKS365 it is essential that we offer to our customers a safe, fair and open environment where they can enjoy our entertaining product and share our passion for sports”. “SKS365 – he highlights – has been executing a spectacular turnaround. The new management is serious about getting without any exception. I tell you, we are building the absolute best-in-class in the industry”.

Poland’s Ministry of Finance has informed about an amendment to the regulation regarding lottery devices, gaming devices and slot machines, information security.

The Minister of Finance, Investment and Development has signed an ordinance amending the ordinance on lottery devices, gaming devices and slot machines, securing information regarding the organised lottery and obtaining, calculating and paying out winnings.

Pursuant to the provisions of the Gambling Act, only the minister competent for public finances decides whether playing on a given device is a game on slot machines within the meaning of the Gambling Act.

The opinion of the testing entity is only an attachment to the application for issuing the decision. This opinion must contain information that it serves only to issue a decision by the minister competent for public finance.

Thus, the opinion of the testing entity does not state the gambling or non-gambling nature of a given game and cannot be treated as a settlement in this respect.

DC Judge Refuses to Halt DC Lottery’s Controversial Deal with Intralot

DC Superior Court Judge John Campbell has refused to halt the DC Lottery’s controversial deal with tech provider Intralot.

Last month, a different DC judge issued a temporary restraining order on Intralot’s deal based on a request by DC resident Dylan Carragher, a software developer who filed a lawsuit to force DC to hold a competitive tender for the betting contract.

Judge Campbell justified his refusal to honour Carragher’s injunction request by saying he did not think Carragher’s lawsuit will succeed. Campbell added that “it clearly and unquestionably was within the Council’s authority” to waive the competitive bidding requirement. Carragher has already indicated that he will appeal Campbell’s ruling, so the action now shifts to the DC Court of Appeals.

Creative development studio BF Games has been awarded a Romanian supplier licence, enabling it to provide its portfolio to the country’s online operators for the first time, following a successful period of offering its land-based slot machines in the country.

Licensed online operators across Romania can now enjoy full access to BF Games’ slot collection, including new titles such as Book of Goods and Ramses Rising, as well as popular classics Bonnie & Clyde, Crystal Mania and Stunning Hot.

BF Games’ own Remote Gaming Server distributes content directly to operators, ensuring seamless integration and speed to market.

Both suppliers and operators are required to obtain a licence in Romania, where online gambling has been legal since 2016. BF Games’ Class II licence issued by the Romanian gambling regulator (ONJN) enables it to sign strategic partnership with certified operators and supply its content to Romanian players.

BF Games has already seen a lot of interest from licensees in the market and is expected to announce partnership deals shortly.

The studio already holds online licences in Malta, the UK and Latvia, as well as a land-based gaming permit in Montenegro.

Piotr Szpoton, CEO at BF Games, said: “We are always looking to extend our reach and as Romania is a mature market, obtaining a new licence here demonstrates our confidence in the market as well as our products.

“Three years ago, we entered the Romanian land-based market offering our slot-machines through and exclusive partnership, and after seeing the positive results and the interests in our offering, we decided to enter the online vertical as well.”
