B2B iGaming supplier EveryMatrix has obtained Completed Application status issued by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE).

To successfully operate in the U.S., EveryMatrix will further require customer integration approval as part of the transactional waiver process to receive the green light to ‘Go Live’. By receiving Completed Application status from the DGE, EveryMatrix has provided all required application information on the company and its key officials in line with New Jersey’s law and iGaming standards.

Since Garden State’s gaming regulation came into effect in 2014, the industry has grown to a whopping $6 Billion in 2020.

Erik Nyman, President Americas at EveryMatrix, says: “I am very pleased that DGE has accepted as complete the application filings of the EveryMatrix Group of companies. Certainly, this is an important milestone for us and puts us on the verge of making our world-class platform and services available to licensed operators in the U.S. market.

“Since New Jersey regulated online gaming in 2014, their framework has played an important role for other states in their process to regulate and implement online gaming. We are very excited to soon be live in New Jersey while we are engaging in several license processes across the U.S.”

As a leading B2B provider of turnkey platform, casino, and sportsbook, EveryMatrix’s expansion plans gained shape in August 2020 with the opening of EveryMatrix Americas branch. To date, the company is on the fast track of securing a full operating license in New Jersey and is pursuing licensing in several other U.S. states.

EveryMatrix is making strides in the U.S., key milestone including the opening of its first U.S. based office in Miami, Florida, and the newly inked partnership with iDevelopment and Economic Association (iDEA) to make new ties to the U.S. iGaming industry.

Online gaming operator Betway has been fined £408,915 by the UK Gambling Commission for marketing on the children’s pages of West Ham United Football Club’s website.

Commission enquiries revealed that between 14 April 2020 and 6 November 2021 the operator’s gambling logo, which linked to its website, was displayed on a webpage offering the opportunity to print a teddy bear for children to colour in.

Enquiries also revealed a logo with a link to the operator’s webpage featured on the “Young Hammers at Home” webpage between 24 October 2021 and 15 November 2021.

Both advertisements breached Commission rules stating gambling advertising must be socially responsible.

Leanne Oxley, Gambling Commission Director of Enforcement, said: “Protecting children from gambling harm is at the heart of what we do.

“Although there is no suggestion that the operator was deliberately targeting children, or that children had been allowed to gamble, we take the breach of any rules aimed at protecting children extremely seriously.

“We note the remedial actions since taken by licensee but advise all operators to learn from this case and ensure that they take responsibility and have the correct processes in place so that websites directed at children do not include advertisements for gambling.”

Twitch’s statement banning remote licensed gambling sites from being streamed has made waves across the industry today. At HappyHour, we’ve long anticipated such news and what is certain is that gambling on mainstream media platforms will be volatile. We believe that the industry itself needs to take control of the space and provide a healthy, sustainable and highly engaging offer.

We foresee community and social experiences will be the future of online casino, which is why we invested heavily into Livespins.

Livespins gives the operators themselves the power to host a fully certified turnkey streaming platform on their website with the rigor and player protection lacking on mainstream media. Livespins offers players the ability to view and play the games they love, with reliable idols, through the account and balance they have created – where age checks, responsible gambling tools, and general safe play policies and processes are already in place.

Swedish Gambling Regulator Orders Unlicensed Casineia to Exit Market

Casineia operator Ease Gaming NV has been banned from offering games of chance in Sweden following a decision by Swedish gambling regulator Spelinspektionen.

Casineia is an online casino operated by Ease Gaming, which is based in Curaçao. The operator does not have a Swedish licence and so, according to Sweden’s 2019 Gambling Act, is ineligible to operate in the Nordic country. Despite this, an investigation by Spelinspektionen found that the site was available to and aimed at Swedish consumers.

Ease Gaming will also be prohibited from offering gambling activities in the country on its other websites: Slothive, Gamblii and Jinxcasino.

Spelinspektionen said: “The Gambling Act applies to games provided in Sweden, with specifically stated exceptions. It is a prohibitive legislation that is based on the principle that everyone who acts on the Swedish gaming market must have a licence. It is therefore not permitted to provide games without a licence when one is required.

“The purpose of the new regulation is for gambling to be channeled to offers from responsible, reliable and controllable players. The regulation is based on the fact that everyone who acts on the Swedish gambling market must have a Swedish gambling licence and that other actors without a licence must be shut out.

“Spelinspektionen considers that, with regard to consumer protection and to guarantee gaming safety, it is important that the decision is complied with immediately.”
