Swintt games are now available in the regulated market of Sweden following a successful certification process to meet the standards of The Swedish Gambling Authority

Swintt, the developer and distributor of premium casino and live dealer content, has been given the green light to launch its games to operators and players in the Swedish market after being certified and approved by the Swedish Gambling Authority (Spelinspektionen).

The developer is focused on delivering its content to operators in regulated markets around the world and its full suite of games has already been certified by the Malta Gaming Authority with plans to secure more permits over the coming months.

One of the first titles to be certified and launched in Sweden will be Lone Rider XtraWaysTM, which will see Swintt debut its innovative XtraWaysTM mechanic where the reels expand and contract depending on the symbols the player lands.

Players can see how large the reels will be on their next spin, giving added incentive for another exciting spin to secure more ways to win – up to a whopping 262,144 ways.

Swintt has quickly built an unrivalled reputation for designing and delivering casino and live dealer content that is localised for growth markets and that tap into the different player preferences in each. This means each game not only meets but exceeds player expectations.

Some of the developer’s most popular titles include Book of the West, Spin City and Everlasting Spins, all of which can be hooked up to its innovative SwinttGamify tool. This allows operators to set in-game missions and tasks for players to complete, taking engagement and value to the next level.

LuckyCasino, Videoslots and Avento will be the among the first to offer Swintt’s games to players in Sweden, with more expected to follow over the coming months.

David MannChief Commercial Officer at Swintt, said: “We are delighted to have received certification for the Swedish market and make our games available to operators targeting the market for the very first time.

“Our games are localised for high growth markets, ensuring they meet the specific player requirements in each country. Sweden is no different, and our suite of slots will deliver the fun and entertainment that players are seeking.

“We are launching with some incredible operators and look forward to going live with more and bringing additional titles to the Swedish market over the coming months.”

Northern Ireland Gambling Amendment Bill Reaches Assembly

New regulations for the gaming industry in Northern Ireland have been introduced this week in the country’s Assembly, significantly amending the current laws.

The Betting, Gaming, Lotteries and Amusements (Amendment) Bill creates new offences in permitting children to play gaming machines and provides powers to impose a statutory levy on gambling operators.

It establishes a mandatory code of practice for licence holders, broadens the definition of cheating to include attempted cheating, makes gambling contracts enforceable in law and permits bookmakers and bingo clubs to open on Sundays and on Good Friday.

The minimum age for minors to play a gambling machine is now 18 and it will become an offence to invite a person below that age to play. Previously, it was not an offence to permit an under-age person to gamble.

The statutory levy on gambling operators will be employed in a manner similar to the practice in England, where the money raised is used for community projects and treatment of problem gamblers.

An overhaul of online gambling legislation will form a second phase of the changes to Northern Ireland’s gambling scene and will follow after discussions.

An Interpol operation targeting illegal gambling during Euro 2020 led to 1400 arrests and the seizure of $7.9 million (6.7 million euros) in cash, the Lyon-based global crime agency reported.

Thousands of raids in Asia and Europe also resulted in the confiscation of computers and mobile phones connected to almost $465 million in bets.

“While most of us were watching the UEFA European Football Championship as simple fans, hundreds of specialized officers across 28 countries were targeting organized crime groups looking to earn millions from illegal gambling and related money laundering activities,” an Interpol statement read.

Hong Kong police detained more than 800 suspects, “including the alleged kingpin of a triad-controlled bookmaking syndicate,” the statement said.

In what was described as one of Hong Kong’s most successful operations ever they seized $2.7 million in cash and records detailing hundreds of millions in bets.

In Italy, home of the European champions at the pandemic-delayed tournament, Operation SOGA VIII inspected 280 betting shops and delivered 1.3 million euros in sanctions for illegal betting schemes.

In all, Interpol’s eight SOGA operations have led to more than 19,000 arrests, cash seizures of more than $63 million and the closure of over 4000 illegal betting dens.
