Endorphina, a leading B2B online slots game provider, has just announced that their trendy games have been certified in the Netherlands. As they continue to make a pleasant entrance in new markets, this brand is also providing attractive slot games to players across regions. This time, Dutch players will be able to enjoy some top hits from Endorphina such as Hell Hot 100, Golden Ox, 2021 Hit Slot, Chance Machine 40, Cash Tank, and many more.

Michal Konuch, Head of Legal at Endorphina, shares a few words about Endorphina’s new certification: “Endorphina’s entry into the regulated Dutch market was facilitated by our recently acquired ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certificate for our In-formation Security Management System. This also reinforces our commitment to supply innovative online slot games that meet the highest industry standards.”

Endorphina’s CEO, Jan Urbanec, also comments on the new expansion: “2022 is shaping up to be a record-breaking year for Endorphina in terms of entering new markets. We’ve highlighted this even further by getting our games certified for the Dutch market during the first month of this quarter. Well done team Endorphina!”

Kindred Group Intends to Appeal Fine from Norwegian Regulator

Kindred Group Intends to Appeal Fine from Norwegian Regulator
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Kindred Group is going to appeal the fine imposed by Norway’s gambling regulator Lotteritilsynet.

The company is facing a fine of NOK 1.2m ($111,902) per day from 5 October for allegedly conducting unlicensed operations in Norway.

But Kindred has remained defiant. Earlier this year, Lotteritilsynet ordered the group to “cease and desist” or else face a fine.

Kindred’s Maltese subsidiary Trannel stands accused of allowing Norwegian customers to gamble, which according to Lotteritilsynet, violates Norway’s strict monopoly.

In response to the order, the group lodged an appeal, but this was rejected by the Oslo District Court. Nevertheless, Kindred has continued to operate as usual.

Events have now come to a head; Lotteritilsynet has followed through on its threat to impose a sanction fee, but the group intends to once again appeal.

“We will appeal the decision of Lotteritilsynet regarding the issuance of this sanction fee and will continue operating as usual, as long as the legal process is ongoing,” Henrik Tjärnström, CEO of Kindred, said.

Tjärnström went on to dispute the claim that Kindred even has operations in Norway, remarking: “We are licensed in Malta and believe that Norwegian customers under current European economic legislation have the right to play on foreign sites if they wish.”

Despite Kindred’s lack of success thus far in Norway’s legal system, Tjärnström is more optimistic regarding the group’s latest appeal.

“It is local courts in Norway that have ruled so far, and it is difficult to get the point across in the first points of call. But this is a bigger issue than just for those courts. It will show with the appeal where this ends up,” he said.

Rootz Receives German Licence

Rootz Ltd has received a licence for the operation of online slot games in Germany.

Germany passed the State Treaty on Gambling in the summer of 2021, with the federal and state governments creating for the first time a nationwide regulation for the operation of online slot machines. The regulation has a particular focus on the protection of players and minors.

Malta-based Rootz has met the requirements of the new State Treaty and has, therefore, received the licence to legally operate online slot machines in the country.

“With this, the company is expected to establish three safe and legal offers on the German gaming market, which comply in particular with the necessary youth and player protection, and thoroughly meet all technical specifications,” a statement from the company read.

“We are very pleased to meet the high requirements of the new State Treaty on Gambling with wildz.de, wheelzgames.de and spinz.de and to launch our brands nationwide in autumn 2022,” Lasse Rantala, CEO of Rootz, said.

Founded in 2018 by iGaming professionals, Rootz Ltd. has a strong focus on innovative and efficient programming, along with powerful graphics and rich content.
