Stakelogic Live now broadcasting in the UK
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Stakelogic Live continues to establish itself as a leading provider of premium live casino content in core regulated jurisdictions after being awarded a supplier licence by the UK Gambling Commission, allowing it to enter the market for the very first time.

Stakelogic Live is already certified in Malta and the Netherlands and has built a varied portfolio of live casino games across blackjack, roulette, money wheel and slots.

Stakelogic Live is streamed out of dedicated studios in Malta and the Netherlands, which include high-definition cameras, powerful microphones and the latest broadcast and streaming technologies to deliver an engaging and entertaining experience at all times. This has been proven by several of Stakelogic Live’s esteemed clients, such as Unibet, Toto, Betcity and Kansino, who have Dutch-speaking dedicated studios which run 24/7.

Each table is set against a glamorous and opulent background, creating an authentic casino atmosphere. Highly trained dealers host each table and interact with players throughout to ensure they feel like VIPs from their first game round to their last.

Stakelogic Live has also brought several innovative concepts to the live dealer space, including Super Stake. This was first developed by parent company Stake Logic to turbo-charge the gameplay in its classic slots and modern video slots but is now available on select live games.

Super Stake allows players to effectively double their bet to increase the chance of a bonus feature triggering and insane win combinations landing. There is nothing else like it in the live casino market.

With its UK Gambling Commission permit in hand, Stakelogic Live will roll out its suite of games with big-name operators active in the market, just as it has done in the Netherlands and Malta jurisdictions where it has partnered with the likes of Unibet.

Stephan van den Oetelaar, CEO of Stakelogic, said: “This is a pivotal milestone on our journey to becoming the leading provider of live casino content to operators in regulated markets around the world.

“The UK is often seen as the benchmark for regulation, so it is a testament to the quality of our games that we have secured the required approvals to enter the market and help operators take their live casino proposition to the next level.

“Our live dealer titles really are a cut above those of our rivals, allowing operators to strengthen their live casino offering with games that engage and entertain in equal measure. We have had great success in other regulated markets and expect the same in the UK.”

He also added: “I am incredibly proud of the entire Stakelogic Live team for working together to secure our UK Gambling Commission licence. We believe this will be a major market for us and look forward to seeing players enjoy the compelling experience our live dealer titles provide.”

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.”

STATEMENT FROM LIVESPINS

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.”
