SoftGamings Expands Its Footprint with a Romania License
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The National Office for Gambling in Romania granted SoftGamings a Class II license reserved for software distributors in the gambling market.

SoftGamings is pleased to announce it has received a Class II license from Romania’s chief gambling regulator — Romanian National Gambling Office (ONJN). Under the license agreement, SoftGamings is entitled to provide management and hosting services for gaming platforms, per Article 20 (6) of GEO 77/2009.

The legislative framework of Romania changed in 2015 to address the development of the iGaming industry and position the country among leaders in Europe.

ONJN-licensed remote gambling operators are now able to integrate SoftGamings’ award-winning casino and sports betting solutions into their platforms and use our management and hosting services for the enhancement of their products. Local clients can explore the quick and easy API integration opportunities, flexible Turnkey and White Label Casino solutions, and highly-customisable bonus programs from SoftGamings, hoping to increase player retention and loyalty.

The license from ONJN is another one in the long line of local gaming licenses after the company has managed to secure B2B certificates from the Hellenic Gaming Commission in Greece, and B2B supplier licenses from gambling regulators in Belarus, Latvia, and Belgium.

“We are steadily pushing forward towards new regulated markets and gaining a foothold in new regions, and the ONJN license we received is another testament to that fact. The licensing agreement resulted from years of hard work and dedication we invested in understanding the iGaming market and improving it. By recognising our clients’ and the market’s needs and, ultimately, learning how to align the two, we have devised solutions guaranteed to help our Romanian clients distinguish themselves from the competition. We are excited for all the new partnerships and projects that are bound to come out from this new milestone for the company.”, said Anna Lalina, director of partnerships at SoftGamings.

AUSTRAC Launches SkyCity Adelaide Penalty Proceedings

The Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre is launching civil penalty proceedings against SkyCity Adelaide for alleged serious and systemic anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing failures.

AUSTRAC is looking into the operator after an enforcement investigation into SkyCity in June last year. The investigation was a result of an AUSTRAC industry-wide compliance campaign that began in September 2019.

The government agency alleges that SkyCity Adelaide failed to appropriately assess the money laundering and terrorism financing risks it faced, including the likelihood and impact of those risks, and to identify and respond to changes in risk over time.

SkyCity also allegedly did not include in its AML/CTF programmes appropriate risk-based systems and controls to mitigate the risks to which SkyCity was exposed.

AUSTRAC thirdly alleges, among more claims, that SkyCity did not conduct appropriate ongoing customer due diligence on a range of customers who presented higher money laundering risks.

AUSTRAC deputy CEO Peter Soros said: “The requirement for regulated entities to have appropriate AML/CTF controls and systems in place is not optional and should be taken seriously by all businesses regulated by AUSTRAC.

“AUSTRAC continues to work with SkyCity to ensure it complies with its obligations under the AML/CTF Act and to ensure it continues to meet its obligations in the future.”

Soros said the ruling – the third civil penalty proceeding AUSTRAC has brought against businesses operating in the casino sector – “should serve as a warning.”

Dutch Gaming Authority Takes Action Over Unauthorised World Cup Marketing Breaches

The Dutch Gaming Authority (KSA) is extra alert to unauthorised activities by providers of games of chance. The rules are clear, but providers of gambling activities seem to push the boundaries here and there.

The Ksa has approached two online operators about advertising in a game in which people can create a World Cup pool. This is not allowed. This is to prevent people who are interested in games, mostly young people, from being tempted by advertisements to participate in games of chance. The gambling operators have stopped doing this.

In the past week, a number of providers of games of chance were once again held accountable for the prohibited use of role models in advertising or sponsorship. The name or logo of a gambling company cannot be in the same communication as the image, voice or name of a role model. This also applies to sponsoring an event or TV programme. These providers have been summoned to stop the violation and have complied.

In addition, the Ksa addressed a party (refers to another website) for advertising bets on a match while that match was in progress. That is not allowed to prevent impulsive behavior among viewers of those matches. The provider immediately stopped the violation. A local café where bets were organized on the matches of the Dutch national team also had to deal with the Ksa. This form of betting is an illegal game of chance, and that is not allowed. The café immediately stopped offering the bets.

In total, 14 warnings have been issued in recent weeks around the World Cup.
