Its diverse portfolio consists of premium Crash, Mine, Table and Slot games, as well as a certified Plinko. This includes a range of successful titles, such as Coin Miner, Penalty Champion, Jet Lucky 2, Raging Zeus Mines & Aztec Bonus Pot.

Sweden will be added to the growing list of territories where Gaming Corps is approved, after meeting requirements and securing licences in Gibraltar, the Netherlands, Greece, Estonia and Spain.

Juha Kauppinen, Gaming Corps’ CEO, said: “It is gratifying for us that more and more markets are moving towards regulation, and we are pleased to become an official licensee in Sweden as we continue to grow the number of markets where players can enjoy our premium game content.

UKGC Imposes ÂŁ490,000 Fine on PPB

The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has imposed a fine of ÂŁ490,000 on PPB Counterparty Services Limited, trading as Paddy Power and Betfair, for sending promotional push notifications to devices linked to customers who had self-excluded.

On 21 November 2021, the operator’s app distributed an offer of enhanced odds for bets on an English Premier League football match to devices either linked to accounts that were GAMSTOP registered or devices linked to accounts that were self-excluded with the Licensee.

This action breached Commission rules requiring gambling businesses to take all reasonable steps to prevent any marketing material being sent to a self-excluded customer, and to take steps to remove the name and details of a self-excluded individual from any marketing databases within two days of receiving the completed self-exclusion notification.

Kay Roberts, Gambling Commission Executive Director of Operations, said: “Although there is no evidence the marketing was intentional, nor that all the people with apps saw the notification or that self-excluded customers were allowed to gamble, we take such breaches seriously.

“We would advise all operators to learn from the operator’s failures and ensure their systems are robust enough to always prevent self-excluded customers from being sent promotional material.”
