Companies in Netherlands Express Their Interest for Online Gambling Licence
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

In the Netherlands, a total of 125 companies have told the country’s gambling regulator that they are interested to obtain the online gambling licence, once it becomes legal in 2021. Two-thirds of the requests come from outside the Netherlands and include big names such as Bwin, Unibet and Pokerstars.

Earlier this year, the Senate voted to open up the market to other companies. Holland Casino is the only state-regulated gambling establishment in the Netherlands.

The new law is restrictive and contains a number of elements to try to combat addiction. Players have to register and state their limit and will be periodically reminded of the risk of addiction on screen.

The gambling firms will also have to appoint an addiction expert and pay gambling taxes of 29%, which is one of the highest in Europe.

“It is going to be expensive. You have to pay for the licence, tax and a percentage of your earnings must go into a fund to combat addiction,” Lawyer Justin Franssen, on behalf of some of the applicants said.

Stakelogic Revamps its Super Stake Feature
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Online slot developer Stakelogic has revamped its Super Stake feature for delivering more excitement and bigger wins to players.

The Mega Super Stake allows players to place a side bet and enable an additional feature that delivers an insanely high payout once in every 35 spins or so.

With the standard Super Stake feature, the side bet allows players to double their bet but with Mega Super Stake their original bet is multiplied by 2.5 for not just big but mega win potential. Both Super Stake and Mega Super Stake can be built into a single slot game.

“Super Stake has been an absolute game-changer for us and our players so we wanted to build on this and deliver even more entertainment. Mega Super Stake takes the big win anticipation and potential to the next level, allowing players to land massive wins at a regular hit rate from a relatively small stake,” Stephan van den Oetelaar, CEO of Stakelogic, said.

“Mega Super Stake will debut with our next release, Lion Gold, and will then be built into other games where our developers and mathematicians feel it will add the most value,” he added.

Tobias Fagerlund Steps Down as Global Gaming CEO
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Tobias Fagerlund has stepped down as the CEO of Global Gaming with immediate effect. The Board has appointed Board member Christian Rasmussen as Acting CEO.

Tobias was appointed as the acting CEO of Global Gaming on 29 April 2019 and has been the permanent CEO of the company since 2 July 2019.

“It is my opinion that Tobias during his time as CEO led Global Gaming in a very meritorious way. Tobias has implemented a large package of restructuring measures and shown evidence of a strong and clear leadership that was absolutely necessary for the company. Tobias has thus with great success laid a good foundation for Global Gaming’s future operations. Now, however, the company is facing a new phase and we have identified a number of measures necessary to further strengthen the company’s position. The CEO has worked from Stockholm, where he has been the company’s only employee, and there is a need for leadership to operate where our operating units are allocated, in Estonia and Malta,” Niklas Braathen, Chairman of the Board of Global Gaming, said.

“On behalf of the board and the company, I would like to thank Tobias for his work, and would like to point out that during the time I have been chairman of the board, we have had a very good collaboration and that I look forward to continuing in various forms,” Niklas Braathen added.
