Norwegian Ministry Backs Lotteritilsynet’s Proposal for Lottery, Bingo AML Exemptions

The Norwegian Ministry of Finance has given its backing to a proposal from Lotteritilsynet, the national lottery authority, to exempt lottery and bingo organisers from new anti-money laundering regulations.

The proposal would reduce regulatory burdens on approximately 350 teams, associations and organisations that do not rely on third-party contractors for their bingo or lottery offerings to be exempt from the country’s new money-laundering regulations.

As outlined by Norway’s gambling regulator, when the new rules were introduced last October, they extended the scope of operational restrictions to anyone offering games licensed under the Gambling, Lottery and Totalisator Act. However, in ushering in the new regulations, organisations were invited to apply for exemptions.

The Lotteritilsynet delivered a final risk assessment on May 29 to the Ministry of Finance, outlining the perceived low risk of money laundering and terrorist financing via bingo associations and so-called ‘Section 6’, or charitable, lotteries.

In confirming the submission of the proposal, Finance Minister Siv Jensen said it is important not to “impose disproportionate burdens.”

“I am pleased that with a solid risk assessment from the Lottery Authority, so we can propose how to simplify [the regulations] for teams and associations around the country,” Jensen added.

Book of Ra™ deluxe, Lucky Lady’s Charm™ deluxe and Super Cherry will be among the first titles to launch on swiss4win.ch, providing a premium collection of content that already has a strong fanbase among both land-based and online audiences in the market. Players will also soon be able to enjoy new additions such as Super Cherry 5000 and Book of Ra™ Magic, as the supplier continues to expand the range of specially selected games available in the regulated jurisdiction.

The Casino Lugano partnership cements Greentube’s footprint in Switzerland’s fast-growing online sector with the company having signed with a succession of tier one operators since the market opened for business in 2019.

Michael Bauer, CFO/CGO of Greentube, said: “Switzerland has quickly turned into one of our most successful markets to date and we are pleased to be furthering our reach with another well-respected brand in the country’s sector.

“We knew from the very start of launching swiss4win.ch that we wanted to offer Greentube’s renowned online casino games, since titles from the Book of Ra and Super Cherry series are already favourites in our land-based venues,” said Gianmaria Frapolli, CEO and Board Member of Casinò Lugano SA. “Our players are going to love playing their classic slots online and we look forward to launching more of the modern, interactive content that is promised from their exciting roadmap.”

Yggdrasil and ReelPlay release Asgardian adventure Odin Infinity Reels™ Megaways™
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Yggdrasil, the leading worldwide publisher of online gambling content, has partnered with ReelPlay for its latest collaboration, Odin Infinity Reels™ featuring Megaways™.

The game is the first to combine both the popular Megaways™ and Infinity Reels™ mechanics and is set in the mountainous world of Asgard with the rainbow bridge Bifrost looming in the distance.

The game begins with 3 reels of differing numbers of symbols. The Infinity Reels™ mechanic sees the reels expand with every winning combination, as well as upping the win multiplier. Lucky players who reach the 15th reel or beyond are in line to score a bonus 888x jackpot prize.

To trigger the bonus game, six Gungnir Scatter symbols must land across any number of reels in play. The game transitions into a dual wheel selector where players will discover their amount of free spins and the multiplier in play. With the win multiplier incrementing with every additional reel added in the bonus game, players have the chance to claim colossal wins worthy of any Norse god.

Odin Infinity Reels™ Megaways™ is the latest ReelPlay title released via the YG Masters program, deployed utilising Yggdrasil’s innovative GATI technology. Used by all YG Masters partners, this technology allows developers to employ the preconfigured, regulation-ready, standardised development toolkit to produce consistently cutting-edge content.

Rapid circulation across Yggdrasil’s distribution network enables all YG Masters partners to scale and fast-track their global growth strategies.

Stuart McCarthy, Head of Partner Programs at Yggdrasil, said: “The YG Masters program was designed to facilitate leading products from some of the most innovative studios in the industry, and this latest game ticks every box.

“ReelPlay has been a fantastic partner for us and we’re very pleased to roll out their newest hit which is true to our Nordic roots.”

David Johnson, CEO at ReelPlay, said: “Odin Infinity Reels™ featuring Megaways™ provides a world first combination of two hugely popular online slot mechanics in the same game, making 117,649 Megaways™ seem small fry. Odin is the first slot in the world to offer Megaways™ to infinity!

“A collaboration for our time, steeped in the cloak of Norse mythology, Odin takes a huge step in volatility and we’re proud to launch our stunning adventure as a YG Masters partner.”
