Kindred Group has become the winner of “Sweden’s Best Looking Office.” The competition puts the spotlight on companies that have successfully combined aesthetic and compelling environments with a smart and flexible working space adapted to fit the organisations specific needs.

Kindred moved into their new office at Urban Escape in central Stockholm in April after a close cooperation with the architect bureau Studio Stockholm.

“Kindred is a growing business are therefore in need of a flexible and modern office that can accommodate our future needs. Sustainability is an important component for Kindred, and this is reflected in how we chose to design our workspace. I believe that this is something that we – in cooperation with Studio Stockholm – can be very proud of,” Kajsa Ericsson, Head of Facilities Management at Kindred Group said.

“Studio Stockholm has for several years worked with a line of gambling- and tech companies which gives us an understanding of the sector and suggestions on different type of solutions that can create value over time. Kindred realized that they needed to develop an international tech hub in Stockholm that reflects the companies culture and values which they today get rewarded for with a well deserved prize,” Marco Checchi, founding partner and interior designer at Studio Stockholm said.

“We used employee needs as a foundation when establishing our new tech hub. We managed to successfully create a working environment which fulfills the brief of needing a space to work in an effective and sustainable manner. In areas where we didn’t find solutions meeting the criteria that we set up on the market, we choose to invent and design them ourselves. By employees – for employees,” Kajsa Ericsson said.

Rivers Casino opened in 2011 under the provisions of the Riverboat Gambling Act of 1990.

Rush Street plans to invest $150 million to expand the casino and increase the number of gaming positions to 2000.

Silvio Schembri, the Junior Minister for Financial Services of Malta, has played down serious concerns raised by Neil McArthur, CEO of the UK Gambling Commission, after the reveal that Malta-based gaming companies were the biggest offenders in Britain.

“The Malta Gaming Authority is doing a sterling job. Our duty as politicians is that we give all the necessary tools, by enhancing legislation and helping regulatory bodies as MGA to monitor and sanction were needed. This is what we are doing, and what we will continue to do in the future,” Schembri said.

Neil McArthur slammed Malta’s compliance as simply “not good enough” during a recent speech in Malta.

“The Commission is clear that although progress has been made in the regulation of the online market since 2014, far more needs to be done to raise standards,” McArthur said.

Malta-based companies currently hold the largest market share of the UK online gaming market, accounting for close to 30% of the total, with the industry exploding since the introduction of the tax rebate system.
