Swedish Regulator Proposes to Limit Football Betting
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Spelinspektionen, the gambling regulator in Sweden, has proposed to limit football betting in the country as part of efforts to reduce match-fixing.

The proposed restrictions would mean that operators could only offer betting markets on the country’s top four football divisions.

For the Swedish Cup, only matches featuring teams from the four leagues can be offered as betting markets. International games would be restricted to under-21 games and up while wagering on training matches and friendlies would be forbidden.

The regulator has also implied that these regulations could be introduced across other sports, too.

The regulator will go through a consultation period inviting industry stakeholders to share their thoughts from May 6. The consultation comes at a time when concerns are being raised over the current restrictions in place, with some suggesting they are forcing players towards unlicensed, off-shore sites.

iGaming software provider EveryMatrix and National Lottery plc, a subsidiary of IZI Group plc, have signed an agreement through which the supplier has been selected to provide online games to the Maltese National Lottery.

National Lottery plc recently won the concession to manage and operate the national lottery of Malta. For the first time in 18 years, the Maltese National Lottery will be run by a fully-owned Maltese company.

National Lottery plc chose International Game Technology (IGT) as its lottery technology provider, and EveryMatrix will supply the lottery with its suite of online products. EveryMatrix will integrate the IGT retail transaction engine into its CasinoEngine solution, the iGaming Integration Platform, via IGT’s Aurora Anywhere, making all of the National Lottery’s draw-based games available online, on both desktops and mobile devices.

Ebbe Groes, Group CEO of EveryMatrix, says: “We are very proud to be able to support National Lottery plc in this way. We believe the benefits delivered by our system will enable the national lottery to safely channel Maltese players away from illegal or abusive secondary lotteries. The integration of the world’s no. 1 lottery system provider speaks volumes about the performance of our platform.”

Franco DeGabriele, CCO of National Lottery plc, comments: “After 18 years since the privatisation of the national lottery of Malta in 2004, the lottery will be operated for the first time by a wholly-owned Maltese company, whose mission is to provide the market with a service that is local, innovative and of the highest levels of quality.

“We will invest in the systems to ensure the service offered meets the highest standards and is built on the most rigorous compliance frameworks. Our digital innovation will put Malta on the global map, and we will work closely with the authorities to eradicate all forms of lottery abuse.”

Blueprint Gaming’s latest slot release is a fresh take on the ever-popular theme of glittering golden prizes with the additional draw of its recent mechanic in Gold Blitz Free Spins Fortune Play.

Making the most of proven, successful gameplay elements, Gold Blitz Free Spins Fortune Play sets its sights on devotees of free spins and high volatility games and adds Fortune Play – which allows for play across four reel sets simultaneously.

Three bonus symbols in view award the Free Spins round where only the top three Gold Bullion symbols and wilds are on the reels, giving a far greater chance of a super-stacked golden win.

After any reel win, a key engagement feature is the ability to collect the amount won or gamble it on one of two gamble wheels – one for cash and the other for the chance to win a number of Free Spins. Does the player keep their winnings or gamble for a potentially enormous 50 free spins?

Fortune Play is where the action really hots up, with only the top three Gold Bullion symbols and wilds in play on the reels. Any wilds that land transfer to any remaining reels, giving more chance for big wins.

The incredible free spins on offer alongside the opportunity to play four reel sets at once set Gold Blitz Free Spins Fortune Play apart as a highly volatile slots experience that is crammed with opportunity.

Jo Purvis, Director of Key Accounts and Marketing UK at Blueprint Gaming, said: “The action is pure gold in this homage to free spins and frenzied action. The trademark Blueprint polish brings the glittering reels and symbols to life especially when Fortune Play begins.

“Players will love the attention to the rich golden detail on each reel as they search for their own Gold Blitz from up to 50 free spins and is another example of Blueprint’s insight into developing a fantastically fun slot.”
