SOFTSWISS Game Aggregator Obtains a Greek License
The SOFTSWISS Game Aggregator has received a Manufacturer Suitability License (A.1), which will allow the company to expand its presence in the Greek market. The Hellenic Gaming Commission (HGC) has ruled that the SOFTSWISS Gaming Aggregator can legally provide B2B gambling services.
The A.1 Category license allows the company to offer its services to gambling operators in Greece for 7 years. According to the licensing conditions at the moment the SOFTSWISS Game Aggregator can legally provide local operators with access to the content from 12 gaming studios.
Earlier this year SOFTSWISS obtained a Greek B2C gaming license for its first partner project in the Greek iGaming market. According to the legislation, the license is intended to operate in Greece and is available to players with Greek passports, IDs and bank accounts, as well as permanent residents of the country.
The official operation on the territory of Greece became possible after the adoption of new regulations by the country government in October 2019. As a result, the Hellenic Gaming Commission (HGC) opened the application process for new online gaming licenses at the end of 2020. The new rules provide for two types of operating licenses: for online gambling and for online betting. The new rules provide for both B2C operating licenses and B2B online gambling solution provider licenses.
“Obtaining a Greek gaming license was the result of SOFTSWISS’ long and hard work, which over the years has accumulated extensive experience and understanding of the iGaming market. Recognising the needs of our clients, we are constantly moving towards development and finding new solutions. One of them was getting local licenses, which allows SOFTSWISS to expand its presence in new regions. This summer we already opened a Greek market with a B2C gaming license. Now with the new B2B license local operators will be able to enjoy the benefits of the SOFTSWISS Game Aggregator. We have a lot to offer to the local gambling industry, so I am sure there are a lot of interesting projects and partnerships ahead of us”, comments Andrey Starovoitov, COO at SOFTSWISS.
The Game Aggregator API connects over 11,000 games from 170+ game studios to casino, sports betting and poker brands via a single integration.
SOFTSWISS is a widely-acclaimed iGaming expert supplying certified software solutions for managing gambling operations. The company has an international team, which counts 1000+ employees and has an official presence in Malta, Belarus, Poland and Georgia.

Stakelogic continues to take the industry by storm with yet another big-name operator partnership in the bag. The in-demand studio has just signed a deal with Fonbet to deliver its full suite of classic and video slots to the operator’s players in Greece.
The integration adds variety and quality to Fonbet’s game lobby, with its players now able to experience the hype that surrounds Stakelogic’s slots for the first time. Whether they prefer nostalgia-fill classic slots, or action-packed video slots, there are games for all player preferences.

When it comes to modern video slots, those developed by Stakelogic often go on to top the charts in markets across the world.
