After a long experience and key roles in this sector, Grisci enriches the company branch headed by Troy Cox to strengthen the SKS365 retail network

 

SKS365 is still growing and after having renewed, at the beginning of 2019, its brand Planetwin365, it is enriching its staff too, appointing Luca Grisci as Director of Retail.

Grisci will head the Retail department, a fundamental asset of the company, within the team of Troy Cox, Chief Commercial Officer of SKS365, in order to improve and enlarge the Planetwin365 retail net in the national territory: “It’s an exciting time for SKS365 to have such a key player to join our teamCCO Cox commented – Luca’s enthusiasm and knowledge will help take Planetwin365 in Retail to number 1.

Grisci has many years of experience in this sector, starting from its entry into Sisal SpA in 1993. In May 2013 he joined Stanleybet, where he gained important international experience covering various managerial roles.

I am enthusiastic and very motivated by the role the company has given to me through this appointment – new Director of Retail affirms – This is an important challenge for me and for the entire team, in particular in this moment where, who is going to adapt firstly to the future of the market, would have a competitive advantage to become a referral player for customers and for whole betting sector.

Grisci’s entry underlines, in fact, the ambitious strategy, already confirmed during Enada Primavera last March, that sees among the main assets of SKS365’s 2019 the management of the Planetwin365 network as a key lever to affirm the presence and identity of the brand as a symbol of reliability and solidity.

Gambling Compliance tracker reports record breaking quarter for regulators
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Online gambling regulators were busy in the first quarter of 2020, issuing a total of in excess of £25m in fines to just five online gambling operators between January and March.

This is a huge increase over penalties issued in previous years. Online gambling compliance tracker GamblingIndustryFines.com tracked a total of over £16m in fines doled out to iGaming operators for the whole of 2019.

The first fine of the year was issued in January by the Malta Gaming Authority – a £2M fine for Blackrock Media for “servicing unauthorized transactions”.

GVC Australia was up next on Valentine’s day – receiving a fine for £106k after two GVC brands, Ladbrokes and Neds – were found guilty of offering betting bonuses to people who opened new betting accounts – contrary to Australian law.

The same month, Mr Green was on the receiving end of a £3M fine from the UK Gambling Commission for systemic failings in its measures to stop money laundering and problem gambling.

The UKGC issued Betway with a record £11.6m fine in March as a settlement for accepting stolen money from high spending “VIP” customers, some of whom were displaying clear signs of gambling addiction.

The final regulator fine of the first quarter went to Kindred Group when Spooniker Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Kindred Group received a warning and a sanction fee in the sum of SEK 100 million (USD 9,5m/£8.5m) by the Swedish Gambling Authority (SGA) for offering customers financial incentives which are in breach of the new gambling legislation.
