Online gambling operator Global Gaming has failed in its effort to overturn a decision to strip its SafeEnt subsidiary of its Swedish licence after the country’s Administrative Court rejected an appeal.
The Swedish Gambling Authority (Spelinspektionen), revoked Global Gaming’s licences for both commercial online gambling and betting this past June, six months after Sweden reorganized its online gambling market.
The company appealed Spelinspektionen’s decision and sought to be allowed to resume operations of its flagship Ninja Casino brand, but its efforts failed in several Swedish courts. Most recently, the Administrative Court in Sweden dismissed Global Gaming’s appeal, ruling that the gambling regulator was right to revoke the operator’s license due to the seriousness of its violations of Swedish gambling laws and regulations.
“We are disappointed by the court ruling and do not share their opinion. We are now examining the decision in detail and I assume that we will appeal this decision to the Administrative Court of Appeal,” stated Tobias Fagerlund, chief executive of Global Gaming.
In a statement on its official website, Spelinspektionen welcomed the Administrative Court’s ruling.
However, despite being without its SafeEnt subsidiary in Sweden, Global Gaming is now active in Sweden through a partnership with Finnplay Group.Follow us on
