The online gaming operator Global Gaming was authorized by the Administrative Court of Appeals of Jönköping to appeal the decision of the Swedish regulator Spelinspektionen to revoke the license in the country to its subsidiary SafeEnt.
The SafeEnt online gambling and betting license was revoked by Spelinspektionen in June 2019, after finding “serious shortcomings” of the company in business practices. The failures detected are related to the lack of measures against money laundering and responsible gambling.
The decision of the regulator was appealed by Global Gaming through a series of resources, however the operator has not yet been able to reverse the ruling against him to continue its operations.
But now, the Administrative Court of Appeals in Jönköping has ruled that the operator can try a new appeal against Spelinspektionen’s decision, although it is unknown when the Court will decide on the case.
On the court ruling, Global Gaming chief executive Tobias Fagerlund said:
“Of course, we are relieved that today’s Administrative Court of Appeals has granted a case review permit. We hope that the Administrative Court of Appeals will eventually share our opinion that the decision of the Swedish Gaming Authority was disproportionate and incorrect.”
In November 2019, Global Gaming filed its last appeal to the executive measure, but the Swedish Administrative Court denied the appeal. The operator then declared that he was evaluating whether he was taking the case to the Administrative Court of Appeal.
Although Global Gaming has not been able to operate through its subsidiary in the country SafeEnt since then, it is still active in Sweden thanks to its partnership with Finnplay Group.
NanoCasino operates through a Swedish commercial online gaming license owned by Viral Interactive Limited, which is associated with one of Global Gaming’s subsidiaries. The head of the NanoCasino.com website in Sweden is Viral Interactive, a subsidiary of Finnplay.
In September 2019, the NinjaCasino domain was also transferred by Global Gaming to Viral Interactive. In this way it was able to resume its activities in the Swedish market, after the regulator revoked their license.
