The group has moved its services to a different holding company after being blacklisted in Finland.

Sweden.- Betsson has announced that it has moved its online gaming services for European customers from BML Group to a new holding company named Rizk Nordic Limited. This company is licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA).

The move comes after BML Group was blacklisted in Finland in the first such move by Finnish Police. The decision prohibited Finnish banks and payment providers from processing payments to BML. By switching to Rizk Nordic, Betsson would remain compliant with all government injunctions under the Lottery Act.
