Swedish court rejects SafeEnt’s appeal

Another Court has rejected SafeEnt’s appeal against the decision to revoke the company’s licence.

Sweden.- The Administrative Court of Appeal has rejected SafeEnts’ appeal against the Administrative Court’s decision not to issue an inhibition. Thus, SafeEnt cannot conduct gambling activities while the local gambling regulator’s decision to revoke the licence is being tested.

The gaming regulator Spelinspektionen found SafeEnt to be responsible for deficiencies in operations, including applicable gaming responsibility and measures against money laundering. The regulator said that its review shows that SafeEnt has violated a number of the most important gambling laws in the country, which are aimed at protecting players against excessive gambling.

One of the discoveries included customers that were able to spend large amounts of money without the company having reacted to what the regulations require. They were also able to play well beyond their own deposit limits.

The regulator said that it believes that the risks for the customers would be great if the company were allowed to conduct gambling activities and therefore welcomed the decision of the Administrative Court of Appeal.
