The Supreme Administrative Court of Sweden has decided not to grant SafeEnt the trial permit after the local regulator revoked its licence.
Sweden.- SafeEnt’s licences were revoked by Spelinspektionen, the Swedish gambling regulator, earlier this year. The decision was appealed by SafeEnt to the Administrative Court in Linköping. The company requested that the decision did not sustain until the case was decided. However, the court rejected the claim, and —after appealing to the Administrative Court of Appeal— it was rejected again.
SafeEnt appealed against the Court’s ruling to the Supreme Court to have the issue of inhibition finally examined. On August 7, 2019, the Supreme Administrative Court decided not to grant a trial permit.
SafeEnt, which runs online casino Ninja Casino, was subject to Spelinspektionen control and was found to be responsible for deficiencies in operations, including applicable gaming responsibility and measures against money laundering.
The regulator’s review shows that SafeEnt has violated a number of the most important gambling laws in the country. Those aim at protecting players against excessive gambling. One of the discoveries includes customers spending large amounts of money without the company reacting to what the regulations require. They were also able to play well beyond their own deposit limits.
Moreover, deficiencies in money laundering and terrorist financing actions also presented systematic shortcomings. Spelinspektionen also said that when reviewing campaigns and offers, it found that SafeEnt offered bonuses on more than on occasion.
