Court Throws Out Ninja Casino's Attempt to Overturn Revocation

This story was published more than 4 years ago.

This week a Swedish court threw out an appeal from Ninja Casino owner Global Gaming, who was seeking to have their license revocation overturned after they were banned by the country's regulator.

The Administrative Court of Linköping threw out the appeal, rejecting Global's argument that their lapse in money laundering and responsible gaming controls weren't putting players at risk. The court did admit the license revocation would have serious consequences for Global Gaming, but said that the regulations are in place for a reason, and the protection of players is paramount.

Sweden's gaming regulator pulled Ninja's gaming license, citing repeated lapses in the country's gaming laws.

Global has the opportunity to appeal this decision, and it's likely that they will. If they do appeal, the case will drag on for some time. We'll update readers as the case progresses.
