Ninja Casino Operator Fails to Get License Reinstated

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

Ninja Casino operator Global Gaming has failed at their latest attempt to have the license of their subsidiary SafeEnt reinstated in Sweden after the Supreme Administrative Court rejected the group's request for an injunction.

SafeEnt had their license yanked after the country's gaming regulator Spelinspektionen found that there were "serious deficiencies" in the company's business practices related to anti-money laundering laws and responsible gaming rules. The decision was instantly met with appeals from Global Gaming, who has tried over the past two months to use every legal avenue that they have to get their license back. Each time, courts in Sweden have denied the group's requests.

With the latest appeal denied, Global will now focus on judicial review of the original ruling. Speaking about the decision Global Gaming CEO Tobias Fagerlund said, "Although we were aware that the chances of being granted injunctive relief were limited, we are, of course, disappointed to see our appeal rejected again.

"Our focus is now on the judicial review of the Spelinspektionen's decision that is currently taking place. We maintain that the decision is fundamentally wrong and disproportionate, and will show it during the process that is currently underway in the Administrative Court."

I know that Sweden gave many license over the last 1 or 2 years. The Swedish authority is regulating very thoroughly and taking action swiftly. Ninja should shut up 😀

Will be interesting how this story is going to develop next...obviously there's a few hundred thousands more to be spent on lawyers and we'll see whether the brand could be able to clean their reputation or that would be impossible if all statements of what they've done in the past have been proved in court.
