Sweden’s Supreme Administrative Court has rejected Global Gaming’s appeal to allow it to operate its Ninja Casino in Sweden. The decision has shut all doors for the gambling operator to restart Ninja casino operations while the gambling authority is reviewing its license revocation.
Earlier in June, Swedish gambling regulator, Spelinspektionen suspended the Ninja Casino and has asked the gambling operator ‘SafeEnt’, a subsidiary of Global Gaming which operates the online casino in the country to cease operations of the gambling site with immediate effect.
The decision to cease operations and suspend the license for Ninja Casino came after the gambling regulator found significant deficiencies and drawbacks in the company’s operations. As per the reports, the gambling regulator found that the company was not ensuring the compliance guidelines and was also lax on implementing anti-money-laundering measures.
However, following the ban, the gambling operator launched an appeal in an administrative court which was rejected. The Administrative Court observed that gambling could not be used as a means of money laundering. The court, however, agreed that the gambling regulator’s decision could have caused the company severe damages.
Following the ban imposed on Ninja casino, Global Gaming plans to launch a new online gambling website with igaming technology and platform provider Finnplay Group, in its bid to continue offering online casino and other gambling products to Swedish players.
The new online casino would be named NanCasino would be operated by Viral Interactive, a Finnplay subsidiary which already holds an online gambling license in Sweden.
