SafeEnt, which is a subsidiary of Global Gaming has been granted permission to launch a fresh appeal against Spelinspektionen’s decision to strip it of its license in Sweden.
The Administrative Court of Appeal in Jönköping has ruled that a fresh appeal review can be made over the Swedish gambling regulator’s decision.
Last year, SafeEnt had its license revoked for deficiencies in the way the firm was operating, which Global Gaming appealed unsuccessfully.
The license was primarily in relation to Ninja Casino that was operating under the SafeEnt brand.
Ninja Casino is still currently in operation on its various domains, including .com, and will continue to provide online gambling activities during the appeal process as it has done since the initial revocation. The casino is currently operating in other jurisdictions under its Estonian license.
Despite failed attempts to reverse the ruling (the most recent being November 2019), Global Gaming may use the permission from the Administrative Court of Appeal to launch a fresh appeal. Though it is not yet apparent when the court will make a decision over the case.
Tobias Fagerlund, CEO of Global Gaming, who’s been a member of the company’s board since 2016 commented on the result:
“We are, of course, relieved that the Administrative Court of Appeal today has granted a review permit of the case. We hope that the Administrative Court of Appeal will eventually share our opinion that the Swedish Gambling Authority’s decision was disproportionate and incorrect.”
