The Swedish Gaming Inspectorate, Spelinspektionen, announced this week that two companies have been reprimanded for violating regulations and guidelines. More Tech Group Ltd and Multi Gaming Group Ltd have been urged to take corrective action based on specific violations.
More Tech Group Ltd
For this company, the Inspectorate noted that article 17 of the Swedish Lottery rules and general advice on gambling liability were violated. The company logo for deposit limits and login time was missing in offline mode on the brand’s website and mobile services.
More technical group was also found in violation of Articles 7 and 8 of the Online Commercial Gaming and Betting Guidelines. In this section, the company has not provided contact details on its home page. This is a violation of the licensee’s information responsibility.
The company has corrected its mistakes and continues to offer games through the site of the super loto club. For the Inspectorate, the regulator does not consider the issue of logos as a major infringement, but it is not excusable and a required action on the part of the company.
Offer games via multilotto.com and multilotto.se, Multi Brand Gaming Ltd was also reprimanded by the Inspectorate after an assessment found that the company was in violation of Article 17 of the Gambling Liability Regulations and Guidelines.
Logos for self-test, as well as determining the login time and limiting deposits were missing from the website and mobile service pages. All of these details should be located on the operator pages so that players can access information when needed.
The regulator said Multi Brand Gaming Ltd has taken appropriate action to remedy the situation. Because the violation is not serious, the company was only reprimanded by the regulator.
LeoVegas AB penalized
The reprimand actions come just months after the regulator decided to impose a fine LeoVegas AB $ 238,100 for a customer due diligence violation of anti-money laundering regulatory protocols.
After the fine has been pronounced, Leo Vegas announced its intention to appeal the decision. The gaming operator announced at the time that it was continually developing policies to maintain compliance and had changed and updated its customer vigilance routines before the regulator’s investigation began.
The company further stated that every year it is subject to audits and reviews by local officials and external auditors. Compliance is a top priority for the brand and it continues to take steps to make changes to meet regulatory requirements.
