The Swedish Gaming Inspectorate, Spelinspektionen, has announced this week that two companies have been reprimanded for violations of regulations and guidelines. Both More Tech Group Ltd and Multi Gaming Group Ltd have been told to take corrective action based on specific violations.
More Tech Group Ltd
For this company, the Inspectorate found that section 17 of the Swedish Lottery regulations and general advice on gaming liability was violated. The company’s logo for deposit limits and the login time was missing in logged-out mode on the website and mobile services of the brand.
More Tech Group was also found in violation of sections 7 and 8 of the commercial online gambling and betting guidelines. In this section, the company failed to provide contact information details on its home page. This is a violation of licensee information responsibility.
The company has corrected its mistakes and continues to offer games via the superlottoclub site. For the Inspectorate, the regulator does not see the logos issue as a major infraction, but it is not excusable and required action by the company.
Multi Brand Gaming
Offering games via multilotto.com and multilotto.se, Multi Brand Gaming Ltd has also been reprimanded by the Inspectorate after an assessment revealed the company was in violation of section 17 of gaming liability regulations and guidelines.
Logos for self-testing, along with login time determination, and limitation of deposits were missing from the website and mobile service pages. All of these details must be located on the operator’s pages so that players can access the information as needed.
The regulator stated that Multi Brand Gaming Ltd has taken the appropriate action to remedy the situation. Because the violation is not a serious one, the company was only reprimanded by the regulator.
LeoVegas AB Penalized
The reprimand actions come just a few months after the regulator decided to fine LeoVegas AB $238,100 for a customer due diligence breach of protocols connected to anti-money laundering regulations.
After the fine was issued, LeoVegas announced it planned 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 due diligence routines before the investigation by the regulator began.
The company stated further that every year, it is subjected to audits and reviews by local officials and external auditors. Compliance is a top priority of the brand and it continues to take action to make changes to meet regulator demands.
