Spelinspektionen rejects Ninja Casino domain transfer

Stockholm-listed Global Gaming AB has had its latest attempt to revive its flagship Ninja Casino property within Sweden rejected by gambling inspectorate Spelinspektionen.

Spelinspektionen governance is reported to have blocked the transfer of Ninja Casino’s SE domain to Global Gaming marketing partner Viral Interactive.

A marketing services provider, Viral Interactive had applied to secure the Ninjacasino.se domain under the management of its Spelinspektionen online gambling B2C licence.

A Spelinspektionen judgement enforced outright that no Ninjacasino related domain could be launched within Sweden, as part of its sanctioned market suspension of Global Gaming AB and its subsidiary partners.

Despite its rejection, Viral Interactive will be allowed to appeal Spelinspektionen judgement.

Global Gaming Chief Executive Tobias Fagerlund would issue a corporate statement, detailing Spelinspektionen actions as illegitimate as its subsidiary Safe Ent the operating company of Ninja Casino awaits a further review of its licence revocation by Sweden’s Administrative Court of Appeal.

“The Swedish Gambling Authority ‘s decision to revoke SafeEnt’s licence has not yet gained legal force and can therefore not be used as an argument” Fagerlund stated in his communication.

Global Gaming AB continues to seek injunctive relief of its indefinite Swedish market suspension, sanctioned Spelinspektionen in 2019 on the grounds of ‘serious customer care failures’ related to KYC, care-of-duty and AML compliance.

Posting a November trading statement, Global Gaming governance reported that 2019 net losses had totalled SEK 40 million (€4 million), due to the firm’s home market withdrawal.
