Spelinspektionen issues two new fines in bonus offer crack down

Swedish regulator, Spelinspektionen, has continued its crack-down on non-compliant operators offering recurring bonus offers on their sites after issuing two new fines to AG Communications and Genesis Global.

In its most recent investigation, the gaming regulator has found that the two operators had been in contravention of the country’s gaming laws by informing their customers about the possibility of receiving recurring bonuses on their website.

In response to infractions, Spelinspektionen has issued AG Communications Limited with a warning note and a penalty fee of SEK 500,000 (£41,800) while Genesis Global Limited faces a penalty of SEK 1,700,000 (£142,000).

Gaming legislation in Sweden dictates that an offer of more than one bonus from an operator is sufficient for the license holder to have violated the state’s gaming laws.

AG Communications currently offers games on the websites karamba.com, hopa.com, mrplay.com, goliathcasino.com, spinson.com, magicred.com, toptally.com, barbadoscasino.com, lanadas.com, casinoluck.com, vikingslots.com, primeslots.com and slotjerry.com

Genesis provides games on the sites casinojoy.com, spel.com, casinocruise.com, spinit.com, genesiscasino.com, sloty.com, vegashero, com, pelaa.com and casinogods.com

This is the second time that Genesis has been sanctioned by Spelinspektionen, after initially receiving an official warning and fine of SEK 4,000,000 back in March for self-exclusion failings.
