Global Gaming links up with Finnplay

10 July 2019

Ninja Casino operator Global Gaming has agreed a new partnership with igaming technology and platform provider Finnplay Group.

Under the deal, which was brokered through Finnplay’s Malta-based subsidiary, Global Gaming will gain access to Finnplay’s full range of technology solutions and complete platforms for online gaming.

Finnplay’s products are licensed for use in a number of markets such as the UK, Sweden, Malta, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Denmark, Estonia and Mexico.

“Finnplay’s experience in providing online casino games and their expertise and deep understanding of the Nordic gaming markets sets them apart as an ideal business partner for us,” Global Gaming’s chief executive, Tobias Fagerlund, said.

“The cooperation creates long-term opportunities for us to continue to deliver the best gaming experience to our customers in all markets we want to operate in.”

Finnplay chief executive, Martin Prantner, added: “We’re delighted to work with the Global Gaming team, with their excellent track record of having built one of the most successful online gaming brands in the industry and their in-depth knowledge of player requirements.

“The cooperation will enable Finnplay to improve on the platform, its features and functionalities in order to create an even better and safer player experience.”

The new partnership will come as a welcome boost to Global Gaming, which has been hit hard by regulatory sanctions in Sweden during recent weeks.

Swedish gambling regulator Spelinspektionen stripped Global Gaming’s SafeEnt subsidiary of its licence in June, citing serious breaches of the country’s player protection and anti-money laundering processes.

However, Global claims that the punishment is disproportionate and it remains confident that it will prevail in an appeal.

Last month, Global failed in attempt to resume activities in the Swedish market while its appeal against the revocation of its operating licence is heard, when its request was rejected Administrative Court of Linköping.

Yesterday (July 9) Global failed to have this ruling overturned in the Administrative Court of Appeal. The operator now has the option to appeal to Sweden’s Supreme Administrative Court over the matter.
