Sweden – Global Gaming 555’s appeal rejected by Supreme Administrative Court

By - 8 August 2019

Global Gaming 555 AB’s subsidiary SafeEnt Ltd, which operates the internet casino Ninja Casino, had its Swedish licenses for commercial online gambling and betting revoked on Monday, 17 June.

An appeal for injunctive relief was immediately submitted to the Administrative Court, as the company and its legal counsel are of the opinion that the decision lacks support in the Gaming Law and the company maintains that all license requirements are complied with. The appeal also called for temporary relief from the regulator’s decision. Today, the Supreme Administrative Court rejected the appeal for injunctive relief without providing any further explanation.

Global Gaming has appealed the regulator’s decision to revoke the license and the case is now with the Administrative Court in Linköping.

“Although we were aware that the chances of being granted injunctive relief were limited, we are, of course, disappointed to see our appeal rejected again. Our focus is now on the judicial review of the Swedish Gambling Authority’s decision that is currently taking place. We maintain that the decision is fundamentally wrong and disproportionate, and will show it during the process that is currently underway in the Administrative Court,” said Tobias Fagerlund, CEO of Global Gaming 555 AB.
