Disrupt Entertainment Handed Swedish Ban
The newest Curaçao-based online gambling provider, Disrupt Entertainment, has been prohibited from offering its services in Sweden by the Spelinspektionen, the Swedish Gambling Inspectorate.
The Spelinspektionen made the ruling after it launched a supervisory case into Disrupt Entertainment based on its suspicions that the Malta-based company was providing its services in Sweden without a license.
Although Disrupt Entertainment has an online gambling license in Curacao, it is not licensed or registered with the Swedish Gambling Inspectorate.
After completing its investigation, the Gambling Commission found Disrupt Entertainment guilty of the accusations leveled against it.
The company was found targeting Swedish customers by offering information in Swedish and conditions for game participation in Swedish on its CasinoSinners website.
This contravened the terms of the country’s gaming act, which stated that ‘if a company provides information and conditions for participation in Swedish, it can be seen as targeting the national market and its consumers.’
The Gaming Inspectorate assesses that Disruptive Entertainment Limited N.V. provides games in Sweden because the company on the website casinosinners.com has information in Swedish and that the company has the conditions for participation in the game in Swedish. The Swedish Gaming Inspectorate considers, with regard to consumer protection and to guarantee gaming safety, that it is important that the decision is complied with immediately. The decision must therefore apply immediately.
