on Wednesday, announced the Spelinspektionen to distribute rekordböter to the Kindreds, subsidiaries Spooniker. The company shall pay a penalty of 100 million, have been violated the bonus rules.
the Kindred immediately announced it will appeal the decision to the supreme administrative court. It is quite likely the case, going all the way up in the court of appeal before it is completed.
this is prepared for a drawn-out process, which he believes could have been avoided. He criticizes the regulatory framework to which companies and Spelinspektionen have to respond to for the regulation of the gaming market on January 1, 2019, and says that the law is not clear. He said that by 2018 sought in a dialogue in order to get guidance and interpretations on the subject of authority, which is to avoid the risk that they ”go wrong”.
" The dialogue, from the gaming authority has been and is the operators (companies) has a test of what is accepted or not, which, in turn, brought with it a very large sanktionsavgifter of the government. Our interpretation is that, instead of having a dialogue to try it out in the courts. It is an unfortunate fact, "says Tjärnström, who also criticizes the fact the system of sanctions, in which the amount of the fine is linked to the games' revenue, and, in his opinion, will be disproportionate.
He said that it is difficult to speculate on the risk that the company will eventually have to cough up 100 million of the notes, however, that none of the 20 century, the decision on the sanktionsavgifter that Spelinspektionen issued have the force of law.
the Courts were able to focus on the more important things to do. This shows that we had been to have a dialogue, " he said.
the Companies have been criticized for their aggressive advertising and try to attract the customers.
which of the licensed companies are only allowed to do so once again. The company does not have a licence in Sweden, however, the market itself, with some bonuses as well. It is the opinion Tjärnström will give them an advantage, and counter to the government's ambition is to get as many of the licensed companies that are possible in the system.
According to the Tjärnström is now in the so-called " kanaliseringsgraden, the percentage of customers who are playing at is licensed and tax-paying companies in the world. In an early assessment of the estimated Spelinspektionen channeling for more than 90 per cent, but the number has gone down.
to calculate, because it is not possible to get a clear picture of just how big the black the gaming market is.
" the Channeling are greater in sports than in online casino. I'd like to think that the total of the day, rather it is somewhere between 70 and 80 percent, respectively. What is worrying is that the trend is weakening, " he said, and the fear is that the Swedish market is already 15 months after the new legislation is on its way to the secret.
" The customers who are now locked out of the licensed market by the ”a break from the game” is only a mouse-click away from the black market. There is a risk that the most vulnerable customers to end up there, and you have no control of it at all, " says Tjärnström, who would like to see a revision of the licensing system, where as sub-contractor to the licensee of the need to have a so-called B2B e-license.
all of a Sudden there are hardly any events to play at.
the Kindreds share plunged sharply on the stockholm stock exchange, even before the virusutbrottet. From a year ago to have been worth about $ 100 each on Friday, down more than $ 20.
Approximately one-half of the company's revenue is derived from betting on sporting events. In the last few days, the company has been able to offer the game in a few soccer leagues in the world, as well as other sports, such as racing (racing), billiards, table tennis, esport, and chess, among other things.
at the same time as the Tjärnström says that the game industry is less affected than many of the others, he admits that the crisis is causing the problems, not the least because of the summer's big cash cow, the football CHAMPIONSHIP, has been postponed until next summer, and the team's inception in the first place for the month of June.
" We don't have any measurements yet, but it is in this context, we adjust the expense that we have of our clients. This is something that we are very active at the moment, " says Tjärnström and the notes to the income from the CHAMPIONSHIPS is likely to happen, however, until next year.
" yes, Yes, because most of our revenue is related to sports betting it will have an effect on the revenue, so it is possible, of course, is not to be ruled out.
" we think We have got off to a good start and I hope to be the premiere league and the premier league will be up and running in June, but right now, we just have to wait and follow the progress.<
