BGaming receives Greek supplier licence

| By Marese O'Hagan
BGaming has received a Type A1 supplier licence from the Hellenic Gaming Commission, which will allow it to supply its games to operators in Greece.

Greek operators can now offer games from BGaming’s portfolio, which includes Fruit Million, Aloha King Elvis and Elvis Frog in Vegas.

“We’re delighted to be awarded a licence by the Hellenic Gaming Commission and be able to provide our content to this regulated market,” said Marina Ostrovtsova, executive director at BGaming.

“It is a great step for the studio. BGaming will come along on our regulatory market journey.”

The process to obtain a licence in Greece opened in October 2020, one year after Greece’s parliament passed reforms to its gambling law in October 2019. Two types of supplier licences were made available – one to offer online betting technology and another to offer online games of chance.

The new regulatory system requires operators and suppliers to abide by strict operating conditions. Online slots – which an earlier draft of the regulations had sought to ban – are capped at €2 per spin, with a three-second spin minimum and a maximum win of €70,000 per round.     

BGaming is the latest in several suppliers that received licences in Greece this year. These include Yggdrasil, SoftSwiss, iSoftBet and Oryx.
