Award will allow the company to expand its global dominance by stepping into the Greek market.


The whole process started in 2019 when Greece decided to make changes in its regulatory framework. In October of the same year, Greece’s Parliament and Ministry of Finance went a step further and submitted a document to the European Commission outlining new regulations.

At the beginning of 2021, SoftGamings made an application to the Hellenic Gaming Commission (HGC) for the A1 licence in Greece to. On 1 June 2021, SoftGamings received its Manufacturer A1 Suitability licence which allows the company to offer its services and products to regulated and licensed operators in Greece.

Irina Sazonova, SoftGamings’ director of partnerships, says the company is extremely proud of the licence award, adding that SoftGamings is happy to continue with its global expansion. 

The Greek market has experienced significant growth in online gaming over recent years, and becoming a licensed provider in Greece would be a valuable milestone to open up new opportunities,” she said.   
SoftGamings considers Greece a fruitful market in the igaming industry, something that will hopefully prove correct after this latest expansion. The Hellenic igaming landscape looks promising, with its market growing steadily over the last couple of years. Furthermore, the new regulatory system will significantly contribute to the industry’s sustainable growth.
