Softswiss Game Aggregator granted Greek licence

| By Guy Parsons
Manufacturer suitability licence (A.1) will allow the company to expand its presence in the Greek market.

The Hellenic Gaming Commission (HGC) has ruled that the Softswiss Gaming Aggregator can legally provide B2B gambling services. 

The A.1 category licence allows the company to offer its services to gambling operators in Greece for a period of seven years. According to current licensing conditions, the Softswiss Game Aggregator can legally provide local operators with access to the content from 12 gaming studios. 

Earlier this year Softswiss obtained a Greek B2C gaming licence for its first partner project in the Greek igaming market. According to the legislation, the licence is intended to operate in Greece and is available to players with Greek passports, IDs and bank accounts, as well as permanent residents of the country.

The official operation on the territory of Greece became possible after the adoption of new regulations by the country government in October 2019. As a result, the Hellenic Gaming Commission (HGC) opened the application process for new online gaming licences at the end of 2020. The new rules provide for two types of operating licences: for online gambling and for online betting. The new rules provide for both B2C operating licences and B2B online gambling solution provider licences.

“Obtaining a Greek gaming licence was the result of Softswiss’ long and hard work, which over the years has accumulated extensive experience and understanding of the igaming market. Recognising the needs of our clients, we are constantly moving towards development and finding new solutions. One of them was getting local licences, which allows Softswiss to expand its presence in new regions. This summer we already opened a Greek market with a B2C gaming licence. Now with the new B2B licence local operators will be able to enjoy the benefits of the Softswiss Game Aggregator. We have a lot to offer to the local gambling industry, so I am sure there are a lot of interesting projects and partnerships ahead of us,” said Andrey Starovoitov, COO at Softswiss.
