Playson secures supplier licence in Greece

| By Robert Fletcher
Casino games and software developer Playson has secured a manufacturer’s suitability licence from the Hellenic Gaming Commission (HGC) in Greece.

The licence will enable Playson to supply its content to the newly regulated Greek market and sign agreements with licensed operators in the country.

Playson’s titles include Solar Queen, Wolf Power: Hold and Win and Legend of Cleopatra Megaways.

“We are delighted to receive a licence that ensures a continuation and expansion of our hit games within the newly regulated territory of Greece, a fast-growing market at the heart of a crucial region for Playson,” Playson’s general counsel Andrei Andronic said.

“We have an appetite for regulated markets and we are delighted to add a new license to our portfolio. This latest news demonstrates our credentials for providing the best and safest games to our partners.”

The Greek licensing system opened in October of last year, after the country’s parliament passed the gambling reform bill in 2019.

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.     

Last week, bet365 and Play’n Go were issued operating and supplier licences, respectively, while Betsson has also secured licence.
