Softswiss obtains Greek gaming licence

| By Nosa Omoigui
Software development company Softswiss has been granted a Greek gaming supplier licence by the Hellenic Gaming Commission (HGC).

In addition for Softswiss becoming available to those with Greek passports and bank accounts, the license allows the company to move forward with a partnership with operator N1 Casino within the country.

Greece becomes the latest market that Softswiss has gained access to, after it was granted a Nigerian gaming licence earlier this year.

Softswiss founder Ivan Montik said: “It’s a tremendous landmark and an amazing achievement for us to receive the Greek gaming licence to be able to do business in a regulated national market and expand our reach. It’s even more exciting to be officially announcing our very first client for the Greek region to be N1 Casino Greece.

“We’ve recently made strategic moves to fast-developing markets like Nigeria and are now establishing ourselves more in the European continent. It is opening new horizons for us and we’re ready to go for it. Softswiss is not only planning on doing business in Greece but also making a positive impact through charity and corporate social sustainability efforts in the country.”

As well as branching out into different markets, Softswiss’ affiliate platform Affilka recently expanded to include sports betting.

A gambling reform bill was passed in Greece in 2019, before HGC started the online gaming application process in 2020.

The reforms led to strict conditions for potential operators, such as €2 cap on spins for online slots, a three second spin minimum and a maximum win of €70,000 per round, though earlier proposals to ban RNG games entirely were rejected.
