Softswiss has received a Manufacturer Stability Licence from the Hellenic Gaming Commission (HGC), granting the supplier permission to expand its presence in the Greek market.
The A.1 Category licence, which pertains to a company’s ability to provide B2B gambling services in the country, has been awarded to the game aggregator for a period of seven years. The licence permits Softswiss to legally provide local operators with content from 12 gaming studios.
Earlier this year, Softswiss was granted a similar licence in the B2C market, allowing the company to make a foray into the Greek iGaming industry. The certification allows it to market gaming content at those with Greek passports.
On the two licence approvals, Andrey Starovoitov, COO at Softswiss , commented: “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.
“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.”
Fresh regulations were adopted within Greece in October 2019, which allowed the HGC to open the application process for new gaming licences at the end of 2020. A key change to the regulations, of which Softswiss has taken advantage, permits both B2C operating licences and B2B provider licences.
The gaming aggregator’s content portfolio is far broader than the licence allows, holding over 11,000 games from 170 gaming studios worldwide.
