Online casino operator Videoslots has announced the appointment of Anna Komemi as its COO.

Throughout her career, which has lasted since 2007, Komemi has held roles in various iGaming businesses globally, including Israel, Bulgaria and the Philippines.

In her most recent position as CEO/Executive Manager at Marketplay, she played a role in establishing the white-label casino company in Malta, contributing to the organisation's overall success and growth.

Ulle Skottling, Videoslots Deputy CEO, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Anna to Videoslots as her passion and commitment to the industry really shines through. She has made a significant impact within the sector over nearly two decades and will undoubtedly strengthen our team as we look to expand in 2024.” 

Komemi said: “I’m excited to be joining Videoslots and look forward to helping the business develop to its full potential. The team is made up of a fantastic group of industry professionals with great knowledge and experience and I’m confident we can achieve our ambitions as we head into the new year. 

This appointment follows the Swedish Gambling Authority's recent decision to grant a five-year extension to Videoslots, enabling the operator to continue its operations in the regulated Swedish market until the end of 2028. Videoslots has been active in Sweden since 2019, operating both its flagship brand and the more recent addition, Mr. Vegas.

However, the extension is accompanied by compliance challenges, as the Swedish Gambling Authority imposed a SEK 9m ($810,000) penalty on Videoslots due to failures related to anti-money laundering (AML) protocols. Investigations revealed vulnerabilities in monitoring customer activities, raising concerns about AML compliance.

This development follows an agreement in June 2023, where Videoslots agreed to a £2m ($2.5m) settlement with the UK's Gambling Commission for lapses in social responsibility and AML.
