William Hill’s brands to pay fees to Swedish regulators
Mr Green operates with its own name, while William Hill and other Swedish gaming brands work under Evoke.
Twice in a calendar year all the licensed Swedish brands should report all the data, for example the earnings. Everything must be applied on the twentieth day of the month.
It is known that Mr Green and Evoke did not submit the needed data. They explain that they faced technical difficulties while submitting but still managed to do it which the regulator did not get. So last year in September Spelinspektionen started supervising Mr Green and Evoke.
Companies submitted the needed information on December 22, 2021 and then after the request of Spelinspektionen provided all additional information this year on March 14.
Though both of the brands stated that all the data had already been submitted. They said that they had problems and there were some difficulties with terms as well.
Companies explained that in cases of some questions that had 2 parts they submitted 1 total answer instead of 2.
Though Swedish brands explained the reason for the missing data, the regulator still states that they did not provide data explaining that difficulties are not excusable.
The regulator says according to Spelinspektionen there were missing reports for some time now and on 5 various occasions, and it was proven that needed data was never submitted.
Both brands noted that problems are being acted on to be solved. Eventually it was decided that violations were worth the penalty fees with Mr Green to pay 1 million SEK and Evoke 450 thousand SEK.
