West Virginia is preparing to launch a state-regulated industry later this summer by starting to issue interim permits for sports betting and GeoComply Solutions, a leading geolocation supplier, has become the first company to earn approval for West Virginia Sports Betting. West Virginia will be among the first states to join Nevada in the sports betting marketplace.

David Biggs, the Chief Executive Officer at GeoComply Solutions, confirmed the preliminary go-ahead in a press release on Wednesday, 8th August, 2018, commenting that West Virginia has been very proactive in their goal to become among the first states to introduce legal online sports wagering and they are grateful for the support they have shown them in the licensing process.

Biggs went on to say that they are now ready to supply compliance-grade geolocation solutions to the local operators and partners in the West Virginia to get online sports wagering up and running in the state.

The new license will enable GeoComply Solutions to provide its geolocation compliance solution to assist online gambling operators in making certain that they are only taking wagers from consumers who are located in the state.

West Virginia has not yet legalized sports betting and it will be necessary for the interim license to obtain full approval from the West Virginia Lottery.

Leading online gambling operator, Kindred Group, has announced that it has made a formal request to The Swedish Gambling Authority for a license for the operation of online betting and gaming services in Sweden.

The operator is hoping that it will be granted a successful application so as to enable it to finally compete on equal terms in Sweden and strengthen its commitment to the Scandinavian nation.

Since its launch twenty years ago, Kindred Group (previously Unibet Group) has campaigned for a modern gambling regulation in Sweden, including providing consumers with a safe and secure gambling environment. In June of this year, the Swedish Parliament voted to re-regulate the gambling market.

Kindred’s request is in line with the Group’s long term strategy to operate in locally licensed markets.

Hendrik Tjarrnstrom, Chief Executive Officer of Kindred Group, commented that it is very satisfying that they finally can take this important step towards fair and equal terms within the Swedish market, competing on the same level as other operators. He added that Kindred has always applied great effort to understanding what their customers want, giving them a great experience in a safe and secure environment with the highest responsible gambling standards.

Tjarnstrom went on to say that what is even more pleasing is that they can extend their commitment to Swedish society through different sponsorships and partnerships.

He also said that in the days following the Parliament’s ruling in June, they have demonstrated their ambition by signing a twelve-year sponsorship deal with the Swedish Elite Football Association.
