An administrative case was opened against Google in late November after repeated complaints were made concerning the search engine displaying "prohibited internet resources" which include tens of thousands of online gambling domains
Roskomnadzor CEO Alexander Zharov said that the regulator has "repeatedly explained these legal requirements" to Google, which in response said that its activities were in compliance with Russian law. However, Alexander Zharov shut down Google's claims saying that seeing the prohibited sites in the search results was "irrefutable proof filtering is not carried out."
Zharov stated that Roskomnadzor wouldn't hesitate to open further administrative cases against Google if they continue to operate outside of Russian law. Russian legislators were discussing the increase of financial penalties for these offensives, in order to make them more deterrent. According to a report, one proposal could penalize companies 1% of their annual revenue in Russia. Googles Russian revenue was calculated to be $640 million in 2017, making the potential fine being around the $6.4 million mark.
The final license was handed out to the Malta-based Mandalorian Technologies Ltd, which plans to offer strictly online casino games through Noaccountcasino.com and Prankcasino.com.
Spelinspektionen has now issued 23 licenses across the country, with the chances of many more to come. They recieved around 70 applications, which they plan to review and approve before the start of January. While it took a while for the Swedish government to get to this stage, they have been applauded for having a fiarly reasonable set of rules governing their new online market.
