In a recent interview conducted by CalvinAyre.com at Vienna International Gaming Expo, Yoav referred to himself a medium sized operator and said “we are operating on Maltese and UK licenses currently because the tax and regimes in places like Czech Republic don’t make sense for us”.
He confirmed Holland, Sweden and Germany are markets he’s keeping his eyes on for the future, assuming the tax will be reasonable. However, he described keeping track of a variety of regulatory regimes around the EU as “a big headache” and said he would prefer one unified license for the EU, but recognizes this is not likely to happen. “But that’s my wish”, he said.
He pointed out how monitoring so many markets and regulations takes away from innovation and addressing customer needs, two of the most important focuses for his organization.
