More About Endorphina
Endorphina has been publishing creative and innovative games since 2012. For the past few years, it was busy as a bee trying to enter as many regulated markets as possible. Earlier this year it spread its services across Baltic countries, Denmark and the Netherlands. In 2019, all its games were tested by GLI.
Gaming Scene in Greece
Online gaming in Greece is strictly regulated. It is one of the very few markets where players who enjoy gaming in unauthorized establishments get fined too. The entire industry is regulated by the Hellenic Gaming Commission, which covers all types of gaming available. This means casino games (including slots), bingo, poker, all sorts of sports bets, lotteries, and even social gaming. Licenses are issued for 7 years. All regulated casinos are obliged to own a local domain, ending with “.gr”. Furthermore, licensed companies must have offices in Greece, and an EU or EEA Member State.
According to the official stats provided by HGC, in 2019 the gross gaming revenue (GGR) was €437 million. One year later, in 2020, the GGR reached €540 million. Pretty impressive for a country where online gambling was banned back in 2002. However, the authorities quickly noted the increasing demand, and first decided on a state monopoly. The market blossomed after the monopoly was declared unlawful in 2013 by the Court of Justice of the European Union.
