The business obtained a permit for its Joi Gaming subsidiary in November 2021 for its online casino jacks.nl and has since received two further approvals for Joi I and Joi II.

The KSA notes that while these companies are affiliated with Joi Gaming, it is not yet known which domain names will be operational in the kingdom. JVH, whose recent permits are the company’s 14th and 15th, operates 85 physical real-money casinos throughout the country under the Jack’s Casino, Flamingo Casino, and Flash Casino brands. According to casinonieuws.nl, the latter of these will occupy one of the group’s newest licenses, as indicated by Eric Olders, CEO of JVH gaming and entertainment.
