Cyber Police close an 80-employee IT company developing online casinos. Looks like it’s Soft2bet
The Cyber Police of Ukraine reported on the cessation of the company, which earned money by creating online casinos on a turnkey basis. It is reported that the minimum package of services provided by this company costs $20,000. The editorial staff of AIN.UA suggests that it may be Soft2bet.
The cyber police found that the members of the criminal group had created a company, allegedly for the development of web resources and online games in Ukraine. In fact, they provided services for the creation, technical support, and customer service of online casinos. The company has also developed bespoke gambling platforms.
The customer paid $20,000 and received the ownership of the online casino with its constant support. For an additional $100,000, the company set up Internet marketing to promote the resource on the network and attract new users. According to preliminary data, the company’s monthly income was over $ 500,000.
The police have found over 20 online casinos, the developers and administrators of which was this company. They are now blocked. The user base of their web resources consisted of about 500,000 people.
Law enforcement officers searched the office of the developer company, seized computer equipment, mobile phones, draft documents, and money for examination.

According to the law, until the investigation is completed, law enforcement officers cannot disclose any names and names of suspected legal entities. Therefore, the release does not say what company it is. It is only known that the office is located in Kyiv. The company’s staff consisted of more than 80 IT professionals.

Based on the photos, we can assume that this company is Soft2bet. The company bills itself as a European product tech company in the field of online entertainment, developing turnkey online casinos on its engine. In the Soft2bet portfolio, there are 7 Stars Partners (7SP), online casinos Malina Casino, YoYo Casino, and Buran Casino, etc.
Soft2bet offices are located in Bulgaria, Serbia, Portugal as well as in Cyprus and Malta. The company has employees in Kyiv (you can find them on LinkedIn), but the Kyiv office is not mentioned on the Soft2bet website.
However, it exists and is located at 14V Vasylkivska St., in the business center Stend. The company is actively hiring people in Kyiv. There are 13 job openings on DOU.
The editor of AIN.UA sent a request to Soft2bet but has not received a response at the time of publication.
