Metric Gaming confirms sportsbook launch for InAndOutBet.com, ManiSol Gaming’s Northern European focussed Pay N Play® casino and sports betting brand.
Through a 2019 partnership with Together Gaming, InAndOutBet.com’s customers benefit from some of the best casino game and content providers in the industry with the convenience of instant, hassle-free deposits and withdrawals. Metric’s modern sportsbook proposition is an exciting addition to a brand that is looking to do things differently.
Speaking about the successful launch, Metric Gaming’s CEO Martin de Knijff said:
“We have been impressed by the whole ManiSol team from the start. We are excited about the potential of InAndOutBet and grateful for the trust ManiSol have shown in us and our product to deliver an important vertical for their growth plans.
This launch, our first full sportsbook, is a significant milestone for Metric and we are eager to showcase our unique capabilities. InAndOutBet will benefit from a best-in-class sportsbook proposition that will be fully localised in each country the brand operates, with negligible incremental costs for each new configuration.
Crucially, this includes pricing autonomy for every market, every selection on the sportsbook. This is so important for international brands these days due to the conflicting taxation rules introduced internationally. This will be a significant competitive advantage over their rivals, and we’re excited to have the opportunity to contribute to ManiSol’s success.”
Erik Gilstring, COO at ManiSol Gaming added:
“At first, we were unsure of using an untested sportsbook product. However, once we met the team at Metric and saw the capabilities of their products, we were excited to have access to this new technology.
We are confident we have secured the most modern sports betting product available on the market for our customers and are pleased to have added another high quality, innovative vertical to our growing brand.”
Metric Gaming is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and holds a Class 4 Gaming Licence from Malta’s Gaming Authority.

Gammix Limited slams “outrageous and unsubstantiated” €19.7m KSA penalty
The operator vows to fight on all fronts against the Dutch regulator’s ‘unjust’ ruling.
Gammix Limited has announced its intention to contest the “outrageous and unsubstantiated” penalty handed to them by the Netherlands Gaming Authority (KSA).
In response, Gammix stated that the record €19.7m penalty imposed is based on “falsified data, extreme inaccuracy and highly suspect mathematics”.
In the ruling the regulator said that Gammix was adjudged to have allowed online gambling access for Dutch consumers, as well as not requiring age verification upon sign-up – something the company wholeheartedly disputes.
Gammix reports that accounts used to access its sites during the investigation were created in Luxembourg, with deposits made via credit card. Gammix added that such action violates the sites’ terms and conditions, specifically the provision of false information upon sign-up.
The operator asserts that the penalty, totalling €19,679,000, has been calculated using figures from a proprietary web-traffic aggregation service and a multiplier of 240 Euros per click. Gammix believes this would show turnover that doesn’t exist.
Furthermore, Gammix strongly condemns the KSA’s “mystery shopper” style of investigation, which, the operator states, is an unjust basis for this record-breaking penalty.
Phil Pearson, Director of Gammix Limited, has vowed to “fight on all fronts until it receives an apology and retraction!.
He said: “The KSA has imposed upon our company a penalty that is both outrageous and unsubstantiated. Now that we are able to talk openly about the case, we can confirm that we are fighting on all fronts as, to us, this is an extraordinary and unnecessarily heavy-handed action from a regulator that many already regarded as unapproachable.
“When we received the first notice of a possible penalty, we reached out to them to say we have blocks in place. We also asked for any information they had that was material to the investigation, to ensure we remained in compliance with all guidelines – a request they appeared to ignore. Our lawyers also approached the regulator, in writing, to gain more information, but again no response was forthcoming.
“We had enabled a block on Cloudflare for any Dutch IP, we have no Dutch language or direct Dutch payment methods, and categorically do not target Dutch traffic. If affiliates list any of our brands on Dutch-facing sites, we cannot be held responsible for those promotions. However, once players reached the end site, they would not be able to register an account.”
Pearson concluded: “This fine is an absolute joke, and we will contest this in every possible way, at every possible turn. We will only rest once this outrageous penalty has been rescinded and we have received the apology we deserve.”
