NetEnt has entered into an agreement with Svenska Spel Sport & Casino AB (subsidiary of AB Svenska Spel) to supply a wide selection of its award-winning online casino games as the re-regulated gambling market in Sweden opens on January 1, 2019.
Regulated markets form a key part of NetEnt’s strategy, and after a thorough qualification process, NetEnt has been selected as online casino supplier to Svenska Spel Sport & Casino AB.
On June 7th, 2018, the Swedish parliament, Riksdagen, approved the re-regulation of Sweden’s gambling market. The new legislation comes into force on January 1st, 2019, and NetEnt aims to be ready to operate together with its partners on the day of market opening.
”NetEnt was an obvious choice when selecting an online casino supplier ahead of our re-regulated market entry on January 1st, 2019. We are convinced that NetEnt will deliver casino games of the highest quality and become a very important partner for us,” says Fredrik Wastenson, MD and Head of Business Unit, Svenska Spel Sport & Casino.
Henrik Fagerlund, MD NetEnt Malta Ltd. and Chief Product Officer of NetEnt comments: “I am very pleased that Svenska Spel has selected NetEnt as supplier ahead of the Swedish market re-regulation. Svenska Spel is the most established gambling operator and the largest sponsor of sports in Sweden. We really look forward to a close collaboration to deliver best-in-class digital casino games to Svenska Spel’s customers.”
The commercial launch of NetEnt’s online games with Svenska Spel is expected in the beginning of 2019.
