18th December, Stockholm – Slots from Swedish specialist Quickspin, a Playtech Group company, will be one of the first providers to have its games featured by operators when the regulated Swedish market opens on January 1st, 2019.

Swedish operators and players will also have access to Quickspin’s pioneering bonus provisioning and features, including Achievements, Achievements Races, Tournaments and Challenges.
Daniel Lindberg, Quickspin CEO, said the move was one of the supplier’s most significant in recent times: “Being one of the first slots to go live with Swedish players is incredibly exciting for us. As well as being our home market, we have been preparing for this opportunity with our operating partners – and are delighted to have first-mover advantage.
“We live and breathe slots and are especially proud of our Swedish origins. Our mission is to create games that players love, and we’re looking forward to bringing our games home as soon as the year begins.”
The Stockholm and Malta-based supplier is set to finish this year with a fantastic list of achievements, including the release of the ground-breaking loyalty tool ‘Challenges’, and entering Poland for the first time as part of the Playtech Group’s casino partnership with Totalizator Sportowy, the country’s largest operator.
