Evolution partners with Svenska Spel for new Swedish market

Evolution Gaming has announced that it is to partner with Svenska Spel, for the provision of a live casino solution, in the new Swedish gambling market.

Selected by the state owned gambling enterprise for the re-regulated market, Evolution details that the new live casino service is to go live “the moment Sweden’s new gambling law comes into effect on 1 January 2019”.

Fredrik Wastenson, Svenska Spel Sport & Casino managing director, commented: “We naturally carried out a thorough market review with regard to our choice of Live Casino partner. We are confident that Evolution Gaming offers the very best solution for Svenska Spel and its current and future players.

“Evolution’s world-class Live Casino will mean not only the best possible choice of live games for our players, but also highly enjoyable and secure gaming experiences.”

Svenska Spel, including the Lotto, Triss, Stryktipset, Oddset, Vegas and Casino Cosmopol brands, is to have access to the full portfolio of Evolution live gaming titles, including exclusive poker variants and exclusive side bets.

Martin Carlesund, CEO at Evolution Gaming, stated: “This a truly groundbreaking agreement between our two companies, both of which are very deeply rooted in Sweden. Sweden is a key market for Evolution, and we are honoured to have been selected by such a big name in that market as Svenska Spel.”

Sebastian Johannisson, Evolution’s chief commercial officer, added: “We are proud of our market leading Live Casino solutions and content, and we are confident of their ability to bring excitement and joy to existing and new Svenska Spel customers.

“We are looking forward very much to 2019 and to helping Svenska Spel maximise its opportunities in the new re-regulated market.”
