Swedish gaming regulator, the Lotteriinspektionen, has handed out five more igaming licences as the market there prepares for relaunch on January 1.
On Friday, L&L Europe was awarded a licence for online gambling in Sweden and is set to offer a wide range of .com and .se brands, including Funcasino, Karlcasino and Yeticasino on both domains.
Today, licences were confirmed for Bayton, Dumarca Gaming, Genesis Global and Enlabs.
Bayton, a subsidiary of Cityviews, has been licensed for sites including Rubyfortune, Jackpotcitycasino and Spincasino, all on the .se domain.
Dumarca Gaming, a subsidiary of the JPJ Group, will offer Vera&John and Intercasino brands in the re-regulated market having been awarded a licence.
Simon Wykes, CEO of Jackpotjoy Operations, welcomed the news. He said: “Ensuring that our gaming platform is fully compliant with all of Sweden’s licensing requirements has been a challenge which our technology team has successfully handled within a very short time frame.
“We now look forward to addressing the opportunity that a regulated and licensed Swedish market will present in 2019.”
The final two licences in the latest trance were for Sweden-facing operator Genesis Global, which will launch a number of brands in the country – including Casinojoy, Casinocruise, Casinogods and Genesiscasino sites – and for Enlabs, a subsidiary of Latvian operator Optibet.
Enlabs picked up a licence for online gambling and betting which will see the operator launch Optibet.com and Optibet.se, as well as rolling out its Bestbet, Bestbingo and Bestpoker brands as .com sites.
