Swedish gaming regulator, the Lotteriinspektionen, has handed out five more igaming licences as the market there prepares for relaunch on January 1.

The award, issued on Friday, December 14, and today, brings the total number of licensees to date to 31. The full current list can be viewed on the regulator website, here.

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 and, as well as rolling out its Bestbet, Bestbingo and Bestpoker brands as .com sites.
