Malta headquartered casino games developer Synot Games has embarked upon the latest strand of its global expansion, after revealing it has gained certification to enter Sweden.

Coming as the country’s regulator sends licensees a reminder on gaming responsibility, Synot has seen its entire suite of slots be given the green-light to go live on the regulated market.

Officially licensed via the Malta Gaming Authority, and certified across several European regions including the UK, Italy, Spain, Denmark and Portugal, the firm is to launch its content via agreements alongside a number a key Swedish operators. 

Ivan Kodaj, CEO of Synot Games, commented: “We are happy to announce that we have successfully completed all legal requirements in order to enter this significant market, and we can’t wait to introduce our games to Swedish players through existing and also new acclaimed operators.” 

Swedish regulator, Spelinspektionen, has this week issued a reminder to licence holders that they must submit information on gaming responsibility to the authority.

Setting a deadline of Saturday 20 July, those covered under the gambling act and the Spelinspektionen’s regulations and general advice on gaming responsibility, must submit all relevant data and information.

The regulator explained in its media statement: “According to Paragraph 21 (5), the licensee must indicate the number of self-tests performed. According to section 10 of the same regulation, a generally accepted self-test is the self-test guideline that the license holder can link to. 

“The Spelinspektionen has understood that the license holders who have a link to the self-test guide do not know the number of tests performed. These license holders can therefore instead report how many people have used the link.”

Furthermore, the Swedish authority also revealed that it’s to be visited by its Dutch counterpart the Netherlands Gambling Authority (Kansspelautoriteit) next week, in order to gain expertise during the starting blocks of its own market re-regulation.
