Malta-based online casino games provider Hacksaw Gaming is looking to enhance its “rapidly” growing presence in the Scandinavian market, after linking-up with Svenska Spel Sport and Casino.
The supplier, which asserts that it has gone from strength to strength over the past two years, has taken its full igaming portfolio live with the Swedish state-owned gambling operator.
Niklas Örtbrant, head of online casino at Svenska Spel Sport & Casino, said “Hacksaw Gaming is a high-quality casino provider with a host of entertaining games that we are thrilled to be able to add to our game portfolio. We look forward to working close together as partners and see the excitement that this will add to our players’ gaming experience.”
Under the terms of the agreement, Svenska Spel will gain access to Hacksaw Gaming’s entire slot portfolio, which includes titles such as Chaos Crew, Stack’em, Hop’n’Pop and latest release Wanted Dead or a Wild. The deal was facilitated via a partnership with Scientific Games and its OpenGaming platform.
Marcus Cordes, COO at Hacksaw Gaming, explained: “Hacksaw Gaming has gone from strength to strength over the past two years and we pride ourselves on working with the best in the industry, and a partnership like this with Svenska Spel Sport and Casino highlights just that.
“Our presence in the Scandinavian market has grown rapidly and we’re seeing our hit titles loved by many Swedish players. We look forward to a close collaboration and are sure that our slot content will become a firm favourite amongst Svenska Spel Sport & Casino customers.”
Last month, Svenska Spel reported that net gaming revenue during the July to September period came in at SEK 1.97bn, an increase of seven per cent from SEK 1.84bn, which the group aligned to the elimination of land-based closures. Operating profit through Q3 scored a 31 per cent uptick to close at SEK 696m (2020: SEK 531m).
The Casino Cosmopol and Vegas business segment grew 65 per cent during the time frame to contribute revenue of SEK 292m (2020: SEK 177m).
Furthermore, the company also reported that its sports and casino business area increased seven per cent during Q3 to SEK 526m (2020: SEK 490m), with the Tur lottery segment dropping two per cent to SEK 1.15bn (2020: SEK 1.18bn).
