A fresh wave of certifications has seen Nolimit City, Inspired Gaming, Finnplay and Play’n Go become the latest development studios to gain Swedish B2B licences.

Coming as EveryMatrix and Thunderkick voice excitement at the growth opportunities presented via receipt of certifications, the Spelinspektionen confirmed the latest additions after suggesting it had around 60 applications to review earlier in the month.

Earlier this week, regulatory green-lights were issued to Yggdrasil; Relax Gaming; Hacksaw Gaming, and a pair of subsidiaries; Thunderkick‘s Maltese and Swedish divisions; Arland Gesellschaft Fur Informationstechnologie and EveryMatrix.

They joined SkillOnNet and Synot Games and Swedish group Programutvecklarna i Norrköping, who previously became the first three licensees.

Confirming its regulatory green-light on social media, the Evolution Group brand of Nolimit said: “we’re so stoked to keep bringing our top-quality games to Sweden. Let’s keep the good times rolling there”.

“We are most certainly a global company today … but we maintain our firm roots in Sweden to this day”

Elsewhere, Play’n Go followed up a slew of 2022 certifications, as well as an igaming permit in Connecticut in late February, by maintaining provisions in its founding country.

“Sweden is Play’n GO’s home turf,” explained Magnus Olsson, Chief Commercial Officer for Play’n Go. 

“We are most certainly a global company today, with both staff and customers all over the world, but we maintain our firm roots in Sweden to this day. It’s extra special for us to receive one of the first licences from the regulator Spelinspektionen.

“Of course, we will continue to supply the most exciting and safe casino gaming experience to Swedish players, as we have done for nearly 20 years.

“Our content today is used by operators in the Swedish market to excite and retain their players. with innovative cross-sell slots like Gerard’s Gambit on the horizon, I don’t think the Swedish market has truly seen the full might of Play’n Go yet.

“We would like to thank Spelinspektionen for the swift granting of our licence so early in the process, allowing us to continue leading from the front in supplying the safest, most entertaining casino experience for players in our home market of Sweden.”

Furthermore, EveryMatrix has also reflected on its licence by voicing optimism at the “significant opportunities” in a region where the group believes it is “perfectly positioned” to accelerate growth plans.

“It’s crucial for us to remain compliant in every market but especially our home one”

Following receipt of a five-year permit, Ebbe Groes, CEO of EveryMatrix said: “I’m delighted EveryMatrix has become one of the first providers to be licensed in Sweden under new requirements and well ahead of the deadline.

“This will further safeguard brands and their players with regulated products and services and enable us to offer our game-changing technology that is proven to significantly boost player experience and operator revenues.”

With the half decade long permits valid from July 1, 2023, Thunderkick detailed a “significant milestone” in a mission to maintain supply of its igaming portfolio to an array of key global regions.

“We’re really pleased to have been selected for a B2B permit. We look forward to working with the SGA and are thankful to them for a swift and simple process,” noted Wan Kim, Head of Compliance at Thunderkick.

“It’s crucial for us to remain compliant in every market but especially our home one, and we’re excited that we can continue showcasing our games to our fellow Swedes.”
