Latest Swedish licences see Blueprint and Wazdan approved for market

Blueprint Gaming and Wazdan were amongst the latest suppliers to receive certification from Swedish regulator Spelinspektionen to continue providing their titles to operators in the nation. 

The announcement follows a flurry of certificates that have been permitted in the past few months, following the regulator’s decision in November 2022 to ensure that any B2B supplier wishing to work in the Scandinavian country has been permitted to do so. 

With legislation set to come into effect on July 1, unpermitted suppliers are in a hurry to gain access to the restructured Swedish gaming sector. 

Stating that its slot releases Rise of Atlantis and Bison Rising Megaways are “player favourites” in the Nordic region, Blueprint celebrated the certification as it will allow the company to “maintain the growth of its reach amongst these discerning demographics”. 

Thomas O’Halleran, Director of Operations at Blueprint Gaming, commented: “Sweden is an important territory for Blueprint, so we’re naturally delighted to ensure our continued commitment to supply games to this region.

“This new approval allows us to continue our growth and development of content that Swedish players will continue to enjoy and return to.”

Wazdan was equally delighted to receive its supplier licence from the Swedish Gambling Authority, stating that it “further highlights Wazdan’s commitment to regulated markets”.

Michal Imiolek, Chief Executive Officer at Wazdan, stated: “We’re delighted to have been granted a B2B supplier permit by the Swedish Gambling Authority and we thank them for a swift, smooth process. 

“It also serves as a testament to the consistent hard work of our Compliance team, making sure we’re compliant with regulatory requirements and player safety obligations in igaming markets around the globe.

“The Nordic market is an important one for us and we’ve been an active supplier in the region for some time, so we’re excited to be able to keep entertaining Swedish players for years to come.”

These certificates follow numerous announcements from the regulator over the past few months, after previously approving licences for Nolimit City, Play’n GO, Stakelogic, Jelly and more.
