With the new nationalised regulatory online gaming framework going into effect from January 1, 2019, the Swedish Gaming Authority has been busy vetting and approving operators and other input providers. Microgaming, the leading games supplier to online casinos, is the latest to get the nod.

Microgaming has been working hard over the last few months, supporting its online casinos closely with the license application process. It has been providing them with supporting documentation and information needed by the Swedish Gaming Authority. Microgaming content is live in Sweden after it introduced a bespoke solution to the online casino market via its award-winning entertainment platform. Microgaming’s operators have been able to easily and effortlessly switch to a refined solution with localized content tailored specifically for the Swedish market. The new platform provides Microgaming online casinos with a portfolio of top performing games, optimized across mobile and desktop. The portfolio includes the complete range with table games like roulette and blackjack and video poker titles as well. But the best are the video slots like immortal Romance and branded slots like Game of Thrones. Swedish players will also have access to the industry’s largest progressive jackpot network, which has paid out over €973 million to date. The Microgaming operators licensed in Sweden include PokerStars, bet365 Casino, LeoVegas, Unibet Casino and Betsson Group. More online casinos are expected to be rolled out throughout the year.

Another games supplier that has been licensed in the Swedish market is Quickspin. The slots specialist had 30 titles available when the regulated Swedish market opened on January 1. These include Sakura Fortune, Big Bad Wolf, Eastern Emeralds, and Ivan and the Immortal King. Swedish online casino players will also have access to Quickspin’s pioneering bonus provisioning and features, including Achievements, Achievements Races, Tournaments and Challenges. Daniel Lindberg, Quickspin CEO, said, “We live and breathe slots and are especially proud of our Swedish origins.”

Many of the newly licensed online casinos are operated by Nordic companies. One of them is Paf. The Swedish gambling license is another important step in Paf’s long-term strategy to grow in locally regulated markets. The Swedish Gaming Authority approved Paf’s license application for online gambling and betting on 20 December 2018. It has come into effect from 1 January 2019. Paf is a well-established name in Sweden, which has operated licensed gambling on cruise ferries in Swedish waters since 1974. It has campaigned for the regulation of the Swedish gambling market for many years. The efforts finally have fructified.
