NetEnt to Provide Games to Svenska Spel

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

Svenska Spel is taking on titles from NetEnt in order to shore up their online betting product ahead of increased competition when the Swedish gaming market liberalizes in January of next year.

The agreement will see NetEnt providing their slate of slots and other casino games to Svenska Spel, which is the state-run betting company within Sweden. Titles like Gonzo's Quest, Cosmic Fortune, Jack Hammer, and more will be offered, with punters able to play on both desktop and mobile devices. It's unknown if large progressive jackpot games like Mega Fortune and Arabian Nights will be part of the deal. The games are slated to be released beginning next year.

Sweden is opening up their online gaming market, bringing it more in line with other regulated countries in Europe. The country is already lucrative for offshore operators, who cater to customers in the country already.

Speaking about the deal NetEnt's Henrik Fagerlund said, "I am very pleased that Svenska Spel has selected NetEnt as supplier ahead of the Swedish market re-regulation. Svenska Spel is the most established gambling operator and the largest sponsor of sports in Sweden. We really look forward to a close collaboration to deliver best-in-class digital casino games to Svenska Spel's customers."

Svenska Spel Managing Director Fredrik Wastenson added: "NetEnt was an obvious choice when selecting an online casino supplier ahead of our re-regulated market entry on January 1st, 2019. We are convinced that NetEnt will deliver casino games of the highest quality and become a very important partner for us."
