Swedish betting group Svenska Spel announced this week that they've signed a content deal with Yggdrasil Gaming and will add the developer's games to their casino as a result.
The agreement will see the state-sanctioned betting site being able to compete with the liberalized market when it launches in January 2019. Svenska will get the full suite of slots from Yggdrasil, including Vikings Go to Hell, Easter Island, and Jokerizer. The games can be played on computers or smartphones, and the quality of the titles has grown immensely over the past year or so.
Commenting on the agreement Svenska Spel Managing Director Fredrik Wastenson said, "Yggdrasil was an obvious choice when selecting a casino gaming solutions partner. The innovative offering performs well in regulated markets and we are confident they will attract a large following in Sweden."
Yggdrasil CEO Fredrik Elmqvist added: "We're really happy to have agreed terms with Svenska Spel ahead of the Swedish market regulating next year."
"Our strategy to expand our regulated market footprint is ahead of schedule and demand from operators across a wide variety of regulated and newly regulating markets is rapidly growing. We will be ready to go well ahead of the January 2019 launch date."
No timetable for the integration of the games was available as of press time.
