Sweden to Open B2B License Applications Next Year

Sweden's gaming regulator will open the country's application process for business-to-business supply licenses, which will open up the number of games that'll be available to casinos throughout the country.

There currently isn't a law that allows for B2C software being licensed in the country, but a bill that would allow for that is currently working its way through the process. Regulator Spelinspektonen is seemingly confident that the bill will progress, and is working its way through the process as if it is a given. The verbiage in the bill would see the law go into place on July 1st, 2023, but applications will open up on March 1st, 2023.

Proposed rules for the applications would be a fee of SEK120,000, and Spelinspektonen said they expect to issue about 70 B2C licenses during the initial wave.

In a statement regarding the matter Spelinspektonen said, "The purpose of the license requirement for gaming software is to discourage illegal gambling. Unlicensed game operators must not be able to use suppliers who manufacture, provide, install and/or change game software for game operators who have a license in Sweden."
