Earlier this week we reported on how Sweden approved of nine more gaming licences for suppliers in the country. Today, developer Play'n GO announced that they've been granted a licence for continued offering in the market.
The country is moving toward a July 1st, 2023 deadline for casinos in the country to only use licenced providers of games, thus making this an important step for Play'n GO, which is also based in Sweden. The company is known for its extensive pipeline of video slots, with the group having put out games seemingly every week or two. To date, there are over 300 games in the company's library.
In addition to Europe, Play'n GO has been expanding into the United States, having launched in the states of West Virginia, New Jersey, Michigan, and Connecticut.
Commenting on the licence, Play'n GO CCO Magnus Olsson said, "Sweden is Play'n GO's home turf. We are most certainly a global company today, with both staff and customers all over the world, but we maintain our firm roots in Sweden to this day. It's extra special for us to receive one of the first licences from the regulator Spelinspektionen.
"Of course, we will continue to supply the most exciting and safe casino gaming experience to Swedish players, as we have done for nearly 20 years.
"Our content today is used by operators in the Swedish market to excite and retain their players. with innovative cross-sell slots like Gerard's Gambit on the horizon, I don't think the Swedish market has truly seen the full might of Play'n GO yet.
"We would like to thank Spelinspektionen for the swift granting of our licence so early in the process, allowing us to continue leading from the front in supplying the safest, most entertaining casino experience for players in our home market of Sweden."
The Swedish ramp-up to July 1st continues. I wonder if there's going to be any legit companies that don't get a license here.
