Spelinspektionen Issues First Supplier Licenses

Sweden's gaming regulator Spelinspektionen has announced that they've awarded the first three gambling supplier licences in the country under the new rules that were put into place in the country.

The country is requiring all gaming suppliers to hold licences in the country effective July 1st, with the regulator trying to ensure that operators aren't using game providers that provide services to illicit offshore brands. The change was announced ahead of passage of the Enhanced Game Regulation Bill, which is still sitting in the country's parliament. The licencing process started on March 1st, meaning that the process isn't as intensive as with operator licences.

There have been 60 suppliers to apply for licences, paying an application fee of SEK 120,000. The certification is good for five years.

The first three companies to obtain the certification are Norrköping AB, Synot Games, and SkillOnNet.
