LeoVegas Awarded Swedish B2B Licences

Betting group LeoVegas has announced that it has been awarded three different Business to Business licences in Sweden, which will allow the company to provide games in the country effective July 1st.

The licence term will last for three years and covers LeoVegas as well as its Blue Guru Games studio. The company applied for the licencing despite holding certification in other regions, as Swedish laws have dictated that all operators only use software from Swedish-licenced game providers. The news comes as LeoVegas is working to complete its purchase of developer Push Gaming, which will expand the company's slot offering further. Push is also certified to provide games in Sweden, which is home to Leo.

Regarding the licencing, LeoVegas CEO Gustaf Hagman said, "We welcome the introduction of B2B licenses, a decisive step towards mitigating the impact of key gaming software being simultaneously provided to licensed operators and unlicensed operators targeting Swedish players.

"With the new regulations in force, it is now critical that authorities focus on those suppliers deliberately undermining the Swedish licensing system by facilitating unlicensed gaming."
