Swedish online casino games developer, Quickspin, will be among the first providers to have its award-winning portfolio of games offered by operators on January 1, 2019, when the Scandinavian nation‘s re-regulated gambling market opens.
In June this year, the Riksdag (Swedish Parliament) approved the government’s proposal to introduce a new licensing system to the Swedish market. The new Gambling Act (SFS 2018:1138) (pdf), means that anyone operating in the Swedish gambling market must have an authorized license. The new law will apply to games in Sweden and games over the internet that target the Swedish market.
According to a press release…
Thirty of the Stockholm-based game studio’s most popular titles will be made available to players by way of its operator partners. Some of the provider‘s successful video slots include Second Strike, Wild Chase, Phoenix Sun, Dragon Shine and Sakura Fortune.
Access to features:
Chief Executive Officer for Quickspin, Daniel Lindberg reportedly said that the move was one of the developer’s most significant in recent times.
Lindberg added, “Being one of the first slots to go live with Swedish players is incredibly exciting for us. As well as being our home market, we have been preparing for this opportunity with our operating partners since August this year – and are delighted to have first-mover advantage.
“We live and breathe slots and are especially proud of our Swedish origins. Our mission is to create games that players love, and we’re looking forward to bringing our games home as soon as the year begins.”
The supplier looks set to wrap up 2018 with an impressive list of achievements, including the July release Eastern Emeralds being shortlisted for the prestigious award of ‘Game of year 2018’ in the EGR Operator Awards. The game is one of Quickspin’s most successful releases this year and boasts its highest-ever multiplier.
