Only a week after launching its Ninja Casino brand in Estonia and prominent online casino operator, Global Gaming, has now announced that its SafeEnt Limited subsidiary has become one of the first to receive a Swedish iGaming license.
According to an official Tuesday press release published by European Gaming Media and Events, the Malmo-based firm explained that the five-year license from the Swedish Gambling Authority follows the recent deregulation of its home market and covers its SpelLandet and Ninja Casino brands.
