Current Swedish monopolist Svenska Spel is eager to debut its online casino after being named among the first licensees for the re-regulated market, the firm’s chief compliance officer Helene Cedertorn said:

We are of course happy to have been awarded licenses. It means we can continue our preparations for the new Swedish gambling market according to plan, and that we will finally be able to compete on equal terms.

It also means that we will have licences for games that we have not previously been able to offer to our customers, such as online casino and horse race betting.

Above all, the new gambling legislation means we are at last getting an orderly gambling market in Sweden. We will have a level playing field for gambling operators, increased revenues for the state, and clear rules to protect customers against excessive gambling thanks to stronger and better consumer protection.
