Octoplay secures Swedish licence
The licence will enable Octoplay to launch its games such as Pearly Shores, Heavy Anchor and Hot Harvest with operators that are also approved to offer online gambling in the country.
Octoplay said the latest approval would complement its existing certifications in the UK, Malta and Romania.
“We are working towards having a licence in every regulated market on the planet. Sweden was a natural early choice and has been a key target since the company was founded,” Octoplay’s director of business development Ralitsa Georgieva said.
“We are proud to have secured the necessary approvals to supply our slots to Swedish casinos and to offer players there the excitement of our games for the first time.”
The latest licence comes after Spelinspektionen last week approved eight additional supplier licences for providers who wish to continue offering their services to operators after 1 July.
The gaming software licences are to be a requirement for any B2B business who continues its relationships with operators in Sweden.
The new requirement – which was passed by the Swedish legislature in November – is intended to help throttle the development of the black market in Sweden by restricting the unlicensed operator sector’s access to providers.
