Yggdrasil approved for Greek market entry

| By
Online gambling content supplier Yggdrasil has been granted a supplier licence in Greece by the Hellenic Gaming Commission.

The licence allows Yggdrasil to launch its game portfolio to players in the jurisdiction, under its newly revised online gaming regulations.

Reforms to the country’s regulations were passed by its parliament in October 2019, before being submitted to the European Commission in January 2020. The licensing process subsequently began in October 2020.

A wide selection of Yggdrasil’s games are now available to operators in the Greek market.

The supplier said it has already partnered with several major Greek operators, and further details about the deals will be announced in the coming months.

Björn Krantz, chief of global market operations at Yggdrasil, said: “It goes without saying that Yggdrasil is yet again walking the talk and we continue to deliver on our regulatory market strategy.

“To obtain the Greek licence – and to capitalise on our ISO/IEC27001 accreditation – is yet another milestone and achievement from the great team we have here at Yggdrasil. We would like to thank all local partners for their support in making a difference with Yggdrasil and our best-in-class portfolio of innovative games in Greece.”

The supplier joins other such as Playson and Play’n Go in receiving its supplier licence, allowing it to join the market where operators such as Bet365 and Betsson have also been licensed this year.
