Gaming Corps, through its subsidiary Gaming Corps Malta Ltd, has received a B2B supplier licence to operate in Sweden by the country's regulator Spelinspektionen.

Gaming Corps’ B2B licence, which was granted on 25 May, will be valid from 1 July 2023 to 30 June 2028.

The group’s application was made in March due to new regulation, which is set to come into force on 1 July, that makes it mandatory for Swedish suppliers to have one of these licences.

“It is gratifying that more and more markets are going for clearer regulation, with a focus on healthy gambling,” said Juha Kauppinen, chief executive of Gaming Corps.

“It is very gratifying that we received our Swedish licence and that we are approved five years from now.”

The change to Swedish rules comes after Spelinspektionen announced a new process for authorising B2B supplier licences earlier this year. This aims to encourage customers to play within the regulated market, by removing technology operators as an option for the black market.

The application process for new licences opened on 1 March this year. The application fee is SEK120,000.
