Sjöberg had been a director of the company since May 15, 2018, and boasts 20 years of international experience in the gaming industry. According to the Betsson website, he holds 275,000 shares in the firm.

A company statement read: “Tristan Sjöberg has resigned from Betsson AB’s Board of Directors at his own request. The reason is that he is in a legal dispute with Swedish tax authorities regarding tax liability.”

Last month, Betsson embarked on a search for a new CFO after Kaaren Hilsen announced she is to resign following less than a year spent in the job.

The company’s third-quarter results will be announced on October 24, 2018.
