The Swedish regulator has granted its first three licences for gaming software, which will start on July 1.


SkillOnNet and Synot Games are among the three companies which Spelinspektionen says have been granted the accreditation.

Sweden’s Ministry of Finance first presented the proposal in January last year, which makes it mandatory for suppliers who work in Sweden to obtain a gaming software licence.

The decision to introduce licensing was subsequently made in November by the Riksdag and aims to reduce and discourage illegal gambling.

And applications for gaming software licences opened at the start of March, with the first three now awarded.
