As reported recently, one of the leading iGaming suppliers in the industry, Wazdan is finally expanding to the massive Nordic gambling market. This news came shortly after the company announced its new slot games and its latest partnership deals. After being certified by the Swedish Gaming Authority, the company can finally start offering its products to Swedish gaming operators.
Before being fully certified in the Nordic nation, this Malta-based online casino content supplier has already enabled some of its games via its existing partners operating in this region including Kindred Hero Gaming and Mr Green. Nonetheless, thanks to being fully certified by the Swedish Gambling Authority, Wazdan can finally expand its reach in the Scandinavian market.
Following the news about receiving its Swedish gaming certificate, the company’s officials stated in their official press release that Wazdan is thrilled to be able to legally strengthen its position in this highly prominent Swedish market. As previously mentioned, the company has already offered some of its games to Sweden-based operators. One of the most recently signed deals with Hero Gaming which become active on the 3rd of July enabled Wazdan to go live across the company’s five casino brands including Speedy Casino, Speedy Bet, Betser, CasiTabi, and Casino Heroes.
Swedish Gambling Authority Started Accepting More License Applications
Before the country’s gaming authority named Spelinspektionen approved Wazdan’s license application, it has also approved a number of other applications from foreign companies in order to relax the Sweden gaming market and possibly make it more accessible to privately-owned companies. This news came earlier this year following Spelinspektionen finally starting to accept more license applications under the country’s new law.
Before the new law was conducted, the country’s betting and gambling activities of all kinds had been fully state-owned. For this reason, all of the country’s gambling and betting facilities were monopolized by the state as stated by the European Gambling Commission. Nonetheless, under EU laws related to gambling facilities, players residing in Sweden had been offered the opportunity to play at online casino facilities for some time until the country’s government decided to follow Denmark’s steps, put an end to the monopoly over gambling activities and open its gaming market to privately-owned operators and companies.
This move naturally benefits both players and game producers. Actually, the main goal of Sweden’s gambling re-regulations and new laws is to provide safer gaming experiences to its consumers through game security and consumer protection. Hence, the majority of the games offered to Swedes allows them to easily pause their gaming sessions while the country also promised stiffer money punishments for all sorts of illegal gambling activities and for any kind of match-fixing.
Wazdan as One of the Industry’s Leaders
As one of the industry’s leaders, Wazdan is best known for its state-of-the-art slot games which thanks to being developed using the HMTL5 technology run smoothly across all gaming channels. The company’s gaming library includes more than one hundred slot games with several titles being extremely successful such as Lucky Fish, Juicy Reels, Great Book of Magic Deluxe, Los Muertos, Magic Stars 3, Football Mania Deluxe, Black Hawk Deluxe, Lucky Reels, Space Spins and many other. All in all, the company will continue its expansion in European regulated markets especially after being licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and United Kingdom Gambling Commission.
