Live dealer technology and games provider Evolution Gaming has scored one of its biggest contracts yet following an agreement with the giant Swedish gambling monopoly Svenska Spel to provide its product when the Swedish gambling market is liberalised early next year.
Svenska Spel will have access to Evolution’s full portfolio of live games, including exclusive poker variants and side bets.
Svenska Spel is Sweden’s largest gaming company and includes such well-known brands as Lotto, Triss, Stryktipset, Oddset, Vegas and Casino Cosmopol.
Fredrik Wastenson, md of Svenska Spel Sport & Casino said that the company carried out a thorough market review before selecting a live dealer provider.
“We are confident that Evolution Gaming offers the very best solution for Svenska Spel and its current and future players. Evolution’s world-class Live Casino will mean not only the best possible choice of live games for our players, but also highly enjoyable and secure gaming experiences,” he explained.
Martin Carlesund, group CEO at Evolution Gaming, said: “This a truly ground-breaking agreement between our two companies, both of which are very deeply rooted in Sweden. Sweden is a key market for Evolution, and we are honoured to have been selected by such a big name in that market as Svenska Spel.”
