Wazdan acquires a B2B supplier permit from the Swedish Gambling Authority
Wazdan, the innovative games provider, has received a B2B supplier permit to operate in Sweden following the introduction of new regulations by the Swedish Gambling Authority (SGA).
Coming into force on July 1st, 2023, the new rules mean that companies will now have to hold a gaming software permit in order to distribute content in the country.
The move is a significant one for the provider, with Sweden being one of Wazdan’s core markets – proven by their six recent nominations at the upcoming BSG Nordic Awards 2023, with three being for the Nordics.
With over 100 top-performing titles such as 9 Coins™, Hot Slot™: 777 Rubies and Hot Slot™: Mystery Jackpot Joker available alongside engagement-boosting mechanics such as Hold the Jackpot, the granting of the B2B licence continues to strengthen Wazdan’s position in the Nordic market.
It further highlights Wazdan’s commitment to regulated markets, with it currently holding more than 20 licences and certifications worldwide, from New Jersey to the Netherlands.
Michal Imiolek, Chief Executive Officer at Wazdan, said: “We’re delighted to have been granted a B2B supplier permit by the Swedish Gambling Authority and we thank them for a swift, smooth process. It also serves as a testament to the consistent hard work of our Compliance team, making sure we’re compliant with regulatory requirements and player safety obligations in iGaming markets around the globe.
“The Nordic market is an important one for us and we’ve been an active supplier in the region for some time, so we’re excited to be able to keep entertaining Swedish players for years to come.”
