From January 2019 Sweden will be a licensed gambling market and Nordic Leisure (NLAB) has today filed its license application for casino, betting and bingo. The application is fully in line with NLAB:s strategy to create growth in regulated gaming markets.

"The fact that Sweden becomes a regulated gaming market from 2019, and that we now have filed our well elaborated application, feels very good and is something we have been looking forward to for a long time. Our background with many years of experience of acting in regulated jurisdictions, provide conditions for good possibilities also in the Swedish market. We see, provided that our application is granted, great possibilities to increase our market share and we consider that we have both technical capabilities, brands and an organization in place to do this" says Robert Andersson, CEO of NLAB.

During the first six months of this year NLAB:s share of gaming revenue from regulated markets was 88.0% of the total gaming revenue.

Regulated markets open up for more marketing channels and affect the experience for the end user positively since for example more payment methods are available. A regulated market is based on responsible gambling which is the basis for our entire business operations. Functions such as centralized registries will be excellent tools to work for responsible gaming. The license obligations in Sweden are extensive and are based on the concept of adequacy, something that NLAB welcomes.
