Elena Kvakova, Head of US Expansion at Internet Vikings, also commented: “Hosting has always been our strong suit and our main product. As we were learning the ins and outs of the gambling hosting regulations and market in the USA, we noticed a few things that could be done better.
“And to us, a Swedish company, an agile approach and customer focus are at the forefront of everything we do. That is what we are trying to do in the key states right now – set up secure, reliable, cost-effective and fully formed hosting solutions, so that the new providers that are entering the US market will be able to focus on other things.”
