Svenska Spel Sport & Casino MD Fredrik Wastenson commented: “We naturally carried out a thorough market review with regard to our choice of Live Casino partner. We are confident that Evolution Gaming offers the very best solution for Svenska Spel and it's 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.”
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.”
Sebastian Johannisson, Evolution’s Chief Commercial Officer, added: “We are proud of our market-leading Live Casino solutions and content, and we are confident of their ability to bring excitement and joy to existing and new Svenska Spel customers.
