Wazdan, the creative games developer company, has announced that it has been granted a B2B supplier license by the Swedish Gambling Authority (SGA) to operate in Sweden in compliance with the country’s new regulations.

With over 100 top-performing titles, such as 9 Coins™, Hot Slot™: 777 Rubies, and Hot Slot™: Mystery Jackpot Joker, and engagement-boosting mechanics, such as Hold the Jackpot, the B2B license is set to strengthen Wazdan’s position in the Nordic market. The company’s commitment to regulated markets is further highlighted by its possession of more than 20 licenses 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. We thank them for a swift, smooth process.
