To date, 57 gaming companies have received gaming licenses according to The Swedish Gambling Authority. There remain several applications that need to be tested and decided and the work on licensing continues after the turn of the year. Note that the new Swedish gaming law comes into force on January 1, 2019, and it is important that gaming companies comply with its rules. In the statement clarified that is forbidden to conduct gambling activities without a license and this prohibition also applies to those who have applied for a license but have not yet received a decision. Anyone who violates the rules may risk not obtaining a license.

"Since one of the purposes of the game reform is to achieve a high channelization, it is gratifying that so many gaming companies will have a Swedish license from January 1, 2019," says Director General Camilla Rosenberg.
