Pragmatic Play, the Malta-based internet gaming company is going to be able to offer its vast array of content, live in Sweden with Svenska Spel Casino and Sport.

Pragmatic Play is going to provide its full content of games to the operator, allowing its Swedish customers to access titles such as Da Vinci’s treasures, Wolf Gold, the multi-award winning slot, and Great Rhino to name a few.
The Head of the Svenska Spel Company, Jonas Nygren, stated that they are delighted with this new deal. He added that Pragmatic Play has such a high-quality portfolio of slots and other games that are full of innovations and that they are happy to offer such content to their Swedish players. He added that they are looking ahead to this exciting and fruitful partnership to go forward.

The Chief Commercial Office of Pragmatic Play, Melissa Summerfield, praised the new deal of the organization, following a successful twelve months of expansion with the likes of Kindred and PokerStars.
