Stockholm-listed live dealer specialist Evolution Gaming has been selected to launch a new live dealer casino solution for Swedish state-owned operator Svenska Spel.

Following up on Evolution’s deal earlier this week with Swedish horse racing operator AB Trav och Galopp (ATG), the new Svenska Spel Live Casino service will go live following the re-regulation of the country’s gaming market on January 1st 2019.

The operator will have access to Evolution’s full portfolio of live games, including exclusive poker variants and side bets.

“We naturally carried out a thorough market review with regard to our choice of live casino partner,” said Svenska Spel Sport & Casino managing director Fredrik Wastenson. “We are confident that Evolution Gaming offers the very best solution for Svenska Spel and its 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.”

Evolution Gaming CEO Martin Carlesund commented: “This is 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.”

The supplier’s chief commercial officer, Sebastian Johannisson, 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. We are looking forward very much to 2019 and to helping Svenska Spel maximise its opportunities in the new re-regulated market.”

Shares in Evolution Gaming Group AB (STO:EVO) were trading up 0.44 per cent at SEK568.00 per share in Stockholm Thursday morning.
