MrGreen became the latest company to receive approval to operate online gambling sites in Sweden. In a press release, the company announced that its subsidiaries Mr Green Ltd and Evoke Gaming Ltd had been granted two licenses by state regulator Lotteriinspektionen, allowing it to offer its sites, which include Mr Green, Redbet, Vinnarum, Bertil, and MamaMiaBingo, effective January 1, 2019.
MRG CEO Per Norman said, “We are especially happy about the strong emphasis on responsible gaming in the Swedish regulation since Green Gaming has been part of our strategy since the start of the company ten years ago.”
Sweden passed legislation in June that officially opened its online market to international operators, though some had already established a presence in the country. By regulating these foreign companies, the Swedish government gets an 18% cut from revenues, on top of payments for licenses, which remain valid for five years.
