Sweden – PokerStars launches in SwedenBy Phil - 7 January 2019
PokerStars and BetStars have announced the launch of their respective online and mobile poker, sports betting and casino products in the newly regulated Swedish market on January 1, 2019. The launch follows receipt of a licence from Sweden’s gambling regulator Lotteriinspektionen in December 2018.
The new framework gives players based in Sweden full access to poker games and tournaments at PokerStars.se and FullTilt.se, initially approximately 370 markets across 25 sports and specialist betting options at BetStars.se, and 490 games at PokerStarsCasino.se and FullTilt.se/casino. The products will be available to players in Sweden across desktop, web and mobile devices on both iOS and Android.
“We’re proud to offer our full range of PokerStars and BetStars products under Sweden’s new regulatory framework,” said Guy Templer, Chief Operating Officer of Stars Interactive Group, a division of the Stars Group. “Clear regulation is a big step forward for Sweden’s players and its licensed online betting and gaming industry, and provides us with a great opportunity to offer our products and services to Swedish customers.”
