With our Nordic Affiliate Conference returning to Stockholm in late March, this issue we provide expert analysis and data on the region’s largest market following its recent regulated opening.

With Sweden’s raft of innovative operators and suppliers able to compete on home turf on a fully legal basis for the first time, regulation there is set to provide a tipping point for igaming in the region, growing the share of revenues from licensed offerings from 61.5% to 80.5% and the market by 28% to €4.5bn within five years, according to H2 Gambling Capital.

As well as the exclusive dashboard from our principal data provider, we get the lowdown on the turnaround of one of Sweden’s big two operators from Betsson’s Pontus Lindwall, an update from local analysts on how operators are adapting to the new market conditions and explore the potential of Trustly’s Pay N Play solution to revolutionise registration and KYC processes beyond the Nordics.

Enjoy the issue.
