IGT signs wide-ranging tech deal with Svenska Spel

29 June 2020

International Game Technology (IGT) has agreed a deal to provide its PlayDigital PlayRGS remote game server solution and PlayCasino online gambling content to Swedish operator Svenska Spel Sport & Casino.

Under the agreement, which will run for a minimum term of three years, Svenska Spel will have access to the complete library of IGT’s PlayCasino game content, as well as maintenance, monitoring and support.

Swedish lottery operator Svenska Spel will also benefit from the IGT PlayDigital PlayRGS solution, which powers sites for more than 100 customers around the world for lottery and commercial operators.

In addition, IGT will provide Svenska Spel with access to its PlayPoker online poker offering, as well as the Intelligen video lottery terminal (VLT) central system, VLTs and content, and land-based casino cabinets and content.

Last month, IGT also announced the launch of its cashless gaming technology at Svenska Spel venues across Sweden.

"The introduction of our powerful PlayRGS remote game server and player-tested PlayCasino digital content, combined with IGT's extensive experience in the government-regulated digital gaming market, will help ensure the ongoing success of Svenska Spel Sport & Casino's digital program,” IGT International’s regional vice president Northern Europe, Jonas Reuter, said.

“As part of our commitment to promoting responsible gaming and sustainably growing our customers' business, IGT was also among the first supporting members to join the Swedish Gambling Association, SPER.

“We will continue to work with SPER and its founding member, Svenska Spel, to contribute to a sustainable gaming market in Sweden.”
