Paf was awarded a Swedish Online Gambling Licence by the Swedish Gambling Authority. The Swedish Gambling Licence is another important step in Paf’s long-term strategy to grow in locally regulated markets.
Paf’s licence application was approved by The Swedish Gambling Authority (SGA) on 20 December 2018. Paf’s licence for online gambling and betting in the newly regulated Swedish market is effective from 1 January 2019.
Paf is a popular company in Sweden and has campaigned for the regulation of the Swedish gambling market for many years. The Åland-based company has operated licenced gambling on cruise ferries in Swedish waters since 1974. The new online licence follows an extensive application process and is Paf Group’s 5th online licence for a locally regulated market.
