The Hellenic Gaming Commission (HGC) of Greece has granted Swedish online gaming and betting firm Betsson licenses for both online casino and sports betting products and services.

In a press release on its website, Betsson announced that it will be launching both casino and sports betting products under the Betsson name in the coming weeks.

The two licenses — one for casino games and slots, and another for sports betting — will run for an initial period of seven years

In the press release, Pontus Lindwall, President and CEO for Betsson AB said:

“We are really pleased to receive these licenses and to welcome Greece as Betsson’s 18th locally regulated market. As in other markets, our vision for Greece is to offer the best customer experience possible and we have partnered with some great gaming suppliers and payment providers to augment our offering. The Greek gaming market has experienced significant growth over the past years, and we see a lot of potential”

The announcement is the latest development in Betsson’s efforts to expand into new markets and follows the recent news that the company had acquired a 35% stake in Strive platform to support its launch in the US.
