Swedish Stock Exchange has the largest number of online gambling companies

Published

on

Stockholm’s stock exchange seems to be most preferred destination of European online gambling companies. The stock exchange hosts as many as such companies. Most of them arrived during the last year or so, following a wave of IPOs beginning in 2017.

This is a welcome news for the industry, as the country is preparing for structural re-regulation and liberalisation of its online gambling market.

LeoVegas, Aspire Global AB, Cherry, Kindred Group, and Betsson are  companies who have opted either for Nasdaq Nordic, known to be the main Stockholm board, or the First North market over the past years.

Danish developer of online gaming products Better Collective was the latest company to float on the Stockholm stock exchange. It started trading its shares on the main Nasdaq Stockholm market on June 8.

As mentioned above, the Swedish capital currently has 19 listed companies operating in the European online gambling industry, beating out the London Stock Exchange which is currently home to 16 gambling companies.

As many as seven iGaming companies have listed on the Nasdaq Nordic or First North markets since the beginning of 2017, with those being Global Gaming, Scout Gaming, Evolution Gaming, Better Collective, Cherry, Aspire Global, and LeoVegas, Bloomberg notes. Some of these have listed through initial public offering, others have moved from other platforms.

The business news outlet further points out that the companies’ performance has varied after their listing. Aspire Gaming has thus reached a 35 per cent increase in its post-listing fortune, while LeoVegas has slumped 30 per cent.

In terms of market value, London still accounts for the largest portion of European online gaming and betting companies’ collective value. However, it is important to note that Stockholm and London together currently account for 78 per cent of the total market value of gambling companies across the continent, with Greece, France, and Spain comprising top 5.

According to Nasdaq Head of European Listings Adam Kostyal, Stockholm has become an attractive stock exchange due to its well-developed community of experts and investors as well as local entrepreneurs’ reputation of early adopters of technology and innovation. The expert further told Bloomberg that he expects more listings by both local and international gaming and betting companies to take place in near future.

Sweden’s new gaming act aims to replace the country’s Lottery Act of 1994 and the Casino Act of 1999 and will scrap Svenska Spel’s monopoly over the provision of the majority of legal gambling services in the country.

The New York Lottery has recorded $8.2 billion in sales for the state fiscal year that ended in March 31, 2019. That includes sales from Powerball, Jackpot, Mega Millions, Scratch Off, Quick Draw and other games, plus revenues generated by the state’s licensed video lottery locations.

The video lottery net win for the 2018-2019 fiscal year was $2.08 billion, third largest in the world behind two Italian lottery operators. The combined sales and net win earnings for the last fiscal year are a new record for the New York Lottery. The New York Lottery generated $3.47 billion in aid designated to support the state’s schools.

The lottery revenues are distributed to school districts according to the same formula used for state aid. A larger, poorer district will receive a higher percentage than a smaller, more affluent one. Lottery contributions account for 13% of all state aid to education for 2018-2019.

Spillemyndigheden, the Danish industry regulator, has launched a new whistleblower scheme for the employees of gambling operators who wish to report evidence of money laundering.

Spillemyndigheden has detailed that employees can report a company’s violation or potential violation of the anti-money laundering legislation to the regulator via a dedicated, anonymous contact form which will then trigger a legal investigation. All submissions will be encrypted to ensure that submissions are secure.

In April, Spillemyndigheden has blocked access to 25 gambling websites after petitioning the country’s telecommunications providers. Danish internet providers have now been obliged to block access to ten igaming sites, in addition to 15 skin betting websites.
