The launch is expected to take place in the first quarter of 2017 and will be handled by LeoVegas' current organisation and existing resources.
"LeoVegas continues to grow in regulated markets," comments Gustaf Hagman, Group CEO and LeoVegas co-founder. "The fact that we have in a short time been granted licences in two regulated markets shows that we are delivering in accordance with our expansion strategy. But it also shows that we have high capacity and quality in our organisation and in the work, we do. I am convinced that our market-leading sport product will contribute to strong growth in Ireland."
With this market clearance LeoVegas now has gaming licences in Malta, the UK, Denmark and Ireland.
The Irish online gaming market is worth an estimated GBP 880 million in 2016, according to H2 Gaming Capital.
