Swedish gambling company Svenska Spel has become the first Swedish company to implement payments via Swish. This would mean that companies are now able to pay out money to customers in real-time. In addition to regular checks, an additional check is made to confirm that the customer’s own Swish account is the one being used for the payout. Payment will be denied if the information does not match.
Ingela Karlsson of Spelkonto, Product and Service Development at Svenska Spel Tur, said.“For example, if you win a coin at Lotto on Saturday night, you no longer have to wait for several banking days to get your winnings. You can take them out right away and celebrate a little if you like! It is great fun that we can offer our customers this opportunity.”
Svenska Spel Sport and Casino will soon also introduce the same function. This enables all Swiss-connected customers at Svenska Spel Tur or Svenska Spel Sport & Casino to withdraw money from their gaming account as easily and smoothly as they deposit and the money goes directly into the bank account that the customer has connected to Swish.
