Svenska Spel has become the first company in Sweden to implement payments via Swish.
The Swish payouts service means that companies can pay out money to customers in real-time. In addition to regular checks, an additional check is made to confirm that it is the customer’s own Swish account that is being used for the payout. If the information entered does not match, the payment will be denied.
“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, ” Ingela Karlsson, responsible for Spelkonto, Product and Service Development at Svenska Spel Tur, said.
Svenska Spel Sport and Casino will also introduce the same function shortly. In practice, this means that all Swiss-connected customers at Svenska Spel Tur or Svenska Spel Sport & Casino can withdraw money from their gaming account as easily and smoothly as they deposit. The money goes directly into the bank account that the customer has connected to Swish.
“You can sum it up as Sweden is at the forefront here and that Svenska Spel is at the forefront in Sweden. But for us, it’s just about making it as easy as possible for our customers,” Rickard Wahlin, customer service manager, said.
