Swedish lottery and gaming operator Svenska Spel has posted a 1% rise in revenue for the second quarter of 2022.

The Group’s revenues increase as Casino Cosmopol was open this year. The Group’s earnings and operating margin decrease slightly as a result of increased costs in priority investment areas, but also as an expected effect of a focus on sustainable gaming.

“We see a positive development in the share of healthy income as a result of our strengthened gaming responsibility measures. We continue to provide our customers with entertaining gaming experiences in a responsible way, as we want gaming to be a joy for everyone,” Patrik Hofbauer, President and CEO of Svenska Spel, said.

The Svenska Spel Group’s net gaming revenues for the quarter are SEK 1963 M (1938), an increase of 1% compared with the same quarter last year. Operating profit of SEK 531 M (574) is a decrease of 7% and the operating margin amounts to 27% (30). The reduction is due to higher costs for, among other things, investments in technology and product development.

Net gaming revenues for the Sport & Casino business area decreased during the quarter by 19% compared with the same quarter last year. The investment in strengthened gaming responsibility measures has the intended positive effect on the proportion of sound revenues and customers, but, as expected, has a negative effect on revenues. The sports games also face strong comparative figures as last year included a major championship.

For the Tur business area, net gaming revenues are at the same level as the corresponding quarter last year. The launch of two draws per week for Eurojackpot has been successful and during the quarter, Eurojackpot reached its highest ever record for online gaming.

Net gaming revenues for the Group amounted to SEK 1963 M (1938), an increase of SEK 25 M or 1%. The increase is explained by the fact that the casino operations were closed during Q2 2021.

The Group’s operating profit amounted to SEK 531 M (574), a decrease of SEK 42 M or 7%. The decrease is explained by higher costs for, among other things, investments in technology and product development.

Test your sword-wielding skills in this fantasy adventure VR action game

Thirdverse, Inc. today launched the VR sword-fighting actual game ALTAIR BREAKER for the Meta Quest 2, Oculus Rift and Valve Index. Players can test their sword-wielding skills, team up with three friends and battle against AI creatures in an expansive fantasy world. ALTAIR BREAKER will be available for purchase starting today at 10:00AM PDT, at a set price of $24.99 on Steam and Meta Quest Store.

Teruyuki Toriyama, Producer at Thirdverse, said: “ALTAIR BREAKER was developed by combining the VR game development know-how gained by the young game creators of “Swords of Gargantua” with more advanced consumer action game techniques. The idea was to create a new VR sword-fighting action game that can be easily enjoyed by users who are new to VR games, rather than the realistic sword-fighting simulators often seen in VR. The setting of this work is a virtual world called “ALTAIR,” an abandoned island in the void ruled by an experimental combat AI. The worldview incorporates elements typical of Japanese fantasy anime, such as mecha and fantasy, as its main theme. Players can easily experience sword-fighting action that transcends reality, just like a hero in such a world in VR. We hope you will enjoy the high-speed VR multiplayer sword-fighting action that is unique to this title. We will also continue to collect everyone’s feedback in order to deliver more and more content that our users can enjoy.”

To commemorate the release of ALTAIR BREAKER, ongoing campaigns will be open for everyone to participate in and have a chance to win a Meta Quest 2 headset and an Amazon Gift Card of the value of $300, as well as livestream on Twitch on selected channels with our partner creators.

Key Features in ALTAIR BREAKER:

  • Transcendent VR Sword-Fighting: Designed with casual players in mind, ALTAIR BREAKER brings a “new generation of VR sword-fighting action” to the VR world featuring high-speed sword-fighting action, blow-ups, aerial combos, and wide-range attacks with special moves.
  • Unique Battle System:Move from map to map while enjoying the feeling of transcendent sword fighting. Take advantage of your surroundings by climbing and gliding to easily take on enemies.
  • Experience a wide range of attacks only possible in the VR world, like Shockwaves and Surge Mode.
  • Expansive World of ALTAIR: The game takes place in an aerial city ALTAIR, where AI was created to develop singularity-like creatures. Once a group of islands in a sea of clouds, most of the islands have collapsed and only floating ruins remain, which are inhabited by LAWS, the experimental battle AIs left behind and free to wander around.
  • Freedom of Movement: Glide through the air using your glider or climb the walls of a fortress as movement is possible in all directions in VR space. The entire map is your battlefield!
  • Cross-Platform Four-Player Co-Op: Multiplayer gameplay between Meta Quest 2 and PCVR, leaving players free to be matched with players from all over the world and communicate via voice chat.
