CEO Emil Sunvisson, who took up his responsibilities on August 1, commented: "Some countries have recognized that the gaming industry, if handled correctly, can contribute positively to economic development. Instead of preventing private actors and trying to maintain a monopoly, we should be open to and embrace the rapidly evolving gaming industry.

Cherry calls [on the Swedish government] for modern legislation, where we are allowed to operate gaming with responsibility and are able to compete on equal terms.

"Cherry offers casino onshore, offshore and over the internet. Our three business areas have great similarities, but also important differences in terms of regulatory framework and technical barriers. The respect for the player and the treatment of our customers are fundamental to our success, regardless of where we offer our services."
