Svenska Spel is the largest poker room in Sweden. It is controlled by the Swedish government, which means that it’s a safe and reliable place to play poker, but which also means that it’s very strict.
When you sign up, you are required to enter your Swedish citizen number, which means that only residents of this country can play here. But don’t worry, because we got you covered! We can offer Svenska Spel accounts for rent.
Svenska Spel Traffic
The website is great overall, being among the top 20 in the world and among the top 10 private websites dedicated to just one country. At peak times it can have up to 1,200 active players, which is great for a website that does not have worldwide traffic.
There are a multitude of available games at various stakes, and as you can imagine, the currency used is the Swedish krona (SEK). Cash games are available in formats of 2 max, 5 max or 10 max players. At peak times there are several No Limit tables available at micro stakes, about 6 tables at NL 50 / NL 100 USD, around 4 tables at NL 200 USD and also 4 tables of high stakes of over 400 USD. The stakes can go as high as NL 5,000 USD, where professional players are giving fierce battles.
There are also unlimited tables of Heads Up games, and about 3 tables of Omaha for every stake up to 200 USD. When it comes to high stakes Omaha games, there is only occasional action, with players usually in the waiting list. The highest stake for Omaha is also 5,000 USD.
The website also includes Sit & Go-s and Multi Table Tournaments. Most of the traffic here can be found at the micro stakes. The only exception is for the Heads Up Sit & Go-s of up to 100 USD, where the traffic is decent.
Svenska Spel Software
The software overall is good and functional but is definitely not among the best in the world. It works ok if you play up to 5 tables at once, but don’t bother trying more than that.
The software does work with trackers like Holdem Manager 2 and Poker Tracker 4, but then it starts lagging and working very slowly, only getting you angry.
Svenska Spel Deposits and Withdrawals
The website supports the most common payment methods allowing credit and debit cards, bank transfers and electronic wallets. Since the website is controlled by the government, you can rest assure that you will never lose your money or the company might go bankrupt.
So it is one of the safest platforms in poker worldwide. Deposits are instant with credit cards and e-wallets, while withdrawals take around 3-4 days.
So overall Svenska Spel is a safe place to play poker, with plenty of action and a low rake. While you can only sign up with a Swedish ID, contact us and we will rent you an account for a good price.
