Swedish poker pros Michael Tureniec and Anton Wigg have signed sponsorship deals with Svenska Spel, the Swedish online gaming operator.

They will join William Thorsson who joined the online poker room last year.

Martin Bengtsson, brand manager for Svenska Spel’s online poker, said, “It is our task to create a positive image of Swedish poker and this work means it is our duty to constantly develop and improve our poker. We see the recruitment of Michael and Anton as yet another stage in this work.

“As a result of getting Thorson on board, we got the confirmation that we are heading in the right direction and now we are strengthening that with our two new ambassadors. It is incredibly fun and a very great honour that three of the highest ranked Swedish poker players have chosen to work with us and Swedish poker.

“They are our new poker ambassadors and, in addition to being visible in our online poker software, they will be involved in working on developing poker in Sweden together with Thorson and ourselves. We need to listen more and be closer to our players and I hope that Michael and Anton can support us in that dialogue.”
