The Portuguese licence comes after 888 was last month also granted approval to offer its online gambling services in the newly regulated Swedish market, which launched on January 1.

It is also the sixteenth licnence to be issued by SRIJ since the country's regulated igaming market opened for business in June 2015.

In addition to Portugal and Sweden, 888 holds licences in the UK, Spain, Italy, Denmark, Ireland and Romania, as well as Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware in the US.
