BOS calls on Swedish Government to rethink deposit limit change

In June 2021, the Trade Association lambasted the Minister’s “unfounded” claim that there was an increase in online gambling during the pandemic. The Trade association claims the new limit will encourage players to create accounts with more operators, making it harder to monitor their behaviour.

Sweden proposes “special moderation” rule to treat gambling ads like alcohol

Amendments to the gambling act call for "special moderation" in ads. Online operator association BOS has rejected the new proposals. Regulator Spelinspektionen previously praised the proposal. The association has previously objected to parts of the Gambling Market Inquiry and a proposed extension of a deposit cap for gaming. It also has criticized the low investments in marketing. They are concerned about the high proportion of unlicensed gaming in the market. A fourth of all gambling krona leaks out of licensing system when it comes to online casinos.
