New Measures by Swedish Government to Ensure a Safe Gambling Market
The Swedish government submitted a report to Sweden’s Law Council with proposals to exclude illegal players from the Swedish gambling market and counteract the manipulation of results in sports. The new measures should be introduced in Swedish law before 1 July 2023.
The Swedish government presented a proposal with a number of new measures to the Swedish parliament on 17th May 2022. The new measure aims to create a gambling market that is sustainable in the long term.
The Swedish Gambling Act of 2018 proposes to ban unlicensed gambling from the Swedish gambling market and to give the Gambler's Authority a wider scope of authority. The Authority will be able to investigate payment service providers in Sweden that are not abiding by the Payment Services Act.
Measures to Fight Match Fixing are proposed by the Swedish government. The Swedish Gambling Authority is responsible for the supervision of all gambling and lottery activities in Sweden. It reports to the Ministry of Finance and the government appoints its board.
