New online casino safety measures floated in Sweden
The government of Sweden has introduced new legislation that could require iGaming business-to-business software suppliers to be licensed. Sweden already has a large number of commercial land-based and online casino and sportsbetting services.
Swedish government wants to introduce a ban on unlicensed gambling and a market disruption fee for online casinos and sportsbetting providers. It also wants legislative support for information on developing iGaming trends. It may also introduce penalties for those who disruptively market their products via e-mail.
New online casino safety measures floated in Sweden. Shekarabi wants to crack down on unlicensed operators and limit excessive advertising from legitimate providers. The Finance Ministry recommended in June that the Scandinavian nation’s online gaming market should be subject to ‘special moderation” measures similar to those already in place for the promotion of alcohol.
Swedish Trade Association for Online Gambling is against new rules limiting its membership's marketing activities. The association supports measures to reduce unlicensed gambling but is negative about the government's proposal for additional restrictions on gambling.
