Kindred Group Disapproves Sweden’s New Proposed Gambling Restrictions

Kindred Group has written a written response to the Swedish government's proposal for temporary restrictions on licensed online gambling due to pandemic.

The company thinks the restrictions are ill-founded and do not meet the criteria of evidence-based policymaking. The simplest solution would be to impose the same restrictions as before. It is also concerned that the measures make it more difficult for licensed gambling companies to fulfil their duty of care and have a negative impact on channelling.
