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. Kindred believes the government’s response has been pragmatic and enabled the society to be as open as possible. 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.

BOS calls on Swedish Government to rethink deposit limit change

BOS calls on Swedish Government to rethink deposit limit change. BOS has been critical of Minister Ardalan Shekarabi in the past. 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.
