Swedish Spelinspektionen issues last warning

23 Jan 2019

SwedenIt has been only a little bit more than 20 days since the new regulation took effect, but the 66 new Swedish licensees have already started causing problems, forcing the Swedish regulatory body Spelinspektionen to send a letter of warning to them, calling them to fully comply with the laws. In fact this was not the first warning, on the contrary, it seems like it will be the last one since the people of Spelinspektionen told that they feel sick and tired from issuing constant warnings to the gambling operators.

In the letter, Spelinspektionen told that “many complaints and tips on deficiencies in gaming companies in several different areas.”. More specifically, the most serious violations are that some licensees failed to check customers’ names before permitting them to gamble, or sending them promotional material inviting them to gamble since many of the names were under self-exclusion from gambling.

Additionally, the Swedish regulatory body noted that all the licensed websites have to prominently feature the Spelpaus logo and make sure that the link is active. From now on and after the latest warning, any website not complying with these requirements will face the consequences that have been set from Spelinspektionen. Just for starters, there could be a financial penalty of up to 10% of a licensee’s turnover, or even revocation of the license.
