Svenska Spel Gets Penalty By Swedish Gambling Authority

Sweden’s Gambling Authority today announced the decision in its oversight regarding Svenska Spell Sports & Casino’s 2021 mandatory state work. Svenska Spell Sports & Casino is eyeing the comments, but the company notes that it is not sharing the authority’s assessment.

Sweden’s Gambling Authority has decided to issue warnings and administrative fines of 100 million Swedish krona to Svenska Spell Sports & Casino.

“We agree with the decision of the Swedish Gambling Authority. The regulatory period is from October to December 2021, and we have already resolved many opinions. We have a high level of ambition in our work on responsible gaming. Since the introduction of the state duty in 2019, it has become clearer how it should be interpreted through the Swedish Gambling Authority’s guidance and supervision decisions. We have adjusted our work as the picture becomes clearer. We are constantly developing our work, methods, and technical capabilities to meet our own high ambitions, as well as laws,” says Fredrik Wassenson, president and business area manager at Svenska Spell Sports & Casino. 바카라사이트 추천

Svenska Spell Sports & Casino has further developed responsible gaming since the 2021 regulatory period, including reviewing the income of customers seeking to set high gaming limits and choosing care calls more accurately. Customers who cannot reach care calls will be closed until they can to ensure gambling is controlled. Svenska Spell Sports & Casino has also introduced additional protections for younger customers ages 18 to 19.

“When it comes to how to assess the risk of gambling problems, we start with evidence-based research, measuring our own impact, and an overall assessment of our customers’ behavior based on current legislation. The Swedish Gambling Authority makes other evaluations that are further afield than can be deduced from current regulations in its decision. We will now consider whether to appeal that decision,” says Fredrik Wassenson.
