Swedish gambling regulator

Swedish gambling regulator, Spelinspektionen, has issued the first three gaming supplier licences under its new licensing regime.

Licences will be a requirement for all suppliers proving Sweden-licensed operators from July 1, and will ensure that these operators cannot use suppliers who also provide software to offshore brands.

The Enhanced Game Regulation Bill that introduces the new gaming regulations has not yet been passed by the Swedish parliament, but Spelinspektionen announced earlier in the year that it would begin taking licence applications in advance in order to meet the July 1 deadline. It opened the application process on March 1.

Spelinspektionen says that 60 suppliers have so far applied for the five-year licences, which cost SEK 120,000. The three operators granted licences so far are the casino platform provider SkillOnNet, gaming supplier Synot Games and Norrköping AB.

The Swedish gambling regulator believes the new requirement for suppliers will improve Sweden’s channelisation to the legal market while the government believes it will not have other effects of significance for the licence or licensee’s working conditions, competitiveness or conditions in general.

The licensed online gambling sector has largely welcomed the move, although some have called for the introduction of “umbrella permits” to reduce the administrative burden by allowing large suppliers to apply for one permit for all their subsidiaries into of having to submit many applications.
