Spelinspektionen

Spelinspektionen CasinosThe Swedish gambling authority, known as the Spelinspektionen is the gambling regulator in Sweden that began operating on January 1, 2019, when the market was opened to operators. The legal framework for gambling was the product of the 2018 Gambling Act, which was enacted by the Swedish parliament. It applies to all gambling activities in Sweden offered from local and foreign operators.  The market began with around 31 licenses to lottery inspectors but has grown since then. Any operator who wants to provide their services to players in Sweden must hold a license.

The Spelinspektionen ↱ is responsible for making sure that the Swedish market for gambling and gaming is safe, legal and reliable. Ultimately, they want to protect society from potential harm. The regulator has a reputation for being tough on operators that breach the terms of their license. In the past, we've seen the regulatory body fine, ban and warn operators for breaches.

Safe and fair games without misleading advertising

One of their tasks is to cut down on the number of gambling and illegal operators. While they do not have the power to investigate suspected crimes, they do work with prosecutors and police. The authority can ban unlawful outfits.

Also, they ensure that gaming is fair, transparent and free from money laundering and fraud. There is also the further task of protecting vulnerable people, including those who have a gambling addiction or underage.

Operators must not create misleading or false advertisements to get players to play more. Also, operators cannot use bonuses to entice players to play more. Bonuses offered to players must present the important T&C. A bonus can only be offered to new players once and on their first deposit. The tightening of regulations has meant that some casinos have decided against offering bonuses to Swedish players.
The implication of only permitting a player to benefit from one bonus is that players are excluded from tournaments, extra spins promotions, deposit promotions, cashback bonuses, rewards, gamification or loyalty schemes used to induce players to play. While this has its benefits, it arguably also puts players at a disadvantage compared to players from other countries. Of course, this is a matter of perspective.

As gambling online is a worldwide phenomenon, the regulator realises that it cannot operate in a vacuum which is why it collaborates with other regulators such as the UK Gambling Commission.

Swedish online casino license checks

You can confirm whether an online casino is Swedish licensed by viewing the list of licensed operators (in Swedish) ↱. Unfortunately, there is no search function which is something that the regulator may look at in the future. Still, you can see the status of a casino's license as well as find out about any prior sanctions.

Remember that an operator licensed in Sweden must continuously meet the conditions of its license or risk punishment. These conditions all centre around protecting the interests of players and society at large. Failure to comply can result in sanctions, suspensions and/or fines.

Exclusion List: Spelpaus.se

Spelpaus.se is a self-exclusion list available in Sweden. Here, players can register their names to self-exclude from participating in online casino games. Online casinos licensed in Sweden through the Swedish Gambling Authority are prohibited from signing up and/or taking deposits from any player whose name is in the registry. This also means that registered casinos must abstain from sending promotional communications to the player.

Do you have a complaint?

If a problem develops at your online casino where you feel that you've been harmed, you can file a complaint with the authority. Remember that the regulator is not there to act as a go-between, so they will not solve an issue between you and the casino. File your complaint by contacting the General Complaints Board of Sweden instead.

The most frequent dispute involves unpaid winnings. If this is the case or not, you should try to work out the problem with the casino first through customer support.

Message the regulator on their website ↱ to inform them about a casino that has acted inappropriately.
