SWEDEN: New Swedish gambling legislation from 1 January 2019

Since the new gambling legislation came into effect in Sweden on 1 January 2019, a number of gambling license applications have been submitted to the Swedish Gambling Authority (Sw. Spelinspektionen).

On 27 December 2018, the Swedish Gambling Authority stated that it had received 88 applications for online gambling and betting. As of today, 60 applications have been granted.

To retain a granted license, each licensed gambling operator must obtain certification for their technical solution by an accredited body before 1 July 2019. If such certification is not obtained, the approved license will be revoked.

If you have any questions regarding the new Swedish Gambling Act, please contact Christopher Büller (christopher.buller@dlapiper.com) or Jessica Lorne (jessica.lorne@dlapiper.com).
