The potential buyers of the Svenska Spel gaming monopoly are welcome. The government is selling off the parts of the monopoly. The games that are less likely to lead to gambling addiction are on sale.
The government’s gaming commission is working on modernizing and strengthening Sweden’s gaming regulations. The gaming commission is also responsible for the examination of various gaming companies and making decisions whether to allow these companies to participate in the market or not.
As for the sale itself, the gaming commission has to judge whether the sale is appropriate from the point of social protection aspects and Sweden’s obligations under EU law.
