Despite EU demands for an open and fair online casino gambling market, Sweden is still refusing compliance with this police. In fact, the country has a very well protected state monopoly keeping foreign online casinos out of the market and at the same time prosecuting betting and gambling companies that force themselves into the market.
In view of that, Sweden has been criticized on a number of issues. And one of the claims is that Sweden’s regulations do not prevent underage gambling. To get rid the country of unneeded criticism, Swedish officials have announced new gambling regulations that add age restriction to all gambling going through the state monopoly. So, now Swedish citizens can start gambling from the age of 18 only.
