hile unregulated gambling operations have clearly experienced a considerable growth over the past several years, regulated ones have seen a slight drop in sales. Turnover generated by operators that have been licensed by the local Gambling Authority amounted to SEK17.1 billion in 2016, down SEK17.26 billion in 2012.

The provision of gambling services in Sweden is mostly controlled by the local monopoly – Svenska Spel. However, it has been for years now that international operators have been providing their online gaming and betting products to local gambling customers. Despite operating without a license, it cannot be said that they have done so illegally, as a significant amount of legal fuzziness currently reigns over the country’s gambling landscape.
