Casino.se Interview BOS Secretary General on the Future of Swedish Gambling

STOCKHOLM, November 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Gustaf Hoffstedt talks to Casino.se, one of Sweden's largest online casino review sites, about the impact of new legislation on players 

Sweden's online gambling monopoly is set to undergo massive changes when legislation aimed at tackling unregulated online gambling goes into effect on January 1, 2019.

In store is a new licensing system meant to provide stronger protections for players, while essentially closing the country's doors to unregulated and unlicensed gambling websites.

The state will also be able to "introduce a central self-exclusion system for players with gambling problems and addiction," Gustaf Hoffstedt, BOS Secretary General, told online casino review site Casino.se in an exclusive interview this week.

While satisfied with the legislation's current wording, Hoffstedt did admit work still needs to be done to benefit Swedish casino players. "Bonus rules need work in that the upcoming licensing scheme prohibits loyalty (VIP bonuses), and instead promotes offers for new account holders."

Hoffstedt also predicted the consolidation of several gambling operators as of January 1st, and said he believes major sporting teams would likely take advantage of new sponsorship opportunities with gambling websites in Sweden.
