Advertising of gambling in Sweden can be banned during the broadcasting of sports events. The authorities are ready to take extreme measures, despite the liberalization of the gambling market.
As the gambling market regulation system is introduced, gambling advertising in Sweden will be subject to restrictions like in many other countries. According to local media reports, the issue was raised by the Minister of Civil Affairs Ardalan Shekarabi, who considers all sorts of ways to minimize the potential harm from gambling and betting. At the moment, the version of limiting operators' advertising during sporting events and matches is being considered. This approach is now very popular among European countries. For example, in December last year, gambling services providers in the UK came to an agreement on a voluntary ban on advertising during live sporting events. Last week, the gambling regulator in Denmark made a proposal to the government to adopt a similar bill. In Italy they have banned gambling advertising altogether, but experts are against a complete restriction, arguing that it will have the opposite effect.
In the case of the Swedes, Shekarabi said that people are tired of the extremely aggressive marketing and unlimited advertising. He did not limit his statements alone, issuing warnings to operators who received new licenses. The minister reminded that they have a huge responsibility and must meet the requirements of the state as well as adhere to the new gambling laws. Nevertheless, there are cracks in Sweden's liberal system, and aggressive marketing is not the biggest problem. For all its willingness to operate within a regulated market, the new legislation does not define the role of advertising. Given the early stages of implementation of gambling liberalization, it will take time to determine where the limits of moderation are set.
The self-exclusion registry is continually being added to
Local gambling regulator Spelinspektionen reported growing demand for its "Spelpaus.se" self-exclusion program, which currently has more than 20,000 members. The service was launched with the opening of the regulated gambling market, Jan. 1. The aim of the program is that users of online gambling sites in Sweden can block their access to gambling services on the Internet. Only operators with a license to operate in Sweden cooperate with this system. Moreover, one of the conditions for obtaining a new license is the absolute integration with the system of self-exclusion "Spelpaus.se". Violation of this requirement will lead to the revocation of online gambling licenses, as well as the sanctioning of financial penalties.
