Spelinspektionen issues warnings for information failings

| By Marese O'Hagan
Sweden's Gaming Inspectorate (Spelinspektionen) has issued warnings to two licensees regarding breaches of regulations around the display of information.

According to Spelinspektionen, Multilotto operator Multi Brand Gaming Ltd breached section 17 of the Spelinspektionen’s guidelines and regulations on gaming, by not including information about deposit limits, self-exclusion features and play time information on the logout sections of its mobile and desktop website.

In response, Multi Brand Gaming Ltd fixed the issue and included all necessary features in the logout area of its site.

Spelinspektionen also issued a warning to More Tech Group Ltd, which operates SuperLottoClub, for breaching section 17, as the operator hadn’t included deposit limit information and the ability to time play in it its own logout area.

Further, More Tech Group Ltd was found to have breached sections 7 and 8 of the Swedish Lottery Inspectorate’s guidelines and regulations on commercial online gambling and betting, due to the lack of significant contact information on its website.

More Tech Group have since fixed all outstanding issues.

Spelinspektionen justified the warnings by classifying the breaches as not serious, but “neither minor nor excusable”.

Last week, after Spelinspektionen issued a host of fees and penalties to licensees in 2019 for offering bets on sports games involving under 18s, a judge rejected eight appeals from the licensees, but reduced two of the penalty fees.
