Spelinspektionen issues warning to Tombola for information failings

| By Marese O'Hagan
Sweden's Gaming Inspectorate (Spelinspektionen) has issued a warning to bingo operator Tombola for breaches of its guidance about displays of information on Tombola's sites.

Spelinspektionen stated that Tombola infracted section 17 of Spelinspektionen’s regulations by failing to include information about deposit limits, self-exclusion options and time of play measurement on Tombola’s desktop and mobile sites.

Tombola cooperated and corrected the infraction by including all necessary information on the site.

Spelinspektionen classified the breach as not serious, but “neither minor nor inexcusable”.

Yesterday, Spelinspektionen also issued warnings to licensees Multi Brand Gaming and More Tech Group for similar breaches of section 17.

More Tech Group received a further caution for infringing sections 7 and 8 of Spelinspektionen’s regulations, as the company did not display contact information on its website.

Yesterday, a survey from Spelinspektionen also suggested an increase in players using unlicensed gaming sites in the country. The survey also found that players who played on unlicensed sites admitted more readily than other players that their gaming increased during the coronavirus pandemic.
