The Swedish Game Investigation is being sawed

The Swedish Minister of Civil Affairs, Ardalan Shekarabi from the Swedish Labour, accepted the game investigation in March, which means that gaming companies such as casino and betting companies must be regulated. Thus the Swedish monopoly of monopoly must fall.

The game survey was welcomed by many (half) Swedish gaming companies such as Kindred (Unibet), Betsson, LeoVegas, NetEnt among others. The game investigation, however, hit the patrol soon enough.

The purpose of the game investigation is to get rid of unscrupulous players from the market, but this is no guarantee, Mathias Lundeberg said from Swedbank when he spoke to SvD.

The game monopoly will go away and the market is about to be opened. But despite licensing proposals and strengthened consumer protection, it becomes difficult to quit unscrupulous gaming companies.
– They will remain as long as you can make money, says Mathias Lundberg, equity analyst at Swedbank.

Jimmy Nilsson at Spelberoendes förening [Association for Gambling Addicts] is also skeptical about the game investigation and the demolition of the Swedish gaming monopoly. He aims, among other things, at the match fixing in May and believes that this will be even more widespread with an abolition he says to proletären [The Proletarian; a Swedish newspaper].

At the same time, Ardalan Shekarabi concludes that match fixing and match fixing attempts are something that will be prioritized high.
