Spelinspektionen Penalises United Lottery Solutions

  • 0


Spelinspektionen, the Swedish gambling regulator, has issued an official warning and financial penalty of SEK700,000, around $73,30o on United Lottery Solutions, after the operator breached national laws on lottery betting.

The regulator said that United Lottery Solutions had been offering players in Sweden the opportunity to bet on the outcome of various lottery games via its Lottoland.se site, including Eurojackpot.

State-owned Svenska Spel holds the exclusive licence to market lottery games in the country, including Eurojackpot, and Spelinspektionen said that it did not grant permission to United Lottery Solutions to offer betting on its lotteries.

Spelinspektionen also noted United Lottery Solutions has been offering online scratchcards via Lottoland.se, despite this form of gaming not being covered by its Swedish licence.

The regulator said that although United Lottery Solutions has now stopped offering betting on Swedish lotteries and scratchcards, such activities had been going on for some time and the violations were judged as serious.

Spelinspektionen said the warning and penalty fee is based on the severity of the infringement and the operator’s turnover on the Swedish market.
