Open Letter of Swedish iGaming Operators urges Finance Minister Shekarabi to Rethink Online Casino Restrictions  0   
It seems like legitimate request, with very logical reasoning. The problem is that it is a political issue with many stakeholders. I guess that the politicians have pressure from both online and online aides and the decisions are made by who had more power. I'd this is the case, then all the reasoning won't help. The online players should find a way to have more leverage.

I didnt read every word of this news,but as I see there will be lot of restrictions for players who live in sweden,how much money they will deposit on casino site,how big bonuses will be and limits on playing time!its low limit,especially for this kind of country where salaries are big,so cant say that is fair for players!

Even though COVID 19 kept the world at home in Sweden, it was not so. There I saw people on the street in videos and from what i read on the internet they had no restrictions at free movement on the streets. Interesting is that: those casinos were closed, even if players they could enter and play there at any time.

There were restrictions, just never had full detention. They had to keep social distancing and had regulation over places that had people in them like restaurants and shows.
The way they acted want such a great success, where although Israel is not much smaller and much more crowded, Sweden had more than 20 times the death rate.
There economy is probably in better state though.

Swedish government wants to protect its people from undesirable uncontrolled betting behavior and many losses . That's why t has proposed all these new measures , to secure the gambling market . But on the other hand , it should have consulted the online gambling operators and businesses , before reaching the final decisions on the measures they would take . They know more efficient ways to protect their customers , so as them to bet safely and within limits Smile

I just answered Calicul on his point. Prior to that I wrote I thought that this move is the right one, but I'm not sure it will help, because it involves politics and money, so logic itself could be not enough in the end of the day.
I do hope all nations will find a way to let online poker be legal, with restriction to help avoid bad behaviour and addiction and to see that the crime sindicates are left out of this.

He doesn't know what he's talking about, but he opens his mouth in vain. He is the most desperate member to collect points but in Sweden it has been possible to play at casinos for a long time. After that i don't know what happened because i didn't watch in continuation.

there is no need to answer to person that dont know what a hell he talking about,dont know what to wrtie except thing about corona,even in this big news there is only a one word about this virus (only to say about that period),not a single problem in sweden about this,but he just spaming in every thread about it,just to collect 50 points per day,even he dont play casino games,now he stopped to play poker,even he play almost only freerolls and tournaments with max 1 $ buy in and there is no point from his posts at all!
how can anybody write about things in sweden and their casinos,where only thing in this text is about how players from this country will gamble online and how they will make deposits and how strict they will be!so where the hell he find words that nobody else see and that he write did they had open casinos or not!

These temporary onl;ine restrictions for gambling , aare a little late or is it my imagination ??? lol . Corona virus crisis is going for the better , things are being improved , cases are less , isolation is less , things return step by step to normality , people return gradually to their jobs . So now less play poker or casinos online , than 1 month or more ago . Now it's not the time for these restrictions on gambling by the swedish government Smile

Playing online was the best in this world and if Sweden did not want to do something good for certain gambling operators... it is their decision and cannot be changed, if they do not want to change something. In each country the laws are a little different.

I try not to take anything here personally. When I see something that looks ignorant I reply so it doesn't just stand there.
I don't care about why people post here or what they might say about me. Like all the rest of the people here, I say what I think about the bees articles.
No worries, just keep on posting what is on your mind

roeish3 its point to talk about subject in news,right?its not point to spam from third post of thread and to talk about something that its not even mentioned in this big text!ofcourse third post isnt yours,we know who write it!on what would look this forum if we would write in every thread about what we want and not why is subject open?
about subject,hope somebody will change this law about online gambling and that people will have freedom to do with money whatever they want and not to have only 500 e limit per week and this small bonus for deposit!

betting companies know which of their customers tend more to play recklessly , without limits , on tilt , with gambling problems . Thye can analyse their players' data , and find the ones with these kinds of problems , and impose to them some restrictions for their own good . Swedish government should take this into consideration before deciding measures on its own , in order to protect the betting companies' customers .

You are right, of course, but I don't see it as harsh as you. He needs to write, we don't have to read, and life is too short to take this seriously.
We are all here to have fun, so I will try to take things lightly as much as I can, as long as it don't get to personal.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend 😊

Roeish3, you don't have to talk with him because he is the frustrated number 1 in BRM. He did not know what was in Sweden but he wants to contradict without a real reason. Operators and industry associations condemn the new rule and their anger is right.

Most of the times, the measures taken from each government is a big fail.
The excuse is to protect their citizens, while actually another scheme is running
on the back ground.
I wonder if some of the ones that are deciding for the measure have ever gambled
before. For example i read here there will be a time limit where you can play.
Lets say you are playing poker, doing a bad start, and when you finally start getting
good results and payouts... your time is up... ?

no he dont need to write,he can write,thats big difference!I will repeat again,he dont know what he talking about as always,he write just to collect points,he dont read news and its not normal what he do!one of rules at this forum is that you cant spam and that you cant write in some thread something that its not about subject!so when his first post in this thread is about corona (he only write about corona for last three months in almost every thread) and there are nothing about corona in this news,ofcourse I will say that he is very stupid and that he just write because of 10 points!
only point in this thread is to see that residents of sweden will have new rules about online gambling,their deposits and bonuses!so this has nothing with corona situation in sweden,did they closed schools,casinos,restaurants or anything else and how many dead people they had!do you get me now?
its only about new restrictions with online things and how players from this country will gamble!

I read on another forum about some other restrictions the Swedish goverment had imposed on the poker industry , why make things worse for some businesses , ofcourse to protect the interests of your local casinos , absolutely rational . These last years too many countries impose restrictions , and regulation obstacles to poker operators and casinos online , now this is not sth new . I wonder , I don't know if the Swedish government is the same concerned for players playing live on casinos in the past , lol . Wo can play and who not , what games are allowed (somefreerolls were not able to be played there in the past , lol ) , a mess . So , on the bottom line , these measures are not so much to protect players, but to make their gablng habits online harder and more problematic .

Politicians are the ones who think the laws and because of that there are restrictions all over the world. They proceed according to their interest. In my country there are only 4 poker rooms and only a few casinos or sports betting houses. These barriers need to be rethought.
