It;s really funny . Whenever politicians take some measures , vote for some new laws or rules , to restrict players' freedom , to predetermine their betting behavior , choices , spendings (which means also their overall winnings on the long run) , or when they decide new criteria for whom will be able to operate on their country and whom not , they always say this is for the best of their citizens , tpo protect them from reckless behavior , scammers or not safe businesses . Not that they want to protect the interests of their rich fellow countrymen buddies , who pay them a lot to do so , lol .

The do not pretect them overally with these measures , better advice poker rooms or casinos to put some limits on the great losers in their platforms or lobbies , maximum daily or monthly losses to protect them , only for the great losers without big bankroll or fortune . All others need no pretection , definetely not from the state/government , lol .

If they want to help players , the minimise the tax on their winnings , invite a lot more businesses from other countries to operate in their region , do not put obstacles , so as for the market and the economy to work more efficiently for the benefit of players and businesses Smile Care for some basic riules in the market YES , but total controf of the rules and the buyers' decisions definetley NO

In Romania, politicians want to sign a law not to demand taxes for those who have slot machines. I don't know where it will end up, because this news is that the Government will no longer tax the income obtained from slot gambling for moment.

in this case big problem is that they want to make rules how much money you will spend on gambling on some site and dont understand why they care what people will do with their money and how much they will spend on it!its not about tax or something that they will earn as goverment,they care what kind of bonuses players will get?!very stupid!

Players can restrict themselves from gambling if they have many losses or if they have lost conrtol , the can exclude themselves for some time , maybe months , self banned , many rooms offer this feature , or they can ask the support to help them with this matter . Also , casinos and poker rooms can identify the ones needed help , so eveyone else can play the way he wants and the money he wants , without any restricttion .

These swedish government's decisions are exaggerations , they could have asked casions or poker rooms to set a plan , but no very restrictive , not for all players , only for the ones who really need it , who have uncontrollable hug losses . Everyone else should not have llimitted freedom in gambling or choosing how to spend THEIR money Smile

Politicians do not care about these things because they always win by legal or illegal methods. They don't think about people and in many cases don't even think about casinos. Their main purpose is always for their benefit...

Not all restrictions in such games are bad.
There are too many degenerates out there, that these measures will prevent them from
losing their money in a flash.
It is an addiction one way or another and many have ruined by this.
So at some point reviewing the rules in order to prevent such phenomena is not a bad thing.

I agree. I heard of too many people that this game messed their lives up. It doesn't only affect them - Here we had a guy murdering his parents to repay poker debts. This had turned public opinion against poker that takes years to overcome.
One of the problems with online betting is that it is always available and if you are a real addict, sooner or later it could destroy your life.

but all of you are not get points from this news and its not only about how much money players will deposit on site!its about bonuses that they cant get anymore,time of playing that they will spend and much more!its just not same and maybe this problem with deposit limit will be on only one site,maybe you will be able to make deposit on other site and on next one and so on!
