Strängnäs, Sweden (December 16, 2022) — The general public about gambling is the name of the annual survey that the Gambling Inspectorate conducts to find out about Swedes’ gambling habits. The survey was carried out at the end of November 2022 in collaboration with the survey company SKOP.

The survey shows, among other things, that:

  • 72 percent of all Swedes have gambled for money in the past 12 months. It is largely the same level as at the measurement in 2021.
  • 38 percent have gambled in the past week, which is an increase of 4 percentage points compared to the previous survey.
  • 71 percent of players have played lotteries and number games, which is thus the most common form of gambling.
  • 85 percent of all players play at home, which is on par with the measurement in 2021.
  • 62 percent of those who played in the last year are aware of the self-exclusion register Spelpaus.se. In 2021, the figure was 59 percent.
