Swedish Government Urges Strengthened Cooperation Between Spelinspektionen and Finansinspektionen to Counter Illegal Gambling
Strängnäs, Sweden (May 5, 2023) — The work to ensure a healthy and safe gambling market and the fight against illegal gambling is of the highest priority for Spelinspektionen, the Swedish Gambling Authority.
At the turn of the year, several tightening of the Gambling Inspectorate’s powers were introduced, and even more, will be introduced at the turn of the next six months.
As part of the work, the Government is now also giving the Swedish Gambling Authority and Finansinspektionen (the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority) the task of strengthening cooperation in order to have a better opportunity to have control over monetary transactions during gambling.
“The strengthened cooperation with the Financial Supervisory Authority will provide good conditions for all tools to be used efficiently and result-oriented, which we see as very positive,” says Director General Camilla Rosenberg.
