Three operators have been warned by Sweden's gambling authority Spelinspektionen for failing to include necessary information on their websites.
Sweden's national gambling authority determined that businesses violated section 17 of the country's gambling rules by neglecting to provide information on deposit limits, self-exclusion alternatives, and playing time measurement in their disconnection sections.
The Swedish regulator stated that while the violations were not significant, they were "neither trivial nor unacceptable." The bingo operator Tombola, the operator Multilotto Multi Brand Gaming, and the operator SuperLottoClub More Tech Group are all engaged.
Additionally, the More Tech Group was cautioned for failing to comply with sections 7 and 8 of the Swedish rules by neglecting to include contact information on its website.
Each of the three operators remedied the violations by updating their websites with the required information.
Spelinspektionen also warned AB Trav och Galopp (ATG) and Polar Limited last week for breaking Swedish sports betting laws.
The ATG business broke Sweden's prohibition on betting on the performance of athletes under the age of 18, as well as the prohibition on betting on fouls resulting in penalties, reservations, or red cards in the case of Polar.
Meanwhile, the Jönköping Court of Appeal dismissed eight applications from operators seeking to avoid fines for collecting wagers on sporting events by minors.
Spelinspektionen revealed the findings of a new poll earlier this week, indicating a rise in the usage of unlicensed gaming sites in Sweden. 7 percent of the 3,208 respondents to the regulator's latest poll indicated they used a site that was not allowed in Sweden, a four-point rise.
