Banning online casinos in Sweden due to Covid-19 will be a huge mistake

Following media reports that the Swedish government is currently considering a possible temporary ban on online casino gambling in the country, Fintan Costello, managing director of Bonus Finder, an independent portal for casino users, said that such a decision would be “a colossal mistake "And will lead to a boom in the black market as thousands of residents are already flocking to unlicensed online casino operators.

“The Swedish government will make a colossal mistake if it decides to temporarily close online casino sites to protect players. Our research has shown that almost a third of online casino players are already looking for a better deal on the black market since restrictive rules were introduced in Sweden in January 2019. These latest government plans could lead to an immediate boom in the black market for gambling. ”

Earlier, Sweden’s minister in charge of gambling, Ardalan Shekarabi, said the government would be forced to act tough if gambling operators did not take their own action to slow the surge in online gambling during the Covid-19 pandemic.
