The Swedish Gambling Authority replaced the Lottery Gambling Authority with the enactment of the new Gambling Act in 2018. This authority controls all forms of legal gambling in the country, including casinos, sports betting, lotteries, bingo, and others. Online casino and sports betting are open to renowned operators, while land-based casinos are state-owned. An online license holder from outside the country who doesn’t reside in the European Economic Area (EEA) must have a local representative in Sweden. A license for online commercial gambling costs SEK 400,000, and so does a license for online commercial sports wagering. Should an operator choose to obtain both, a combined fee of SEK 700,000 can be paid.
