Sweden’s liberalised gaming regime to return power to the state

In the past, Sweden has been staunchly against liberalising its market away from the state-owned monopoly, despite numerous formal letters having been delivered by the European Commission (‘the Commission’). Sweden is now opting to change its laws, not only to comply with Article 49 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (‘TFEU’), which guarantees the free movement of services, but also to regain control of its gaming market. As of 1 January 2019, Sweden will become a fully regulated market, following the aptly named bill ‘A Re-Regulated Gambling Market’ being passed by the national legislature. Denitza Dimitrova, Partner at Denitza Dimitrova Consultus, provides insight into Sweden’s gaming market and the changes that will be brought about.
