    That's mostly not a bad result overall. Our industry still needs all the help and support that it can get.

    Don't forget checking out the Netherlands guys: Senate has approved the new online gambling bill recently. Gambling permits will be handed out soon to online casinos. Finally, 100% legal online gambling. I expect a 'gambling boom' in the Netherlands.

    Sweden is a hell of a market for online casinos, I don't understand why more Countries are following in their footsteps as well.

    Book of Ra Jackpot Edition: A chance at winning a Jackpot
    Book of Ra Deluxe: most popular of all variants

    I have only ever promoted to UK traffic but seem to get a few hits from Sweden. I was wondering if to enhance advertising for the Swedish market if anyone could advise if there are any strict rules when advertising for Swedish traffic which differs from the UK?
