    Default Swedish gambling market thriving with help from unlicensed operators

    According to Swedish regulator Lotteriinspektionen, gross gaming revenue in the market increased by 1.2% to SEK16.8bn (1.4bn/€1.6bn/$1.8bn) for the first three quarters of 2018, but there has been a decline in the amount generated by licensed operators. Companies that hold licenses in the county generated SEK12.2bn in Q3, down 2.4% year-on-year, whereas unlicensed firms saw their collective revenue climb 12.4% to SEK4.5bn.

    Sweden will introduce new iGaming regulations in January 2019.

    Svenska Spel remains Sweden's largest gaming operator with SEK6.4bn in revenue, though this was down 1.6% on the previous year due in part to a 9% drop in land-based gaming revenue. In contrast, online gaming revenue jumped 23% year-on-year.

    From Lotteriinspektionen:

    Market share for operators with Swedish permits was 73% in the first three quarters, while operators without Swedish permits had a market share of 27%. Online gambling increased by 12.9%, while land-based gambling decreased by 8.4%. Betting increased by 13.6% and online casino increased by 11.9%.
    Also, as discussed by Buzzy a few weeks ago, nearly 60% of Swedes aged 18 to 74 have a registered gambling account, up 12% from last year, but foreign brands make up 60% of accounts registered in the past 12 months.

    How do you think that Svenska Spel will be affected by the new gaming law? They probably will have to step up their way of marketing since all the soon-to-be-licensed bookies will have to adjust their marketing efforts to comply with the new law.
