At the end of the year, the new Gaming Act came into force.
It entails a new license for 66 companies, which must nourish their customers better – among other things through spelpaus.se
All companies must be linked to a website that allows customers to opt out of games on all sites. At the same time, they should be protected from direct mail.
In addition, gaming companies must have clear tools for players who want to take control of their games.
But the new law was criticized after several flaws were discovered.
Minister of Civil Affairs asks gaming companies: "Shots"
Players who registered for spelpaus.se stated that they can still play on sites that are related to it. The players also said they still received direct mail.
Earlier in January, the Public Health Office left a number of comments to the gaming inspection, which deals with the supervision of the toy companies.
– Our responsibility and mission is to ensure that the actors comply with the legislation. Just how we do it, I can not get in, but that's the current thing on our side, My Hammer, a press officer, told earlier about the criticism.
Now, the new Minister of Civil Affairs, Ardalen Shekarabi (S) – who has been working for several years on the new law on games – seeks to strengthen gaming companies.
– Your shot is. Because we will not see between the fingers, he says in an interview with the LTO.
– From now on, there will be very difficult demands for actors who perform activities under the Swedish games legislation and if crossing the border, there will be very serious consequences.
A new judgment should be run by gaming companies
The Game Inspectorate has not yet penalized any company for violating the new rules – and the Minister for Civil Affairs believes that the authority's priority is to handle all license applications.
The new law also states that gaming companies can only make "moderate" advertising. What is considered moderately will be crystallized in the first verdict against the Ninja Casino filed by the Consumer Agency to obtain instructions on what it refers to, writes DN.
"The authorities have the opportunity now to take action, and when they do so, the legal application will show where the borders go", says Arslan Shekarabi.
