Spelinspektionen conducted an investigation and found that NordicBet offered weekly surprises, cash draws, free spins, and other promotions to punters. The site was also found to be offering lottery games, which aren't sanctioned in Sweden. The group was handed a stern warning and a large SEK19 million fine. SkillOnNet was found to have its brands also offering daily bonuses, cash back, monthly rewards, VIP offers, and more. Likewise, they were hit with a warning and SEK14 million fine.
Sweden's gaming laws only allow for bonuses to be offered once per player when they sign up. The rules went into effect on January 1st.
For their part, NordicBet said that they're appealing the fine, as they believe the statute to be vague and they don't believe they've broken the laws. Both groups have said that they've gone through and changed their promotions to comply with the country's requirements.
