This week Sweden's gaming regulator Spelinspektionen announced that they're attempting to clear the air with licensed gaming operators over the various issues that have caused betting groups to face heavy fines.
Sweden began offering regulated online betting on January 1st, and issues began popping up immediately thereafter, as unclear rules have resulted in violations by operators, some of who are the biggest in the world. The country's gaming regulator, tax agency, financial police, and Swedish Consumer Agency will hold a meeting with operators on September 17th, where concerns can be addressed.
The meeting will hopefully make the rules more apparent to operators and bring up issues that can be fixed on the regulatory side of things as well.
Swedish gaming operator advocacy group Branschföreningen för Onlinespel (BOS) helped organize the meeting, and they issued a statement, which read in part: "The purpose of the meeting is to increase the understanding between the market players and the authorities."
We'll be reporting on the meeting and updating readers as we learn more.
