L&L Fined By Swedish Regulator

Casino operator L&L Europe Ltd has been fined SEK600,000 by Swedish regulator Spelinspektionen for failing to adhere to the country's self-exclusion regulations.

The company failed to enforce self-exclusion requests from punters between April 28th, 2019 to May 6th, 2019. L&L says that the breaches were due to the company changing their supplier for bank ID verification. The group says that they've fixed the issue, and has returned all deposited funds to a self-excluded player who was able to bet during the period.

Spelinspektionen deemed the breach to be serious, but the regulator considered that L&L fixed the issue themselves in deciding not to suspend the group's license. The fine was instead set at 0.1% of L&L's turnover annually.

L&L operates fourteen different brands, including Norge Casino, HyperCasino, No Bonus Casino, and others.

While it falls on the operator to make sure their software is compliant, I think it's good that the company moved to take action once they realized they were out of compliance. The fine reflects that, but I think the regulator should have given them credit for noticing and taking action.

Swedish regulations are quite tough and it's often that operators are being fined for one reason or another. To be fair, I was expecting a bigger breach as this one only reflects on a few days and the amount is pretty big for a fine.
